Instructions

  • Check the condition and location of the blade to assure it is correct for your cut, make sure the blade is clear.
  • To start the saw, first make sure the Start/Stop paddle is in the “OFF” position (i.e., pushed in) and then turn the main power switch to the “ON” position by flipping the toggle upward.
  • The saw control switch ( will start with green and blinking red) after which it will show a steady green light and red off indicating it is ok to start the motor.
  • To start the motor pull the start/stop paddle out. To stop the motor push the start/stop paddle in. The paddle is designed so that it can be pushed in by the operator's leg or knee in an emergency.
  • It is not necessary to turn off the main power switch after pushing in the Start/Stop paddle to turn off the motor. If you plan to make several cuts with the saw, you can leave the main power switch in the ON position between cuts to eliminate the delay due to the initialization routine. Once you have finished using the saw, turn the main power switch to OFF to reduce the likelihood of inadvertent start-up.

In Event of Emergency or Saw Safety Trip

  • Call 911 if you are hurt and do not move your work, we need to document any failure or accident, take pictures, call one of the wardens.
