When the cut-off wheel has worn down considerably,
place a spacer block behind the workpiece as shown
in the figure. You can more efficiently utilize the worn
wheel by using the mid point on the periphery of the
wheel to cut the workpiece. Use a sturdy and non-flam-
mable material for a spacer block.

When cutting workpieces over 85 mm wide at an angle,
attach a straight piece of wood (spacer) over 190 mm
long x 40 mm wide to the guide plate as shown in the
figure. Attach this spacer with screws through the holes
in the guide plate. Make sure that the cut-off wheel does
not contact the spacer when the tool head is depressed.

When using a spacer block, install the
guide plate to the position nearest to the neck of
the tool head.
When the cut-off wheel has worn down, raise the cutting
position by putting a spacer block which is slightly nar-
rower than the workpiece as shown in the figure. This
will help you to utilize the cut-off wheel economically.

Long workpieces must be supported by blocks on
either side so that it will be level with the base top. Use
non-flammable material for supporting blocks.
