WARNING:
Disconnect power before attempting any of the
following procedures. Be certain switch is in OFF position and
safety disconnect (or breaker) is in OFF or open position. Saw
blade must not be moving. Saw blade will rotate freely after
motor is turned off. Allow blade to come to a complete stop
before attempting any of the following procedures.
WARNING:
The operation of any power tool can result in
foreign objects being thrown into the eyes, which can result in
severe eye damage. Always wear safety goggles complying
with United States ANSI Z87.1 before commencing
power tool
operation.
BLADE
HEIGHT
ADJUSTMENT
Refer to Figures 7 and 9, pages 18 and 22.
Blade height is controlled by handwheel (Fig. 9, No. 27) on
the front of the saw.
To adjust height, loosen locking hand knob (Fig. 9, No. 23).
Rotate knob counterclockwise
approximately three turns.
Turn handwheel to desired blade height.
CAUTION:
For safety, blade should be raised only '/8" above
the surface of the material to be cut. However, if hollow
ground blades are used, raise blade to its maximum height to
allow for greater blade clearance.
Lock blade height into position. Lock handwheel (Fig. 9,
No. 27) by tightening locking knob (Fig. 9, No. 23) clock-
wise. Tighten only until snug.
IMPORTANT: Do not over tighten. Only a small amount of
pressure is necessary to lock handwheel securely.
The blade height mechanism has upper and lower limit
stops (Fig. 7, Nos. 17 and 37). These limit stops are set at
the factory and need no further adjustment.
BLADE
TILT ADJUSTMENT
Refer to Figures 8 and 9, pages 20 and 22.
The saw blade can be set at any angle between 90 ° and
45 °. Blade tilt is controlled by the handwheel (Fig. 9, No.
27) on the left side of the saw. The indicator (Fig. 8, No. 15)
on front of saw shows the tilt angle of the blade.
To adjust tilt, loosen locking hand knob (Fig. 9, No. 23).
Rotate knob counterclockwise
at least three turns. Turn
handwheel to desired blade angle. Lock blade angle into
position.
Lock handwheel (Fig. 9, No. 27) by tightening locking hand
knob (Fig. 9, No. 23) clockwise. Tighten only until snug.
The saw is equipped with positive stops at 90 ° and 45 °.
These positive stops allow operator to position saw blade
at 90 ° and 45 ° quickly and accurately.
90 ° STOP ADJUSTMENT
Refer to Figure 8, page 20.
Raise saw blade above table as far as possible. Set blade
at 90 ° to table by turning the tilting handwheel. Place a
square on table and check to see if blade is perpendicular
to the table. When checking put square flush against saw
blade. Do not put square on teeth of saw blade.
If 90 ° adjustment is necessary, loosen Iocknut (No. 19) on
adjusting bolt (No. 21) and turn adjusting bolt.
Using the square, rotate the tilting handwheel until blade is
90 ° to table. When exactly at 90 °, turn adjusting bolt (No.
21) against the lug on the front trunnion. Do not turn too
far; recheck 90 °. Tighten Iocknut securely.
Check tilt indicator pointer. If necessary, adjust pointer so it
points to 0° mark on scale. To adjust pointer, remove
handwheel and loosen screw (No. 13). Be sure to tighten
screw securely after adjustment is completed.
