TYPES OF CUTS See Figure 43 . There are six basic cuts : t ) the crosscut , 2 ) the rip cut , 3 ) the mitercut , 4 ) the bevel crosscut , Cross Cut 5 ) the bevel rip cut , and 6 ) the compound ( bevel ) miter cut . All other cuts are combinations of these basicsix . Operating proceduresfor making each kind of cut are given later in this sect'lon . " _ . WARNING : Always make sure the blade guard and anti - kickbackpawls are in place and working properlywhen making these cuts to avoid possible injury . Cross cuts are straight90 " cuts made across the grain of the workpiece . The wood is fed into the cut at a 90 degree angle to the blade , and the blade is vertical , Rip cuts are made withthe grain of the wood . To ® avoid kickbackwhile making a rip cut , make sure one side of the wood rides firmly against the rip fence . Miter Cut Miter cuts are made withthe wood at any angle to the blade other than 90 " . The blade is vertical . Miter cuts tend to " creep " away from the miter fence during cutting . This can be controlledby holdingthe o workpiece securely against the miterfence . _ , WARNING : Always use a pushstickwith small Bevel Cross Cut pieces of wood , and also to finish the cut when rippinga longnarrowpiece of wood , to prevent your hands from gettingcloseto the blade . Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade . Bevel crosscuts are across the wood grain , and bevel rip cuts are with the grain . The rip fence must always be on the rightside of the blade for bevel rip cuts . Compound ( or bevel ) miter cuts are made with an angled blade on wood that is angled to the blade . Be Bevel Rip Cut thoroughlyfamiliar with making cross cuts , dp cuts , bevel cuts , and miter cuts before tryinga compound mitercut . _ , WARNING : All blades and cuttingaccessodes must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to prevent Compound ( bevel ) Miter Cut possible injury .
