The Craftsman 15" Metal/Wood Cutting Band Saw is for
cutting ferrous and non-ferrous metals and also hard
and soft woods. The band saw features a unitized frame
of welded steel construction and a solid cast iron work
surface to ensure durability. Table tilts 45 ° and has a
miter gauge and precision machined rip fence for per-
forming many different operations. Fifteen inch bal-
anced cast iron wheels with ball bearings and rubber
treads accommodate
blade widths up to 3/4". A conve-
nient tensioning and tracking mechanism makes blade
changing quick and easy.

CAUTION:
Always observe the following safety
precautions:
° Make sure that blade guides and thrust bearings are
positioned and adjusted correctly to prevent side-
ways and rearward movement of the blade. Adjust
upper guide to just clear workpiece.
° Check to make sure blade is tensioned and tracking
properly. Do not over tension the blade in order to
prevent premature blade wear and breakage. Avoid
under tensioning to eliminate back and forth, side to
side blade movement as it cuts.
Use proper blade and speed for the cutting operation.
• After turning saw on, allow blade to come to full
speed before attempting any cutting operation.
Support workpiece properly and use a smooth
steady feed to guide work through the cut. Use push
sticks or push blocks when required.
Keep hands away and out of line with moving parts.
• Always wear eye protection.
