MOUNTING
HOLES
See Figure 5.
Your compound miter saw should be permanently
mounted to a firm supporting surface such as a work-
bench. Four bolt holes have been provided in the saw
base for this purpose. Each of the four mounting holes
should be bolted securely using 3/8 in. machine bolts,
lock washers, and hex nuts (not included). Bolts should
be of sufficient length to accommodate
the saw base,
lock washers, hex nuts, and the thickness of the work-
bench.
Tighten all four bolts securely.
The hole pattern for mounting to a workbench
is shown in
figure 5. Carefully check the workbench after mounting to
make sure that no movement can occur during use. If any
tipping, sliding, or walking is noted, secure the workbench
to the floor before operating.

miter saw is securely mounted to a workbench
or an
approved workstand.

tool operation, always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields and a full face shield when
