CUTTING OPERATIONS There are two basic types of cuts : ripping and crosscutting . Ripping is cutting along the length and with AVOID KICKBACK by pushing forward that section of the grain of the workpiece . Crosscutting is cutting either the workpiece that will pass between the blade and the across the width or across the grain of the workpiece . fence . Use a push stick at all times . Neither ripping nor crosscutting may be done safely freehand . Ripping requires the use of the rip fence , and Fig . X 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 . 1 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 . 6 . Keep your thumbs off the blade top . When both of your thumbs touch the front edge of the table ( 2 ) , finish the RIPPING cut with a push stick . You can make a push stick using the pattern on page 30 . 7 . The push stick ( 3 ) should always be used for any To prevent serious injury : ripping operation . • Never use the miter gauge when ripping . 8 . Continue pushing the workpiece with the push stick ( 3 ) • Never use more than one rip fence during a single cut . until it passes the blade guard and clears the rear of • Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your tableeven the table . saw to cause careless mistakes .

This will cause severe injury . kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . • Keep both hands away from the blade and path of the When the blade completely stops raise the anti - blade . kickback pawls on each side of the splitter and slide the • The workpiece must have a straight edge against the workpiece out . fence and must not be warped , twisted , or bowed . • DANGER - Never attempt to pull the workpiece Fig . Y backwards during a cutting operation . This will cause kickback and serious injury to the user can occur . 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 ) ] 7

BEVEL RIPPING This cut is the same as ripped except the blade bevel angle is set to an angle other than " 0 " . Always position the larger surface of the workpiece on the table when crosscutting and / or bevel crosscutting to avoid unstability . Cut only with the workpiece and the fence on the right Fig . Z 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 . BEVEL CROSSCUTTING ( FIG . AA ) 1 . It is unsafe to rip small pieces . Instead , rip a larger 0 ° - 45 ° BLADE BEVEL & 90 ° MITER ANGLE piece to obtain the size of the desired piece . This cutting operation is the same as crosscutting 2 . When a small width is to be ripped , your hand cannot except the blade is at bevel angle other than 0 ° . be safely put between the blade and the rip fence , therefore , use one or more push sticks to pass the 1 . Adjust the blade ( 1 ) to the desired angle , and tighten the blade bevel lock knob . workpiece completely through and past the blade . 2 . Always work to the left side of the blade . The miter CROSSCUTTING 90 ° MITER ANGLE ( FIG . Z ) gauge ( 3 ) must be in the left side groove ( 2 ) . It cannot be used in the right side groove unless the miter angle is very sharp , as it will interfere with the blade guard . To prevent serious injury : • Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your table Fig . AP 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 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 ) 3 .

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 " right side groove unless the miter angle is very sharp , as diameter and ½ " width and the dado table insert . 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 gauge ( 3 ) . of the cut to 1 / 2 " . 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 . 2 5 . Use only the 6 " diameter dado set and keep the width 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 . For your own safety , always replace the blade , blade USING WOOD FACING ON THE RIP FENCE guard assembly , and blade insert when you are finished ( FIG . DO ) with the dado operation . You must also realign the blade When performing some special cutting operations , guard assembly . You can add a wood facing ( 1 ) to either side of the rip fence ( 2 ) . Fig . EE NOTE : Before using wood facing on the rip fence , make sure the auxiliary fences are lowered flush to the J table top . J 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 screws ( 3 ) through the hole in the fence . A wood \ fence should be used when ripping material such \ I as thin paneling to prevent the material from catching between the bottom of the fence and the table .
