1. KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the owner’s manual carefully. Learn the tool’s applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards peculiar to it. 2. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in working order. 3. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning it on. 4. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents. 5. DON’T USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRON MENT. Don’t use power tools in damp or wet locations, or expose them to rain. Keep work area well lighted. Don’t use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases. 6. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept safe distance from work area. 7. MAKE WORKSHOP KID PROOF with pad locks, master switches, or by removing starter keys. 8. DON’T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job bet ter and safer at the rate for which it was designed. 9. USE RIGHT TOOL. Don’t force tool or attachment to do a job for which it was not designed. 10. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry which may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair. 11. ALWAYS USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses only have impact resistant lenses, they are NOT safety glasses. 12. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work when practical. It’s safer than using your hand and it frees both hands to operate tool. 13. DON’T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. 14. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for best and safest perfor mance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. 15. DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing; when changing accessories such as blades, bits, cutters, and the like. 16. REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Make sure switch is in off position before plugging in. 17. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult the owner’s manual for recom mended accessories. The use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury to persons. 18. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally contacted.
19. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function - check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mount ing, and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced. 20. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or cutter only. 21. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNAT TENDED. TURN POWER OFF. Don’t leave tool until it comes to a complete stop. 22. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing use only identical replacement parts. 23. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified elec trician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool to a power source (receptacle, outlet, etc.) be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the nameplate of the tool. A power source with voltage greater than that specified for the tool can result in SERIOUS INJURY to the user - as well as damage to the tool. If in doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL. Using a power source with voltage less than the nameplate rating is harmful to the motor. USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage num ber, the heavier the cord. Table 1: Minimum gage for cord Ampere Rating Volts Total length of cord in feet 120 V 25 ft. 50 ft. 100 ft. 150 ft.

If you use this tool unsafely or incorrectly, you can suffer serious personal injury.
1. Wear eye protection. 2. Keep hands out of path of saw blade. Avoid contact with any coasting blade. It can still cause severe injury. 3. Do not operate saw without guards in place. Check blade guard for proper clos ing before each use. Do not operate saw if blade guard does not move freely and close instantly. Never clamp or tie the blade guard into the open position. 4. Do not perform any operation freehand. The workpiece must be secured firmly against the turn base and guide fence with a vise during all operations. Never use your hand to secure the workpiece. 5. Never reach around saw blade. 6. Turn off tool and wait for saw blade to stop before moving workpiece or chang ing settings. 7. Unplug tool before changing blade or ser vicing. 8. To reduce the risk of injury, return car riage to the full rear position after each crosscut operation. 9. Always secure all moving portions before carrying the tool. 10. Stopper pin which locks the cutter head down is for carrying and storage pur poses only and not for any cutting opera tions. 11. Do not use the tool in the presence of flammable liquids or gases. 12. Check the blade carefully for cracks or damage before operation. Replace cracked or damaged blade immediately. Gum and wood pitch hardened on blades slows saw and increases potential for kickback. Keep blade clean by first remov ing it from tool, then cleaning it with gum and pitch remover, hot water or kerosene. Never use gasoline to clean blade. 13. While making a slide cut, KICKBACK can occur. KICKBACK occurs when the blade binds in the workpiece during a cutting operation and the saw blade is driven back rapidly towards the operator. Loss of control and serious personal injury can result. If blade begins to bind during a cut ting operation, do not continue to cut and release switch immediately. 14. Use only flanges specified for this tool. 15. Be careful not to damage the arbor, flanges (especially the installing surface) or bolt. Damage to these parts could result in blade breakage. 16. Make sure that the turn base is properly secured so it will not move during opera tion. Use the holes in the base to fasten the saw to a stable work platform or bench. NEVER use tool where operator positioning would be awkward. 17. For your safety, remove the chips, small pieces, etc. from the table top before oper ation. 18. Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and remove all nails from the workpiece before operation.
19. Make sure the shaft lock is released before the switch is turned on. 20. Be sure that the blade does not contact the turn base in the lowest position. 21. Hold the handle firmly. Be aware that the saw moves up or down slightly during start-up and stopping. 22. Make sure the blade is not contacting the workpiece before the switch is turned on. 23. Before using the tool on an actual work piece, let it run for a while. Watch for vibration or wobbling that could indicate poor installation or a poorly balanced blade. 24. Wait until the blade attains full speed before cutting. 25. Stop operation immediately if you notice anything abnormal. 26. Do not attempt to lock the trigger in the on position. 27. Be alert at all times, especially during repetitive, monotonous operations. Do not be lulled into a false sense of security. Blades are extremely unforgiving. 28. Always use accessories recommended in this manual. Use of improper accessories such as abrasive wheels may cause an injury. 29. NEVER hold workpiece on right side of blade with left hand or vice versa. This is called cross-armed cutting and exposes user to risk of SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY as shown in the figure. ALWAYS use vise to secure workpiece. 30. Do not abuse cord. Never yank cord to disconnect it from the receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, water and sharp objects. 31. NEVER stack workpieces on the table top to speed cutting operations. Cut only one piece at a time.

By turning the vise knob counterclockwise, the screw is released and the vise shaft can be moved rapidly in and out. By turning the vise knob clockwise, the screw remains secured. To grip the workpiece, turn the vise knob gently clockwise until the projection reaches its topmost position, then fasten securely. If the vise knob is forced in or pulled out while being turned clockwise, the projection may stop at an angle. In this case, turn the vise knob back counterclockwise until the screw is released, before turning again gently clock wise. The maximum width of the workpiece which can be secured by the horizontal vise is 120 mm (4-3/4”). CAUTION: • Grip the workpiece only when the projection is at the topmost position. Failure to do so may result in insufficient securing of the workpiece. This could cause the workpiece to be thrown, cause damage to the blade or cause the loss of control, which can result in PERSONAL INJURY.
1 2 1. Holder 2. Holder assembly 2 1 1. Holder assembly 2. Rod 12 002247 002246 Holders and holder assembly (optional accessories) The holders and the holder assembly can be installed on either side as a convenient means of supporting workpieces horizontally. Install them as shown in the figure. Then tighten the screws firmly to secure the holders and the holder assembly. When cutting long workpieces, use the holder-rod assembly (optional accessory). It consists of two holder assemblies and two rods 12. CAUTION: • Always support long workpieces level with the top surface of the turn base for accurate cuts and to prevent dangerous loss of control of the tool.
OPERATION CAUTION: • Before use, be sure to release the handle from the lowered position by pulling the stopper pin. • Make sure the blade is not contacting the workpiece, etc. before the switch is turned on. • Do not apply excessive pressure on the handle when cutting. Too much force may result in overload of the motor and/or decreased cutting efficiency. Push down handle with only as much force as is necessary for smooth cutting and without significant decrease in blade speed. • Gently press down the handle to perform the cut. If the handle is pressed down with force or if lateral force is applied, the blade will vibrate and leave a mark (saw mark) in the workpiece and the precision of the cut will be impaired. • During a slide cut, gently push the carriage toward the guide fence without stopping. If the carriage movement is stopped during the cut, a mark will be left in the workpiece and the precision of the cut will be impaired. 16
1 1. Clamp screw 002202 002203 1. Press cutting (cutting small workpieces) Workpieces up to 50 mm (2”) high and 97 mm (3-13/16”) wide can be cut in the following way. Push the carriage toward the guide fence fully and tighten the clamp screw on the turn base clockwise to secure the carriage. Secure the workpiece with the vise. Switch on the tool without the blade making any contact and wait until the blade attains full speed before lower ing. Then gently lower the handle to the fully lowered position to cut the workpiece. When the cut is com pleted, switch off the tool and WAIT UNTIL THE BLADE HAS COME TO A COMPLETE STOP before returning the blade to its fully elevated position. CAUTION: • Firmly tighten the clamp screw on the turn base clockwise so that the carriage will not move during operation. Insufficient tightening may cause unexpected kickback of the blade. Possible serious PERSONAL INJURY may result. 2. Slide (push) cutting (cutting wide workpieces) Loosen the clamp screw on the turn base counterclock wise so that the carriage can slide freely. Secure the workpiece with the vise. Pull the carriage toward you fully. Switch on the tool without the blade making any contact and wait until the blade attains full speed. Press down the handle and PUSH THE CARRIAGE TOWARD THE GUIDE FENCE AND THROUGH THE WORK PIECE. When the cut is completed, switch off the tool and WAIT UNTIL THE BLADE HAS COME TO A COM PLETE STOP before returning the blade to its fully ele vated position. CAUTION: • Whenever performing the slide cut, FIRST PULL THE CARRIAGE TOWARD YOU FULLY and press down the handle to the fully lowered position, then PUSH THE CARRIAGE TOWARD THE GUIDE FENCE. NEVER START THE CUT WITH THE CARRIAGE NOT FULLY PULLED TOWARD YOU. If you perform the slide cut without pulling the carriage fully or if you perform the slide cut toward your direction, the blade may kickback unexpectedly with the potential to cause serious PERSONAL INJURY.
002204 • Never perform the slide cut with the handle locked in the lowered position by pressing the stopper pin. • Never loosen the clamp screw which secures the carriage while the blade is rotating. This may cause serious injury. 3. Miter cutting Refer to the previously covered “Adjusting the miter angle”. 4. Bevel cut Loosen the lever and tilt the saw blade to set the bevel angle (Refer to the previously covered “Adjusting the bevel angle”). Be sure to retighten the lever firmly to secure the selected bevel angle safely. Secure the work piece with a vise. Make sure the carriage is pulled all the way back toward the operator. Switch on the tool without the blade making any contact and wait until the blade attains full speed. Then gently lower the handle to the fully lowered position while applying pressure in parallel with the blade and PUSH THE CARRIAGE TOWARD THE GUIDE FENCE TO CUT THE WORKPIECE. When the cut is completed, switch off the tool and WAIT UNTIL THE BLADE HAS COME TO A COMPLETE STOP before returning the blade to its fully elevated position. CAUTION: • Always be sure that the blade will move down to bevel direction during a bevel cut. Keep hands out of path of saw blade. • During a bevel cut, it may create a condition whereby the piece cut off will come to rest against the side of the blade. If the blade is raised while the blade is still rotating, this piece may be caught by the blade, causing fragments to be scattered which is dangerous. The blade should be raised ONLY after the blade has come to a complete stop. • When pressing the handle down, apply pressure parallel to the blade. If the pressure is not parallel to the blade during a cut, the angle of the blade might be shifted and the precision of the cut will be impaired. 5. Compound cutting Compound cutting is the process in which a bevel angle is made at the same time in which a miter angle is being cut on a workpiece. Compound cutting can be performed at angle shown in the table.
