CAPACITY OF CUT
47 degree miter left and right
0 degree miter - Max. Height 3-1/2 inches - Max. Width 5-1/2 inches
45 degree miter Max. Height 3-1/2 inches Max. Width 3-7/8 inches
Bench mounting holes (8) are provided in all four feet to facilitate
bench mounting, as shown in Figure 1. (Two different sized holes are
provided to accommodate different sizes of screws. Use either hole, it
is not necessary to use both.) Always mount your saw firmly to
prevent movement. To enhance the tool's portability, it can be
mounted to a piece of 1/2" or thicker plywood which can then be
clamped to your work support or moved to other job sites and
NOTE: If you elect to mount your saw to a piece of plywood, make
sure that the mounting screws don't protrude from the bottom of the
wood. The plywood must sit flush on the work support. When
clamping the saw to any work surface, clamp only on the clamping
bosses where the mounting screw holes are located. Clamping at any
other point will interfere with the proper operation of the saw.
CAUTION: To prevent binding and inaccuracy, be sure the
mounting surface is not warped or otherwise uneven. If the saw rocks
on the surface, place a thin piece of material under one saw foot until
the saw sits firmly on the mounting surface.
