WORK CLAMP
See Figure 11,
The work clamp provides greater control by clamping the
workpiece to the fence or the saw table. It also prevents the
workpiece from creeping toward the saw blade. This is very
helpful when cutting compound miters.
Depending
on the cutting
operation
and the size of the
workpiece, it may be necessary to use a C-clamp instead
of the work clamp to secure the workpiece prior to making
the cut.
_
WARNING:
In some operations, the work clamp
assembly may interfere with the operation of the
blade guard assembly. Always make sure there is
no interference with the blade guard prior to begin-
ning any cutting operation to reduce the risk of
serious personal injury.
Follow these directions to install the work clamp:
Place the shaft of the work clamp in either hole on the
saw table base.
Rotate the knob on the work clamp to move it in or out
as needed.
_
WARNING:
When using any clamp with a stop
block, install the clamp on the same side as the stop
block. This will eliminate the possibility of trapping
the workpiece, resulting in the saw blade and
workpiece kicking up. Failure to heed this warning
can result in serious personal injury.

See Figures 12, 13, and 14.
A
WARNING:
A 10 in. blade is the maximum blade
capacity of your saw. Never use a blade that is too
thick to allow outer blade washer to engage with
the flats on the spindle. Larger blades will come in
contact with the blade guards, while thicker blades
will prevent the blade screw from securing the blade
on the spindle. Either of these situations could result
in a serious accident and can cause serious personal
injury.
Unplug your saw.
_hb WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result
in accidental starting causing possible serious
personal injury.
Loosen the phillips screw on the blade bolt cover until
blade bolt cover can be raised. See Figures 12 and 13.
Gently raise the lower blade guard bracket, releasing
lower blade guard from notch so that lower blade
guard and blade bolt cover can be rotated up and back
to expose the blade bolt. See Figures 12 and 13.
Depress the spindle lock button and rotate the blade
bolt until the spindle locks. See Figure 13.
Using the blade wrench provided, loosen and remove
the blade bolt.
NOTE: The blade bolt has left hand threads. Turn blade
bolt clockwise to loosen.
