M O TOR

Many Porter-Cabletools will operate on either D.C., or single phase 25 to 60 cycle A.C. current and voltage within plus or minus 5 percent of that shown on the specification plate on the tool. Several models, however, are designed for A.C. current only. Refer to the specification plate on your tool for proper voltage and current rating.

5

CAUTION: Do not operate your tool on a current on which the voltage is not within correct limits. Do not operate tools rated A.C. only on D.C. current. To do so may seriously damage the tool.

EXTENSION CORD SELECTION

If an extension cord is used, make sure the conductor size is large enough to prevent excessive voltage drop which will cause loss of power and possible motor damage. A table of recommended extension cord sizes will be found in this section. This table is based on limiting line voltage drop to 5 volts (10 volts for 230 volts) at 150% of rated amperes.

If an extension cord is to be used outdoors it must be marked with the suffix W-Afollowing the cord type designation. For exampleSJTW-Ato indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.

RECOMMENDED EXTENSION CORD SIZES FOR USE WITH PORTABLE ELECTRIC TOOLS

USING THE ROUTER/SHAPER

WARNING: Figures 17 and 20 through 27 show machine with cutter guards removed for clarity. NEVER OPERATE Router/Shaper without guards in place.

IMPORTANT: Before using your machine, consider the kind and total amount of rnaterial to be removed. Depending on the material, it may be necessary to make more than one cut to avoid overloading the motor. Before beginning the cut on the actual workpiece, it is advisable to make a sample cut on a piece of scrap lumber. This will show exactly how the cut will look as well as enable you to check dimensions.

The cutter rotates in a counterclockwise direction (viewing from above). Always feed work against the cutter rotation as shown in Fig. 17.

WARNING: Serious injury could result if workpiece is not always fed into the cutter against the direction of rotation.

The speed and depth of cut will depend largely on the type of material being worked upon. Keep the cutting pressure constant but do not crowd the machine so the motor speed slows excessively. It may be necessary on exceptionally hard woods or problem materials to make more than one pass at various settings to get the desired depth of cut.

When making cuts on all four edges of the workpiece, it is advisable to have the first cut on the end of the piece across the grain. Thus, if chipping of wood occurs at the end of a cut, it will be removed when making the next cut parallel with the grain.

SHAPING WITH PILOTED BITS

For shaping irregular edges a starting pin (A) Fig. 19, is furnished with your Router/Shaper for use with piloted router bits. Before installing the starting pin, remove: the retaining clips (A) Fig. 18, the front guard (B) Fig. 18, and the left hand (out-feed)fence assembly.

WARNING: Do not remove the right hand (in-feed)fence, top cutter guard, and rear cutter guard assembly. This assembly must remain in place and be adjusted so that the top guard completely covers the installed cutter.

Insert starting pin into either hole (C) or (D) Fig. 19. For majority of shaping operations the starting pin should be installed in hole (C) Fig. 19, as work must be fed against the direction of rotation of the cutter.

When using piloted bits only part of the edge of the workpiece can be cut since it is necessary to have the other part riding against the pilot.

WARNING: Never leave less than 1É 8" of the workpiece to ride against the pilot. Leaving less than1É 8" could cause the edge to splinter possibly resulting in serious injury.

Adjust the right hand (in-feed)fence and guard assembly so that the top guard completely covers the cutting area of the installed cutter.

Turn machine ON and allow it to come to full speed.

Place workpiece in first position (see Fig. 20). Using the starting pin as a support, swing workpiece into cutter (second position Fig. 20). When cut is started, press workpiece against piloted bit and swing workpiece away from starting pin. After the cut is started the piloted bit acts as a guide and not the starting pin. Feed workpiece against the direction of rotation of the cutter until complete edge is shaped. Slide workpiece away from cutter and turn machine OFF .

SHAPING WITH FENCE

When shaping straight edges, the fence can be used as a guide. The entire fence assembly or either the infeed or outfeed section can be adjusted independently as outlined under Adjusting the Fence .

For normal work where a portion of the original edge of the work is not altered by the cutter, both the front and rear fences are in a straight line, as shown in Fig. 21.

NOTE: Always check fences for correct alignment. The workpiece must slide along both fences smoothly. Always make a trial cut on scrap material to check your set-up.

END SHAPING

Sufficient support of the work piece must be maintained during all shaping operations. This exists when the workpiece is long enough to rest firmly against both the infeed and outfeed fences when you are halfway through the cut. When end shaping a workpiece that is not long enough to be sufficiently supported halfway through the cut, a miter gauge (available as an accessory) or back-upblock must be used (see Fig. 24 and 25).

WARNING: Any attempt to end shape a narrow workpiece without sufficient support could result in serious injury.

When using the miter gauge, the infeed fence assembly must be parallel to the miter slot. The outfeed fence must be adjusted so that it will not contact the workpiece after it has passed the cutter. Place workpiece firmly against the miter gauge and infeed fence and feed into cutter by pushing the miter gauge.

WARNING: Failure to hold workpiece firmly against miter gauge during cut could result in slippage of the workpiece causing serious injury and damage to the workpiece.

CROSS-GRAINSHAPING

When shaping across the grain, some splitting at the end of the cut may result. This can be minimized by feeding the workpiece slowly across the cutter at the end of the cut. When shaping all four sides of a workpiece, do the cross-graincuts first. Doingwith-the-graincuts last will usually remove the splintered end.

Fig. 26

15

SHAPING NARROW MATERIAL

When shaping narrow material (less than 3" wide) a support as shown in Fig. 27 must be clamped to your Router/Shaper and the workpiece fed under this support with a push stick. The push stick should be slightly narrower and thinner than the workpiece.

WARNING: Shaping narrow material without proper support and push stick could result in serious injury.
