POWER CONNECTIONS

A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wireextension cords which have 3- prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the machine to the power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the machine.

DO NOT EXPOSE THE MACHINE TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP LOCATIONS.

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS

Your machine is wired for 120 volts, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK.

1. All grounded, cord-connectedmachines:

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect theequipment-groundingconductor to a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.

Use only 3-wireextension cords that have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching3-conductorreceptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.

Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

2. Grounded, cord-connectedmachines intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150 volts:

If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a matching2-conductorreceptacle as shown in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. Thegreen-coloredrigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal screw.

NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.

IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THE R E C E P TA C L E I N Q U E S T I O N I S P R O P E R LY GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE RECEPTACLE.

2.This machine is equipped with positive stops at the 0° cut-offposition and at the 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, and 45° left and right positions.

3.The center line (C) Fig. 14 on the cursor indicates the actual angle of cut. Each scale line (B) represents 1°. When the center line (C) is moved from one line to the next on the scale, the angle of the cut is changed by 1°.

4.The pointer is provided with two additional lines (D) and (E), Fig. 14. This allows movement of the control arm by exactly 1/2°. For example, assume that the center line (C) is pointing to the 10° mark on the scale, as indicated, and the desired angle of cut is 1/2° to the right. Move the control arm until the right line (E) lines up with the next line on the scale. The angle of cut will then be changed 1/2° to the right. If you change the angle of cut 1/2° to the left, use the left line (D) in the same manner.

ADJUSTING LOWER BLADE GUARD

The 36-412incorporates an moveable lower blade guard (C) Fig. 36, and it also has a secondary blade guard (B) to cover the rear section of the blade. After an extended period of use, the moveable lower blade guard (C) Fig. 36 may not operate smoothly when the cuttinghead is lowered. This can be corrected by adjusting nut (D) until the lower blade guard (C) moves freely.

OVERTIGHTENING THE NUT COULD IMPAIR GUARD MOVEMENT.

NOTE: This unit has been designed with an articulating rear guard. Before contacting the workpiece, the rear guard will rotate upward to expose more of the blade as the cuttinghead is lowered.

DO NOT REMOVE ANY OF THE BLADE GUARDS. MAKE SURE THAT ALL GUARDS ARE IN PLACE AND FUNCTIONING PROPERLY BEFORE OPERATING THE SAW. MAKE SURE THAT THE FENCES ARE CLEAR OF THE GUARD AND BLADE BEFORE OPERATING THE SAW.

MACHINE USE

TYPICAL OPERATIONS AND HELPFUL HINTS

Keep your hands out of the hazard zone while operating the saw. If the size of the workpiece would cause your hand to be inside the table hazard zone (see section “TABLE HAZARD ZONE” SEE FIG. 21), use a clamp to secure the workpiece.

1.Before cutting, make certain that the cutting arm and table area are at their correct settings and firmly locked in place.

2.Before cutting, determine that the workpiece is the right size for the saw.

3.Place the workpiece on the table and hold or clamp it firmly against the fence.

4.For best results, cut at a slow, even cutting rate.

5.Never attempt freehand cutting (cutting a workpiece that is not held firmly against the fence and table).

AUXILIARY WOOD FENCE

When performing multiple or repetitivecut-offoperations that result in smallcut-offpieces (one inch or less), the saw blade can catch thecut-offpieces and project them out of the machine or into the blade guard and housing, possibly causing damage and/or injury. In order to limit the possibility of personal injury or blade guard damage, mount an auxiliary wood fence to your saw.

Holes are provided in the fence to attach an auxiliary fence (A) and (B) (Fig. 37). This auxiliary fence is constructed of straight wood approximately 1/2” thick. Both sides A and B should be approximately 5.25" high by 11.5 inches long.

NOTE: The auxiliary fence (A) is usedonly with the saw blade in the 0° bevel position (90°) to the table. The auxiliary fence must be removed for all bevel cuts (blade tilted).

MAKE SURE THAT THE FENCES ARE CLEAR OF THE GUARD AND BLADE BEFORE OPERATING SAW.

AUXILIARY FENCE SPACER

This machine is supplied with new design features that increase cutting capacity. The unit can (1) crosscut 4" x 6" dimensional lumber at 0° miter and 0° bevel, (2) miter left and right 45° 4" x 4" dimensional lumber, and (3) bevel right 45° 2" x 8" dimensional lumber with a user provided spacer (A) Fig. 38.

NOTE: The spacer can be made from a 2" x 4" or any other 2" material as shown in Fig. 38.

CUTTING ALUMINUM

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY, USE THE PROPER BLADE WHEN CUTTING THIS TYPE OF MATERIAL.

Aluminum extrusions (aluminum screens and storm windows) can easily be cut with your miter saw. When cutting aluminum extrusions, or other sections that can be cut with a saw blade and are within the capacity of the machine, position the material so that the blade is cutting through the smallest cross-section,as shown in Fig. 39. The wrong way to cut aluminum angles is illustrated in Fig. 40. Be sure to apply a stick wax (similar to Johnson’s stick wax #140) to the blade before cutting any aluminum stock. This stick wax is available at most industrial mill supply houses. The stick wax provides proper lubrication and keeps chips from adhering to the blade.

NEVER APPLY LUBRICANT TO THE BLADE WHILE THE SAW IS RUNNING.

CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL

1.Check the workpiece. If it is bowed, position the workpiece on the table as shown in Fig. 41.

2.When the workpiece is positioned the wrong way (Fig. 42), it will pinch the blade near the completion of the cut.

CORRECT

Fig. 41

CONSTRUCTING WORK SUPPORT EXTENSIONS

For support when cutting long pieces, construct a work support extension. Fig. 42A illustrates the miter saw mounted on two standard 2 x 4’s (A). Fasten the four mounting legs (two of which are shown at (B) Fig. 42A to the 2 x 4’s, using four screws (not supplied) through the four holes in the mounting legs. The length of the 2 x 4’s (A) can vary, depending on the workpiece.

NOTE: Make sure that the top of the support 2 x 4’s

(C) are level with the miter saw table.

This is critical because the distance from the top of the 2 x 4’s (A) to the miter saw table varies from saw to saw. In most cases, standard 2 x 4’s (C) can used. If these are too high, cut them to fit. If the 2 x 4’s are too low, use 2 x 6’s. If these are high, cut them to the correct height.

CUTTING CROWN MOULDING (USING BUILT-INSTOPS)

Crown moulding stops have been built in to the base to aid in holding the workpiece in position while cutting. This new design feature allows cutting crown moulding in either the flat or nested position and utilizes a stop and screw feature that can be quickly adjusted to accommodate several widths of crown moulding. The position of the stops can be adjusted by two methods. To adjust, turn knob (A) Fig. 43 until stop (B) is in the proper position to mount the crown moulding at the selected angle, or, squeeze the ears and depress the stop (A) Fig. 44 to disengage the stop (B) Fig. 43 from the screw. Then move the stop to the desired location and raise the stop until the ears snap in place (B) Fig. 45. Then if necessary turn knob(s) (A) Fig. 45 to fine adjust the stop. A recessed slot (D) Fig. 44 is provided for the user to add pencil markings to establish various quick reference stop positions.
