When the motor cools off , it could unexpectedly restart the blade , throwing an object or cutting your hand if you are touching the blade . • Allow time for the motor to cool . You may have to let the motor cool for as long as it had run before the protector shut it down . • While the motor is cooling , refer to the section below to try to determine the reason for overload . Correct the problem before resuming operation , • Press hard on the red button on the end of the motor ( opposite end from the pulley ) . If the motor has cooled enough , you will hear a click . If you do not hear a click , let the motor cool longer . • When you hear the click , the motor has been reset and you can continue your project .

TYPES OF CUTS © See Figure 58 . There are six basic cuts : 1 ) the cross cut , 2 ) the rip CROSSCUT cut , 3 ) the miter cut , 4 ) the bevel cross cut , 5 ) the 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 ® cut are given later in this section . , _ 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 . ® Cross cuts are straight 90 ° cuts made across the grain MITERCUT of the workpiece . The wood is fed into the cut at a 90 " angle to the blade , and the blade is vertical . Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood . To avoLd 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 BEVELCROSSCUT 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 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 . COMPOUND ( BEVEL ) MITERCUT 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 Fig . 58 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 naccessoriest must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to preve possible injury .
