Making a rip cut (Fig. 28)
WARNING: Make sure the blade guard assembly is
installed and working properly to avoid possible
serious injury.
Set blade to correct depth for workpiece.
Position the rip fence the desired distance from the
blade for the cut and securely lock the handle.
When ripping a long workpiece, place a support the
same height as the table surface behind the saw, and on
the sides as needed, for the cut work.
Install feather board in the appropriate position for the
cut being made.
Make sure the wood is clear of the blade before turning
on the saw.
Turn the saw on.
Position workpiece flat on table with edge flush against
rip fence. Let blade build up to full speed before feeding
workpiece into blade.
Once blade has made contact with workpiece, use hand
closest to rip fence for guidance. Make sure edge of
workpiece remains in solid contact with both rip fence
and surface of table. If ripping a narrow piece, attach the
sub fence assembly to rip fence, use push stick and/or
push blocks to move piece through cut and past blade.
When cut is complete, turn saw off. Wait for blade to
come to a complete stop before removing workpiece.
WARNING: When ripping, always apply the
workpiece feeding force between the fence and the
saw blade. Use a push stick when the distance
between the fence and the saw blade is less than 6 in.
(152 mm), and use a push block when this distance is
less than 2 in. (51 mm). Cutting aids will keep your
hand at a safe distance from the saw blade.
