Wait for the motor to cool . Push in on the Fig . U reset button ( 3 ) and turn the switch to the ON position . To avoid injury , the ON / OFF switch must be in the OFF position and the plug removed from the power source while the cool down takes place , to prevent accidental starting when the reset button is pushed . Overheating may be caused by misaligned parts or a dull blade . Inspect your saw for proper setup before using it again . 3 USING THE TABLE EXTENSION FENCE ( FIG . W ) J " % . . . . A .

CUTTING OPERATIONS There are two basic types of cuts : ripping and AVOID KICKBACK by pushing forward that section of crosscutting . Ripping is cutting along the length and with the workpiece that will pass between the blade and the the grain of the workpiece . Crosscutting is cutting either fence . Use a push stick at all times . across the width or across the grain of the workpiece . Neither ripping nor crosscutting may be done safely Fig . X freehand . Ripping requires the use of the rip fence , and crosscutting requires the miter gauge . Never use a rip fence and miter gauge at the same time . Before using the saw each and every time , check the following : 1 . Blade is tight on the arbor . 2 . Bevel angle lock knob is tight . 3 . If ripping , fence lock handle is tight and fence is parallel to the blade . 4 . Blade guard is in place and working properly . 5 . Safety glasses are being worn . The failure to adhere to these common safety rules , and those printed in the front of this manual , can greatly increase the likelihood of injury . RIPPING ( FIG . X , Y ) 6 . Keep your thumbs off the blade top . When both of your thumbs touch the front edge of the table ( 2 ) , finish the cut with a push stick . You can make a push stick using the pattern on page 30 . To prevent serious injury : 7 . The push stick ( 3 ) should always be used for any • Never use the miter gauge when ripping . ripping operation . • Never use more than one rip fence during a single cut . 8 . Continue pushing the workpiece with the push stick ( 3 ) • Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your table saw to cause careless mistakes . Remember that even until it passes the blade guard and clears the rear of the table . a careless fraction of a second is enough to cause a severe injury . 9 . DANGER - Never attempt to pull the workpiece backwards during a cutting operation . This will cause • Keep both hands away from the blade and path of the blade . kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . When the blade completely stops raise the anti - • The workpiece must have a straight edge against the fence and must not be warped , twisted , or bowed . kickback pawls on each side of the splitter and slide the workpiece out . • DANGER - Never attempt to pull the workpiece backwards during a cutting operation . This will cause kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . Fig . Y 1 . Remove the miter gauge . Secure the rip fence to the table or if using the extension fence , set the position and remove all other rip fences from the table . . 2 . Raise the blade so it is about 1 / 8 " higher than the top of the workpiece . 3 . Place the workpiece flat on the table and against the fence . Keep the workpiece about 1 " away from the blade . 4 . Turn the saw ON and wait for the blade to come up to speed . 5 . Slowly feed the workpiece into the blade by pushing forward only on the workpiece section ( 1 ) that will pass between the blade and the fence . ( Fig . X ) 17

BEVEL RIPPING This cut is the same as ripped except the blade bevel Always position the larger surface of the workpiece on the angle is set to an angle other than " 0 " . table when crosscutting and / or bevel crosscutting to avoid unstability . Fig . Z Cut only with the workpiece and the fence on the right side of the blade . 3 2 Never attempt to pull the workpiece backwards during a cutting operation . This will cause kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . RIPPING SMALL PIECES Avoid injury from the blade contact . Never make through - saw cuts narrower than 3 / 4 " wide . 1 . It is unsafe to rip small pieces . Instead , rip a larger BEVEL CROSSCUTTING ( FIG . AA ) 0 ° - 45 ° BLADE BEVEL & 90 ° MITER ANGLE piece to obtain the size of the desired piece . 2 . When a small width is to be ripped , your hand cannot This cutting operation is the same as crosscutting be safely put between the blade and the rip fence , except the blade is at bevel angle other than 0 ° . therefore , use one or more push sticks to pass the 1 .

CROSSCUTTING 90 ° MITER ANGLE ( FIG . Z ) Fig . AA To prevent serious injury : • Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your table saw to cause careless mistakes . Remember that even a careless fraction of a second is enough to cause a severe injury . • Keep both hands away from the blade and the path of the blade . • DANGER - Never attempt to pull the workpiece backwards during a cutting operation . This will cause kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . 1 . Remove the rip fence lower all table extension fences flush to the table and place the miter gauge a miter 2 gauge groove on the table . 2 . Adjust the blade height so it is 1 / 8 " higher than the top of the workpiece . COMPOUND MITER CROSSCUTTING ( FIG . BB ) 0 ° - 45 ° BLADE BEVEL & 00 - 45 ° MITER ANGLE 3 . Hold the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge with the blade path in line with the desired cut location . This sawing operation is combining a miter angle with a Move the workpiece to one inch distance from the bevel angle . blade . WARNING - Always work to the left side of the blade 4 . Start the saw and wait for the blade ( 1 ) to come up to full during this type of cut . The miter gauge ( 3 ) must be in speed . Never stand directly inline of the saw blade path , the left side miter gauge groove . It cannot be used in the always stand to the side of the blade that you are cutting right side groove unless the miter angle is very sharp , as on . it will interfere with the blade guard . 5 .

The miter gauge ( 3 ) must be in only . Reinstall and realign blade guard for all through the left side miter gauge groove . It cannot be used in the sawing operations . Install a dado not exceeding 6 " diameter and ½ " width and the dado table insert . right side groove unless the miter angle is very sharp , as it will interfere with the blade guard . 2 . Instruction for operating the dado is packed with the separately purchased dado set . 1 . Hold the workpiece ( 2 ) firmly against the miter 3 . The arbor ( 1 ) on this saw restricts the maximum width of the cut to 1 / 2 " . gauge ( 3 ) . 2 . Feed the workpiece slowly into the blade ( 1 ) to 4 . It is not necessary to install the outside flange ( 2 ) prevent the workpiece from moving . before threading on the arbor nut ( 3 ) for maximum ½ " dado cuts . Make sure that the arbor nut ( 3 ) is tight , Fig . CC and that at least one thread of the arbor sticks out past the nut . 5 . Use only the 6 " diameter dado set and keep the width 2 1 1 / 2 " or less . It will be necessary to remove the blade guard and splitter when using a dado blade only . Always use caution when operating a dado blade . 6 . Use only the correct number of round outside blades and inside chippers as shown in the dado set's instruction manual . Blades / chippers must not exceed 1 / 2 " total in width . 7 . Check saw to ensure that the dado will not strike the housing , insert , or motor when in operation . USING WOOD FACING ON THE RIP FENCE For your own safety , always replace the blade , blade ( FIG . DD ) When performing some special cutting operations , guard assembly , and blade insert when you are finished with the dado operation . You must also realign the blade You can add a wood facing ( 1 ) to either side of the rip fence ( 2 ) . guard assembly . NOTE : Before using wood facing on the rip fence , make sure the auxiliary fences are lowered flush to the Fig . EE table top . j2 1 . Use a smooth straight 3 / 4 " thick wood board ( 1 ) that is as long as the rip fence . 2 . Attach the wood facing to the fence with wood f screws ( 3 ) through the hole in the fence . A wood I fence should be used when ripping material such as thin paneling to prevent the material from catching between the bottom of the fence and the table . 19
