A table saw can be used for straight - line cutting operations such as cross cutting , ripping , mitering , • When making a cut , use steady , even pressure . Never force cuts . beveling , compound cutting , and resawing . 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 49 . There are six basic cuts : 1 ) the cross cut , 2 ) the rip cut , 3 ) the miter cut , 4 ) the bevel cross cut , 5 ) the CROSSCUT bevel rip cut , and 6 ) the compound ( bevel ) miter cut . All other cuts are combinations of these basic opera - tions . Operating procedures for making each kind of Q cut are given later in this section . _ 1 = WARNING : Always make sure the blade guarding RIPCUT and anti - kickback pawls are in place and work properly when making these cuts to avoid possible injury . Q Cross cuts are straight 90 " cuts made across the grain of the workpiece . The wood is fed into the cut at a 90 " MITERCUT 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 side of the wood rides firmly against the rip fence . ® The rip fence features a micro - adjust knob , which allows for precise adjustments of the rip fence and fine tolerances in the woodwork . 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 cutting . This can be controlled by holding the workpiece securely against the miter fence . BEVELRIPCUT _ . WARNING : Always use a push stick with small pteces 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 . COMPOUND ( BEVEL ) MITERCUT Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade . Bevel cross cuts are across the wood grain , and bevel rip Fig . 49 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 angled blade on wood that is angled to the blade . Be thoroughly familiar with making straight cross cuts , rip cuts , bevel cuts , and miter cuts before trying a com - pound miter cut . , _ WARNING : All blades and cutting accessoriest must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to preven possible injury . 35 rRRFTSMRIr TABLESAW 315.228410
