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.
1.
Press cutting (cutting small workpieces)
Fig.37
Workpieces up to 50 mm high and 97 mm wide can
be cut in the following way.
Push the carriage toward the guide fence fully and
tighten two clamp screws which secure the slide
poles 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 lowering. Then
gently lower the handle to the fully lowered position
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:
Firmly tighten two clamping screws which secure
the slide poles 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)
Fig.38
Loosen two clamp screws which secure the slide
poles counterclockwise 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
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:
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,
unexpectedly with the potential to cause serious
AND
THROUGH
the
blade
may
kickback
PERSONAL INJURY.
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
Fig.39
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 workpiece 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
THE
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 the angle shown in the
table.
