Featherboards
are used to keep the work in contact
with the rip
fence or table during
the cutting operation.
Use of featherboards
can help to prevent kickbacks
and binding.
Featherboards
should
be used for all "non thru-sawing"
operations.

Never reach
in back of the cutting
tool with either
hand to
hold down or support
the workpiece,
remove
wood
scraps,
or for any other reason.
Avoid
awkward
operations
and
hand
positions
where
a sudden
slip could cause fingers
or
hand
to move into a saw blade
or other cutting
tool.
Do not perform
layout,
assembly,
or setup work on the
table while the cutting
tool is rotating.
Do not perform
any operation
freehand--always
use either
rip fence
or miter gauge
to position
and guide the work.
Never use the rip fence when cross-cutting
or the miter gauge
when ripping. Do not use rip fence as a length stop. Never
hold onto or touch free-end
of workpiece
or a free-piece
that
is cut off, while power is ON and/or saw blade is rotating.

Shut the saw OFF and disconnect
power
source
when
removing
the table insert,
changing
the cutting
tool,
removing
or replacing
the blade
guard,
or making
adjust-
ments.
To prevent
unauthorized
use, lock the start
switch
using
provided
padlock.
Provide
adequate
support
to the rear and sides
of the saw
table for wide or long workpieces.
Plastic
and composition
materials
(like hardboard)
may be
cut on your saw. However,
since
these
are usually
quite
hard and slippery,
the antikickback
pawls
may not stop a
kickback.
Therefore,
be especially
attentive
to following
proper
setup
and cutting
procedures
for ripping.
Do not
stand,
or permit
anyone
else to stand,
in line with a poten-
tial kickback.
If you stall or jam the saw blade
in the workpiece,
turn saw
OFF and remove
the workpiece
from the saw blade.
Check
to see if the saw blade is parallel
to the miter
gauge
grooves
and if the spreader
is in proper
alignment
with the saw blade.
If ripping
at the time, check
to see if
the rip fence
is parallel
with the saw blade. Readjust
as
required.
Do not remove
small
pieces
of cutoff
material
that may
become
trapped
inside
the blade guard
while the saw is
running.
This could
endanger
your
hands
or cause
kick-
back. Turn saw OFF and wait until blade stops.
Use extra
care when
ripping
wood with twisted
grain or
wood that is twisted
or bowed--it
may rock on table and
pinch saw blade.
KNOWYOUR
CUTTING
TOOLS
Dull, gummy,
improperly
sharpened
or set cutting
tools can
cause
material
to stick, jam,
stall saw, or kickback
at oper-
ator. Minimize
potential
injury by proper
care and machine
maintenance.
WARNING:
Never attempt
to free a stalled
saw blade with-
out first turning
saw OFR
Never use grinding
wheels,
abrasive
cutoff wheels,
friction
wheels
(metal
slitting
blades),wire
wheels
or buffing
wheels.
USE
ONLY
ACCESSORIES
DESIGNED
FOR
SAW
Crosscutting
operations
are worked
more conveniently
and
with greater
safety
if an auxiliary
wood facing
is attached
to miter gauge
using holes
provided.
However,
facing
must
not interfere
with proper
functioning
of saw blade guard.
Make sure the top of the arbor or cutting
tool rotates
toward
you when
standing
in normal
operating
position.
Also
make sure the cutting
tool, blade flange
and arbor
nut are installed
properly.
Keep the cutting
tool as low as
possible
for the operation
being
performed.
Keep all
guards
in place whenever
possible.
Do not use any blade or other cutting
tool marked
for oper-
ating speed
less than 4000
RPM
Never
use a cutting
tool
larger
in diameter
than
diameter
for which
saw was
designed.
For greatest
safety and efficiency
when
ripping,
use maximum
diameter
blade for which
saw is designed,
since
under these
conditions
spreader
is nearest
the
blade.
Adjust
table
inserts
flush with table top. Never operate
saw
unless
proper
insert
is installed.
Never feed material
into the cutting
tool from the rear of
the saw. An accident
and serious
injury could
result.
