CROSSCUTTING (FIGURE UU)
To prevent serious injury:
• Do not allow familiarity or frequent
use of your table saw to cause
careless mistakes. Remember that
even a careless fraction of a second
is enough to cause a severe injury.
• Keep both hands away from the
blade and the path of the blade.
• Never attempt to pull the workpiece
backwards during a cutting
operation. This will cause kickback
and serious injury to the user can
• Remove the rip fence and place the
miter gauge in the miter gauge groove
on the table.
• Adjust the blade height so that it is
1/8 in. higher than the top of the
• Hold the workpiece firmly against the
miter gauge with the blade path in line
with the desired cut location. Move the
workpiece to a 1 in. distance from the
• Start the saw and wait for the blade
to come up to full speed. Never stand
directly in line of the saw blade path,
always stand to the side of the blade
that you are cutting on.
• Keep the workpiece (1) against the
face of the miter gauge (2) and flat
against the table. Then slowly push the
workpiece through the blade.
• Do not try to pull the workpiece back
with the blade turning. Turn the switch
OFF, and carefully slide the workpiece
out when the blade has completely
Always position the
larger surface of the workpiece on the
table when crosscutting and/or bevel
crosscutting to avoid instability.
USING THE WOOD FACING ON THE
MITER GAUGE (FIGURE VV)
Slots are provided in the miter gauge for
attaching an auxiliary facing (1) 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 it to the
miter gauge with screws. Make sure the
facing does not interfere with the proper
operation of the saw blade guard. When
cutting long workpieces, you can make
a simple outfeed support by clamping a
piece of plywood to a sawhorse.

This cutting operation is the same as
crosscutting except the blade is at a bevel
angle other than 0°.
side of the blade during this type of
cut. The miter gauge must be in the
right side groove because the bevel
angle may cause the blade guard to
interfere with the cut if used on the left
• Lower the blade to the down position.
• Loosen the blade lock knob and adjust
the blade (1) to the desired angle.
Tighten the blade lock knob.
• Loosen the miter gauge lock handle (2)
and adjust the miter gauge to 90°.
Tighten the lock handle (2).
