Make sure the spindle lock budon is not engaged before reconnecting saw to power source . Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the factory for making very accurate cuts . However , some of the components might have been jarred out of alignment during shipping . Also , over a period of time , readjustment will probably become necessary due to wear . After unpacking your saw , check the following adjustments before you begin using saw . Make any readjustments that are necessary and periodically check the parts alignment to make sure that your saw Fig . 12 is cutting accurately . , _ WARNING : Your saw should never beare connected to power supply when you assembling parts , making adjustments , installing or removing blades , or when not in use . Disconnecting your saw will prevent accidental starting that could cause serious injury . 15

CUTTING CROWN MOLDING LAYING MOLDING FLAT ON THE MITER TABLE Your compound miter saw does an excellent job of See Figure32 . cutting crown molding .

Most crown molding has a top rear angle ( the section that fits fiat against the ceiling ) of 52 ° and Keep in mind that the angles for crown moldings are e bottom rear angle ( the section that fits fiat against very precise and difficult to set . Since it is very easy the wall ) of 38 ° . for these angles to shift , all settings should first be tested on scrap molding . Also most walls do not have angles of exactly 90 ° , therefore , you will need to fine tune your settings . When cutting crown molding by this method the bevel angle should be set at 33.85 ° . The miter angle should be set at 31.62 ° either right or left , depending on the desired cut for the application . See the chart below for correct angle settings and correct positioning of crown molding on miter table . The settings in the chart below can be used for cutting All Standard ( U .
