1. Your saw can be adjusted to cut at any angle between
0° and 54.5 °, When making 45 ° bevel cuts, there is a
notch in the saw base to help you line up the
bfade with the line of cut (See Fig 15)
2. Align your line of cut with the inner blade guide notch
or] the base of the saw when making 45 ° beve! cuts
3. Since blade thicknesses 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 bfade from the guideline to make an
accurate cut
4. When making a bevel cut ALWAYS hold your saw
firmly with both hands (See Fig 16)
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
