9.REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING.

Make sure that the switch is in the “OFF” position before plugging in the power cord. In the event of a power failure, move the switch to the “OFF” position. An accidental start-upcan cause injury.

10.USE THE GUARDS. Check to see that all guards are in place, secured, and working correctly to reduce the risk of injury.

11.REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES BEFORE STARTING THE MACHINE. Tools, scrap pieces, and other debris can be thrown at high speed, causing injury.

12.USE THE RIGHT MACHINE. Don’t force a machine or an attachment to do a job for which it was not designed. Damage to the machine and/or injury may result.

13.USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of accessories and attachments not recommended by

Delta may cause damage to the machine or injury to the user.

14.USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. See the Extension Cord Chart for the correct size depending on the cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

15.SECURE THE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold the workpiece when practical. Loss of control of a workpiece can cause injury.

16.FEED THE WORKPIECE AGAINST THE DIRECTION OF THE ROTATION OF THE BLADE, CUTTER, OR ABRASIVE SURFACE. Feeding it from the other direction will cause the workpiece to be thrown out at high speed.

17.DON’T FORCE THE WORKPIECE ON THE MACHINE.

Damage to the machine and/or injury may result.

18.DON’T OVERREACH. Loss of balance can make you fall into a working machine, causing injury.

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES FOR

TABLE SAWS

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY.

1. DO NOT OPERATE THIS MACHINEuntil it is assembledand installedaccording to the instructions.

2.OBTAIN ADVICE FROM YOUR SUPERVISOR, instructor, or another qualified person if you are not familiar with the operation of this machine.

3.FOLLOW ALL WIRING CODES and recommended electrical connections.

4.USE THE GUARDS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. Check to see that they are in place, secured, and working correctly.

5.KICKBACK IS THE NATURAL TENDENCY OF THE WORKPIECE TO BE THROWN BACK AT THE OPERATOR when the workpiece initially contacts the blade or if the workpiece pinches the blade. Kickback is dangerous and can result in serious injury.

AVOID KICKBACK by:

A.keeping blade sharp and free of rust and pitch.

B.keeping rip fence parallel to the saw blade.

C.using saw blade guard and spreader for every possible operation, including all through sawing.

D.pushing the workpiece past the saw blade prior to release.

E.never ripping a workpiece that is twisted or warped, or does not have a straight edge to guide along the fence.

F.using featherboards when the anti-kickbackdevice cannot be used.

G.never sawing a large workpiece that cannot be controlled.

H.never using the fence as a guide when crosscutting.

I.never sawing a workpiece with loose knots or other flaws.

6.ALWAYS USE GUARDS, SPLITTER, AND ANTIKICKBACK FINGERS whenever possible.

7.REMOVE CUT-OFFPIECES AND SCRAPSfrom the table before starting the saw. The vibration of the machine may cause them to move into the saw blade and be thrown out. After cutting, turn the machine off. After the blade has come to a complete stop, remove all debris.

8.NEVER START THE MACHINE with the workpiece against the blade.

9.NEVER run the workpiece between the fence and a moulding cutterhead.

10.CUTTING THE WORKPIECE WITHOUT THE USE OF A FENCE OR MITER GAUGE IS KNOWN AS “FREEHAND” CUTTING. NEVER perform “free-hand” operations. Use either the fence or miter gauge to position and guide the workpiece.

11.HOLD THE WORKPIECE FIRMLY against the miter gauge or fence.

12.CUTTING COMPLETELY THROUGH THE WORKPIECE IS KNOWN AS “THROUGH-SAWING”.

Ripping and cross-cuttingarethrough-sawingoperations. Cutting with the grain (or down the length of the workpiece) is ripping. Cutting across the grain (or across the workpiece) iscross-cutting.Use a fence or fence system for ripping. DO NOT use a fence or fence system forcross-cutting.Instead, use a miter gauge.USE PUSH STICK(S) for ripping a narrow workpiece.

13.AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause a hand to move into the blade.

14.KEEP ARMS, HANDS, AND FINGERS away from the blade.

15.NEVER have any part of your body in line with the path of the saw blade.

16.NEVER REACH AROUND or over the saw blade.

17.NEVER attempt to free a stalled saw blade without first turning the machine “OFF”.

18.PROPERLY SUPPORT LONG OR WIDE workpieces.

19.NEVER PERFORM LAYOUT, assembly orset-upwork on the table/work area when the machine is running.

20.TURN THE MACHINE “OFF” AND DISCONNECT THE MACHINE from the power source before installing or removing accessories, before adjusting or changing set-ups, or when making repairs.

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 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. (See “THREE PHASE OPERATION” and “LVC MAGNETIC MOTOR CONTROL” sections for more information on power connections.)

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

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS

All Unisaw motors are rated for 60 HZ alternating current, but voltage and horsepower varies according to model. Check the plate on the motor for the specifications.

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. Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

2. Grounded, cord-connectedmachines intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating between 150 - 250 volts, inclusive:

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. Make sure the machine is connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter is available or should be used with this machine. If the machine must be re-connectedfor use on a different type of electric circuit, the reconnection should be made by qualified service personnel; and afterre-connection,the machine should comply with all local codes and ordinances.

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

3. Permanently connected machines:

If the machine is intended to be permanently connected, all wiring mentioned below must be done by a qualified electrician and conform to the National Electric Code and all local codes and ordinances.

*THREE PHASE OPERATION: Three phase machines are not supplied with a power cord and must be permanently connected to a building’s electrical system. Extension cords can’t be used with a three phase machine.

*LVC MAGNETIC MOTOR CONTROL: If you purchased a machine that has a Low Voltage Magnetic Motor Control System, refer to its instruction manual for installation guidance. Some machines with LVC controllers must be permanently connected to the building’s electrical system. Some are fitted with power cords and can be plugged into the appropriate outlets.

EXTENSION CORDS

Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a3-wireextension cord which has a3-pronggrounding type plug and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the machine. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig.D-1shows the correct gauge to use depending on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

NOTE: CHECK TO SEE WHAT TYPE OF STARTER BOX WAS SHIPPED WITH YOUR SAW (GPE OR LVC). A GPE STARTER HAS ROUND “ON” AND “OFF” BUTTONS. A LVC STARTER HAS RECTANGLE “ON” AND “OFF” BUTTONS.

NOTE FOR GPE STARTER BOX: If your Unisaw was shipped with an GPE starter box, the GPE “ON/OFF” switch must be removed from the left side of the Unisaw. When assembling the left extension wing, do not install the front screw and washer at this time, it will be installed when assembling the on/off switch.

NOTE FOR LVC STARTER BOX: If your Unisaw was shipped with an LVC starter box, the LVC “ON/OFF” switch must be removed from the left side of the Unisaw. Save the hardware that attached the LVC “ON/OFF” switch to the Unisaw because it will be used tore-attachthe “ON/OFF” switch to the left extension wing in the section “ASSEMBLING LVC ON/OFF SWITCH.”

Assemble left extension wing (A) Fig. 5 to the saw table. Align the three holes in the extension wing with the three holes in the side of the saw table. Place a 7/16" flat washer on a 7/16-20x1-1/4”hex head screw. Insert the screw through the hole in the extension wing and thread the screw into the tapped hole in the side of the table. Repeat this process for the two remaining holes in the extension wing and saw table.NOTE: TIGHTEN
