To avoid shock, burns, or lacera-
tions from accidental start up of
saw, turn power switch off and un-
plug saw before doing maintenance
or servicing saw.
When new, the saw requires no lubrica-
tion. The saw has been partially aligned
and all bearings are lubricated and
sealed for life. Ill time, in order to keep
the saw in good working order, it will be
necessary to clean, lubricate and realign.
Make sure the teeth of the antikickback
pawls are always sharp. If they become
dull they must be replaced. To replace:
1.Use v2" wrench or socket to remove
5/lg' hex nut and old pawls.
2. Assemble new antikickback pawls
and spreader to bar.
3. Align spreader to blade according to
instructions in Alignment and Adjust-
Periodically remove any heavy build-up
of sawdust that may accumulate on the
saw. The absorbing tendency of sawdust
will draw lubricants away from the areas
where they are needed. Wipe the car-
riage bearings and track surfaces with a
dry or lightly oiled cloth.
To avoid motor damage due to sawdust
build-up, which interferes with normal
motor ventilation, blow out or vacuum
the motor often.
Do not lubricate motor bearings. Motor
bearings are sealed and do not need
You can lubricate other points if neces-
sary, but only when sticking or binding
Adjustments for Wear
The bevel lock needs adjustment if the
motor can be moved by hand when the
bevel lock is locked. To make adjust-
1. Use v8"hex wrench to loosen screw
under right comer (pivot point) of bevel
lock just enough to allow bevel lock
lever to drop down. (See figure 2,
2. Use bevel lock lever as wrench to in-
crease locking characteristics.
3. Test lock for desired locked/unlocked
condition. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
4. Tighten screw.
The swivel lock is a friction lock that
prevents play between the yoke and car-
riage (#41 and #12, figure 2, Repair
Parts). It needs adjustment if the lock
handle has to be moved more than 90°
to lock. To make adjustment:
1. Use 1s/if' wrench to tighten nut (#1,
figure 2, Repair Parts).
2. Test lock, and repeat step 1 as needed.
