ENGLISH
Never use warped saw blades or saw blades with
cracked or broken teeth. Sharp and properly set saw
blades minimize binding, stalling and kickback.
4) Table saw operating procedure warnings
a) Turn o the table saw and disconnect the power cord
when removing the table insert, changing the saw blade
or making adjustments to the riving knife, anti-kickback
device or saw blade guard, and when the machine is left
unattended. Precautionary measures will avoid
accidents.
b) Never leave the table saw running unattended. Turn it
o and don't leave the tool until it comes to a complete
stop. An unattended running saw is an uncontrolled
hazard.
c) Locate the table saw in a well-lit and level area where
you can maintain good footing and balance. It should
be installed in an area that provides enough room to
easily handle the size of your workpiece. Cramped, dark
areas, and uneven slippery oors invite accidents.
d) Frequently clean and remove sawdust from under the
saw table and/or the dust collection device. Turn o and
unplug saw to perform this action. Accumulated
sawdust is combustible and may self-ignite.
e) The table saw must be secured. A table saw that is not
properly secured may move or tip over.
f) Remove tools, wood scraps, etc. from the table before
the table saw is turned on. Distraction or a potential jam
can be dangerous.
g) Always use saw blades with correct size and shape
(diamond versus round) of arbor holes. Saw blades
that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw
will run o -center, causing loss of control.
h) Never use damaged or incorrect saw blade mounting
means such as anges, saw blade washers, bolts or nuts.
These mounting means were specially designed for your
saw, for safe operation and optimum performance.
i) Never stand on the table saw, do not use it as a step
stool. Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if
the blade is accidentally contacted.
j) Make sure that the saw blade is installed to rotate in the
proper direction. Do not use grinding wheels, wire
brushes, or abrasive wheels on a table saw. Improper
saw blade installation or use of accessories not
recommended may cause serious injury.
WARNING: Read and understand all instructions.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may
result in electric shock, and/or serious personal injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.

WARNING: Read warnings and conditions about
your carbide tipped saw blade.
WARNING: Do not operate the saw without the
proper blade guard in place for all through cut
operations. Make sure the blade guard is reinstalled
immediately after nishing any non-through cut
operations which require removal of the blade guard.
Carbide is a very hard but brittle material. Care should be
taken while mounting, using and storing carbide tipped
blades to prevent accidental damage.
Slight shocks, such as striking the tip, can seriously
damage the blade. Foreign objects on the work piece, such
as wire or nails, can also cause tips to crack or break o .
Before using, always visually examine the blade and tips
for cracks, breakage, missing or loose tips, or other
damage. Turn o and unplug saw to perform this action.
Do not use if damage is suspected. Failure to heed safety
instructions and warnings can result in serious bodily
injury or loss of eyesight.

result in electric shock, and/or serious personal injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES

KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in good working order. Blade
guard must be in place for all through cut operations.
Never operate the saw without the blade guard in place
for any cut which does not require it to be removed. Make
sure the blade guard is operating properly before each use.
A guard that is loose, damaged, or is not functioning
correctly must be repaired or replaced.
DO NOT leave tools or pieces of wood on the saw while it
is in operation. Distraction or a potential jam can be
dangerous.
KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. All visitors should
wear safety glasses and be kept a safe distance from work
area. Do not let visitors contact tool or extension cord
while operating.
MAKE WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF with padlocks and
master switches, or by removing starter keys.
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your
extension cord is in good condition. Use only a cord heavy
enough to carry the current your product will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting
in loss of power and overheating. A wire gauge size
(A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension
cord 25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier
the cord.
DRESS PROPERLY. Rubber gloves and nonskid footwear
are recommended when working outdoors.
ALWAYS wear safety goggles that comply with United
States ANSI Z87.1 and a face shield or dust mask if
operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact resistant lenses, they are NOT safety glasses.
