CROSSCUTTING CROSSCUTTING is known as cutting wood across the grain , at 90 ° , or square with both the edge and the flat side of the wood . This is done with miter gauge set at " ' 0 " . The graduations on the miter gauge provide accuracy for average woodworking . In some cases where extreme accuracy is required , when making angle cuts , for example , make a trial cut and then recheck it with an accurate square , or protractor . If necessary , the miter gauge head can be swiveled slightly to compensate for any inacurracy . NOTE : The space between the miter gauge bar and the groove in the table is held to a minimum during manufacturing . For maximum accuracy when using the miter gauge , always " favor " one side of the groove in the table . In other words , don't move the miter gauge from side to side while cutting , but keep one side of the bar riding against one side of the The miter gauge may be used in either of the grooves in the groove . table . Make sure it is locked . NOTE : Glue a piece of sandpaper to the face of the miter When using the miter gauge in the LEFT hand groove , hold gauge head . This wil help prevent the workpiece from the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge head with " creeping " while it is being cu _ . your left hand , and grip the lock handle with your right . The Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with When using the RIGHT Hand groove , hold the workpiece 113.298240 should be used on the miter gauge for greater with your right hand and the Iockhandle with your left accuracy . hand . \ \ When cutting tong workpieces , invert AUXILIARY FENCE / WORK SUPPORT and position it on top of the guide bars to support the workpiece as near to the end as AUXILIARY FENCE / possible . If this does not adequately support the workpiece , WORK SUPPORT you can make a simple support by clamping a piece of plywood to a sawhorse . Use the Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with 113.298240 on the miter gauge for greater accuracy . REPETITIVE CUTTING REPETITIVE CUTTING is known as cutting a quantity of pieces the same length without having to mark each piece . 1 . Use the Stop Rods ( optional accessory ) only for cutting duplicate pieces 6 in . long and longer . 2 . DO NOT FEED workpiece with RIGHT Hand , merely guide it , making sure that it does not bind or pinch the sawblade . When making repetitive cuts from a long workplece , make sure t is adequately supported . Use the Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with 113.298240 on the miter gauge for greater accuracy . AUXILIARY FENCE / WORK SUPPORT 24

1 . NEVER USE " THE RIP FENCE AS A LENGTH S ' , v , BECAUSE THE CUTOFF PIECE COULD BIND BETWEEN THE FENCE AND THE BLADE CAUSING A KICKBACK . 2 • When making repetitive cuts shorter than 6 in . , clamp a block of wood 2 in . long to the table to act as a length stop . Do not clamp directly to the bottom edge of the table because the " swivel " of the clamp will not grip properly . Place a _ mall block of wood between the bottom edge of the table and the " C " clamp . CAUTION : When clamping the block , make sure that the end of the block is well in front of the sawblade . Be sure it is clamped securely . 3 . Slide the workpiece along the miter gauge until it touches the block . . . hold it securely or clamp it with the Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with 113,298240 . 4 . Make the cut . . . pull the workpiece back . . , push the CUT OFF PIECE cut off piece off the table with a long push stick . . . DO NOT ATTEIVlPT TO PICK IT UP AS THIS COULD ENDANGER ' . YOUR HANDS . MITER CUTTING MITER CUTTING is known as cutting wood at an angle other than 90 ° with the edge of the wood . Follow the same procedure as you would for crosscutting . Adjust the miter gauge to the desired angle , and lock it • The miter gauge may be used in either of the grooves in the table . When using the miter gauge in the LEFT Hand groove , hold the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge head with your left hand , and grip the lock knob with your right . When using the RIGHT hand groove , hold the workpiece with your right hand and the knob with your left hand . Use the Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with Model 113.298240 on the miter gauge for greater accuracy . BEVEL CROSSCUTTING BEVEL CROSSCUTTING is the same as crosscutting except that the wood is also cut at an angle . • • other than 90 ° with the flat side of the wood . Adjust the blade to the desired angle . Use the Miter Gauge in the groove to the RIGHT of the blade . It cannot he used in the groove to the LEFT because the blade guard will interfere . Hold the workpiece with your right hand and the Iockhandle with your left hand . Use the AUXILIARY FENCE / WORK SUPPORT for additional support of the workpiece . Lay it across the guide bars to support the workpiece as near to the end as possible • Use the Hold - Down Clamp ( Optional Accessory ) included with Model 113.298240 on the miter gauge for greater accuracy . COMPOUND MITI : : R CUTTING COMPOUND MITER CUTTING is a combination of miter cutting and bevel crosscutting . The cut is made at an angle other than 90 ° to both the edge and the flat side of the wood . Adjust the mi _ er gauge and the blade to the desired angle • . . Make sure miter gauge is locked . 25

USING THE HOLD - DOWN When cutting wide pieces of material , move the clamp assembly forward as far as it will go . . . grip the lock handle and tighten by turning clockwise until lock handle is secured . Tighten both wing screws . When cutting narrow pieces of material , adjust the clamp assembly with the clamp over the center of the workpiece . Grip the lock handle and tighten by turning clockwise until lock handle is secured . Tighten both wing screws , The clamp screw contains a " rapid approach " feature . Disengage clamp lock latch , press IN the r _ pid approach button which is located on the left side of the clamp assembly and PUSH DOWN or PULL UP on the clamp screw .

FOR YOUR PROTECTION , NEVER USE MITER GAUGE WITH CLAMP LOCK LATCH DISENGAGED . \ SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES . . . you can make a s _ mple support bv clamping a p _ ece o ] ' plywood to a sawhorse , ADD FACING to front face of miter gauge head for support as needed . It must not extend past the right end - including the 45 ° corner of miter gauge head when miter gauge is used in the left table groove , nor east the left end when mi _ er gauge is usea in the right table groove , Otherwise , the FACING will interfere with the saw blade guard and prevent proper and safe operation . CAUTION : For bevel crosscutting or compound miter cutting , use the miter gauge in the groove to the RIGHT of the blade . . NEVER TO THE LEFT . This will permit the guard and the miter gauge to function properly . Always release clamping knob - - unclamp workpiece and \ disengage clamp lock latch before pressing in rapid \ approach button . \ \ End of work _ ) iece must extend at least two inches to either \ side of shoe of clamo screw . \ Wiae ( 12 " ' or wider _ and long ( 2 feet or longer ) pieces of plywood , chip board or wall paneling should be cut using the rip fence rather than the miter gauge . NOTE : It may be necessary to add a facing to the Fence to prevent very thin materials like wall paneling or formica from slipping under the fence . Support wide workpieces to the rear of the table - - you e _ n make _ _ = rn _ le cup5ort by clamping a piece of plywood to a sawhorse . BE POSITIVE edge of workpiece next to face of miter gauge head is straight and tight against miter gauge head so that workpiece does not rock or rotate , When repositioning Head to another miter angle , it is workpiece thru the sawblade . For narrow work , place other necessary to loosen both Wing Screws slightly before hand so thumb is hooked behind miter gauge head and lessening the Lock Handle . fingers hooked over leading edge for work . For wider work CAUTION : After setting angle , secure Lock Handle and where other hand cannot span board as aoove , ptace hand both Wing Screws , in that order , before clamping the on top of work and hook fingers over leading edge of work workpiece and engaging the clamp lock latch . to hold it tight against the face of the miter gauge during the cutting operation . ALWAYS use both hands when operating with miter gauge . Place one hand on the lock handle - - use this hand to feed Never use mter gauge with clamp lock latch disengaged . 26
