COMPOUND MITER CROSSCUTTING
0°~45° blade bevel & 0°~45° miter angle
This sawing operation combines a miter
angle with a bevel angle.
Always work to the right
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
• Set the miter gauge (1) to the desired
• Place the miter gauge in the right side
miter gauge groove of the table.
• Set the blade (2) bevel to the desired
• Hold workpiece (3) firmly against the
face of the miter gauge throughout the
MITERING (FIGURE YY)
0°~45° miter angle
This sawing operation is the same as
crosscutting except the miter gauge is
locked at an angle other than 90°.
• Set the blade (1) to 0° bevel angle.
• Set the miter gauge (2) at the desired
miter angle and lock in position by
tightening the miter gauge lock handle.
• Hold the workpiece (3) firmly against
the face of the miter gauge throughout
the cutting operation.
USING THE WOOD FACING ON THE
RIP FENCE (FIGURE ZZ)
When performing some special cutting
operations, you can add a wood facing to
either side of the rip fence (1).
• Use a smooth straight 3/4 in. thick
wood board (2) that is as long as the rip
• Attach the wood facing to the fence with
wood screws (3) (not included) through
the holes in the fence. A wood fence
should be used when ripping material
such as thin paneling to prevent the
material from catching between the
bottom of the fence and the table.
