OPERATION
TO CROSS
CUT
OR RIP CUT
When making a cross cut or rip cut, align yeur line of cut with
the outer blade guide notch on the saw base as shown in
figure 13 Since blade thicknesses vary, always make a trial
cut in scrap material along a guideline to determine how
much, if any, the guideline must be offset to produce an
accurate cut. NOTE: The distance from the line of cut to the
guideline is the amount you should offset the guideline.
EDGE
GUIDE
(RIP GUIDE)
Use a rip guide when making rip cuts up to five inches wide
It helps prevent the blade from twisting in a cuL The blade
twisting in a cut can cause kickback. A rip guide is available
at your Sears Catalog Order or Retail Store,
TO ASSEMBLE
RIP GUIDE
1. Unplug your saw
2. Place rip guide through holes in saw base as shown in
figure 14.
3. Adjust rip guide to the length needed for the cut.
4 Tighten edge guide screw securely.
When using a rip guide, position the face of the rip guide firmly
against the edge of work. This makes for a true cut without
pinching the blade. The guiding edge of work must be straight
for your cut to be straight
Use caution to prevent the blade
from binding in the cut_
TO BEVEL
CUT
The angle of cut of your saw may be adjusted to any desired
setting between zero and 51 5°. NOTE: When making cuts
at 51.5 ° blade should be set at full depth of cut, with edge
guide screw removed.
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 Figure
15. Align your line of cut with the inner blade guide notch on
the saw base when making 45 ° bevel cuts.
Since blade
thicknesses
vary and different
angles
require different
settings,
always make a trial cut in scrap material along
a guideline to determine how much you should offset the
guideline on the board to be cut.
When making a bevel cut hold your saw firmly with both hands
as shown in figure 16. Rest the front edge of the base on the
work.
Push in the lock-off button and squeeze the switch
trigger. ALWAYS let the blade reach full speed, then guide
your saw into the work.
After you complete your cut release the trigger and allow the
blade to come to a complete stop.
AFTER the blade has
stolr_ped, lift your saw from the work.
