Guidelines for proper use

  1. Always check your wood for nails or staples. Something as small as the staple at the end of a 1x1 can ruin the blades. If you're not sure, check the entire piece with the metal detector sitting on the table saw.
  2. Always measure the thickness of your work and set the initial and working blade height to remove only small amounts of material per pass. You will damage the blades if you manage to dig the machine out on your work.
  3. If the machine is making a strange noise when you use it, there is a problem, and you should ask for help.
  4. If the blades are dull or damaged, contact the area host immediately.
  5. If you break something, or damage the tool, contact the area host immediately. Don't let others do more damage or hurt themselves by using a broken tool.
  6. Always make sure that the dust collection bag isn't too full and is passing air freely.
  7. Always vacuum the machine, cutting area, and the table around the machine when you are done.
