Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other construction activities contains
chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
= Lead from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks, cement and other masonry products

o Arsenic and chromiumfrom chemically treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals, work ina well ventilated area and work with approved Safety equipment such as
dust masks that are specially des}gnarl to filter out microscopic
particles.

the one shown below:

saw has a plug that looks like

To reduce the risk of eleclricat shock, this saw has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other] Tllis
plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If |he plug
does not fit fully in the curie! reverse the plug tf it st;tl
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the
proper outlet. DO riot change the plug in any way.

Double insulation does not take the place o! normal
safety precautions when operating this tool
To avoid electrocution:
1. Use only identical replacement parts when servicing a
toolwith double Insulation. Servicing should be
performed by a qualified technician
2, Do not use power tools tn wet or damp locations or
expose them to ra'=nor snow.

MOTOR SAFETY

PROTECTION

IMPORTANT:
To avoid motor damage, the motor sl_outd be blown out
or vacuumed frequently to keep sawdust from intedefing
with the motor ventilation,
t. CONNECT this saw to a 120V, 15 amp. circuit with a
15 amp, time delay fuse or circuit breaker. Using the
wrong size fuse can damage the motor..
2 If the motor won't start, release the tdgger swilch
immediately, UNPLUG "THE SAW, Check the saw
blade t.o make sure it turns freely< If the blade is Iree,
try to sled the saw again. If the motor still does not
start, refer to lhe "TROUBLESHOOTING
GUIDE"
3. If the tool suddenly stalls while cutting wood, release
the tdgger swltch, unplug the tool, and free the blade
from tile wood. The saw may now be started and the
cut flnisha&

4. FUSES may "blow" or circuit breakers may trip
frequently if:
a. MOTOR is overloaded - ovedoading can occur if
you feed too rapidly or make too many startJstops
in a shod time.
b. LINE VOLTAGE is more than 10% above or below
the nameplate voltage rating For heavy loads, the
voltage at motor terminals must equal the voltage
specified on the nameplate.
c,, IMPROPER or dull saw blades are used,
5. Most motor troubles may be traced to loose or
incorrect connections, overload, low voltage or
inadequate power supply widng, Always check the
connections, the load and supply circuit if the motor
doesn't run well. Check minimum gauge for the lenglh
of cord you are using on the chad below,
GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION CORDS
Use a proper extension cord. Make sure your
exlension cord is in good condition. When using an
ex'lension 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, resulling in loss of
power and cause overheating. The table below shows
the correct size to use depending on cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. II in doubt, use the nexl
heavier gauge The smaller lhe gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
Be sure your extension cord is property wired and in
good condition. Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified person before
using iL Protect your extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This
circuit must not be less than # 12 wire and should be
protected with a 15 Amp lime delay fuse. Before
connecting the to01to the power line, make sure the
switch is in the OFF position and the electric current is
raled the same as the current stamped on ti_e motor
nameplate, running at a lower voltage will damage the
motor.

CAUTION; This machine is NOT designed for cutting
masonry, masonry products & ferrous metals (steel,
iron, and iron-based metals ,) Use this miter saw to cut
only wood and wood by-products. Other material may
shatter, bind the blade, or create other dangers,
Remove eli nails that may be in the workpiece to
prevent sparking that could cause a fire.

workpiece shift after ff is cut.
Keep the cut off piece free to move sideways after
it is cut ell Otherwise, it could get wedged
against the blade and thrown vioIenw,
Only lhe workplace should be on the saw's table,
Secure work. Use clamps or a vise to help hold
the work when it's practical.

USE EXTRA CAUTION WITH LARGE OR ODD
SHAPED WORKPIECES.
Use extra supports (tables, sawhorses, blocks,
etc,) for workpieces large enough to tip°
O
Never use another person as a substitute for a
table extension, or as an addilJonal support for a
workplace that is longer or wider than the basic
miter saw table, or to heJp feed, support, or pull
the workplace.
=_ Do not use this saw to cut small pieces, It the
workplace being cut would cause your hand or
fingers to be within 7-tt4" inches of the saw blade
workpiece is too small Keep hands and fingers
out of the =no hands zone" area marked on the
saws table.
e
When cutting odd shaped wolf{pieces, plan your
work so it will not bind in the blade and cause
._ossible injury. Molding, for example, must lie flat
or be held by a fixture or jig that will not let it move
when cut.
o
Properly support round material such as dowel
rods. or tubing, which have a tendency to roll
when cut, causing the blade to "bite".

DRESS FOR SAFETY
Any power tool can throw foreign objects into tt3e eyes.
This can result in permanenl eye damage. Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses and are
not safety glasses. Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87 1 could seriously injure you
when they break.
e
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or
jewelry (rings, watches). They can get Caught and
draw you into moving parts,
•
Wear non-slip footwear,
e
Tie back long hair,
=
Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
e
Noise levels vary widely, To avoid possible
heating damage, wear ear plugs when using any
miter saw.
e
For dusty operations, wgar a dust ma_k along
with safety goggles.

To avoid injury, follow all applicable safety instructions,
when cutting non-ferrous metafs:
e
Use only saw blades specifically recommended
for non-ferrous metal cutting.
e
Do no! cut metal workpieces that must be hand
held. Clamp workpieces securely.
•
Cut nonferrous metals only if you are under the
supervision of an experienced person.

INSPECT YOUR WORKPIECE
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece being cut.
Plan your work to avoid small pieces that may bind,
or that are too small to clamp and get a solid grasp
on.

Plan the way you wilt grasp the workpiece from start to
finish. Avotd awkward operations and hand positions,
A sudden slip could cause your fingers or hand to
move into the blade.
