cut green lumber can heavily load the saw which can lead to stalling. Push the saw slower when this occurs.
Don't remove saw from work during a cut while the blade is moving.
Allow saw to reach full speed before blade contacts material to be cut. Starting the saw with the blade
against the work or pushed forward into cut can lead to stalling or sudden backward movement of saw.
Never attempt to lift the saw when making a bevel cut. This will lead to blade binding and stalling.
Always secure work to prevent workpiece movement during cut.
Do not try to force saw back on line if your cut begins to go off line. This can cause KICKBACK. Stop saw and
allow blade to coast down to a stop. Withdraw from cut and start a new cut on the line.
Set depth adjustment of saw such that one tooth of the blade projects below the workpiece as shown (Fig. 6).
Do not back up a rotating blade in the cut. Twisting the saw can cause the back edge of the blade to dig into
he material, climb out of the work and run back toward the operator.
Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
Some wood contains preservatives such as copper chromium arsenate (CCA) which can be toxic. When
cutting these materials, extra care should be taken to avoid inhalation and minimize skin contact.
