ADJUSTING
BLADE
GUARD
Refer to Figures
8 and 9, pages
20 and 22.
NOTE:
Spreader
must be parallel
to saw blade and in middle
of cut (kerf) made
by saw blade. In short,
spreader
must
always
be in exact plane
as saw blade.
If not, it will interfere
with existing
workpiece
in addition
to causing
poor and unsafe
guard operation.
Raise
blade to full height.
Adjust
tilt angle
of blade to 90 °.
Use a hand square
to be certain
blade
is perpendicular
to
table. Lock tilt angle
at 90 ° with tilt handwheel
locking
knob
(Fig. 9, No. 23). if tilt angle
will not go to 90 °, an
adjustment
to the 90 ° stop is necessary.
(See Operation,
page
10, 90 ° Stop Adjustment.)
When
adjusting
spreader,
use a straightedge
lengthwise
along
blade to be certain
spreader
is trailing
in middle
of
kerf (cut). In addition
use a 90 ° hand square
to make sure
spreader
is perpendicular
to the table, as is the blade.
Align
front of spreader
with blade. If necessary,
adjust
front
support
bracket.
In order
to adjust
support
bracket,
it may
be necessary
to lower saw blade. To adjust,
loosen
socket
head
bolts (Fig. 8, No. 23). When
completed,
secure
sock-
et head bolts tightly.
To adjust
the height
of the front of the spreader,
loosen
front support
bracket
hex head
bolt and flat washer
and
position
spreader
up or down. Lock spreader
into position
by tightening
hex head
bolt and flat washer.
Height
of
spreader
should
be adjusted
to allow
blade guard
to con-
tact table.
Align
rear of spreader.
Rear of spreader
can be adjusted
by upper rear spreader
support.
To adjust,
loosen
hex
head
bolt and flat washer
(Fig. 8, Nos. 37 and 26). Slot will
allow
upper rear spreader
support
adjustment
left or right.
Tighten
hex head
bolt and flat washer.
After spreader
is
lined up in middle
of kerf, tighten
guard support
rod (Fig.
8, No. 36) with hex nut and lock washer
(Fig. 8, Nos. 29
and 30). Tighten
securely.
NOTE:
It may be necessary
to lower or remove
blade to tight-
en hex nut and lock washer.
Adjust
angle of spreader
to table. Loosen
hex head
bolt
and lock washer
(Fig. 8, Ref. Nos. 37 and 38). Rotate
lower rear support
spreader
(Fig. 8, No. 39) until spreader
is perpendicular
to table. Tighten
hex head bolt and lock
washer.
NOTE:
It may be necessary
to also loosen
hex head
bolt and
fiat washer
on front of support
bracket.
Adjust
height
so top
edge
is parallel.
Lock into position.
Tighten
both front and rear
bolts and washers
(Figure
8, Nos. 27 and 26).
Blade guard
is now assembled
and adjusted.
Spreader
should
be parallel
with saw blade
and in middle
of kerf. if
this is not true, repeat
all adjustment
steps. Before
operat-
ing saw, recheck
all blade
guard
fasteners
to be certain
all
are securely
tightened.
IMPORTANT:
Before
operating
saw, be certain
blade
guard
and antikickback
pawls
automatically
return
to table
surface.

WIRE
TAB LE SAW
WARNING:
Be certain
switch
is in OFF position.
Disconnect
the source
of all power.
Keep circuit
breaker
open
or in OFF
position.
The Craftsman
10" and 12" saws are designed
to be used
with 230V-single-phase-power.
ELECTRICAL
CONNECTIONS
WARNING:
Make sure
unit is off and disconnected
from
power
source
before
inspecting
any wiring.
The motor
is installed
and the wiring
connected
as illustrated
in the wiring
schematic
(see Figure
4).
When
wiring
the saw to the source,
install
a fused
safety
disconnect
switch
between
the saw and the circuit
break-
er. Be certain
the safety disconnect
switch
is capable
of
being
locked
in the OFF position.
The safety disconnect
switch
is a safety precaution
which
allows
the operator
to
lock the saw OFF so it is unable
to receive
power. This
feature
is intended
to prevent
accidental
start-up
when
maintaining
or servicing
saw. In addition,
it is intended
to
prevent
unauthorized
and possible
hazardous
use by oth-
ers. A key lock switch
is provided
on the tool for the same
reasons.
The safety disconnect
switch
is fused.
Protect
the saw with
a 20 amp time-delay
fuse or 20 amp
manual
reset circuit
breaker.
Do not use fuses
or breakers
with a greater
amperage
rating.
Wire
the saw to a breaker
box or fuse
box with adequate
capacity
wire to accommodate
the stationary
saw's
volt-
age and amp load.
IMPORTANT:
Be certain
saw is wired to a circuit
protected
by
a 20 amp
breaker
or fuse.
