Rip Cutting  
2. Select the saw height based on your  
workpiece, following the measure on  
the rip ruler.  
Making Cuts Less than 1"  
Lock-Off Feature  
A rip cut is a horizontal cut that can be done  
from the LEFT TO THE RIGHT or from the  
RIGHT TO THE LEFT, but the work piece  
must always be moved through the saw  
in the direction of the arrow on the saw  
When making cuts that are less than 1",  
the chatter guard (located inside the blade  
guard) must be on the workpiece and not on  
the cut-off piece. If the chatter guard is on the  
cut-off piece, it will jam on the workpiece and  
prevent the carriage from continuing through  
the cut. If the saw jams, turn the tool OFF  
and wait for the blade to stop. Then back the  
saw out of the cut.  
Unplug the tool before installing the padlock.  
There is a hole in the switch through which a  
padlock (not supplied with tool) will t to lock  
the tool when it is not in use. Use a padlock  
with a 1-1/2" shackle, 5/16" diameter (such  
as the Master Lock 1KALJ).  
3. Tighten the carriage lock securely.  
Plug in the tool.  
5. Start the motor and allow it to reach full  
speed before beginning the cut.  
MILWAUKEE recommends using the Hold  
Down Bar Kit for frequent cutting of workpiec-  
es thinner than 1/4" (see "Accessories").  
6. Place the workpiece on the rollers. Do  
not to drop the material; this may knock  
the rollers out of alignment or damage  
the rollers.  
The minimum length recommended for rip  
cuts is 2-1/2' (work supported by four roll-  
ers). The same size applies if you use the  
Midway Fence Kit.  
For easier cutting and best performance,  
MILWAUKEE recommends using the Exten-  
sion Kit when rip-cutting workpieces longer  
than 6' (see "Accessories"). Do not rip-cut  
workpieces that exceed 8'.  
To reduce the risk of injury and  
damage to the tool, 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.  
Lubricating Guide Tubes  
The saw carriage should raise itself from the  
bottom to the top of the guide tubes. How-  
ever, if the tubes become caked with dust  
or debris, the saw carriage may get stuck or  
it may not slide smoothly. Periodically clean  
the guide tubes with a damp cloth, following  
the directions under "Cleaning". Then, use a  
dry lubricant such as PTFE or spray silicone.  
Other lubricants will cause dust and debris  
to collect on the tubes, contaminating the  
tool or try to do any rewiring on the  
tool's electrical system. Contact a  
MILWAUKEE service facility for ALL  
When the motor has reached full speed,  
slowly move the workpiece through the  
saw in the direction of the feed arrow  
on the saw motor. Avoid placing your  
hands, clothing or body parts under the  
saw carriage. Do not look directly down  
the line of cut because dust and debris  
are generated during operation. Do not  
use push sticks.  
To reduce the risk of injury, ripping  
must always be done by moving  
the workpiece through the saw in  
the direction of the arrow on the  
saw motor.  
Maintaining Tools  
Keep your tool in good repair by adopting a  
regular maintenance program. Before use,  
examine the general condition of your tool.  
Inspect guards, switches, tool cord set and  
extension cord for damage. Check for loose  
screws, misalignment, binding of moving  
parts, improper mounting, broken parts and  
any other condition that may affect its safe  
operation. If abnormal noise or vibration oc-  
curs, turn the tool off immediately and have  
the problem corrected before further use.  
Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged  
tools “DO NOT USE” until repaired (see  
Fig. 15  
To reduce the risk of injury, electric  
shock and damage to the tool, never  
immerse your tool in liquid or allow a  
liquid to ow inside the tool.  
To reduce the risk of injury, always  
shield bystanders from the tool.  
Never look down the line of cut be-  
during operation.  
Clean dust and debris from vents. Keep  
the tool handles clean, dry and free of oil  
or grease. Use only mild soap and a damp  
cloth to clean your tool since certain cleaning  
agents and solvents are harmful to plastics  
and other insulated parts. Some of these  
include: gasoline, turpentine, lacquer thinner,  
paint thinner, chlorinated cleaning solvents,  
ammonia and household detergents con-  
taining ammonia. Never use ammable or  
combustible solvents around tools.  
Under normal conditions, relubrication is not  
necessary until the motor brushes need to  
be replaced. After six months to one year,  
depending on use, return your tool to the  
nearest MILWAUKEE service facility for the  
After the cut is completed, turn the tool  
off and wait for the blade to come to a  
complete stop.  
Rip ruler  
Pull the scrap material and the nished  
workpiece away from the tool.  
Select ripping from the left or right,  
based on preference. Rotate the saw  
motor to the ripping position (Fig. 15).  
To rotate the motor, pull out the indexing  
pins and rotate the saw motor. Lock the  
indexing pins into the preset holes in  
the saw carriage. The pins are spring-  
loaded and should snap into place.  
Be sure to shield bystanders from the  
0. Return the saw carriage to the upper-  
most position on the guide tubes.  
Brush inspection and replacement  
11. Tighten the carriage lock.  
Mechanical inspection and cleaning  
(gears, spindles, bearings, housing,  
NOTE: When done ripping, return the car-  
riage to the cross-cut position.  
If your tool is damaged, return the entire tool  
to the nearest service center.
