CAUTION:
Carefully read through this entire
owner's manual before using your new
reciprocating saw. Pay close attention to the
Rules For' Safe Operation, Warnings and
Cautions. If you use your reciprocating saw
properly and only for what it is intended, you will
enjoy years of safe, reliable service.
The purpose of safety symbols is to attract your attention to possible dangers. The safety symbols, and
the explanations with them, deserve your careful attention and understanding. The safety warnings do
not by themselves eliminate any danger. The instructions or warnings they give are not substitutes for
proper accident prevention measures.

INSULATION
Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be performed only by a qualified service
technician For service we suggest you return the too!
to your nearest Sears Store for repair. Always use
original factory replacement parts when servicing°
Double insulation is a concept in safety, in electric
power tools which eliminates the need for the usual
three-wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal
parts are isolated from internal metal motor
components with pi'otecting insulation. Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
_,
WARNING: Do not attempt to operate this tool

CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use
of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged
should be carefully checked to determine that it
will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for' alignment of moving parts,

cord will cause a drop in fine voltage resulting in
loss of power and overheating. A wire gage size
(A_WG.) of at least 14 is recommended for an
extension cord t00 feet or tess in length. A cord
exceeding 100 feet is not recommended. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller

SELECTION
To obtain the best performance from your saw it is important to select a specific blade for the particular
application and type of material you wish to cut. By doing this you will get a smoother faster cut and prolong blade
life. Replacement blades for this saw are available from your nearest Sears Retail Store.

CONNECTION
Your saw has a precision built electric motor. It should
be connected to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60
Hz, AC only (normal household current). Do not
operate this too! on direct current (DC). A substantial
voltage drop will cause a loss of power and the motor
wil! overheat. If your saw does not operate when
plugged into an outlet, double-check the power supply°
See Figure 1
Before attempting to use your saw, familiarize yourself
with all operating features and safety requirements

SPEED
See Figure 2
Your electronic reciprocating saw has a variable speed
control selector' designed to allow operator' control and
adjustment of speed and power limits The speed and
power of your saw can be increased or decreased by
rotating the variable speed control selector in the
direction of the arrows shown in figure 2
If you desire to lock the switch on at a given speed,
depress the switch trigger, push in and hold the lockon button, then while holding the lock-on button
pushed in release the switch tngger Next, adjust the
variable speed control selector until the desired speed
is reached.
NOTE: If the variable speed control selector is
fully turned in the counterclockwise direction
(zero setting) your saw may not run.
If you desire not to use the variable speed control
selector, turn it in the full clockwise direction.
This will allow the speed of your saw to be fully
controlled by the amount of switch trigger
depression.
Avoid running your saw at tow speeds for extended
periods of time. Running at tow speeds under constant
usage may cause the motor of your saw to become
overheated,. If this occurs, cool your saw by running it
without a load and at full speed.
WARNING:
When using your saw with the
switch lock-on, keep your finger on the trigger
and be preapared to disengage the lockuon
feature at all times Failure to do so could result
in loss of control leading to possible serious
injury.
WARNING:
Your saw should never be
connected to power supply when you are
assembling parts, making adjustments, installing
or removing blades, when cleaning, or' when not
in use Disconnecting your saw will prevent
accidental starting that could cause serious
injury
If you have the lock-on feature engaged during use
and your saw becomes disconnected from power
supply, disengage the lock-on feature immediately
WARNING:
Before connecting your saw to
power supply source, always check to be sure it
is not in "lock-on position" (depress and release
switch trigger) Failure to de so could result in
accidental starting of saw resulting in possible
serious injury. Also, do not lock the trigger on
jobs where your saw may need to be stopped
suddenly

Metals such as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods, aluminum,
brass, and copper may be cut with your saw° Be
careful not to twist or bend the saw blade. Do not
force, We recommend cutting oil when cutting most
soft metals and steel. Cutting oil will also keep blades
cool, increase cutting action, and prolong blade life.
Never use gasoline since normal sparking of motor
could ignite fumes Clamp the work firmly and cut
close to the clamping point to eliminate any vibration of
the work being cut. When cutting conduit pipe or angle
iron, clamp work in a vise if possible and cut close to
the vise. To cut thin sheet material, "sandwich" the
material between hardboard or plywood and clamp the
layers to eliminate vibration and material tearing

GENERAL
LUBRICATION
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a
sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of
the unit under norrnai operating conditions. Therefore,
no further' lubrication is required
EXTENSION
Only the parts shown on parts list, page fifteen, are
intended to be repaired or replaced by the customer_
All other parts represent an important part of the
double insufation system and should be serviced only
by a qualified Sears service technician.
CORDS
The use of any extension cord will cause some toss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating, use an extension cord that is heaw
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A W.Gv) of at least 16 is
recommended for an extension cord 75 feet or less in
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts.
Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various
types of commercial solvents and may be damaged
by their use. Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon

WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc. come in contact with plastic part& They
contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic.,
It has been found that electric tools are subject to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure when
they are used on fiberglass boats, sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds, or' plaster° The
chips and gdndings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electdc tool parts such as bearings,
brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not
recommended that this toof be used for extended
work on any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling
