How To Use The JMP v2
The JMP v2 is a high quality manual table saw that is designed to make any woodworker’s job a whole lot easier. It can be used to cut, slice or carve almost any type of wood and in any position.
It’s ease of use makes it an ideal saw for cutting through larger pieces of wood which would otherwise need to be hauled over to a miter saw or a bandsaw.
The JMP v2’s adjustable blade angle feature allows you to adjust the angle of the blade from 0° to 90°. With a range of 0.125″ to 3.375″ you can make precise cuts down to the thousandth of an inch.
It’s no wonder that many people use this saw for high precision work in both model making and architecture.
The depth stop adjusts the depth of the blade from 3/8″ to 7/16″. The blade also has a cut out section which can be used for making shallow cuts and curves.
The depth stop can easily be adjusted with just a Phillips head screwdriver by loosening or tightening the set screws.
The fence on the JMP v2 can be adjusted to any angle from 0° to 90° by loosening or tightening the two bolts on the side. These bolts can be easily accessed with an allen key.
Manual controls on the JMPv2 make it easy to maneuver. The operator can use a hand wheel to raise and lower the blade as well as control the angle of the blade.
This is very useful when making shallow cuts or adjusting the depth of a cut.
The JMPv2’s base features four stubby little legs with ample area for stabilizing the saw. There are also four rubber feet on the legs which can be adjusted to increase stability on different types of flooring.
These feet can be adjusted by loosening or tightening the hex bolts on the bottom of each foot.
The JMPv2 has a one piece design for easy transportation and storage. The saw can be folded in half for easy storage and it still retains its structural integrity.
The JMPv2 is a great all purpose saw and will make short work of anything you need. If you only have room for one saw in your workshop then the JMPv2 is probably the one to get.
It is very important that your saw be well tuned up and running at peak performance. It is also important that you learn correct procedures and safety measures when using your saw.
Always keep your saw clean and well maintained.
You wouldn’t want splinters in your work or your hand now would you?
In order to achieve the best cuts it is important that you follow the steps detailed below.
1. Set up your saw on a sturdy workbench with a wooden surface.
2. Unfold the saw and check to see if all parts are present and undamaged.
3. Examine the table top for flatness and make any necessary adjustments.
4. Loosen the three hex bolts on the back of the saw’s base.
This will allow you to adjust the tension of the belt on the saw’s motor.
5. Turn the center bolt (which should be free to spin) with your hand in the direction that will tighten the belt and turn the saw on.
6. Turn the center bolt in the opposite direction that will loosen the belt and turn the saw off.
7. Continue this process until you reach an optimal level of tension for keeping the saw running while also allowing you to adjust it with minimal resistance.
8. While you may not need to re-adjust the belt tension again it is a good idea to regularly check this on your saw.
9. Check the blades and change them immediately if they are damaged in any way or begin to show signs of dullness.
10. Check the general condition of your saw.
Oils, grease, and dirt can all build up on the exterior of your saw and on the interior as well. Clean your saw to make sure that everything is in good working order and that no stray pieces of wood or other objects have built up in any of the moving parts.
11. Always wear safety gear when operating a table saw.
This includes, but is not limited to: gloves, goggles, and a long sleeved shirt. It may also be a good idea to use earplugs or some other method of protecting your hearing.
12. Always cut with the grain and use proper measuring techniques.
13. Always make sure that the material you are cutting is secure on the saw and will not be thrown back at you or fly off of the table.
14. Always be aware of your fingers and hands at all times as they are probably the closest things to the saw blade.
15. Always be sure to turn the saw off before releasing anything that is clamped or held down.
16. Always be sure that the blade has come to a complete stop before removing any pieces from the table or attempting any other type of work on your project.
17. If at any time you feel that something is amiss with the way your saw is working, have it inspected by a professional.
Your life may depend on it.
