control of the tool in unexpected situations.
n Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
n Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
n Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL IN-
STRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed
below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
n Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
n Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks which
may ignite the dust or fumes.
n Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
TOOL USE AND CARE
n Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
n Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
n Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
n Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the tool accidentally.
n Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
n When 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
sparks, burns, or a fire.
n Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
n Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that
may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained tools.
n Use only accessories that are recommended by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when
used on another tool.
n Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
n A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
n Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
n Use battery only with charger listed.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
n When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance
section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or
failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a
risk of shock or injury.
n Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
�n DANGER! Keep hands away from cutting area and
blade. Keep your second hand on auxiliary handle
or motor housing. If both hands are holding the saw,
they cannot be cut by the blade.
n Keep your body positioned to either side of the saw
blade, but not in line with the saw blade. KICKBACK
could cause the saw to jump backwards. (see KICKBACK)
n Do not reach underneath the work. The guard cannot protect you from the blade below the work.
n Check the lower guard for proper closing before
each use. Do not operate saw if lower guard does
not move freely and close instantly. Never clamp or
tie the lower guard into the open position. If saw is
accidentally dropped, lower guard may be bent. Raise
the lower guard with the retracting handle and make
sure it moves freely and does not touch the blade or
any other part, in all angles and depths of cut.
n Check the operation and condition of the lower
guard spring. If the guard and the spring are not
operating properly, they must be serviced before
use. Lower guard may operate sluggishly due to damaged parts, gummy deposits, or a buildup of debris.
n Lower guard should be retracted manually only
for special cuts such as “Pocket Cuts” and “Compound Cuts”. Raise lower guard by Retracting
Handle. As soon as blade enters the material, lower
guard must be released. For all other sawing, the
lower guard should operate automatically.
n Always observe that the lower guard is covering the
blade before placing saw down on bench or floor.
An unprotected, coasting blade will cause the saw to
walk backwards, cutting whatever is in its path. Be
aware of the time it takes for the blade to stop after
switch is released.
n NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands or
across your leg. It is important to support the work
properly to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or
loss of control.
n Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and
shock the operator.
n When ripping always use a rip fence or straight
edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance of blade binding.
n Always use blades with correct size and shape
(diamond vs. round) arbor holes. Blades that do not
match the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentrically, causing loss of control.
n Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers
or bolts. The blade washers and bolt were specially
designed for your saw, for optimum performance and
safety of operation.
Causes and Operator Prevention of Kickback:
n
n
n
n
4
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound, or
misaligned saw blade, causing an uncontrolled saw to
lift up and out of the workpiece toward the operator.
When the blade is pinched or bound tightly by the kerf
closing down, the blade stalls and the motor reaction
drives the unit rapidly back toward the operator.
If the blade becomes twisted or misaligned in the cut,
the teeth at the back edge of the blade can dig into the
top surface of the wood causing the blade to climb out
of the kerf and jump back toward the operator.
Kickback is a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by
taking proper precautions as given below:
Maintain a firm grip on the saw and position your
body and arm in a way that allows you to resist
KICKBACK forces. KICKBACK forces can be controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are taken.
When blade is binding, or when interrupting a cut
for any reason, release the trigger and hold the saw
motionless in the material until the blade comes to
a complete stop. Never attempt to remove the saw
from the work or pull the saw backward while the
blade is in motion or KICKBACK may occur. Investigate and take corrective actions to eliminate the cause
of blade binding.
When restarting a saw in the workpiece, center the
saw blade in the kerf and check that teeth are not
engaged into the material. If saw blade is binding, it
may walk up or KICKBACK from the workpiece as the
saw is restarted.
Support large panels to minimize the risk of blade
pinching and KICKBACK. Large panels tend to sag
under their own weight. Supports must be placed
under the panel on both sides, near the line of cut and
near the edge of the panel.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock.
n For best results, your battery tool should be
charged in a location where the temperature is
more than 50°F but less than 100°F. Do not store
outside or in vehicles.
n Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, battery leakage may occur. If liquid comes
in contact with your skin, wash immediately with
soap and water, then neutralize with lemon juice
or vinegar. If liquid gets into your eyes, flush them
with clean water for at least 10 minutes, then seek
immediate medical attention. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
n Do not use dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened or
improperly set blades produce narrow kerf causing
excessive friction, blade binding, and KICKBACK.
n Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers
must be tight and secure before making cut. If blade
adjustment shifts while cutting, it will cause binding
and KICKBACK.
n Use extra caution when making a “Pocket Cut” into
existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding
blade may cut objects that can cause KICKBACK.
n Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious injury.
n Always wear safety glasses with side shields.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses.
They are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of eye injury.
n Battery tools do not have to be plugged into an
electrical outlet; therefore, they are always in
operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards
when not using your battery tool or when changing
accessories. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
n Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
n Never use a battery that has been dropped or
received a sharp blow. A damaged battery is subject
to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged battery immediately.
n Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in
the presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot
light. To reduce the risk of serious personal injury,
never use any cordless product in the presence of
open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris and
chemicals. If exposed, flush with water immediately.
Laser Guide Warnings:
The laser guide radiation used in the Craftsman trim saw is
Class IIIa with maximum <5 mW and 650nm wavelengths.
These lasers do not normally present an optical hazard
although staring at the beam may cause flash blindness.
n Avoid direct eye exposure when using the laser guide.
n The laser shall be used and maintained in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions.
n Never aim the beam at a person or object other than the
workpiece.
n Always ensure the laser beam is aimed at a sturdy
workpiece without reflective surfaces. Shiny reflective
sheet metal or similar shiny materials are not suitable for
laser use.
n All repairs should be made by an authorized service
representative or the laser manufacturer.

OPERATION
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
WARNING: Do not allow familiarity with tools to
make you careless. Remember that a careless
fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict serious
injury.
If battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
green LED on charger will come on. Allow battery pack to
reach normal temperature, then the red LED will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does not charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest Sears Repair Center for
electrical check.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields when operating tools.
Failure to do so could result in objects being thrown
into your eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.
n Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
n Make sure the power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
n Connect the charger to the power supply.
n Place the battery pack in the charger aligning raised rib
on the battery pack with the groove in the charger.
See Figure 7.
n Press down on the battery pack to be sure contacts on
the battery pack engage properly with contacts in the
charger.
n Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
n Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the battery
pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
n If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack. Allow
the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15 to 30
minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the red
LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging
time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
n The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
n Do not place the charger and battery pack in an area
of extreme heat or cold. They will work best at normal
room temperature.
NOTE: The charger and battery pack should be placed
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F.
n When batteries become fully charged, unplug the
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
APPLICATIONS
You may use this tool for the following purposes:
n Cutting all types of wood products (lumber, plywood,
paneling).
n Cross Cutting/Rip Cutting
n Bevel Cutting
n Pocket Cutting
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the battery
pack, remove the battery pack from the charger
immediately if no LED comes on. Return the battery
pack and charger to your nearest service center for
checking or replacing. Also, if you are removing the
battery pack from the charger and no LEDs are on,
return both the battery pack and the charger to your
nearest service center. Do not insert another battery
pack into the charger. A damaged charger may
damage a battery pack.
LED FUNCTIONS OF CHARGER
LED WILL BE ON TO INDICATE STATUS OF
CHARGER AND BATTERY PACK:
n Red LED on = Fast charging mode.
n Green LED on = Fully charged and in trickle charge
mode.
n Green LED on = When battery pack is inserted into
charger, indicates hot battery pack or that battery pack
is out of or below normal temperature range.
n Yellow and Green LEDs on = Deeply discharged or
defective battery pack.
n No LED on = Defective charger or battery pack.
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low
charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore,
you should charge it until the green LED on the front of the
charger comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time
they are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed
by recharging) for them to become fully charged.
13
OPERATION
CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
NOTE: This situation only occurs when continuous use of
the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to “CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK” for normal recharging
of batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery
pack under normal circumstances, return both the battery
pack and charger to your nearest Sears Repair Center for
electrical check.
When using the tool continuously, the batteries in the
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before
attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes
discharged and is hot, this will cause the green LED to
come on instead of the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert
the battery pack in the charger. If the green LED continues
to remain on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for checking or replacing.

OPERATION
KICKBACK
See Figures 8 - 11.
Kickback occurs when the blade stalls rapidly and the saw
is driven back towards you. Blade stalling is caused by any
action which pinches the blade in the wood.
DANGER: Release switch immediately if blade
50 5

binds or saw stalls. Kickback could cause you to
lose control of the saw. Loss of control can lead to
serious injury.
30
22.5

0
To guard against kickback, avoid dangerous practices
such as the following.
n Setting blade depth incorrectly.
n Sawing into knots or nails in workpiece.
n Twisting the blade while making a cut.
n Making a cut with a dull, gummed up, or improperly set
blade.
n Supporting the workpiece incorrectly.
n Forcing a cut.
n Cutting warped or wet lumber.
n Operating the tool incorrectly or misusing the tool.
To lessen the chance of kickback, follow these safety
practices.
n Keep the blade at the correct depth setting. The depth
setting should not exceed 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) below the
material being cut.
n Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails before cutting.
Never saw into a knot or nail.
n Make straight cuts. Always use a straight edge guide
when rip cutting. This helps prevent twisting the blade.
n Use clean, sharp, and properly set blades. Never make
cuts with dull blades.
n Support the workpiece properly before beginning a cut.
n Use steady, even pressure when making a cut. Never
force a cut.
n Do not cut warped or wet lumber.
n Hold the saw firmly with both hands and keep your body
in a balanced position so as to resist the forces if kickback
should occur.

OPERATION
SAW BLADES
STARTING/STOPPING THE SAW
The best of saw blades will not cut efficiently if they are
not kept clean, sharp, and properly set. Using a dull blade
will place a heavy load on the saw and increase the danger of kickback. Keep extra blades on hand, so that sharp
blades are always available.
Gum and wood pitch hardened on blades will slow the
saw down. Remove saw blade from the saw and use gum
and pitch remover, hot water, or kerosene to remove these
accumulations. DO NOT USE GASOLINE.
See Figure 13.
To start the saw: Depress the switch trigger.
Always let the blade reach full speed, then guide the saw
into the workpiece.
WARNING: The blade coming in contact with the
workpiece before it reaches full speed could cause
the saw to “kickback” towards you resulting in serious injury.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
To stop the saw: Release the switch trigger.
After you release the switch trigger, allow the blade to
come to a complete stop. Do not remove the saw from
the workpiece while the blade is moving.
See Figure 12.
The lower blade guard attached to your trim saw is there
for your protection and safety. Do not alter it for any reason. If it becomes damaged, do not operate the saw until
you have the guard repaired or replaced. Always leave
guard in operating position when using the saw.
DANGER: When sawing through work, lower
blade guard does not cover blade on the underside
of work. Since blade is exposed on underside of
work, keep hands and fingers away from cutting
area. Any part of your body coming in contact with
moving blade will result in serious injury.
SWITCH
TRIGGER
CAUTION: Never use saw when guard is not
operating correctly. Check the guard for correct
operation before each use. The guard is operating
correctly when it moves freely and readily returns to
the closed position. If you drop the saw, check the
lower blade guard and bumper for damage at all
depth settings before reuse.
