DEPTH-OF-CUT
ADJUST-
NIENT (Fig. 5)
Always keep the correct depth-
of-cut setting. The correct
depth-of-cut
setting should
not exceed 1/4 inch below the
material to be cut. Only one
saw-blade tooth should show
beneath the material. If more
than one blade tooth shows,
then the depth of cut is too
deep. Excessive depth of cut
will increase the chance of
kickback and cause the cut to
be rough.
