BASIC SAW OPERATION WORK FEED DEVQCES Before cutting any wood on your saw , study all of the " Basic Saw Operation " section . As you learn new table saw woodworking techniques , you'll see t hat many types of cuts need different support - ing devices , known as jigs or fixtures . Theycan help you make cuts more accurately . By helping to steady the workpiece and keep you away from the blade , they can help you safely use your saw for certain cuts . Many people custom build their own jigs and fixtures . Jigs and fixtures are often unique , designedfera particu - lar cut . You can use you rtable saw to easily make many jigs and fixtures . To get you started , we've included instructions for some simple ones . After you have made a few practice cuts , make up these jigs before starting any projects . Make the push stick first . THESE EDGES MUST BE PARALLEL _ 3 / 4 PLYWOOD PUSH STICK AND PUSH BLOCK Make the Push Stick using a piece of I x 2 . Make the Push Block using a piece of 3 / 8 in . and 3 / 4 in . \ / t plywood . The sinai ! piece of wood 3 / 8 x 3 / / 8 x 1 - 1 / 2 inches should be GLUED to the plywood . DO NOT USE NAILS . This is to prevent dulling the sawblade in the event you mistakenly cut into the Push Block .

RABBETING RABBET ! NG is known as cutting out a section of the corner of a piece of material , across an end or atong FIRST CUT an edge . To make a RABBET requires cuts which do not go ai ! RA I SECOND CUT the way through the material Therefore the blade guard must be removed . 1 . Remove blade guard . 2 . For rabbeting along an edge ( long way of work - piece ) as shown , add facing to rip fence approxi - mately as high as the workpiece is wide . Adjust RABBETING ALONG rip fence and blade to required dimensions ; then THE EDGE make first cut with board fiat on table as any rip ( type ) cut ; make second cut with workpiece on edge . Follow all precautions , safety instructions , and operational instructions as for ripping , or rip type operations , including feather boards and / push stick , etc . 3 . For rabbeting across an end , for workpiece 10 - 1 / 2 ' : and narrower make the rabbet cut with the board fiat on the table . Using the miter gauge fitted with a facing , follow the same procedures / and instructions for cross cutting making succes - sive cuts across the width of the workpiece to obtain the desired width of cut . DO NOT use the RABBETING rip fence for rabbeting across the end . ACROSS THE END guard immediately upon _ mpletlon of rabbeting I WARNING : For your own safety , Install blade I I operation .
