BASIC OPERATION OF THE TABLE SAW • To avoid pinching the blade , support the work properly before beginning a cut . A table saw can be used for straight - line cutting • When making a cut , use steady , even pressure . operations such as cross cutting , ripping , mitering , Never force cuts . beveling , and compound cutting . It can make dado or molding cuts with optional accessories . • Do not cut wet or warped lumber . The three - prong plug must be plugged into a match - • Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands ing outlet that is properly installed and grounded or with pushsticks .

TYPES OF CUTS See Figure 46 . There are six basic cuts : 1 ) the cross cut , 2 ) the rip cut , 3 ) the miter cut , 4 ) the bevel cross cut , Cross Cut 5 ) the bevel rip cut , and 6 ) the compound ( bevel ) miter cut . All other cuts are combinations of these basic six . Operating procedures for making each kind of cut are given later inthis section . _ I , WARNING : Always make sure the blade guarding and anti - kickback pawls are in place and work properly when making these cuts to avoid possible injury . _ . Rip Cut Cross cuts are straight 90 ° 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 with the grain of the wood . To avoid kickback while making a rip cut , make sure one Miter Cut side of the wood rides firmly against the rip fence . Miter cuts are made with the 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 o cutting . This can be controlled by holding the workpiece securely against the miter fence . Bevel Cross Cut _ . WARNING : Always use a pushstick with small pieces of wood , and also to finish the cut when ripping a long narrow piece of wood , to prevent your hands from getting close to the blade . Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade . Bevel cross cuts are across the wood grain , and bevel rip cuts are with the grain . The rip fence must always be on the right side of the blade for bevel rip cuts . Compound ( or bevel ) miter cuts are made with an Bevel Rip Cut angled blade on wood that is angled to the blade . Be thoroughly familiar with making cross cuts , rip cuts , bevel cuts , and miter cuts before trying a compound miter cut . _ 1 = WARNING : All blades and cutting accessoriest Compound ( bevel ) Miter Cut must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to preven Fig . 46 possible injury .

MAKING A CROSS CUT See Figures 47 and 48 . It is recommended that you make test cuts on scrap wood . Stand at the front of the saw and push the wood to the blade with the miter gage . , _ WARNING : Make sure the blade guard is lowered over blade and is working properly to INSERTSWITCHKEY prevent possible injury . • Set the blade to the right depth for the workpiece by turning the height handwheel . • Set the miter gage _ to 0 . Make sure miter gage knob is securely tightened . • Place a support the same height as the top of the saw table behind the saw for the cut work . • The miter gage may be used in either of the two grooves in the table . When using left groove , hold workpiece firmly against the miter gage base with your left hand and grip the knob with your right hand . When using the right groove , hold workpiece firmly against the miter gage base with your right hand and grip the knob with your left hand .
