STARTING
SAW
WARNING:
Never operate
saw without
blade
guards
in
place. Be sure blade
is not in contact
with workpiece
when
motor
is started.
Start
motor and allow saw to come
to full
speed.
WARNING:
Make sure
the electrical
characteristics
of motor
nameplate
and power source
are the same.
Saw is fitted with a safety
ON/OFF
switch
on front of
cabinet.
To turn saw on, stand
to either
side of the blade--never
in
line with it. Push green
START. Always
allow saw blade
to
come
up to full speed
before cutting.
Do not turn motor switch
ON and OFF rapidly.
This action
overheats
the motor and may cause
saw blade to loosen.
Never leave saw while
the power
is on.
To turn saw off, push red STOR
Never leave saw until cut-
ting tool has come
to a complete
stop.
WARNING:
For your own safety,
lower blade
or cutting
tool
below
table surface.
If blade is tilted,
return
it to vertical
posi-
tion. Turn off safety disconnect
or circuit
breaker
when saw is
not in use.
BLADE
SELECTION
Blade
selection
is based
on type of material
being
cut and
how it will be cut. There
are three
general
types
of saw
blades:
rip saw blades
cut with grain
of wood, cut-off
saw
blades
cut across
grain,
and combination
saw blades
cut with
grain,
across
grain
and any angle to grain.
Blades
vary in many aspects.
When
selecting
a blade, the fol-
lowing
blade characteristics
should
match
up with operation
to be performed
and type of material
to be cut: type of steel;
quality
of steel; tooth style;
tooth set; carbide
tipped;
grind;
number
of teeth
and size.
IMPORTANT:
Your saw is only as accurate
and efficient
as
blade
or cutting
tool used.
First,
be certain
to use the appropriate
type of cutting
tool for
the operation
to be performed.
Second,
it is strongly
recom-
mended
that high-quality
blades
and cutting
tools
be used.
Be
certain
blades
and cutting
tools are kept sharp
and in good
working
order. Check
blades
periodically
and replace
or
sharpen
if necessary.
WARNING:
Do not attempt
under
any circumstances,
to
service,
repair, dismantle,
or disassemble
any mechanical
or electrical
components
without
physically
disconnecting
all
power
sources.
CLEANING
Clean
off any preservative
on bright
(machined)
parts
with appropriate
solvent
(mineral
spirits).
Avoid
getting
cleaning
fluid on any rubber
parts
as they tend to deterio-
rate rubber.
Use soap
and soft water
on rubber
and plastic
parts.
After
cleaning,
lubricate
unpainted
surfaces
with a light
application
of medium
consistency
machine
oil. This
lubri-
cation
should
be repeated
at least once every
six months.
NOTE:
instead
of oil, a good quality
paste
wax can be
applied
to rip fence
and table surface.
Paste wax will enhance
movement
of workpieces.
In addition
to providing
lubrication,
paste wax will help prevent
rusting.
Keep your machine
and your workshop
clean.
Do not
allow sawdust
to accumulate
on saw or inside
cabinet.
Frequently
vacuum
or blow out any sawdust
that may
accumulate
within
cabinet.
Be certain
motor and internal
mechanisms
are clean and
are frequently
vacuumed
or blown
free of any dirt.
For motor
maintenance,
follow
instructions
provided
with
motor.
LUBRICATION
All bearings
on the arbor
are shielded
ball bearings.
These
bearings
are permanently
lubricated
at the factory.
As needed,
clean the grease
off the rack and worm
gears
of height
and tilt mechanism.
Lubricate
rack and gears
with a medium
viscosity
machine
oil.
Be sure to lubricate
trunnion
ways and all bushings.
Occasionally
oil all other bearing
points,
including
blade
guard
assembly,
miter
gauge
and rip fence.
For motor
lubrication,
follow
instructions
provided
with the
motor.
SERVICE
Replace
belts and worn
parts
as needed.
If power
cords
are worn,
cut, or damaged
in any way, have them
replaced
immediately.
Make sure teeth
of antikickback
pawls
are always
sharp.
Sharpen
dull teeth
using a few light strokes
of a smooth
cut flat file.
Service
motor according
to the instructions
provided.
The
motor
should
be serviced
only by a qualified
electrician.
