WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
•
lead from lead-based paints,
•
crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
•
arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust
masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

DOUBLE
INSULATION
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
_,
WARNING: The double insulated system is
intended to protect the user from shock resulting
from a break in the tool's internal insulation. Observe
all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical
shock.
NOTE: Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and should
be performed only by a qualified service technician. For
service, we suggest you return the tool to your nearest
authorized service center for repair. Always use original
factory replacement parts when servicing.
ELECTRICAL
CONNECTION
This tool has a precision-built electric motor. It should be
connected to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz,
AC only (normal household current), Do not operate
this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop
will cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
your tool does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double-check the power supply.
EXTENSION
CORDS
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting
in overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size required in an extension cord.
Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension cord
that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is
designated with "WA" on the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.

TO THE SAW TABLE
WARNING:
A 12 in. blade is the maximum blade
capacity of your saw. Never use a blade that is too
thick to allow outer blade washer to engage with
the flats on the spindle. Larger blades will come in
contact with the blade guards, while thicker blades
will prevent the blade screw from securing the blade
on the spindle. Either of these situations could result
in a serious accident and can cause serious personal
injury.

LINE
See Figure 21.
See Figure 22.
•
The laser guide will generate a red colored line on the
work surface when the blade is spinning above 500 rpm.
The red laser line will appear as a broken line on the
workpiece when the blade assembly is in the uppermost
position and the motor switch is activated. This broken
line will let you see your mark and your laser guide line at
the same time, and will assist you in lining up your mark
for more accurate cutting of the workpiece.
Unplug your saw.
See "To Install Blade" on page 19 of this operator's
manual.
•
Make sure inner blade washer is in place before
positioning saw blade on the spindle of your saw.
NOTE: The laser guide replaces the outer blade
washer.
•
Place the laser guide onto the spindle, aligning the
double "D" flats in the laser guide with the flats on the
spindle.
Align the laser line and your mark with the blade at the uppermost position. Once both lines are in alignment, do not
move the workpiece until after you have finished cutting.
•
Position flat surface of laser guide against the blade.
Warning labels are visible when laser guide is mounted
properly.
As the blade assembly is lowered toward the workpiece,
the broken line will become solid.
•
Depress spindle lock button and secure laser guide
using only the special hex key bolt provided.
Make several practice cuts on different styles and thickness of material.
Follow the directions below for using your laser guide.
NOTE: The hex key bolt has left hand threads. Turn
bolt counterclockwise to tighten.
Removing Your Mark:
Position the laser line near the left edge of your mark on
the work surface in order to remove the mark.
•
Using the blade wrench provided with your saw,
tighten bolt securely.
•
Remove the blade wrench and return it to the storage
area in the saw's base.
To Cut Your Mark:
Position the laser line near or over your mark on the work
surface in order to cut the mark.
•
Replace the lower blade guard and blade bolt cover.
To Leave Your Mark:
•
Retighten phillips screw securing blade bolt cover.
Tighten screw securely.
Position the laser line near the right edge of your mark on
the work surface in order to leave the mark.
_
After you have become familiar with using your laser
guide, you will be able to remove, cut, or leave your mark
on the work surface. Practice will teach you the correct
position for aligning the laser line with your mark.
DANGER: Laser radiation. Avoid direct eye contact
with light source.

workpiece or move clamp to the right side of the base.
MITER CUT
A compound miter cut is a cut made using a miter angle
and a bevel angle at the same time. This type of cut is
used to make picture frames, cut molding, make boxes
with sloping sides, and for certain roof framing cuts.
To make this type of cut the control arm on the miter table
must be rotated to the correct angle and the saw arm
must be tilted to the correct bevel angle. Care should
always be taken when making compound miter setups
due to the interaction of the two angle settings.
WARNING: To avoid serious personal injury, always
tighten the miter lock levers securely before making
a cut. Failure to do so could result in movement of
the control arm or miter table while making a cut.
•
Fig. 37
TO COMPOUND
Rotate the saw table until the pointer aligns with the
desired angle on the miter scale.
Tighten the miter lock handle securely.
_
WARNING: To avoid serious personal injury, always
keep your hands away from cutting area. Never perform any cutting operation freehand (without holding
workpiece against the fence). The blade could grab
the workpiece if it slips or twists.
COMPOUND
MITER CUT
Adjustments of miter and bevel settings are interdependent with one another. Each time you adjust the miter
setting you change the effect of the bevel setting. Also,
each time you adjust the bevel setting you change the
effect of the miter setting.
It may take several settings to obtain the desired cut. The
first angle setting should be checked after setting the
second angle, since adjusting the second angle affects
the first.
Once the two correct settings for a particular cut have
been obtained, always make a test cut in scrap material
before making a finish cut in good material.
TO MAKE A COMPOUND
•
•
CUT
Pull out the lock pin and lift saw arm to its full height.
Loosen the miter lock handle.
Fig. 38
27
•
•
Before turning on the saw, perform a dry run of the cutting operation just to make sure that no problems will
occur when the cut is made.
Grasp the saw handle firmly then squeeze the switch
trigger. Allow several seconds for the blade to reach
maximum speed.
•
Slowly lower the blade into and through the workpiece.
•
Release the switch trigger and allow the saw blade to
stop rotating before raising the blade out of workpiece.
Wait until the electric brake stops blade from turning
before removing the workpiece from miter table.
SUPPORT
LONG WORKPIECES
See Figure 40.
Long workpieces need extra supports. Supports should
be placed along the workpiece so it does not sag. The
support should let the workpiece lay flat on the base
of the saw and work table during the cutting operation.
Use the optional work clamp or a C-clamp to secure the
workpiece.
_
WARNING" To avoid serious personal injury, always
keep your hands outside the no hands zone; at least
3 in. from blade. Never perform any cutting operation freehand (without holding workpiece against the
fence). The blade could grab the workpiece if it slips
or twists.

CUTTING
CROWN
MOLDING
When setting the bevel and miter angles for compound
miters, remember that the settings are interdependent;
changing one angle changes the other angle as well.
Your compound miter saw does an excellent job of cutting crown molding. In general, compound miter saws do
a better job of cutting crown molding than any other tool
made.
Keep in mind that the angles for crown moldings are very
precise and difficult to set. Since it is very easy for these
angles to shift, all settings should first be tested on scrap
molding. Also most walls do not have angles of exactly
90, therefore, you will need to fine tune your settings.
In order to fit properly, crown molding must be compound
mitered with extreme accuracy.
The two contact surfaces on a piece of crown molding
that fit flat against the ceiling and the wall of a room are at
angles that, when added together, equal exactly 90. Most
crown molding has a top rear angle (the section that fits
flat against the ceiling) of 52 and a bottom rear angle (the
section that fits flat against the wall) of 38 °.
LAYING
TABLE
MOLDING
When cutting crown molding by this method the bevel
angle should be set at 33.85 The miter angle should be
set at 31.62 either right or left, depending on the desired
cut for the application. See the chart below for correct
angle settings and correct positioning of crown molding
on miter table.
FLAT ON THE MITER
The settings in the chart below can be used for cutting All
Standard (U.S.) crown molding with 52 ° and 38 angles.
The crown molding is placed flat on the miter table using
the compound features of your miter saw.
See Figure 41,
To use this method for accurately cutting crown molding
for a 90 inside or outside corner, lay the molding with its
broad back surface flat on the miter table and against the
fence.

TRAVEL
Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the
factory for making very accurate cuts. However, some of
the components might have moved out of alignment
during shipping. Also, over a period of time, readjustment
will probably become necessary due to wear. After
unpacking your saw, check the following adjustments
before you begin using saw. Make any readjustments that
are necessary and periodically check the parts alignment
to make sure that your saw is cutting accurately.
PIVOT ADJUSTMENT
•
The saw arm should rise completely to the up position
by itself.
•
If the saw arm does not raise by itself or if there is play
in the pivot joints, have saw repaired by a qualified
service technician at your nearest Sears Service Center
to avoid risk of personal injury.

REPLACEMENT
See Figure 46,
It has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated wear and possible premature failure when they
are used on fiberglass boats, sports cars, wallboard,
spackling compounds, or plaster. The chips and grindings
from these materials are highly abrasive to electric tool
parts such as bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not recommended that this tool be used
for extended work on any fiberglass material, wallboard,
spackling compounds, or plaster. During any use on these
materials it is extremely important that the tool is cleaned
frequently by blowing with an air jet.
Your saw has externally accessible brush assemblies that
should be periodically checked for wear.
•
Remove brush cap with a screwdriver. Brush assembly
is spring loaded and will pop out when you remove
brush cap.
LUBRICATION
•
Remove brush assembly.
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit
under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further
lubrication is required.
•
Check for wear. Replace both brushes when either has
less than 1/4 in. length of carbon remaining. Do not
replace one side without replacing the other.
•
Reassemble using new brush assemblies. Make sure
curvature of brush matches curvature of motor and
that brush moves freely in brush tube.
•
Make sure brush cap is oriented correctly (straight) and
replace.
•
Tighten brush cap securely. Do not overtighten.
