How to use a portable table saw

Step one: place wooden boards perpendicular to the saw blade. This step is extremely simple but you should not ignore. Because it is the agent that makes you cut the wood straight and perfect. For the most accurate setting, use a protractor. Or you want to be more perfect, take the time to the carpentry shop to buy a triangle and place it on the table between the wood and the saw blade to measure.

Step two: Use the controller to move the saw head to close the wood you want to cut

Step 3: Press the control button and push the wooden plate slowly through the saw

Note: You have to keep your hands away from the saw blade at a certain distance to avoid possible accidents.

The usage is relatively simple, isn’t it? If you are new to using this type of saw. You should practice cutting perpendicularly first. Later when you have mastered this product, you can adjust the saw blade to your favorite angle and cut it.

Common errors when using Portable table saw

The cutting line of the saw blade is not aligned: This is the problem of most saws as in circular saws that cannot be avoided. And one of the most basic errors is that the cut lines on the wood are not aligned or the wood is scratched. As a result, the product does not get high quality.

The main reason is that you have used an inappropriate, broken or chipped saw. This work also affects the durability of the saw machine, not only does your product no longer have aesthetics.

To remedy this situation, you only need to replace the new and appropriate saw blade for the saw machine to work, the machine can continue to perform normal work.

Can not adjust the speed of the machine: When you use the wrong way and force them to work for too long, there will be signs of speed instability that the machine cannot continue to work.

The cause of this situation is due to 2 cases:

Firstly, because the speed controller of the saw was broken, malfunctioned. You need to repair or replace the speed regulator to work normally.

Secondly, the machine is jammed with many dust mites in the ventilation slots during work, when encountering this case, you just need to remove them and clean the ventilation slot is okay.

Besides, there are many errors I didn’t point out. I see if you don’t know how to fix it, bring the product to the facility you purchased to get the best repair warranty.
