SECURE WORK. Use a clamp or vice to hold workpiece
when practical. It's safer than using your hand and frees
both hands to operate tool.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean
for better and safer performance. Follow instructions for
lubricating and changing accessories.
TURN UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG THE TOOL when preparing
and/or changing locations. Do not touch the plug blades
when inserting or removing the plug from an outlet.
DO NOT PLUG IN OR PULL OUT FROM POWER SUPPLY
WITH WET HANDS TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS.
PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask if the
cutting operation is dusty.
PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear ear plugs or earmuffs
during extended periods of operation.
WHEN OPERATING A POWER TOOL OUTSIDE, USE AN
OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORD MARKED "W-A" OR "W".
These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk
of electric shock.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA. Keep hands
away from blades. Do not reach underneath work or
around or over the blade while blade is rotating.
BLADE COASTS AFTER BEING TURNED OFF.
CAUTION: WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL
REPLACEMENT PARTS. INSPECT TOOL CORDS
PERIODICALLY. If damaged, have repaired by a quali ed
service technician at an authorized service facility. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-
grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the
equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal. Repair
or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately. Stay
constantly aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the rotating blade.
GROUND ALL TOOLS. If tool is equipped with three-prong
plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole electrical
receptacle.
CHECK WITH A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN or service
personnel, if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the
tool is properly grounded.
USE ONLY CORRECT ELECTRICAL DEVICES: 3-wire
extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and
3-hole receptacles that accept the tool's plug.
DO NOT MODIFY the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a quali ed
electrician.
KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM OIL AND
GREASE. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning. Never
use brake uid, gasoline, petroleum-based products, or
any solvents to clean tool.
USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Never use blade washers or
blade bolts that are defective or incorrect. The maximum
blade capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254mm).
BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL ADJUSTMENTS ARE
SECURE.
BE SURE BLADE PATH IS FREE OF NAILS. Inspect for and
remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts during use.
FIRMLY MOUNT THE TOOL ON A SECURE SURFACE TO
ENSURE ITS STABILITY BEFORE OPERATING THE TOOL.
NEVER START A TOOL WHEN ANY ROTATING COMPONENT
IS IN CONTACT WITH THE WORKPIECE.
WHEN SERVICING use only identical replacement parts.
Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
DOUBLE CHECK ALL SETUPS. Make sure blade is tight and
not making contact with saw or workpiece before
connecting to power supply.
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.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES

FIRMLY BOLT THE SAW TO A WORK BENCH OR LEG STAND
at approximately hip height.
NEVER OPERATE THE SAW ON THE FLOOR.
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback occurs when the
blade stalls rapidly and workpiece is driven back towards
the operator. It can pull your hand into the blade resulting
in serious personal injury. Stay out of blade path and turn
switch o immediately if blade binds or stalls.
USE RIP FENCE. Always use a fence or straight edge guide
when ripping.
REMOVE ALL FENCES AND AUXILIARY TABLES before
transporting saw. Failure to do so can result in an accident
causing possible serious personal injury and can also
damage the fences.
NEVER PLACE ARMS OR HANDS IN LINE WITH THE PATH
OF THE CUTTING BLADE.
ALWAYS lock the rip fence and secure bevel adjustment
rmly before cutting.
ALWAYS SECURE WORK firmly against the rip fence or
miter gauge.
ALWAYS USE A PUSH STICK. A push stick is a device used
to push a workpiece through the blade instead of using
your hands. Size and shape can vary but the push stick
must always be narrower than the workpiece to prevent
the push stick from contacting the saw blade. When
ripping narrow stock, always use a push stick, so your
hand does not come close to the saw blade. Use a
featherboard and push blocks for non-through cuts.
NEVER reach within three inches of the blade or cutter
with either hand for any reason.
MOVE THE RIP FENCE out of the way when cross cutting.
DO NOT USE THE MITER GAUGE AND RIP FENCE during
the same operation.
NEVER attempt to free a stalled saw blade without first
turning the saw OFF and disconnecting the saw from the
power source. If a workpiece or cut-o piece becomes
trapped inside the blade guard assembly. Turn saw o
and wait for blade to stop before lifting the blade guard
assembly and removing the piece.
