Things to Avoid
- Do not use faulty equipment. Immediately report suspect equipment.
- Never leave the machine running unattended.
- Do not exceed the maximum cut for the machine.
- Do not cut more than one workpiece at a time.
- Do not start the saw with the blade touching the workpiece. Allow the blade to reach full speed first.
- Do not cut branches, dowel, or wood with embedded nails or screws.
- Do not rip solid timber along the grain.
- Do not cut ferrous material.
- Never have your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to cut.
- Locate and ensure you are familiar with all machine operations and controls.
- Check for damaged parts. Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
- Check workspaces and walkways to ensure no slip/trip hazards are present.
- Ensure all guards are fitted, secure and functional. Do not operate if guards are missing or faulty.
- Remove adjusting keys and wrenches before turning the tool on.
- Ensure the work area is clean and uncluttered. Keep table and work area clear of all tools, off-cut timber and sawdust.
- Do not reach underneath the saw unless unplugged.
- Start the dust extraction unit before using the machine.
- Ensure all adjustments are secure before making a cut.
- Secure the workpiece with clamps and against the guard fences and support the workpiece on a stable platform. Do not use a length stop on the free scrap end of a clamped workpiece.
- Before turning on the saw, perform a dry run of the cutting operation, without the material in place, to ensure the saw is unimpeded through its full range of motion.
- Avoid reaching over the saw line. Do not cross arms when cutting.
- When pulling the saw down, keep other hand, especially the thumb, well clear of the line of cut.
- If workpiece is bowed or warped, clamp it to achieve the greatest stability toward the fence.
- Allow the blade to come to full speed before commencing a cut.
- After finishing the cut, release the switch, hold the saw arm down and wait for blade to stop before removing work or off-cut piece.
- Before making any adjustments, disconnect the plug from the power source and bring the machine to a complete standstill.
- Practice trigger safety by removing finger from trigger until ready to cut.
- Turn off the machine and allow the blade to come to a stop
- Unplug the miter saw
- Clean dust and debris with the Shop-Vac
