CUT
See Figures 27 and 28.
A bevel cut is made by cuffing across the grain of the
workpiece with the blade angled to the fence and
miter table, A bevel cut is made with the miter table
set at the zero degree position and the blade set at an
angle between 0 ° and 45 °.
Fig. 26
Place the workpiece fiat on the miter table with
one edge securely against the fence. If the board
is warped, place the convex side against the
fence. If the concave edge of a board is placed
against the fence, the board could collapse on the
blade at the end of the cut, jamming the blade.
See Figures 33 and 34.
When cutting long pieces of lumber or molding,
support the opposite end of the stock with a roller
stand or with a work surface level with the saw
table.
Align cutting line on the workpiece with the edge
of saw blade.
Grasp the stock firmly with one hand and secure
it against the fence. Use the optional work clamp
or a C-clamp to secure the workpiece when
possible. See Figure 26.

WARNING:
To avoid serious personal injury,
keep your hands outside the no hands zone; at
least 3 in. from blade. Never perform any cuffing
operation freehand (without holding workpiece
against the fence). The blade could grab the
workpiece if it slips or twists.
Before turning on the saw, perform a dry run of the
cuffing operation just to make sure that no
problems will occur when the cut is made.
Grasp the saw handle firmly, press down on the
lock-oft lever, then squeeze the switch trigger.
Allow several seconds for the blade to reach
maximum speed.
