ARM LATCH KNOB ( 3 ) Precision Indexing - experienced operators of precision equipment , such as this Craftsman Radial Saw , normally acquire the habit of indexing the machine in one direction only , whenever'a new setting is made in preparation for a different operation . . For example : when moving the radial arm to a new position , it is advisable to move it slightly past the desired index position , then return it slowly and carefully to latch and loci < it , Swivel indexing and bevel indexing can be accomplished in a similar manner . This indexing technique tends to / neutralize any stresses imposed upon saw components and contributes to the high degree \ of accuracy the saw is capable of producing when operated expertly 15

basic saw operations Basic sew operations are summarized into six categories , explained and / frustrated in the following paragraphs , , A manual entitled " The Radial Saw " is available at your nearest Sears Retail Store or Catalog Order House . This manual contains considerable data and project ideas applicable to the radial saw . NOTE : Refer to paragraphs under " OPERATION " for illustrations and descriptions of controls . REQUIREMENTS FOR CROSSCUT Board ( stationary ' } position against rip fence ( guide } and laying fiat on tabte top . ( OPERATIONS I THROUGH 4 ) 1 Arbor nut must be tight and saw blade guard installed in horizontal position . 2 . , Arm latch handle ( knob ) must be tight 3 . Adjust the anti - kickback assembly so the pawls _ ust clear the workplace , or fence , 4 . Work must be held firmly against table and fence . For workpieces thicker than the fence is high , it is recommended that a higher fence be cut ( at least PROPER workpiece tMckness } and inserted for that operation being performed . Always place the fence in the most forward position ( farthest from the column support ) compatible with the workpiece being processed and the operation being performed . With the carriage fully retracted , the blade should not contact the workpiece when pfaced against the fence , within the stated capacities of your saw . DIRECTION 5 . Blade should be sharp and correctly set . OF TRAVEL _ 6 . Hands must be kept well away from saw biade , 7 , Yoke clamp handle must be in locked position 8 . , Bevel index knob must be tight ( SEE ITEM " 10 " AT LEFT } 9 Blade should cut into the table or plywood cover not more than 1 / 32 inch , I0 . Pull the saw forward just far enough to sever the lumber . It is dangerous if the blade has been pulled too far out beyond the piece being cut When it is returned it can pick up the right hand piece and throw it over the fence IMPROPER t1 _ For operations No _ 3 and No , 4 , observe additional instructions under paragraph " Operating Controls " - " Blade Angle " OPERATION No . 1 - CROSSCUT Crosscutting is the process of sawing the workplace by pulting the saw blade through it and using the fence as a support for the edge of the workpiece . Never crosscut free - hand . , DIRECTION WARNING : BEFORE CROSSCUTTING , MAKE SURE THE ARM LATCH , BEVEL LOCK AND YOKE CLAMP ARE ALL SECURED . NEVER USE A LENGTH STOP OR ( SEE ITEM " t0 " AT LEFT ) A FIXED GUIDE ON THE FREE END OR EDGE OF A WORKPIECE .

basic opera ions OPERATION No . 2 - MITER CROSSCUT Miter crosscutting is the process of sawing a board at any angle other than a 90 ° ( square ) cut ° The 45o miter angle is a popular one , since two boards cut to 45 ° can be assembled to form a 90 ° corner for producing a square or rectangular frame . The radial arm is set to the desired angle of cut ; yoke and bevel settings indexed at 0 ° ( and locked ) as in square crosscutting . The board being cut is held firmly against the fence ( guide ) and the carriage pulled forward along the radial arm to perform the desired cut _ As in " Operation No , ! " ' , the carriage should be returned to full rear position and the saw blade allowed to come to a complete stop before removing the boards from saw table ° OPERATION No . 3 - BEVEL CROSSCUT Bevel crosscutting is the process of sawing at 90 ° ( square ) across the board with the saw blade set at an angle other than 90 ° to the saw table , The radial arm and yoke are indexed at 0 ° and locked , but the bevel is set to the desired angle of cut , . The board is held firmly against the fence and the carriage pulled forward along the radial arm to produce the cut . The carriage should be returned to full rearward position and the saw blade allowed to come to a complete stop before removing the boards from saw table . OPERATION No . 4 - COMPOUND CROSSCUT Compound crosscutting is the combination of miter and bevel crosscuts . . The radial arm and bevel are set to produce the desired cut ; the yoke is indexed at 0 ° and iocked _ The board is held firmly against the fence and the carriage pulled forward along the radial arm to produce the cut . Again , the carriage should be returned to full rearward position and the saw blade allowed to come to a complete stop before removing boards from saw table . 18

" 5 _ Blade should be sharp and correctly set _ 6 , When ripping narrow stock , tess than 3 inches but more than I / 2 inches between the guard and the fence ( guide ) , use a push stick , . 7 , When ripping stock I / 2 inch or less between the btade and fence ( guide ) use a pusher board , Pusher board should not be less than 3 inches wide and PUSHER BOARD 16 inches long , Nail or glue a 3 / 4 x 3 / 4 x 4 inch block to one edge of push board to be used as a grip , The pusher board should be fed into the blade behind the stock being ripped not more than 8 inches so as not to strike anti - kickback pawls fingers and then pulled back with use of the grip ° 8 . Hands must be kept well away from saw bladed g , , Saw blade must be parallel to fence , to minimize possibility of kickbacks . OPERATION No . 5 - OUT - RIPPING WARNING : NEVER RIP FREE - HAND . BEFORE AND IN - RIPPING RIPPING , MAKE SURE THE GUARD , SPREADER AND ANTI - KICKBACK PAWLS ARE SET UP PROPERLY , ALSO , MAKE SURE THE SAW BLADE Ripping is the process of sawing the workpiece by IS PARALLEL WITH THE FENCE .

basic saw operations 2o Since the work is pushed along the fence , it must have a reasonably straight edge in order to make sliding contact with the fence , Also , the work must make solid contact with the table , so that it will not wobble . Provide a straight edge , even if this means temporary nailing of an auxiliary straight - edged board to the work . If the workpiece is warped , turn the hollow side down . , 3 , , Always use the saw guard and make sure the spreader is correctly aligned with the saw kerr , Wood cut with the \ grain tends to spring the kerf closed and bind the blade and a kickback could occur ° 4 , Stand a Httle to one side of center to avoid being sprayed with sawdust and to be clear of work in case of kickback , 5 ° When ripping short or narrow work , always use a push stick applied to the section of the workpiece between the Made and fence , , , push the work past the blade so it is clear of the blade . This procedure will minimize the possibility of kickbacks In - Ripping . The radial arm and bevel are indexed at 0 ° and Out - Ripping The radial arm and bevel are indexed at 0 ° locked , but the yoke is turned 90 _ degrees in a clockwise and locked , but the yoke is turned 90 - degrees in a direction ( viewed from above ) from the crosscut position , counterclockwise direction ( viewed from above ) , from the Thus , when standing in front of the saw , the blade would crosscut position When standing in front of the saw , blade be rotating counterclockwise , After positioning the guard would be rotating clockwise After positioning the guard and anti - kickback mechanism the workpiece is fed from the and anti - kickback mechanism the workpiece is fed from the right - hand side of the saw ° The " In - Rip " scale is on the left - hand side of the saw The " Out - Rip " scale is on the left right - hand side of radial arm , , hand side of radial arm . OPERATION No . 6 - BEVEL RIPPING Bevel ripping is either in - ripping or out - ripping as described above , except the saw blade is tilted out of perpendicular to the saw table surface ° The radial arm is indexed at 0 ° and locked , the beve _ is set to the desired bevel angle and the yoke is positioned for in - ripping ( saw blade at rear ) or out - ripping { saw blade at front } , as required , , All requirements and observations applicable to normal ripping operations also apply to bevel ripping , DADOING MOLDING / SANDING Instructions for operating the Dado Head are contained in booklet furnished with the Dado Head .
