10.Childproof workshop with padlocks, master switches or by removing switch keys.

11.Disconnect machine when cleaning, adjusting or servicing.

12.Do not force tool. The machine will do a safer and better job at the rate for which it was designed.

4

13.Use correct tool. Do not force machine or attachment to do a job for which it was not designed.

14.Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose clothing, neck ties, gloves, jewelry, etc.

15.Remove adjusting keys and wrenches before turning the machine on. Make this a habit!

16.Use proper extension cord. When using an extension cord, make sure it is in good condition. Use extension cords 100' or less in length that are rated Hard Service (grade S) or better, and that have a conductor size of 16 A.W.G. A drop in line voltage, loss of power and overheating can result when using an undersized cord. The extension cord must have a ground wire and ground plug pin, as well.

17.Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

18.Do not leave machine unattended—wait until it comes to a complete stop before leaving the area.

19.Perform machine maintenance and care. Follow lubrication and accessory attachment instructions in the manual.

20.Keep machine away from open flame. Operating machines near pilot lights and/or open flames creates a high risk if dust is dispersed in the area. Dust particles and an ignition source may cause an explosion. Do not operate the machine in high risk areas, including but not limited to, those mentioned above.

Additional Safety Instructions For Bandsaws

1.Do not operate bandsaw without wheel covers, pulley covers or blade guards in place.

2.Blade replacement, machine adjustments and maintenance are to be done with machine turned off and unplugged. Allow all moving parts to come to a complete stop before doing any of the above.

3.Never position fingers in line with blade. Use push sticks or other safety devices whenever possible.

4.Never back the workpiece from the blade while bandsaw blade is in motion. Turn off machine and wait for blade to come to a complete stop before backing workpiece out.

5.Unplug the machine and test blade tracking and tension before starting the machine. Blades that are loose or not tracking correctly can come off and cause serious personal injury.

6.Workpiece should be well supported leading into and out of the cut. The use of extension tables is recommended.

8.Use relief cuts to ease operations in tight corners and safely remove waste during long cuts.

9.Never reach under table while blade is in motion.

10.If at any time you are experiencing difficulties performing the intended operation, stop using the machine! Then contact our service department or ask a qualified expert how the operation should be performed.

11.Habits – good and bad – are hard to break. Develop good habits in your shop and safety will become second-nature to you.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

110V Operation

The Shop Fox® W1672 Bandsaw is prewired for 110 volt operation. The motor supplied with your new bandsaw is rated at 1 H.P. and will draw approximately 12 amps. When choosing an outlet for this machine, consider using one with a 15 amp circuit breaker or fuse. Keep in mind that a circuit being used by other machines or tools at the same time will add to the total load being applied to the circuit. Add up the load ratings of all machines on the circuit. If this number exceeds the rating of the circuit breaker or fuse, use a different circuit.

Extension Cords

When it is necessary to use an extension cord, use the following guidelines:

•Use cords rated for Hard Service •Never exceed a length of 100 feet •Use cords with 14 ga. wire or bigger •Insure cord has a ground wire and pin •Do not use cords in need of repair

This equipment must be grounded. Verify that any existing electrical outlet and circuit you intend to plug into is actually grounded. If it is not, it will be necessary to run a separate 12 A.W.G. copper grounding wire from the outlet to a known ground. Under no circumstances should the grounding pin from any three-pronged plug be removed or serious injury may occur.

Figure 1A. Never remove the grounding pin!

Grounding

This machine must be grounded! See Figure 1B. The electrical cord supplied with the W1672 comes with a grounding pin. Do not remove it. If your outlet does not accommodate a ground pin, have it replaced by a qualified electrician or have an appropriate adapter installed. Please note: When using an adapter, the adapter must be grounded.

This equipment must be grounded. Verify that any existing electrical outlet and circuit you intend to plug into is actually grounded. If it is not, it will be necessary to run a separate 12 A.W.G. copper grounding wire from the outlet to a known ground. Under no circumstances should the grounding pin from any three-pronged plug be removed or serious injury may occur.

Figure 2. Typical 220V 3-prong plug and outlet.

220V Operation

The Shop Fox® W1672 14" Bandsaw can also be operated at 220 volts. To do this, consult with the wiring diagram in the back of this manual. Also, you will need a NEMA-style 6L-15A plug and outlet.

The motor supplied with your new bandsaw is rated at 1 H.P. and will draw approximately 6 amps during 220 volt operation. When choosing an outlet for this machine, consider using one with a 15 amp circuit breaker or fuse. Keep in mind that a circuit being used by other machines or tools at the same time will add to the total load being applied to the circuit. Add up the load ratings of all machines on the circuit. If this number exceeds the rating of the circuit breaker or fuse, use a different circuit.

Extension Cords

We do not recommend using an extension cord for 220V equipment. Instead, arrange the placement of your machinery and installed wiring to eliminate the need for extension cords. If you must use an extension cord, make sure it is rated Hard Service (grade S) or better. The extension cord must always contain a ground wire and plug pin. Always repair or replace extension cords when they become worn or damaged.

NOTICE

Never replace the circuit breaker with one rated at a higher amperage, or damage to the circuit may occur.

Grounding

This machine must be grounded! See Figure 2. The electrical cord supplied with the W1672 does not come with a 220 volt plug. Use a plug with a ground pin. If your outlet does not accommodate a ground pin, have it replaced by a qualified electrician or have an appropriate adapter installed and grounded properly. An adapter with a grounding wire does not guarantee machine will be grounded. Ground source must be verified.

While the main components of the Shop Fox® W1672 14" Bandsaw are assembled at the factory, some assembly is required. The following is the recommended sequence best suited for final assembly.

Stand

The W1672 Bandsaw stand (Figure 11) should be placed on a hard, flat floor. There should be enough area surrounding the bandsaw to allow proper working clearances. Make sure to place the stand so the cabinet door is in front.

With the door open, insert the 516"-18 x 1" knob into the door of the stand. Thread the 516" lock nut onto the knob. Leave enough play so you can still rotate the knob to tighten/untighten the door to the stand body.

11

Bandsaw Body

The bandsaw body rep-

resents a heavy load.

Seek assistance before beginning this step.

1.Seek assistance and place the bandsaw body next to the stand. Rotate the bandsaw body so the access door on the bandsaw body is facing the same way as the cabinet door.

2.For safety, remove the bandsaw blade. To do this, open the upper and lower doors on the bandsaw body. Lift the tensioning handle up and carefully remove blade. See Figure 12. If the blade is hard to remove with the tensioning handle up, rotate the handle counterclockwise to release the pressure. See Blade Changes section for more details.

3.Lift the bandsaw body with the help of an assistant. The foot of the bandsaw body will fit into the pocket in the top of the stand.

Do Not lift from the foot of bandsaw body. Your fingers would be at risk of a pinch injury should the bandsaw be placed in this way.

4.Secure the bandsaw body as in Figure 13 with the (4) 38"-16 x 2" carriage bolts, 38" hex nut and flat washers provided.

Figure 12. Lifting tensioning handle.

Mounting Motor

1.Make sure the key is in place in the keyway on the motor shaft. Align the keyway and slide the motor pulley onto the motor shaft as far as it will go. Figure 14.

2.Align pulley with the hole in the back of the bandsaw body. Slide the motor until mounting holes align with those in top of the stand.

Figure 15.

3.Secure the motor with the (4) 516"-18 x 1" carriage bolts, 516" hex nuts, lock washers and flat washers provided.

4.Line the motor pulley up with the lower wheel pulley and tighten the setscrew with the Allen® wrench provided.

Quick-Connect Cord

To eliminate troublesome wiring, the motor for your bandsaw has a quick-connect cord that leads from the motor to the switch. The receptacle end of this cord comes out of the bandsaw body near the motor and the plug end of the cord is already attached to the motor.

1.Locate the two plug ends and connect them together as shown in Figure 16.

2.Do Not become confused with the switch- to-power cord. It will not fit in the quickconnect receptacle. Do Not plug the switch- to-power cord into the power source at this time.

Do not rely on quick connect cord when making adjustments to bandsaw. Always unplug directly at the power source.
