General Power Tool Safety Warnings
WARNING
Read all safety warnings, instructions, illustrations and specific-
tions provided with this power tool. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/ or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
Work area safety

  • Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
  • Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks that may ignite dust or fumes.
  • Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
    Electrical safety
  • Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
  • Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
    There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
  • Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
    Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
  • Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
    Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
  • When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
  • If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply.
    The use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
    Personal safety
  • Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of innate- tion while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
  • Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
  • Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to a power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool.
    Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
  • Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
  • Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
  • Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair and clothing away from moving parts.
    Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
  • If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used.
    Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
  • Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools allow you to become complacent and ignore tool safety principles. A careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction of a second.
    Power tool use and care
  • Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
  • Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
  • Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or remove the battery pack, if detachable, from the power
    tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools.
    Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
  • Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
  • Maintain power tools and accessories. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect thepower tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
  •  Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
  • Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed.
    Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
  • Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and grasping surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of the tool in unexpected situations. Battery tool use and care
  • Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer.
    A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
  • Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs.
    The use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
  • When the battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
  • Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
  • Do not use a battery pack or tool that is damaged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behavior resulting in fire, explosion or risk of injury.
  • Do not expose a battery pack or tool to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or temperature above 130°C may cause an explosion.
  • Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire. Service
  • Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
  • Never service damaged battery packs. Service of battery packs should only be performed by the manufacturer or authorized service providers.

Safety instructions for table saws

Guarding related warnings

  • Keep guards in place. Guards must be in working order and be properly mounted. A guard that is loose, damaged, or is not functioning correctly must be repaired or replaced.
  • Always use a saw blade guard and riving knife for every through–cutting operation. For through-cutting operations where the saw blade cuts completely through the thickness of the workpiece, the guard and other safety devices help reduce the risk of injury.
  • Immediately reattach the guarding system after completing an operation (such as rabbeting) that requires removal of the guard and/or riving knife. The guard and riving knife help to reduce the risk of injury.
  • Make sure the saw blade is not contacting the guard, riving knife or the workpiece before the switch is turned on. Inadvertent contact of these items with the saw blade could cause a hazardous condition.
  • Adjust the riving knife as described in this instruction manual. Incorrect spacing, positioning and alignment can make the riving knife ineffective in reducing the likelihood of kickback.
  • For the riving knife to work, it must be engaged in the workpiece. The riving knife is ineffective when cutting workpieces that are too short to be engaged with riving knife. Under these conditions, a kickback cannot be prevented by the riving knife.
  • Use the appropriate saw blade for the riving knife. For the riving knife to function properly, the saw blade diameter must match the appropriate riving knife and the
    body of the saw blade must be thinner than the thickness of the riving knife and the cutting width of the saw blade must be wider than the thickness of the riving knife.

Cutting procedures warnings

  •  BOSCH GTS 18V-216 Professional Biturbo Cordless Spray Table Instructions  & troubleshooting 15 DANGER: Never place your fingers or hands in the vicinity or in line with the saw blade. A moment of inattention or a slip could direct your hand towards the saw blade and result in serious personal injury.
  • Feed the workpiece into the saw blade only against the direction of rotation. Feeding the workpiece in the same direction that the saw blade is rotating above the table may result in the workpiece, and your hand, being pulled into the saw blade.
  • Never use the miter gauge to feed the workpiece when ripping and do not use the rip fence as a length stop when crosscutting with the miter gauge. Guiding the workpiece with the rip fence and the miter gauge at the same time increases the likelihood of saw blade binding and kickback.
  • When ripping, always apply the workpiece feeding force between the fence and the saw blade. Use a push stick when the distance between the fence and the saw blade is less than 150mm, and use a push block when this distance is less than 50 mm. “Work helping” devices will keep your hand at a safe distance from the saw blade.
  • Use only the push stick provided by the manufacturer or constructed in accordance with the instructions. This push stick provides sufficient distance of the hand
    from the saw blade.
  • Never use a damaged or cut push stick. A damaged push stick may break causing your hand to slip into the saw blade.
  • Do not perform any operation “freehand”. Always use either the rip fence or the mitre gauge to position and guide the workpiece. “Freehand” means using your hands to support or guide the workpiece, in lieu of a rip fence or miter gauge. Freehand sawing leads to misalignment, binding and kickback.
  • Never reach around or over a rotating saw blade.
    Reaching for a workpiece may lead to accidental contact with the moving saw blade.
  • Provide auxiliary workpiece support to the rear and/ or sides of the saw table for long and/or wide workpieces to keep them level. A long and/or wide workpiece has a tendency to pivot on the table’s edge, causing loss of control, saw blade binding and kickback.
  • Feed workpiece at an even pace. Do not bend or twist the workpiece. If jamming occurs, turn the tool off immediately, unplug the tool then clear the jam. Jamming the saw blade by the workpiece can cause kickback or stall the motor.
  • Do not remove pieces of cut-off material while the saw is running. The material may become trapped between the fence or inside the saw blade guard and the saw blade
    pulling your fingers into the saw blade. Turn the saw off and wait until the saw blade stops before removing the material.
  • Use an auxiliary fence in contact with the tabletop when ripping workpieces less than 2 mm thick. A thin workpiece may wedge under the rip fence and create a kickback.
    Kickback causes and Related Warnings Kickback is a sudden reaction of the workpiece due to a pinched, jammed saw blade or misaligned line of cut in the workpiece with respect to the saw blade or when a part of the workpiece binds between the saw blade and the rip fence or other fixed object.
    Most frequently during kickback, the workpiece is lifted from the table by the rear portion of the saw blade and is propelled toward the operator.
    Kickback is the result of saw misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking
    proper precautions as given below.
  • Never stand directly in line with the saw blade. Always position your body on the same side of the saw blade as the fence. Kickback may propel the workpiece at high
    velocity towards anyone standing in front and in line with the saw blade.
  • Never reach over or in back of the saw blade to pull or to support the workpiece. Accidental contact with the saw blade may occur or kickback may drag your fingers
    into the saw blade.
  •  Never hold and press the workpiece that is being cut off against the rotating saw blade. Pressing the workpiece being cut off against the saw blade will create a binding condition and kickback.
  • Align the fence to be parallel with the saw blade. A misaligned fence will pinch the workpiece against the saw blade and create kickback.
  • Use a feather board to guide the workpiece against the table and fence when making non-through cuts such as rabbeting. A weatherboard helps to control the workpiece in the event of a kickback.
  • Support large panels to minimize the risk of saw blade pinching and kickback. Large panels tend to sag under their own weight. Support(s) must be placed under all portions of the panel overhanging the tabletop.
  • Use extra caution when cutting a workpiece that is twisted, knotted, warped or does not have a straight edge to guide it with a mitre gauge or along the fence. A warped, knotted, or twisted workpiece is unstable and causes misalignment of the kerf with the saw blade, binding and kickback.
  • Never cut more than one workpiece, stacked vertically or horizontally. The saw blade could pick up one or more pieces and cause kickback.
  • When restarting the saw with the saw blade in the workpiece, center the saw blade in the kerf so that the saw teeth are not engaged in the material. If the saw blade binds, it may lift up the workpiece and cause kickback when the saw is restarted.
  • Keep saw blades clean, sharp, and with sufficient set. Never use warped saw blades or saw blades with cracked or broken teeth. Sharp and properly set saw blades minimize binding, stalling and kickback. Table saw operating procedure warnings
  • Turn off the table saw and disconnect the battery pack when removing the table insert, changing the saw blade or making adjustments to the riving knife or blade guard, and when the machine is left unattended. Precautionary measures will avoid accidents.
  • Never leave the table saw running unattended. Turn it off and don’t leave the tool until it comes to a complete stop. An unattended running saw is an uncontrolled hazard.
    u Locate the table saw in a well-lit and level area where you can maintain good footing and balance. It should be installed in an area that provides enough room to easily handle the size of your workpiece. Cramped, dark areas and uneven slippery floors invite accidents.
  • Frequently clean and remove sawdust from under the saw table and/or the dust collection device. Accumulated sawdust is combustible and may self-ignite.
  • The table saw must be secured. A table saw that is not properly secured may move or tip over.
  • Remove tools, wood scraps, etc. from the table before the table saw is turned on. Distraction or a potential jam can be dangerous.
  • Always use saw blades with correct size and shape (diamond versus round) of arbour holes. Saw blades that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw will run off-center, causing loss of control.
  • Never use damaged or incorrect saw blade mounting means such as flanges, saw blade washers, bolts or nuts. These mounting means were specially designed for your  Saw, for safe operation and optimum performance.
  • Never stand on the table saw, do not use it as a stepping stool. Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is accidentally contacted.
  • Make sure that the saw blade is installed to rotate in the proper direction. Do not use grinding wheels, wire brushes, or abrasive wheels on a table saw. Improper saw blade installation or use of accessories not recommended may cause serious injury.
    Additional safety warnings
  • When mounting the saw blade, wear protective gloves. This poses a risk of injury.
  • Do not use HSS saw blades. Such saw blades can easily break.
  • Only use saw blades that match the specifications given in this operating manual and that are tested and marked in accordance with EN 847-1
  • Never use the tool without the table insert. Replace table insert if defective. Without flawless table inserts, injuries are possible from the saw blade.
  •  Keep your work area clean. Material mixtures are particularly hazardous. Light metal dust may catch fire or explode.
  • Choose the saw blade suited to the material you want to work on.
  • Only use saw blades that are recommended by the power tool manufacturer and are suitable for use on the material you want to saw.
  • Only advance the workpiece towards the saw blade
    when it is running. Otherwise, there is a risk of kickback occurring if the saw blade catches in the workpiece.
  • In case of damage and improper use of the battery, vapors may be emitted. The battery can set alight or explode. Ensure the area is well ventilated and seek medical
    attention should you experience any adverse effects. The vapors may irritate the respiratory system.
  • Do not open the battery. There is a risk of short-circuiting.
  • The battery can be damaged by pointed objects such as nails or screwdrivers or by force applied externally.
    An internal short circuit may occur, causing the battery to burn, smoke, explode or overheat.
  • Only use the battery with products from the manufacturer. This is the only way in which you can protect the battery against dangerous overload.

Noise information
Noise emission values were determined according to EN 62841-3-1.
Typically, the A-weighted noise level of the power tool is: Sound pressure level 81 dB(A); sound power level 94 dB(A). Uncertainty K = 3 dB.
Wear hearing protection!
The noise emission value given in these instructions has been measured in accordance with a standardized measuring procedure and may be used to compare power tools.
It may also be used for a preliminary estimation of noise emissions.
The noise emission value given represents the main applications of the power tool. However, if the power tool is used for other applications, with different application tools or
is poorly maintained, the noise emission value may differ. This
may significantly increase noise emissions over the total working period.
To estimate noise emissions accurately, the times when the tool is switched off, or when it is running but not actually being used, should also be taken into account. This may significantly reduce noise emissions over the total working period.

Battery Charging

  •  Use only the chargers listed in the technical data. Only these chargers are matched to the lithium-ion battery of your power tool.
    Note: The battery is supplied partially charged. To ensure full battery capacity, fully charge the battery in the charger before using your power tool for the first time.
    The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any time without reducing its service life. Interrupting the charging process does not damage the battery.
    The lithium-ion battery is protected against deep discharge by the “Electronic Cell Protection (ECP)”. When the battery is discharged, the power tool is switched off by means of a protective circuit: The application tool no longer rotates.
  • Do not continue to press the On/Off switch after the power tool has automatically switched off. The battery can be damaged.
    Follow the instructions on correct disposal.
    Removing the Battery
    The battery (17) is equipped with two locking levels to prevent the battery from falling out if the battery release
    button (28) is pressed unintentionally. The battery is held in
    place by a spring when fitted in the power tool.
    – To remove the battery (17), press the release button (28) and pull the battery out of the power tool. Do not use force to do this.
    Battery charge indicator
    The green LEDs on the battery charge indicator indicate the state of charge of the battery. For safety reasons, it is only possible to check the state of charge when the power tool is not in operation.
    Press the button for the battery charge indicator to show the state of charge. This is also possible when the battery is removed.

Stationary or flexible mounting

  • To ensure safe handling, the power tool must be mounted on a flat, stable work surface (e.g. work bench) before use.
    Mounting on a work surface (see figure h)
    – Use suitable screw fasteners to secure the power tool to the work surface. The holes (8) are used for this purpose. Mounting on a Bosch saw stand (see figure i)
    Thanks to their height-adjustable legs, Bosch saw stands (e.g. GTA 560) provide firm support for the power tool on any surface.
  • Read all the warnings and instructions included with the saw stand. Failure to observe the warnings and follow instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
  • Assemble the saw stand properly before mounting the power tool. Correct assembly is important to prevent the risk of collapsing.
    – Mount the power tool on the saw stand in the transport position.

Dust/chip extraction
The dust from materials such as lead paint, some types of wood, minerals and metal can be harmful to human health. Touching or breathing in this dust can trigger allergic reactions and/or cause respiratory illnesses in the user or in people in the near vicinity. Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are classified as carcinogenic, especially in conjunction with wood treatment additives (chromate, wood preservative). Materials containing asbestos may only be machined by specialists. – Use a dust extraction system that is suitable for the material wherever possible. – Provide good ventilation at the workplace. – It is advisable to wear a P2 filter class breathing mask.
The regulations on the material being machined that apply in the country of use must be observed.

  • Avoid dust accumulation at the workplace. Dust can easily ignite.
    The dust/chip extraction system can be blocked by dust, chips or fragments of the workpiece.
    – Switch the power tool off and remove the battery.
    – Wait until the saw blade has come to a complete stop.
    – Determine the cause of the blockage and eliminate it.
  • To prevent the risk of fire when sawing aluminum, empty the lower saw blade cover and do not use chip extraction.

Cleaning the lower saw blade cover (see figure j)
You can open the lower saw blade cover (46) to remove workpiece fragments and large chips.
– Switch the power tool off and remove the battery from the power tool.
– Wait until the saw blade has come to a complete stop.
– Tilt the power tool sideways.
– Open the base grid (33) (see figure a).
– Gently pull apart the tabs (47) of the lower saw blade cover and open the lower saw blade cover (46).
– Remove workpiece fragments and chips.
– Close the lower saw blade cover (46) again, making sure that the tabs click into place (47).
– Close the base grid (33).
– Bring the power tool into the work position.
External dust extraction (see figure k)
– Firmly insert a suitable dust extraction hose into the dust extraction adapter (31).
The dust extractor must be suitable for the material being worked.
When extracting dry dust that is especially detrimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special dust extractor.

Changing the saw blade (see figures l1−l4)

  • Remove the battery from the power tool before carrying out work on the power tool (e.g. maintenance, changing tool, etc.). The battery should also be removed for transport and storage. There is risk of injury from unintentionally pressing the on/off switch.
  • When mounting the saw blade, wear protective gloves. This poses a risk of injury.
  • Only use saw blades the maximum permitted speed of which is higher than the no-load speed of the power tool.
  • Only use saw blades that match the specifications given in this operating manual and that are tested and marked in accordance with EN 847-1
  • Only use saw blades that are recommended by the power tool manufacturer and are suitable for use on the material you want to saw. This prevents the saw tooth tips from overheating and the plastic you want to see from melting.
  • Do not use HSS saw blades. Such saw blades can easily break.

Removing the saw blade
– Open the clamping lever (39) and pull the protective cover (3) out of the groove on the riving knife (4).
– Turn the locking screw (38) as far as possible in the “Unlock” direction using the tip of the ring spanner (9) and lift the table insert (25) out of the tool chamber. A gripping hole (48) is integrated into the tool for ease of lifting.
– Turn the crank (15) clockwise as far as possible so that the saw blade (26) is in the highest possible position above the saw table.
– Turn the clamping nut (49) using the ring spanner (9) while pulling the spindle locking lever (50) until it engages.
– Keep pulling the spindle locking lever and unscrew the clamping nut anticlockwise.

– Refit the protective cover (3) .
Operation

  •  Remove the battery from the power tool before carrying out work on the power tool (e.g. maintenance,
    changing tool, etc.). The battery should also be removed for transport and storage. There is risk of injury from unintentionally pressing the on/off switch.

Transport position and work position of the saw blade

Transport position
– Remove the protective cover (3), remove the table insert (25) and place the riving knife (4) in the bottom position.
Reinsert the table insert (25).
– Turn the crank (15) anticlockwise until the teeth of the saw blade (26) lie below the saw table (23).
– Push the saw table expansion (6) in fully.
Push the clamping handle (13) down. This fixes the saw table expansion in place.
Work position
– Position the riving knife (4) in the top position directly over the centre of the saw blade, insert the table insert
(25) and fit the protective cover (3).
– Turn the crank (15) clockwise until the top teeth of the saw blade (26) are approx. 3−6 mm above the workpiece.

Extending the saw table
The free end of long and heavy workpieces must have something placed underneath it or be supported.
Saw table expansion (see figure A)
The saw table expansion (6) increases the width of the saw table (23) on the right.
– Pull the clamping handle (13) for the saw table expansion all the way up.
– Pull out the saw table expansion (6) to the required length.
– Push the clamping handle (13) down. This fixes the saw table expansion in place.

Setting miter and bevel angles
To ensure precise cuts, the basic settings of the power tool must be checked and adjusted as necessary after intensive use.
Setting Bevel Angles (saw blade) (see figure B)
The bevel angle can be set between 0° and 45°.
– Loosen the locking lever (20) by turning it anticlockwise.
Note: When the locking lever is fully loosened, gravity causes the saw blade to tilt into a position that corresponds to approximately 30°.
– Pull or push the handwheel (14) along the slotted link un- til the angle indicator (21) shows the required bevel angle.
– Hold the handwheel in this position and retighten the locking lever (20).
For a quick and precise setting of the standard bevel angles of 0° and 45°, there are pre-set stops ((22)),((18)). Setting miter angles (angle guide) (see figure C)
The miter angle can be set between 30° (left-hand side) and 30° (right-hand side).
– Loosen the locking knob (54) if it is tightened.

– Turn the angle guide until the angle indicator (55) shows the required mitre angle.
– Retighten the locking knob (54).
Adjusting the parallel guide
The parallel guide (5) can be positioned on either the left (black scale) or the right (silver scale) of the saw blade. The marking in the scale display (56) shows the set distance
between the parallel guide and the saw blade on the scale (1).
Position the parallel guide on the required side of the saw blade (see “Fitting the parallel guide (see figure e)”, page 22).
Adjusting the parallel guide when the saw table is not pulled out
– Loosen the clamping handle (41) of the parallel guide (5). Move the parallel guide until the marking in the scale display (56) indicates the required distance from the saw blade.
When the saw table is not pulled out, the lower marking on the silver scale (1) applies.
– To secure it in place, push the clamping handle (41) back down.
Adjusting the parallel guide
when the saw table is pulled out (see figure D)
– Position the parallel guide on the right of the saw blade.
Move the parallel guide until the marking in the scale display (56) shows 29 cm on the lower scale.
To secure it in place, push the clamping handle (41) back down.
– Pull the clamping handle (13) for the saw table expansion all the way up.
– Pull out the saw table expansion (6) until the spacing indicator (57) shows the required distance from the saw blade on the upper scale.
– Push the clamping handle (13) down. This fixes the saw table expansion in place. Adjusting the additional parallel guide (see figure E)
To saw narrow workpieces and bevel angles, you must fit the additional parallel guide (43) on the parallel guide (5). The additional parallel guide can be fitted on the left or right
of the parallel guide (5) as required. When sawing, workpieces can become jammed between the parallel guide and the saw blade, caught in the saw blade as it rises and ejected.
You should therefore set the additional parallel guide so that the end of the guide is between the front tooth of the saw blade and the front edge of the riving knife.
– To do so, loosen all wing nuts of the fastening set (44) and move the additional parallel guide until only the front two screws are used for attachment.
– Retighten the wing nuts.

Adjusting the riving knife

The riving knife (4) prevents the saw blade (26) from becoming jammed in the kerf. Otherwise there is a risk of kickback occurring if the saw blade catches in the workpiece.
It is therefore important to ensure that the riving knife is set up correctly:
– The radial clearance between the saw blade and the riving knife must not exceed 3−8 mm (max.).
– The thickness of the riving knife must be smaller than the cutting width and larger than the base blade thickness.
– The riving knife must always be aligned with the saw blade.
– For normal cuts, the riving knife must always be in the highest possible position.
Adjusting the riving knife height (see figure F)
The height of the riving knife must be adjusted in order to saw grooves.

  • Only use the power tool for grooving or routing if a suitable protective guard (e.g. tunnel blade guard, weatherboard) is in place.
    – Open the clamping lever (39) and pull the protective cover (3) out of the groove on the riving knife (4). To prevent damage to the protective guard, store it in the bracket (11) provided on the housing (see figure O2).
    – Turn the crank (15) clockwise as far as possible so that the saw blade (26) is in the highest possible position above the saw table.
    – Release the clamping lever (36) clockwise until it points upwards.
    – Pull the riving knife off the pins (37) (pull the clamping lever (36) outwards slightly) and push the riving knife (4) down as far as possible.
    – Allow both pins (37) to engage in the upper boreholes in the riving knife and then retighten the clamping lever (36).
    The markings (35) on the clamp and clamping lever (36) must be aligned as shown.
  • Start-up
    Switching on (see figure G1)
    – To start the tool, squeeze both sides of the on/off switch (16) and pull it upwards. Switching off (see figure G2)
    – Press the on/off switch (16) all the way downwards.
    Protection against unauthorized use (see figure G3) To protect against unauthorized use, you can lock the on/off switch (16) with a padlock.
    – Push a padlock with a long shackle through the hole in the on/off switch (16) and lock it.

Practical advice

General sawing instructions

  •  Before making any cuts, first make sure that the saw blade cannot come into contact with the stops or any other parts of the tool at any time.
  • Only use the power tool for grooving or routing if a suitable protective guard (e.g. tunnel blade guard, featherboard) is in place.
  • Do not use the power tool for cutting slots (stopped grooves).
    Protect the saw blade against impact and shock. Do not subject the saw blade to lateral pressure.
    The riving knife must be aligned with the saw blade in order to prevent the workpiece from jamming.
    Do not saw workpieces that have become bent or twisted out of shape. The workpiece must always have a straight edge to face against the parallel guide.
    Always store the push stick on the power tool.
    Position of the operator (see figure H)
  • Never stand directly in line with the saw blade. Always position your body on the same side of the saw blade as the fence. Kickback may propel the workpiece at high velocity towards anyone standing in front and in line with the saw blade.
    – Keep hands, fingers and arms away from the rotating saw blade.
    Pay attention to the following instructions:
    – Hold the workpiece firmly with both hands and press it securely against the saw table.
    – When using narrow workpieces or sawing bevel angles, al- ways use the push stick (12) and the additional parallel guide (43) provided.
