o
Before Each Use
Support the saw so the table is level and the saw does
not rock,
When using a table extension longer than 12" attached
to any side of the saw, bolt the saw to a stationary sur-
face or prop up the outer end of the extension from the
floor or bench top to keep the saw from tipping.
Put the saw where neither operator nor bystanders
must stand in line with the sawblade.
..... - .... w
= To avoid injury from electrical shock, make sure your
fingers do not touch the plug's metal prongs wlqen
plugging in or unplugging the saw.
Never Stand On Tool. Serious injury could occur if the
tool tips or you accidentally hit the cutting tool. Do not
store anything above or near the tool where anyone
might stand on the tool to reach them.
inspect your saw.
o To avoid injury from accidental starting, turn the switch
off, unplug the saw, and remove the switch key before
raising or removing the guard, changing the cutting
tool, changing the setup, or adjusting anything. Make
sure switch is in OFF position before plugging in.
Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of mov-
ing parts, breakage of parts, saw stability, and any
other conditions that may affect the way the saw
works.
If any part is missing, bent or broken in any way, or any
electrical part does not work properly, turn the saw off
and unplug the saw.
,I
To Avoid injury From Jams, Slips Or Thrown Pieces (Kickbacks Or Throwbacks)
oReplace damaged or missing parts before using the
saw again,
-Use the sawblade guard, spreader and anti-kickback
pawls for any thru-sawing (whenever the blade comes
through the top of the workpiece). Make sure the anti-
kickback pawls work properly. Make sure the spreader
is in line with sawblade (See "Assembly-Aligning Blade
Guard" section).
Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form a habit of
checking for and removing keys and adjusting
wrenches from table top before turning saw on.
Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no parts
have excessive play.
Inspect Your Blade.
• Choose the right blade or cutting accessory for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to do.
Use The Right Tool. Don't force tool or attachment to
do a job it was not designed for.
°Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cutoff wheels.
friction wheels (metal cutting blades) wire wheels or
buffing wheels. They can fly apart explosively.
Cut only wood. wood like or plastic materials. Do not
cut metal.
Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully:
-To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel
(broken pieces of blade), use only 10" or smaller
blades or other cutting tools marked for speeds of
5000 rpm or higher.
- Always use unbroken, balanced blades designed to
fit this saw's 5/8 inch arbor.
-When thru-sawing (making cuts where the blade
comes through the workpiece top), always use a 10
inch diameter blade. This keeps the spreader closest
to the blade.
- Do not over tighten arbor nut. Use arbor wrenches to
"snug" it securely.
- Use only sharp blades with properly set teeth. Con-
suit a professional blade sharpener when in doubt.
- Keep blades clean of gum and resin
- Never use the saw without the proper blade insert.
Inspect your work area.
• Keep work area clean.
Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents. Floor
must not be slippery from wax or sawdust.
° To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
• To avoid injury, don't do layout assembly, or setup
work on the table while blade is spinning. It could cut
or throw anything hitting the blade.
Plan your work
Use the right tool. Don't force tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed for.
Inspect your workpiece.
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut.
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it will not slip and pinch the blade:
A piece of molding for example, must lie flat or be held
by a fixture or jig that will not let it twist_ rock or slip
while being cut. Use jigs or fixtures where needed to
prevent workpiece from shifting.
• Use a different, better suited type of tool for work that
can't be made stable.
Plan your cut.
• To avoid kickbacks and throwbacks - when a part or all
of the workpiece binds on the blade and is thrown vio-
lently back toward the front of the saw:
- Never cut Freehand. Always use either a rip fence.
miter gauge or fixture to position and guide the work.
so it won't twist or bind on the blade and kick back.
- Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece
and its supports.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces.

Safety Instructions For Table
- Use extra supports (tables_ saw horses blocks, etc._
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not hold
down to the table top. Never use anolher person as a
substitute for atable extension, or as additional sup.
port for aworkpiece that Ls longer or wJder than the
basic saw table, or to help feed. support or pull the
werkpiece.

Additional Safety _nstructions
Rip Type Cuts.
oNever use the miler gauge when ripping.
,, Use a push stick whenever the fence is 2 or more
inches from the blade.
o When thru-sawing, use an auxiliary fence and push
block whenever the fence must be between !/2 and 2
inches of the blade.
o Never thru-saw rip cuts narrower than 1/2 inch. (See
"Basic Saw Operations_Ripping and Beret Ripping"
sections.)
,, Never rip anything shorter than 10" long.
,, When using a push stick or push block, the trailing end
of the board must be square. A push stick or block
against an uneven end could slip off or push the work
away from the fence.
,, A Featherboard can help guide the workpiece. (see
"Basic Saw Operation-Using Featherboards for Thru.-
Sawing." section)
° Always use featherboards for any non thru rip type cuts.
(See "Basic Saw Operations - Using Featherboards for
Non-Thru Sawing" section,
Before Starting.
,, To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, make sure
the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
* Before thru-sawing, check the anti-kickback pawls,
The pawls must stop a kickback once it has started.
Replace or sharpen anti-kickback pawls when points
become dull. (See "Maintaining Your Table Saw - Anti-
Kickback Pawls" section o)
° Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials may
be cut on your saw. However, since these are usually
quite hard and slippery, the anti-kickback pawls may
not stop a kickback. Therefore, be especially careful in
your setup and cutting procedures.
While Thru-sawing,
°To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, always
push forward on the section of the workpiece between
the sawblade and the rip fence. Never push forward on
the piece being cut off.

Crosscut Type Cuts.
*Never use the rip fence when crosscutting.
*An auxiliary wood facing attached to the miter gauge
can help prevent workpiece twisting and throwbacks.
Attach it to the slots provided. Make the facing long
enough and big enough to support your work Make
sure, however, it will not interfere with the sawbiade
guard.
Before Starting.
.Use jigs or fixtures to help L_oidany piece too smali to

110-120 Volt, 60 Hz. Tool information
NOTE: The plug supplied on your tool may not fit into the
outlet you are planning to use. Your local electrical code
may require slightly different power cord plug connec-
If the grounding instructions are not completely under-
stood, or if you are in doubt as to whether the tool is prop-
erly grounded check with a qualified electrician or service
tions. If these differences exist refer to and make the
proper adjustments per your local code before your tool
is plugged in and turned on.
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides apath of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped
with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding con-
ductor and a grounding plug, as shown. The plug must
be plugged into amatching outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided. If it will notfit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Atemporary adapter may be used to connect this plug to
a2-prong outlet as shown if a properly grounded three
prong outlet is not available. This temporary adapter
should be used only until a properly grounded three
prong outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green colored rigid ear, lug or the like, extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding con-
ductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conduc-
tor with insulation having an outer surface that is green
with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding
conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or
plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-ground-
ing conductor to alive terminal.

Motor Specifications and Electrical Requirements (continued)
CAUTION: To avoid motor damage, this motor
should be blown out or vacuumed frequently to
prevent sawdust buildup which will interfere with
normal motor ventilation.
1. Frequent "blowing" of fuses or tripping of circuit break-
ers may result if:
a. Motor is overloaded - Overloading can occur if you
feed too rapidly or if saw is misaligned.
b, Motor circuit is fused differently from recommenda-
tions - Always follow instructions for the proper fuse/
breaker. Do not use a fuse/breaker of greater
capacity without consulting a qualified electrician.
c. Low voltage - Although the motor is designed for
operation on the voltage and frequency specified on
motor nameplate, normal loads will be handled
safely on voltage not more than 10% above o r below
the nameplate voltage. Heavy loads, however.
require that voltage at motor terminals equals the
voltage specified on nameplate.
2. Most motor troubles may be traced to loose or incor-
rect connections, overloading, reduced input voltage
(such as small size wire in the supply circuit) or to
overly long supply circuit wire. Always check the con-
nections, the load and the supply circuit whenever
motor fails to perform satisfactorily. Check wire sizes
and length with the Wire Size Chart below.
Wire Sizes
NOTE: Make sure the proper extension cord is used and
is in good condition.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep this to a minimum and to prevent over-
heating and motor burn-out, use the table shown to
determine the minimum wire size (A.W.G.) extension
cord.
Use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-prong receptacles which
accept the tool's plug.

Safety instructions for Basic Saw Operations,
Before Each Use
Inspect your saw.
*To avoid injury from accidental starting, turn the switch
off, unplug the saw, and remove the switch key before
raising or removing the guard, changing the cutting
tool, changing the setup, or adjusting anything.
oCheck for alignment of moving parts, binding of mov-
ing parts, breakage of parts, saw stability, and any
other conditions that may affect the way the saw
works.
°If any part is missing, bent or broken in any way, or any
electrical part does not work properly, turn the saw off
and unplug the saw.
oReplace damaged or missing parts before using the
saw again.
,Use the sawblade guard, spreader and anti-kickback
pawls for any thru-sawing (whenever the blade comes
through the top of the workpiece). Make sure the anti-
kickback pawls work properly. Make sure the spreader
is _nline with sawblade:
,, Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form a habit of
checking for and removing keys and wrenches from
table top before turning saw on.
o Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no parts
have excessive play.
i
To Avoid injury From Jams, Slips Or Thrown Pieces (Kickbacks Or Throwbacks)
inspect Your Blade.
°Choose the right blade or cutting accessory for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to do.
Use The Right Tool. Don't force tool or attachment to
do a job it was not designed for.
Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cutoff wheels,
friction wheels (metal cutting blades) wire wheels or
buffing wheels. They can fly apart explosively.
Cut only wood. wood like or plastic materials. Do not
cut metal.
• Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully:
-To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel
(broken pieces of blade), use only 10" or smaller
blades or other cutting tools marked for speeds of
5000 rpm or higher.
- Always use unbroken, balanced blades designed to
fit this saw's 5/8 inch arbor.
-When thru-sawing (making cuts where the blade
comes through the workpiece top), always use a 10
inch diameter blade. This keeps the spreader in clos-
est to the blade.
- Do not over tighten arbor nut. Use arbor wrenches to
"snug" it securely.
- Use only sharp blades with properly set teeth. Con-
suit a professional blade sharpener when in doubt.
- Keep blades clean of gum and resin.
- Never use the saw without the proper blade insert.
Inspect your work area.
Keep work area clean.
Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents. Floor
must not be slippery from wax or sawdust.
°To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
To avoid injury, don't do layout, assembly, or setup
work on the table while blade is spinning. It could cut
or throw anything hitting the blade.
Plan your work
°Plan ahead to protect your eyes, hands, face. ears.
,, Use the right tool. Don't force tool or attachment to do
ajob it was not designed for.
Dress for safety
,, Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts.
o Wear nonslip footwear.
° Tie back long hair.
,, Rotl long sleeves above the elbow.
oNoise levels vary widely. To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using table
saw for hours at a time.
oAny power saw can throw foreign objects into the
eyes. This can result in permanent eye damage: Wear
safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI
Z87.1 (shown on package). Everyday eyeglasses have
only impact resistant lenses. They are not safety
glasses. Safety goggles are available at Sears retail
stores. Glasses or goggles not in compliance with
ANSI Z87.1 could seriously hurt you when they break.
WEAR YOUR
oFor dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.
Inspect your workpiece.
°Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut.
° When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it will not slip and pinch the blade:
oA piece of molding for example, must lie flat or be held
by afixture of jig that will not let it twist, rock or slip
while being cut. Use jigs or fixtures where needed to
prevent workpiece shifting,
"Use a different, better suited type of tool for work that
can't be made stable.

Safety instructions for Basic Saw Operations
Plan your cut.
-To avoid kickbacks and throwbacks which occur when
a part or all of the workpiece binds on the blade and is
thrown violently back toward the front of the saw:
- Never cut Freehand. Always use either a rip fence,
miter gauge or fixture to position and guide the work,
so it won't twist or bind on the blade and kickback.
- Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece
and its supports.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces.
-Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, b locks, etc.)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not held
down to the table top. Never use another person as a
substitute for a table extension, or as additional sup-
port for a workpiece that is longer or wider than the
basic saw table, or to help feed, support or pull the
workpiece.
Never confine the piece being cut off, that is, the piece
not against the fence, miter gauge or fixture. Never
hold it. clamp it, touch it. or use length stops against it.
It must be free to move. If confined, it could get
wedged against the blade and cause a kickback or
throwback.
Never cut more than one workpiece at a time,
Never turn your table saw "ON" before clearing every-
thing except the workpiece and related support
devices off the table,
Whenever Sawblade is Spinning
iWARNING: Don't allow familiarity (gained from fre-
quent use of your table saw) cause acare|ess mis-
take. Always remember that acareless fraction of
a second is enough to cause a severe injury.
Plan the way you will push the workpiece through.
Never puJl the workpiece through. Start and finish
the cut from the front of the table saw.
oNever put your fingers or hands in the path of the
sawbiade or other cutting tool.
oNever reach in back of the cutting tool with either
hand to hold down or support the workpiece, to
remove wood scraps, or for any other reason.
.Avoid hand positions where a sudden slip could cause
fingers or a hand to move into a sawblade or other cut-
ting tool.
.Don't overreach. Always keep good footing and balance.
o Push the workpiece against the rotation of the blade.
never feed material into the cutting tool from the rear of
the saw.
o Always push the workpiece all the way past the saw-
blade.
As much as possible, keep your face and body to one
side of the sawblade, out of line with a possible kick-
back or throwback.
Set the cutting tool as low as possible for the cut you're
planning.
Avoid Accidental Starting.
• Make sure switch is "OFF" before plugging saw into a
power outlet.
Before freeing jammed material.
oBefore actually cutting with the saw, watch it while it
runs for a short while. If it makes an unfamiliar noise or
vibrates a lot, stop immediately. Turn the saw off.
Unplug the saw. Do not restart until finding and cor-

Make sure the top of the arbor or cutting tool turns
toward the front of the saw.
Keep Children Away.
-Keep all visitors a safe distance from the table saw,
Make sure bystanders are clear of the table saw and
workpiece.
Don't Force Tool ....
-Let the blade reach full speed before cutting-

Work Feed Devices ............. .......
Before cutting any wood on your saw, study a_ of the
"Basic Saw Operations".
As you learn new table saw woodworking techniques,
you'H see that many types of cuts need different support
and feeding devices, known as jigs or fixtures. They can
heRp you make cuts more accurately. By helping to
steady the workpiece and keep you away from the blade.
they can help you safely use your saw for certain cuts,
Many people custom build their own jigs and fixtures.
Jigs and fixtures are often designed for a particular cut.
You can use your table saw to easily make many jigs and
fixtures. To get you started, we've included instructions
for some simple ones. After you have made a few prac-
tice cuts, make up these jigs before starting any projects.
The use of these devices is explained in "Basic Saw
Operations" section,

describe one way you can make a push block.
Making the base:
Start with apiece of 3/8 inch plywood at least 5-5/8
inches wide or wider and 12 inches tong or longer.
Make two ripcuts. Perform the first ripcut along the side
of the 3/8" wide strip. Next, dpcut the 3/8" plywood to a
width of 5-1/8".
oCrosscut the 3/8" plywood to 12" long.
eCrosscut a 2-1/2" piece off the 3/8" wide by 3/8" thick
strip and save this short piece for later.
oThe next cuts wil! create the 3/8" by 9-1/2" notch in the
base, Mark the long edge of the board 2-1/2" from one
end. Make a crosscut into the edge on the mark, stop-
ping about 3/4" into the board. Set the saw and rip the
width to 4-3/4" along the same edge as the stopped

shown.
IMPORTANT: Do not use nails or screws. This is to pre-
vent dulling of the sawblade in the event you cut into the
push block.
Position the handle at the center of the plywood base
as shown. Fasten them together with glue and wood
screws.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the screw heads do not stick
out fmrn the bottom of the base, they must be flush or
recessed. The bottom must be flat and smooth enough to
slide along the auxiliary fence you are now ready to
make.

Slots are provided in the miter gauge for attaching an
auxiliary facing to make it easier to cut very long or short
pieces. Select a suitable piece of smooth wood, drill two
holes through it and attach with screws. Make sure the
facing does not interfere with the proper operation of the
sawblade guard.
When cutting long workpieces, you can make a simple
support by clamping a piece of plywood to a sawhorse.

Repetitive Crosscutting
Definition Cutting a quantity of pieces the same length
without havingto mark each piece.
• Use the stop rods (optional accessory not shown) only
for cuttingduplicate pieces 6 inches long and longer.
Follow all safety precautions and operational instruc-
tions f0 r cross cutting.
°When making repetitive cuts from a long workpiece,
make sure it is adequately supported.
WARNING: Never use the rip fence as a direct
length stop because the cutoff piece could bind
between the fence and the blade causing a kick-
back.
-When making repetitive cuts shorter than 6inches,
clamp a block of wood 3" tong to the fence at desired
length to act as a length stop.
-Slide the workpiece along the miter gauge until it
touches the block...hold the workpiece securely
against the miter gauge or clamp it with the hold-
down clamp (optional accessory not shown).
- Make the cut...turn the saw oft...remove the piece
after the blade has stopped and before cutting the
next piece.
WARNING: To avoid kickback from twisting the
workpiece, when clamping the block make sure
that the end of the block is well in front of the saw-
blade. Be sure it is clamped securely.

formed using the rip fence together with the auxiliary
fence/work support, push stick or push block.
IWARNING: your own safety, always
For read and
observe all safety precautions listed in manual and
On SaW.
Additional Safety instructions for Rip Cuts
°Never use the miter gauge when ripping
• Use a push stick whenever the fence is 2 or more
inches from the blade.
When thru-sawing, use an auxiliary fence and push
block whenever the fence must be between 1/2 and 2
inch es from the blade.
-Never thru-saw rip cuts narrower than 1/2 inch.
°Never rip anything shorter than 10" tong.
When using a push stick or push block, the trailing end
of the workpiece must be square. A push stick or block
against an uneven end could slip off or push the work-
piece away from the fence.
-A featherboard can help guide the workpiece. (See
"Basic Saw Operation-Using Featherboards for Thru-
Sawing" section.)
.Always use featherboards for any non thru-sawing rip
type cuts. (See "Basic Saw Operations-Using Feather-
boards for Non Thru-sawing" section)
Before Starting:
oTo avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, make sure
the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
.Before thru-sawing, check the anti-kickback pawls, the
pawls must stop a kickback once it has started.
Replace or sharpen anti-kickback pawls when points
become dull.
°Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials may
be cut on your saw. However, since these are usually
quite hard and slippery, the anti-kickback pawls may
not stop a kickback. Therefore, be especially careful in
your setup and cutting procedures.
While Thru-sawing:
° To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, always
push forward on the section of the workpiece between
the sawblade and the rip fence. Never push forward on
the piece being cut off.
Ripping
Definition: Cutting operation along the length of the work-
piece.
Position the fence to the desired width of rip and lock in
place.
Before starting to rip, be sure:
1. Rip fence is parallel to sawblade.
2. Spreader is properlyaligned with sawblade.
3. Anti-kickback pawls are functioning properly.
When ripping long boards or large panels, always use a
worksupport.A simple support can be made by clamping
a pieceof plywoodto a sawhorse.
WARNING: To avoid kickback, push forward only I
on the part of the workpiece that will pass between I
the blade and the fence.
Keep your hands out of the blade path.
Feed the workpiece by pushing forward only on the part
of the workpiece that will pass between the blade and the
fence.
Stop your left thumb at the front edge of the table. Finish
the cut with the appropriate pusher. ]lade

Ripping (continued)
Once the trai_ing end is on the table:
When "width of rip" is 2" or wider, use the push stick to
finish the work all the way past the blade.
Push Stick
When "width of rip" is narrower than 2" the push stick
cannot be used because the guard will interfere...use the
auxiliary fence and push block.
Attach auxiliary fence to rip fence with two "C" clamps.
Auxiliary
Fence
Feed the workpiece by hand along the auxiliary fence
until the end is approximately 1" past the front edge of the
table. Continue to feed using the push block.
Hold the workpiece in position and install the push block
by sliding it on top of the auxiliary fence/work support
(this may raise guard).

j WARN|NG: To avoid injury from blade contact 1
never thru-saw cuts narrower than 1/2" wide, I
Narrow strips thicker than the auxiliary fence/w0rk sup-
port may enter the guard and strike the baffle, Carefully
rinse guard only enough to clear the workpiece. Use
push b_ock to complete cut.
Bevel Ripping Narrow Work
When bevel ripping material 6" or narrower, use fence on
the rtght side of the btade only. This will provide more
space between the fence and the sawblade for use of a
p_sh stick. If the fence is mounted to the left. the saw-
btade guard may interfere with proper use of a push stick.
Baffle
Using Featherboards for Thru-Sawing
Featherboards are not employed for thru-sawing opera-
tions when using the miter gauge.
Featherboards are used to keep the work in contact with
the fence and table as shown, and to help stop kick-
backs.
Add a 7-1/2" high flat facing board to the fence, the full
tenth of the fence.
Mount teatherboards to facing board and table as shown,
so that leading edges of featherboards will support work-
piece,
tWARNING: Make sure the featherboard against the
edge presses only on the uncut portion (in front of
the blade), it might otherwise pinch the blade in
the k_f and cause a kickback
U-=- , _
Before starting the operation (switch "OFF" and blade
bek_w table surface):
1. install featherboards so they exert pressure on the
workpiece; be positive they are securely attached.
2. Make sure by trial that the featherboards will stop a
kickback ifone should occur,

Resawing
Resawing is a rip cut made in a piece of wood through its
thickness. The piece is typically positioned on its edge, I{
the piece is narrower than 3-3/8" it can be resawn in one
pass with the blade guard in place. Extra supports or fix-
tures will be required when the edge resting on the table
is too narrow for the piece to be stable and when the
fence interferes with the blade guard. (See method
described below)
WARNING: Do not attempt to resaw bowed or]
warped material. _t can't be properly supported, it /
could kickback or bind.
NOTE: To resaw a piece of wood wider than 3-3/8", or a
piece needing extra support, it will be necessary to
remove the blade guard and use the auxilia,_ fence/work
support. (See "Wed<feed Devices".)
Clamp the auxiliary fence/work support, to the table so
that the workpiece will slide easily without binding
between the two fences and it will not tilt or move side-
ways.
Do not clamp directly to the bottom edge of the table
because the "swivel" of the clamp will not grip properly.
Place a small block of wood between the bottom edge of
the table and the "C" clamp.

making any adjustments.
Miter Gauge
NOTE: The slots for the stop pin and the graduations are
manufactured to very close tolerances which provide
accuracy for average woodworking. Un some cases
where extreme accuracy is required, when making angle
cuts, for exarnple, make atrial cut and then recheck it.
If necessary, the miter gauge head can be swiveled
slightly to compensate for any inaccuracy.
1. Loosen the "knob" and pull "stop pin" out.
2. Swivel the head. position it at "0", push the stop pin in,
lockthe handle.
3. The head should be square with the bar and the
pointer should point to "0". Readjust the pointer if nec-
essary.
4. If the head is not square with the bar, adjustments are
required.
A. Loosen the "knob" (1) and the "two screws" (2).
B. Position the head square withthe bar using acombi-
nation square. Tighten knob.
C. Push the stop pin into the slot in the head and twist
it.
D.Recheck with the square. If the head is still not
square, loosen the screws (2) and readjust the indi-
cator block.

Adjustments (continued) ..............................................................
Heeling Adjustment or Parallelism of Saw-
blade to Miter Gauge Groove
While cutting, the material must move in a straight line
parallel to the sawblade. Therefore, both the miter gauge
groove and the rip fence must be parallel to the saw-
blade.
Blade
Guard-._ Sawblade
WARNING: The blade must be parallel to the miter
gauge groove. Misaligned blades could bind on
workpiece. Workpiece could suddenly kickback.
You could be cut or hit.
If the sawblade is not parallel to the miter gauge groove,
the blade will bind at one end of the cut. This is known as
"Heeling").
WARNING: To avoid injury from accidental start,
make sure switch is "OFF" and plug is not con-
nected to power source outlet.
To check for parallelism:
1. Raise blade all the way up, raise blade guard.
2. Mark an "X" on one of the teeth which is set (bent) to
the left.
3. Place the head of a combination square in the groove.
Adjust blade of square so that is justtouches the tip of
the marked tooth.
4. Move square to rear, rotate blade to see if marked
tooth again touched blade of square.
5. If tooth touches square at front and rear sawblade is
parallel to miter gauge groove.
6. If tooth does not touch the same amount, the mecha-
nism underneath must be adjusted to make the blade
parallel to groove.
A. Rear trunnion must be moved toward to combination
square if there is aspace between marked tooth and
end of square in step 4.
B. Rear trunnion must be moved away from the square
if marked tooth pushed square out of position in the
groove.
7. Loosen all three screws that hold the rear trunnion and
all three screws that hold the front trunnion.
iWARNING: When reaching under table sawblade,
the teeth may be contacted causing injury. Wear
glove or remove blade.
NOTE: All six screws can be reached through back of
saw. Use a 9/16 inch wrench. To reach left-hand front
trunnion screw, tilt blade to 45°. After loosening
screws, reposition blade at 90°.
