Keep blade clean and sharp. Un-  
sharpened or improperly set blades  
produce narrow kerf causing excessive  
friction, blade binding and KICKBACK.  
Any blade with a small set, even though  
sharp, may be likely to kick back. A dull  
blade encourages the operator to force  
the saw, causing reduced control and  
blade binding. The excessive friction  
generated can cause the blade to warp  
or bind. Use only blades which are rec-  
ommended for use with your tool. Do not  
use blades with incorrect size or shaped  
mounting holes. Never use defective  
or incorrect blade washers or bolts. Be  
sure the blade bolt is tight. Select the  
proper blade for the application. Blade  
speed specications must be at least as  
high as nameplate RPM.  
ers out of the kick back path. Repetitive  
cuts which lull the operator into careless  
movements can also cause kick back.A  
brief "stretch" may be all that is neces-  
sary to avoid a problem.  
Maintain labels and nameplates.  
8. Never cut a workpieces with a width  
smaller than that of the saw carriage.  
Proper support for the workpiece must  
be maintained to insure safety. When  
the carriage moves over the workpiece,  
it would be impossible to safely support  
the workpiece for the cut. Use a tool  
better suited for these applications.  
These carry important information.

When blade is binding, or when inter-  
rupting a cut for any reason, turn the  
switch off and hold the saw motion-  
less in the material until the blade  
comes to a complete stop. Never  
attempt to remove the saw from the  
work or pull the saw backward while  
the blade is in motion or KICKBACK  
may occur. Investigate and take cor-  
rective actions to eliminate the cause  
of blade binding.  
WARNING! Some dust created by  
power sanding, sawing, grinding, drill-  
ing, and other construction activities  
contains chemicals known to cause  
cancer, birth defects or other reproduc-  
tive harm. Some examples of these  
chemicals are:  
9. Always wait for blade to stop com-  
pletely before changing positions.  
Unplug the tool before transporting or  
moving it.  
lead from lead-based paint  
10. Do not place hands on or under saw  
carriage or in the path of the blade.  
Do not attempt to retrieve a piece of  
material that is cut off while the blade is  
crystalline silica from bricks and cement  
and other masonry products, and  
To remove the blade after stopping  
mid-cut, allow the blade to stop and  
then back up the saw (cross-cutting) or  
board (rip-cutting).  
arsenic and chromium from chemically-  
treated lumber.  
Do not force tool. Let the saw do the  
work. A saw is more readily controlled  
and will do a better job when used in the  
manner for which it was designed.  
11. Make workshop child proof with pad-  
When restarting a saw in the work-  
piece, center the saw blade in the  
kerf and check that saw teeth are  
not engaged into the material. If  
saw blade is binding, it may walk up or  
KICKBACK from the workpiece as the  
saw is restarted.  
Your risk from these exposures varies,  
depending on how often you do this  
type of work. To reduce your exposure  
to these chemicals: work in a well ven-  
tilated area, and work with approved  
safety equipment, such as those dust  
masks that are specically designed to  
lter out microscopic particles.  
locks, master switches, or by removing  
starter keys. See "Lock-Off Feature".  
Stay alert. Watch what you are doing  
and use common sense. Do not allow  
yourself to be distracted. Do not oper-  
ate tool when tired, under the inuence  
of drugs or alcohol. Hold the tool or  
material rmly and exercise control at  
all times. Position yourself and co-work-  
2. Replace guards after blade change.  
Maintain guards in working order.  
13. Direction of feed. Feed work into a  
blade or cutter against the direction of  
rotation of the blade or cutter only.  
Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and  
remove all nails before cutting.  
Handle the counterbalance with care.  
The cable is under tension. Always as-  
semble cable to saw carriage before  
removing cable clip. Do not pull on cable  
by hand or attempt to disassemble or  
repair the counterbalance.  
14. Causes and Operator Prevention of  
KICKBACK is a sudden reaction to  
a pinched, bound or misaligned saw  
blade, causing an uncontrolled saw to  
lift up and out of the workpiece toward  
the operator.  
No Load Revolutions  
per Minute (RPM)  
Double Insulated  
Do not defeat the guards or operate  
the tool without the guards in place.  
When the blade is pinched or bound  
tightly by the kerf closing down, the  
blade stalls and the motor reaction  
drives the unit rapidly back toward the  
operator when cross-cutting and throws  
out the workpiece if ripping.  
Canadian Standards  
Do not use push sticks. Push sticks or  
the workpiece can kick back, cause the  
blade to pinch, or become caught in the  
blade and be thrown from the tool.  
Laboratories, Inc.  
Do not place hands on or under saw  
carriage or in the path of the blade.  
Cross-cutting (vertical cutting) must  
always be done from the top down.  
Saw carriage should be raised to the  
uppermost position on the guide tubes  
and locked into position with the carriage  
lock whenever the tool is not in use. See  
Do not expose to rain or use in  
damp locations.  
Volts Alternating  
If the blade becomes twisted or mis-  
aligned in the cut, the teeth at the back  
edge of the blade can dig into the top  
surface of the wood causing the blade  
to climb out of the kerf and jump back  
toward operator.  
Ripping (horizontal cutting) must rip-  
ping must always be done by moving  
the workpiece through the saw in the  
direction of the arrow on the saw mo-  
tor. Saw carriage should be raised to the  
top of the guide tubes and locked into  
position with the carriage lock whenever  
tool is not in use. See "Rip Cutting".  
KICKBACK is the result of tool mis-  
use and/or incorrect operating pro-  
cedures or conditions and can be  
avoided by taking proper precautions as
