ALWAYS SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES basic saw operation RIPPING Ripping - A cutting or shaping operation along the length of the workpiece . Position the Fence to the desired WIDTH OF RiP and lock in place . Before starting to alp , be sure : 1 . Rip Fence is parallel to sawblade . 2 . Spreader is properly aligned with sawblade . 3 . Anti - Kickback Pawls are functioning properly . When ripping LONG BOARDS or LARGE PANELS , always use a work support . A simple one can be made by clamping a piece of plywood to a sawhorse . USING FEATHERBOARDS FOR THRU SAWING Featherboards are NOT employed for thru - sawing operations when using the Miter Gauge . Featherbaords are used to keep the work incontact with the Fence and table as shown , and to help stop kick - backs . Add 7 - 1 / 2 inches highflat facing board to the Fence , the full length of the Fence . Mount Featherboards to Fence and table as shown , so that leading edges of Featherboards will supporl work - piece .

BEVEL RiPPiNG When bevel ripping material 6 inches or narrower , use Fence on the right side of the blade ONLY . This will provide morespace betweenthe Fence andthe sawblade for use of a Push Stick . If the Fence is mounted to the left , the Sawblade Guard may interfere with proper use of a Push Stick . Keep your hands out of the blade path . Feed the workpiece by pushing forward only on the part of the workpiece that will pass between the blade and fence . Stop your thumbs at the front edge of the table . Finishthe cut with the appropriate pusher . Once the tralUng end is on the table : When " WI DTH OF RiP " is 2incheswide ormore , use the PushStick to finishpushing the work allthe way past the blade . When thru - sawing a rip 1 / 2 inch to 2 inches wide , the Push Stick CANNOT be used because the Guard will interfere . USE the Auxiliary Fence / Work Support and Push Block .
