Operation
f Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug.
Transport and Working Position of the
Saw Blade
Transport Position
Turn the handwheel 12 in clockwise direc-
tion until the teeth of the saw blade 38 are
positioned below the saw table 11.
Working Position
Turn the handwheel 12 in anticlockwise di-
rection until the teeth of the saw blade 38
are positioned approx. 5 mm above the
workpiece.
Note: Take care that the blade guard is properly
positioned. When sawing, it must always face
against the workpiece.
Increasing the Size of the Saw Table
Long workpieces must be underlaid or support-
ed at their free end.
Table Extension/Table Width Enlargement
(see figure A)
To increase the saw table surface, the following
rails can be pulled out at the rear as well as on
the right-hand side of the power tool:
Table extension 2 (extends the saw table 11 to-
ward the rear by 215 mm)
and/or
Table width enlargement 9 (enlarges the saw
table 11 toward the right by 285 mm)
Grasp the requested rail centrally and from
below, and pull it out maximally to the stop.
To lock in position, tighten the correspond-
ing fastening knobs (23 or 26) against the
guide rods.
For heavy workpieces, it may be required to sup-
port the rails.
Sliding Table (see figure B)
With the sliding table 1, workpieces to a maxi-
mum width of 305 mm can be sawn.
At the same time, a higher precision is achieved
during sawing, especially in conjunction with
the angle stop 16. (see “Sawing Mitre Angles
with the Sliding Table”, page 49)
For this, tilt the locking lever 24 toward the
right.
In this manner, the sliding table can be
moved both toward the front as well as to-
ward the rear to the stop.
Adjusting the Cutting Angle
To ensure precise cuts, the basic adjustment of
the machine must be checked and adjusted as
necessary after intensive use (see “Checking
and Adjusting the Basic Adjustment”, page 49).
Adjusting Horizontal Mitre Angles
(Angle Stop) (see figure C)
The horizontal mitre angle can be set in the
range from 60° (left side) to 60° (right side).
Loosen the locking knob 54 in case it is tight-
ened.
Turn the angle stop until the angle indicator
55 indicates the requested mitre angle.
Tighten the locking knob 54 again.
Adjusting Vertical Bevel Angles
(Saw Blade) (see figure D)
The vertical bevel angle can be set in the range
from 90° to 45°.
Lightly unscrew the locking knob 29 in anti-
clockwise direction.
Note: By completely loosening the locking knob,
the saw blade tilts approx. to the 30° position
by means of gravity force.
Press the handwheel 12 toward the rear
(Push) and hold it in this position.
This forces the teeth on the connecting link
to engage in the gear ring of the handwheel.
