RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION (Continued)
Safety is a combination of common sense, staying alert, and
knowing how your table saw works. Read this manual to
understand this saw.
17. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp
and clean for better and safer performance. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
18. DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, blades, bits,
cutters, etc., all tools should be disconnected.
1. KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the operator's
manual carefully. Learn the saw's applications and
limitations as well as the specific potential hazards
related to this tool.
2. GUARD AGAINST ELECTRICAL SHOCK BY
PREVENTING BODY CONTACT WITH GROUNDED
SURFACES. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges,
refrigerator enclosures.
19. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES.
Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from tool before turning it on.
20. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure switch is
off when plugging in.
21.
3. GROUND YOUR SAW. Make sure that your saw is
properly polarized with an approved ground connection.
4. ALWAYS KEEP THE BLADE GUARD AND RIVING
KNIFE (SPLITTER) IN PLACE and in working order.
5. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents. DO NOT leave tools or pieces
of wood on the saw while it is in operation.
6. AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. Don't use
power tools in damp or wet locations or expose to rain.
Keep work area well lit.
7. KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. All visitors
should wear safety glasses and be kept a safe distance
from work area. Do not let visitors contact tool or
extension cord while operating.
8. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD-PROOF with padlocks or
master switches, or by removing starter keys.
9. DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer
at the feed rate for which it was designed.
10. USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed for. Don't use it for a purpose
not intended.
11. DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, or jewelry. They can get caught and
draw you into moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonskid
footwear are recommended when working outdoors.
Also wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
12. ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE
SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only impactresistant lenses; they are NOT safety glasses.
13. PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask
if the cutting operation is dusty.
14. PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
15. DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to disconnect
from receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp
edges.
16. DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
MAKE SURE YOUR EXTENSION CORD IS IN GOOD
CONDITION. When using an extension cord, be sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. A
wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended
for an extension cord 25 feet or less in length. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage
number, the heavier the cord. See Extension Cord
Caution on page 38.
22. USE OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is
used outdoors, use only extension cords with approved
ground connection that are intended for use outdoors
and so marked.
23. KEEP BLADES CLEAN AND SHARP. Sharp blades
minimize stalling and kickback.
24. KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA. Keep
hands away from blades. Do not reach underneath
work or around or over the blade while blade is rotating.
Do not attempt to remove cut material when blade is
moving.
WARNING: Blades coast after turn off.
25. NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor could ignite fumes.
26. INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY. If damaged,
have repaired by a qualified service technician at an
authorized service facility. The conductor with insulation
having an outer surface that is green with or without
yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If
repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is
necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
conductor to a live terminal. Repair or replace a damaged
or worn cord immediately. Stay constantly aware of cord
location and keep it well away from the rotating blade.
27. INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and
replace if damaged.
28. KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM OIL
AND GREASE. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning.
Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any solvents to clean tool.
Page 4
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION (Continued)
29. STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE CONTROL. Watch
what you are doing and use common sense. Do not
operate tool when you are tired. Do not rush.
39. USE THE RIGHT DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work
into a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of
blade or cutter only.
30. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly
and perform its intended function. Check for alignment
of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of
parts, mounting and any other conditions that may affect
its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged must
be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized
service center to avoid risk of personal injury.
40. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN POWER OFF. Don't leave tool until it comes to a
complete stop.
31. DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT TURN IT
ON AND OFF. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service center.
32. GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback occurs when
the blade stalls rapidly and workpiece is driven back
towards the operator. It can pull your hand into the blade
resulting in serious personal injury. Stay out of blade
path and turn switch off immediately if blade binds or
stalls.
33. USE RIP FENCE. Always use a fence or straight edge
guide when ripping.
41. AVOID CUTTING NAILS. Inspect for and remove all
nails from lumber before cutting.
42. NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts during
use.
43. NEVER START A TOOL WHEN ANY ROTATING
COMPONENT IS IN CONTACT WITH THE
WORKPIECE.
44. DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL, OR ANY
MEDICATION.
45. GROUND ALL TOOLS. If tool is equipped with threeprong plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole
electrical receptacle.
46. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them
frequently and use to instruct other users. If you loan
someone this tool, loan them these instructions also.
34. SUPPORT LARGE PANELS. To minimize risk of blade
pinching and kickback, always support large panels.
35. BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
36. USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use blades
with incorrect size holes. Never use blade washers or
bolts that are defective or incorrect. The maximum blade
capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254 mm).
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement
parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or
cause product damage.
37. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
improper accessories may cause risk of injury.
38. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur
if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally
contacted.
WARNING:
Remove all fences and auxiliary tables before
transporting saw. Failure to do so can result in an
accident causing possible serious personal injury.
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.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES FOR THE
BT3000 TABLE SAW
1. ALWAYS USE BLADE GUARD, RIVING KNIFE, AND
ANTI-KICKBACK PAWLS on all "through-sawing" operations. Through-sawing operations are those in which
the blade cuts completely through the workpiece as in
ripping or crosscutting. Keep the blade guard down, the
anti-kickback pawls down, and the riving knife in place
over the blade.
2. ALWAYS SECURE WORK firmly against rip fence or
miter fence.
3. ALWAYS USE A PUSH STICK FOR RIPPING NARROW STOCK. A push stick is a device used to push a
workpiece through the blade instead of using your
hands. Size and shape can vary but the push stick must
always be narrower than the workpiece to prevent the
push stick from contacting the saw blade. When ripping
narrow stock, always use a push stick, so your hand
does not come close to the saw blade. Use a featherboard
and push blocks for non-through cuts.
4. NEVER perform any operation "freehand" which means
using only your hands to support or guide the workpiece.
Always use either the rip fence or miter fence to position
and guide the work.
5. NEVER stand or have any part of your body in line with
the path of the saw blade.
6. NEVER reach behind, over, or within three inches of the
blade or cutter with either hand for any reason.
7. MOVE THE RIP FENCE out of the way when crosscutting.
8. NEVER use rip fence as cutoff gage when crosscutting.
9. NEVER attempt to free a stalled saw blade without first
turning the saw OFF and disconnecting the saw from the
power source.
10. PROVIDE ADEQUATE SUPPORT to the rear and
sides of the saw table for wide or long work pieces. Use
a sturdy "outrigger" support if a table extension more
than 24 inches long is attached to the saw.
11. AVOID KICKBACKS (work thrown back toward you)
by:
A. Keeping blade sharp.
B. Keeping rip fence parallel to the saw blade.
C. Keeping riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, and blade
guard in place and operating.
D. Not releasing the work before it is pushed all the way
past the saw blade using a push stick.
E. Not ripping work that is twisted or warped or does not
have a straight edge to guide along the fence.
12. AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause your hand to
move into the cutting tool.
COVER OF GROUNDED
OUTLET BOX
GROUNDING
PIN
Figure 1: Electrical
13. CHECK WITH A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN or service
personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properly grounded.
14. USE ONLY CORRECT ELECTRICAL DEVICES: 3wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs
and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool's plug.
15. DO NOT MODIFY the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
16. USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES listed
in this manual or addendums. Blades must be rated for
at least 5,500 rpm. Use of accessories that are not listed
may cause the risk of personal injury. Instructions for
safe use of accessories are included with the accessory.
17. DOUBLE CHECK ALL SETUPS. Make sure blade is
tight and not making contact with saw or workpiece
before connecting to power supply.
18. MAKE SURE THE WORK AREA HAS AMPLE LIGHTING to see the work and that no obstructions will
interfere with safe operation BEFORE performing any
work using the table saw.
19. ALWAYS TURN OFF SAW before disconnecting it, to
avoid accidental starting when reconnecting to power
supply.
20. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them frequently and use to instruct other users. If you loan
someone this tool, loan them these instructions also.

FEATURES
WARNING:
Although some of the illustrations in this manual are
shown with the blade guard removed for clarity, do not
operate the saw without the blade guard unless specifically
instructed to do so.
A. OPERATING COMPONENTS
The upper portion of the blade projects up through the table,
surrounded by an insert called the throat plate. To cut wood
at a bevel, the blade must be tilted, using the blade adjustment handle, scale, and bevel indicator found on the front of
the cabinet. Inside the cabinet, adjustable positive stops are
provided for 0 and 45 degrees.
The sliding miter table assembly is used for all crosscutting
operations. The miter fence is easily adjusted to cut wood at
an angle by loosening the adjusting clamp, setting the fence
to the miter scale, and retightening the clamp. The sliding
miter table, which rests on a base mounted on the rails, can
be repositioned along the rails for wide work. It can be
reversed so the projecting base is in the back. It can also be
moved from the right side to the left side as needed. With the
miter fence removed the miter table offers additional support
for other operations such as ripping.
Your saw includes a rip fence and an accessory table. The
accessory table can be moved from the right side of the saw
to the left side as needed. The rip fence is used to position
work that will be cut lengthwise. A scale on the front rail
shows the distance between the rip fence and the blade.
The riving knife is a metal device directly behind and above
the blade. It is used to help keep the cut wood from binding
together and causing possible kickback. It is very important
to use the riving knife for all through-sawing operations. The
anti-kickback pawls are toothed plates mounted on the riving
knife. Their teeth point away from the work in case the work
should be pulled back, toward the operator. Then the teeth
dig into the wood to help prevent or reduce the possibility of
kickback.
TO TURN YOUR SAW ON:
1. Lift switch cover.
2. Press switch button.
3. Lower switch cover.
TO TURN YOUR SAW OFF:
1. (A) Press or push outside of switch cover, or
(B) Lift switch cover and press switch button.
TO LOCK YOUR SAW SWITCH:
1. Raise switch cover.
2. Align metal loop through slot in switch cover while
lowering switch cover.
3. Place shackle of padlock (not provided) through the
metal loop and close padlock.
WARNING:
ALWAYS make sure your workpiece is not in contact with
the blade before operating the switch to start the tool.
Failure to heed this warning may cause the workpiece to
be kicked back toward the operator and result in serious
personal injury.
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of accidental starting, ALWAYS make

D. SPEED AND WIRING
The no-load speed of your table saw is approximately 4,800
rpm. The speed will not remain constant but will be less
under a load. The wiring in a shop is as important as the
motor's horsepower rating. A line intended for lights only
WILL NOT PROPERLY CARRY A POWER TOOL MOTOR.
Wire that is heavy enough for a short distance will be too light
for a greater distance. A line that can support one power tool
may not be able to support two or three tools.
WARNING:
To prevent possible electrical hazards, have a qualified
electrician check the line if you are not certain that it is
properly wired.

TYPES OF CUTS
There are six basic types of cuts: the straight cross cut, the
miter cut, the rip cut, the bevel cross cut, the bevel rip cut, and
the bevel miter cut (compound miter cut). All other cuts are
of these basic six. Operating procedures for making each
kind of cut are given later in this section.

CUT ACROSS THE GRAIN,
ON A STRAIGHT WORKPIECE,
WITH BLADE VERTICAL
Always make sure the blade guard and anti-kickback
pawls are in place and working properly when making
these cuts to avoid possible injury.
Cross cuts are straight, 90 degree cuts made across the
grain of the workpiece. The wood is fed into the cut at a 90
degree angle to the blade and the blade is vertical. See
Figures 18 and 36.
Figure 18: Cross Cut
CUT ACROSS THE GRAIN,
ON ANGLED WORKPIECE,

Figure 19: Miter Cut
Page 16
OPERATION
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle other than
90 degrees. See Figures 19 and 38. (The wood is angled to
the blade.) Miter cuts may tend to “creep” away from the
miter fence during cutting. This can be controlled by holding
the workpiece securely against the miter fence. The RYOBI
Miter Clamp Kit has been designed and tested for this
purpose. See the Accessories Section on page 38.
CUT WITH THE GRAIN,
ON A STRAIGHT WORKPIECE
WITH BLADE VERTICAL
Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood. See Figure 20.
To help control kickback while making a rip cut, keep the
anti-kickback pawls properly maintained and adjusted, make
sure one side of the wood rides firmly against the fence, and
ALWAYS use a push stick with small or narrow pieces of
wood.
NOTE: Push sticks should also be used to finish a cut when
ripping long narrow pieces of wood, to prevent your hands
from getting close to the blade. See Figure 39.
Bevel cross cuts are made with an angled blade, cutting
wood across the grain.
Bevel rip cuts are made with an angled blade, cutting wood

NOTE: The fence must always be on the left side of the blade
when making bevel cuts. See Figures 21 and 41.
Figure 20: Rip Cut
CUT WITH THE GRAIN, ON
A STRAIGHT WORKPIECE
WITH BLADE ANGLED
Compound or bevel miter cuts are made with an angled
blade on wood that is angled to the blade. Be thoroughly
familiar with making straight cross cuts, bevel cross cuts,
and miter cuts before trying a compound miter cut. See
Figure 22.
CUTTING TIPS
Dado and rabbet cuts are non-through cuts which can be
either rip cuts or cross cuts. Carefully read and understand
all sections of this operator's manual before attempting any
operation.

KICKBACK
See Figure 29.
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds, kicking
the workpiece back toward the front of the saw with great
force and speed. Kickback can cause serious injury. Precautions must be taken to avoid the risk of kickback.
AVOID:
• making a cut with incorrect blade depth
• sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
• twisting the wood while making a cut
• failing to properly position riving knife
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
making a cut with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly
set blade
failing to support work
forcing a cut
cutting warped or wet lumber
not following correct operating procedures
failing to use the anti-kickback pawls
using the wrong blade for the type of cut
TO AVOID KICKBACK
Use these guidelines to avoid kickback:
1. Always use the correct blade depth setting. The top
point of the blade teeth should clear the workpiece, 1/8 inch
to 1/4 inch.
2. Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning a
cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer. Never
saw into a loose knot or nail.
3. Make straight cuts. Always use the rip fence when rip
cutting. This helps prevent twisting the wood in the cut.
4. Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades. Never
make cuts with dull blades.
5. To avoid pinching the blade, support the work properly
before beginning a cut.
6. When making a cut, use steady, even pressure. Never
force cuts.
7. Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
8. Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands or
use push blocks, push sticks, and featherboards to keep
your body in a balanced position to be able to resist
kickback should it occur. Always use push blocks, push
sticks, or featherboards when making dado and other
non-through cuts to avoid the risk of serious injury.

over or across the blade. Failure to comply can result in
serious personal injury.
PUSH BLOCKS
9. Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
TO MAKE A PUSH STICK
A push stick is a device used to safely push a workpiece
through the blade instead of using your hands. Push sticks
in various sizes and shapes can be made from scrap wood.
The stick must always be narrower than the workpiece. If it
is too wide, it may jam on the rip fence or blade. When ripping
narrow stock, always use a push stick so your hand does not
come close to the saw blade.
Figure 30: Push Block And Push Stick Designs
Page 20
OPERATION
A simple push stick design is shown in figure 30. Remember
that the stick must always be narrower than the workpiece to
avoid risk of injury.
FEATHERB0ARD
A featherboard is a device used to help control the workpiece
by guiding it securely against the table or fence. Featherboards
are especially useful when ripping small workpieces and for
completing non-through cuts. Featherboards are made from
a solid piece of straight grain wood, free from splits or knots.
HOW TO MAKE A FEATHERBOARD
The featherboard is an excellent project for your BT3000.
Select a solid piece of lumber approximately 3/4 in. thick, 3-5/8 in.
wide and 18 inches long. Mark the center of the width on one
end of the stock. Miter one-half of the width to 30° and miter
the other half of the same end to 45°. See page 24 for
information on miter cuts. Mark the board from the point at 6
in., 8 in., 10 in. and 12 in. Drill a 3/8 in. hole at the 8 in., 10
in., and 12 in. marks as indicated in figure 31. Prepare the
saw for ripping as discussed on page 24. Set the rip fence to
allow approximately a 1/4 in. "finger" to be cut in the stock.
Feed the stock only to the mark previously made at 6 inches.
Turn the saw OFF and allow the blade to completely stop
rotating before removing the stock. Reset the rip fence and
cut spaced rips into the workpiece to allow approximately 1/
4 in. fingers and 1/8 in. spaces between the fingers. See
Figure 31.
HOW TO MOUNT A FEATHERBOARD
Remove the adjusting clamp knob, bolt and washer from the
Miter Fence Holder. Place the bolt through one of the holes
in the featherboard. Positioning the featherboard will depend
on the placement of the bolt and the position of the sliding
miter table on the rails. Place the washer on the bolt and
attach the adjusting clamp knob, loosely. Position the
featherboard with the hex head of the bolt in the miter table
slot but do not tighten. Completely lower the saw blade.
Position the rip fence to the desired adjustment for the cut to
be performed and lock. Place the workpiece against the
fence and over the saw blade area. Adjust the featherboard
to apply resistance to the workpiece just forward of the blade.
Securely tighten the adjusting clamp knob to secure the
featherboard in place. Attach a C-clamp to further secure the
featherboard to the edge of the Sliding Miter Table.
WARNING:
DO NOT locate the featherboard to the rear of the
workpiece. Kickback can result from the featherboard
pinching the workpiece and binding the blade in the saw
kerf if positioned improperly. Failure to heed this warning
can result in serious personal injury.

SLIDING MITER TABLE ASSEMBLY
Checks and Adjustments
The sliding miter table assembly has been pre-set at the factory to be parallel to the blade.
However, misalignment during shipping or requirements for very precise and accurate cuts may
require realignment. The square relationship between the blade and the miter fence as it travels
the entire distance from the front to the rear of the miter table base during a cut is very important
for making precise and accurate cuts.
To avoid unnecessary setups and adjustments, we suggest that you check these setups carefully
with a framing square and make practice cuts in scrap wood before making finish cuts in good
workpieces.
NOTE: Follow the general rule of measuring twice and cutting once.
Do not loosen any screws for the following adjustments until you have made checks and are sure
adjustments are needed. Once screws have been loosened, these settings must be reset.
Two basic checks should be made to determine if adjustments are necessary:
1. The miter base must be parallel to the blade as the table slides from the front to the rear of the
miter table assembly.
2. The miter fence must be square to the blade when set at exactly zero (0°) on the miter table
scale. This is necessary in order to be able to use the scale on the miter table. The miter table
has adjustment screws for squaring miter fence to blade and maintaining 0° scale settings when
miter base adjustments are required.
NOTE: These checks and adjustments are being explained in step by step procedures,
however, you should be aware that they depend upon each other.

Begin by unplugging your saw. Failure to unplug saw
could result in accidental starting causing possible serious
injury.
1. Set saw up as if you were preparing to make a cut.
Tighten rail clamps, miter locking clamps, adjusting
clamp, etc.
2. Slide miter table (A) to the front of miter base (B) as far
as it will go. Place a reference mark (C) near the end of
the miter table as shown in figure 50.
NOTE: Front of miter base is on infeed side of saw.
3. Place a reference mark on one of the blade teeth (D) and
rotate the blade (E) so that the reference mark on the
blade is at the front of the throat plate (F).
4. Place a framing square (G) against the blade and align
with reference mark on miter table. Measure the distance
between the blade and the edge of miter table.
NOTE: Place framing square between carbide teeth and
measure from blade. This step will insure framing
square is square against blade from the front to back of
blade.
5. Remove framing square and slide miter table to the rear
of miter base as far as it will go. See Figure 51.
6. Rotate the blade so the reference mark on the blade is
at the rear of the throat plate. Measuring from the same
mark on the blade at the rear will eliminate the effect of
blade wobble.
7. Place framing square against the blade and align with
the same reference mark on the miter table. Measure the
distance between the blade and the edge of the miter
table at the rear.
8. Compare whether the front and rear measurements are
the same. If they are the same, proceed with checking
the miter fence alignment. If not, this indicates the miter
base needs aligning. Miter base must then be adjusted
before checking miter fence alignment. See "TO ADJUST

3. Check whether the miter fence and blade are square
with each other. With the framing square against the
miter fence there should be no gap from the front to the
rear of the blade.
4. If a gap exists, the miter fence may be out of square.
5. Rotate the blade and recheck. If there is a consistent gap
between the front and rear of the blade, the miter table
needs aligning. Follow the adjustment procedures that

When using a power tool at a considerable distance from a power Cord Length
source, be sure to use an extension cord that has the capacity
25'
to handle the current the tool will draw. An undersized cord will
50'
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 recognized by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
