SAFETY RULES FOR
MITER SAWS
POST THESE SAFETY RULES FOR REFERENCE.
Failure to follow these rules may result in serious injury.
1. DO NOT OPERATE THIS MACHINE until it is completely
assembled and installed according to the instructions. A machine
incorrectly assembled can cause serious injury.
2. OBTAIN ADVICE from your supervisor, instructor, or another
qualified person if you are not thoroughly familiar with the operation
of this machine. Knowledge is safety.
3. FOLLOW ALL WIRING CODES and recommended electrical
connections to prevent shock or electrocution.
4. DO NOT OPERATE ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE
DESIGNATED VOLTAGE for the saw.
5. SECURE THE MACHINE TO A STABLE SUPPORTING
SURFACE. Vibration can possibly cause the machine to slide,
walk, or tip over, causing serious injury.
6. USE ONLY CROSSCUT SAW BLADES. Use only zero-degree
or negative hook angles when using carbide-tipped blades. Do
not use blades with deep gullets. These can deflect and contact
the guard, and can cause damage to the machine and/or serious
injury.
7. USE ONLY BLADES OF THE CORRECT SIZE AND TYPE
specified for this tool to prevent damage to the machine and/or
serious injury.
8. MAKE CERTAIN BLADE ROTATES IN CORRECT DIRECTION
and that the teeth at the bottom of the blade point to the rear of
the saw.
9. USE BLADE GUARD AT ALL TIMES. Don’t spray any lubricants
or cleaners (particularly spray or aerosol) in the vicinity of the
plastic guard. The polycarbonate material sued in the guard is
subject to attack by certain chemicals.
10. USE A SHARP BLADE. Check the blade to see if it runs true and
is free from vibration. A dull blade or a vibrating blade can cause
damage to the machine and/or serious injury.
11. DON’T WEDGE ANYTHING AGAINST THE FAN to hold the
motor shaft.
12. DON’T USE ABRASIVE WHEELS. The excessive heat and
abrasive particles generated by them will damage the saw.
13. INSPECT BLADE FOR CRACKS or other damage prior to
operation. A cracked or damaged blade can come apart and
pieces can be thrown at high speeds, causing serious injury.
Replace cracked or damaged blades immediately.
14. CLEAN THE BLADE AND BLADE FLANGES prior to operation.
Cleaning the blade and flanges allows you to check for any
damage to the blade or flanges. A cracked or damaged blade or
flange can come apart and pieces can be thrown at high speeds,
causing serious injury.
15. ALWAYS USE THE KERF PLATE AND REPLACE THIS PLATE
WHEN DAMAGED. Small chip accumulation under the saw may
interfere with the saw blade or may cuase instability of workpiece
when cutting.
16. USE ONLY BLADE FLANGES specified for this tool to prevent
damage to the machine and/or serious injury.
17. CLEAR THE AREA OF FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS and/or gas prior
to operation. Sparks can occur that would ignite the liquids and
cause a fire or an explosion.
18. CLEAN THE MOTOR AIR SLOTS of chips and sawdust.
Clogged motor air slots can cause the machine to overheat,
damaging the machine and possibly causing a short which could
cause serious injury.
19. TIGHTEN THE TABLE CLAMP HANDLE and any other clamps
prior to operation. Loose clamps can cause parts or the workpiece
to be thrown at high speeds.
20. NEVER START THE TOOL with the blade against the workpiece.
The workpiece can be thrown, causing serious injury.
21. KEEP ARMS, HANDS, AND FINGERS away from the blade to
prevent severe cuts. Clamp all workpieces that would cause your
hand to be in the “Table Hazard Zone” (within the red lines).
22. DON’T PLACE HANDS IN THE BLADE AREA when the saw is
connected to a power source.
23. DON’T REACH UNDERNEATH THE SAW unless it is unplugged
or turned off. The saw blade is exposed on the underside of the
saw.
24. ALLOW THE MOTOR TO COME TO FULL SPEED prior to
starting cut. Starting the cut too soon can cause damage to the
machine or blade and/or serious injury.
25. NEVER REACH AROUND or behind the saw blade. A moving
blade can cause serious injury.
26. NEVER CUT FERROUS METALS or masonry. Either of these
can cause the carbide tips to fly off the blade at high speeds
causing serious injury.
27. NEVER CUT SMALL PIECES. Cutting small pieces can cause
your hand to move into the blade, resulting in serious injury.
28. NEVER LOCK THE SWITCH in the “ON” position. Setting up the
next cut could cause your hand to move into the blade, resulting
in severe injury.
29. NEVER APPLY LUBRICANT to a running blade. Applying
lubricant could cause your hand to move into the blade, resulting
in serious injury.
30. DO NOT PERFORM FREE-HAND OPERATIONS. Hold the
work firmly against the fence and table. Free-hand operations
on a miter saw could cause the workpiece to be thrown at high
speeds, causing serious injury. Use clamps to hold the work
when possible.
31. CUTTINGHEAD MUST RETURN QUICKLY TO THE
FULL UP POSITION. Failure to do so will not allow the
lower guard to operate properly and may result in personal
injury.
32. TURN OFF THE MACHINE and allow the blade to come to
a complete stop prior to cleaning the blade area or removing
debris in the path of the blade. A moving blade can cause serious
injury.
33. PROPERLY SUPPORT LONG OR WIDE WORK-PIECES.
Loss of control of the workpiece can cause injury.
34. NEVER PERFORM LAYOUT, ASSEMBLY, OR SET-UP WORK
on the table/work area when the machine is running. A sudden
slip could cause a hand to move into the blade. Severe injury can
result.
35. DON’T ALLOW ANYONE to stand behind the saw.
36. TURN THE MACHINE “OFF”, disconnect the machine from the
power source, and clean the table/work area before leaving the
machine. LOCK THE SWITCH IN THE “OFF” POSITION to
prevent unauthorized use. Someone else might accidentally start
the machine and cause injury to themselves.
37. BEFORE OPERATING THE SAW, check and securely lock the
bevel, miter, and sliding fence adjustments.
38. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION regarding the safe and proper
operation of power tools (i.e. a safety video) is available from
the Power Tool Institute, 1300 Sumner Avenue, Cleveland, OH
44115-2851 (www.powertoolinstitute.com). Information is also
available from the National Safety Council, 1121 Spring Lake
Drive, Itasca, IL 60143-3201. Please refer to the American
National Standards Institute ANSI 01.1 Safety Requirements
for Woodworking Machines and the U.S. Department of Labor
regulations.
