Offering precise finishes and speed of execution, the table saw is used for rectilinear cuts. It is simple to use provided that you follow some safety rules and choose a model suitable for the work to be carried out.

Our advices

Remove the battery or disconnect the power cable before making any adjustments.
Attach a vacuum cleaner to the suction nozzle located in the back of the saw to avoid dust in the room.
Put on gloves, protective goggles, mask, noise-canceling helmet or ear plugs.
Dust off the appliance after use. The cutting line must be drawn taking into account the thickness of the blade.

Cutting with a cutting guide

Attach a wooden clamp with clamp parallel to the cut line. The cleat serves as a guide for a perfectly straight cut. The distance between the cutting line and the cleat is equal to the distance between the lateral edge of the saw and the blade.
Position the blade of the table saw at the cutting line.
Make the cut from one end of the panel to the other by sliding the saw along the guide.

Freehand cutting

Place the blade of the saw in the center line of the cutting line on the outside of the workpiece to be cut.
Start the cut and move the saw by holding the blade along the cutting line.
Use the laser guide of the saw to make the entire cut when the priming is good.

Remove the battery.
Remove the central blade fixing screw with the Allen wrench.
Remove the blade holding washer.
Raise the blade guard and mount the blade on its shaft. The blade teeth should be facing upward at the front of the machine.
Replace the washer and lock the center screw.
Make adjustments and replace the battery.
Start the motor and move the saw by holding the guide against the panel field.
Push slowly and gradually until the cut piece falls.
