MAKING CROSS CUTS OR RIP CUTS
1. When making cross or rip cuts, align
your line of cut with the outer blade
_suide notch on the base of the saw
ee Fig. 12).
2. Since blade thicknesses vary, ALWAYS
make a trial cut in scrap material along
the guideline to determine how much,
if any the guideline must be offset to
get an accurate cut.
MAKING BEVEL CUTS
1. Your saw can be adjusted
to cut at any
angle between
0 ° and 45 °. When
making
45 ° bevel cuts, there is a notch
in the saw base to help you line up the
blade with the line of cut (See Fig. 13).
2. Align your line of cut with the inner
blade guide notch on the base of the
saw when making 45 ° bevel cuts.
3. Since
blade thicknesse
can vary and
different angles
require different
settings,
ALWAYS
make a trial cut in scrap
materials
along a guideline to determine
how much you should offset the guideline
on the board to be cut.
4. When making
a bevel cut ALWAYS
hold
your saw firmly with both hands
(See Fig. 14).
5. Rest the front edge of the base on the
workpiece.
Then squeeze
the trigger
switch to start the saw. ALWAYS
let the
blade reach full speed, then guide the
saw into the workpiece.
