Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use
common sense when operating a power tool.
Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools
may result in serious personal injury.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair,
clothing, and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught
in moving parts.
Electrical Safety
Double insulated tools are equipped with a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install a
polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way. Double insulation [] eliminates the need for
the three wire grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
•
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off
before plugging in. Carrying tools with your
finger on the switch or plugging in tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before
turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left
attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in
personal injury.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
•
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. Proper footing and balance
enables better control of the tool in unexpected
situations.

LOCK-ON
Bu'n'ON
Note: If the variable speed control selector is fully
turned in the clockwise direction (zero setting), your
saw may not run.
See Figure 3.
Your saw is equipped with a lock-on feature, which is
convenient when continuous cutting is required for
extended periods of time. To lock-on, depress the
switch trigger; push in and hold the lock-on button,
located on the side of the handle; then release the
switch trigger. Release lock-on button and your saw
will continue running.
Note: If you desire not to use the variable speed
control selector, turn it in the full counterclockwise
direction. This will allow the speed of your saw to be
controlled by the amount of switch trigger depression.
Avoid running your saw at low speeds for extended
periods of time. Running at low speeds under constant usage may cause your saw to become overheated. If this occurs, cool your saw by running it
without a load and at full speed.
To release the lock, depress the switch trigger and
release.
If you have the lock-on feature engaged during use
and your saw becomes disconnected from the power
supply, disengage the lock-on feature immediately.
_,
The following guidelines may be used in determining
correct speed for various applications:
Low speed is ideal when minimum speed and power
is required. For example, starting cuts.
WARNING:
Before connecting your saw to the
power supply source, always check to be sure it
is not in lock-on position (depress and release
switch trigger). Failure to do so could result in
accidental starting of your saw, resulting in
possible serious injury. Also, do not lock the
trigger on jobs where your saw may need to
be stopped suddenly.
Medium speed is suitable for cutting hard metals,
plastics, and laminates.
High speed produces best results when maximum
power is required. For example, cutting wood. Soft
metals such as aluminum, brass, and copper also
require high speeds.

STORAGE
See Figure 5.
A convenient feature on your saw is a blade storage
area. As shown in Figure 5, the blade storage area is
located on the back of your saw. This is a convenient
place for storing extra blades or storing blades when
notin use.
As previously mentioned, there are two blade slots on
your saw. Install blade in the front slot for general
cutting, making straight cuts, angle cutting, plunge
cutting, splinter-free cutting, and when using a flush
cutting blade. Install blade in the back slot when scroll
cutting.
GENERAL
CUTTING
See Figure 6.
Rest the front of the saw base on the workpiece and
align cutting edge of the blade with the line on your
workpiece. Make sure the power cord is out of your
way and not in the line of cut. Start your saw and
move it forward on the work surface. Apply downward
pressure to keep the saw steady and only enough
forward pressure to keep the blade cutting.

Forcing your saw may overheat the motor and break
saw blades. Broken blades can be reused by loosening the blade screws until the portion left in the blade
clamp drops out, then putting the remainder of the
blade back into the blade clamp and retightening the
blade screws. It may be necessary to flatten the tooth
set in the area to be inserted into the blade clamp
when using broken blades.
STRAIGHT
CUT
See Figure 6.
,_
WARNING: To avoid serious personal injury, do
not use saw without chip shield properly in place.
A straight cut can be made by clamping a piece of
wood or straightedge to the workpiece and guiding
the edge of your saw against it. Make the cut from
one direction only: don't cut halfway and complete the
cut from the opposite end.

LOCK
See Figure 7.
Your saw is equipped with a thumb operated lock for
locking the knob in (4) positions, 90 ° apart. Lock and
unlock the scroller mechanism of your saw by rotating
the lock, located on the front of your saw, in the
direction of the arrows as shown in Figure 7. Looking
the knob as shown in Figure 7 permits cuts to be
made close to walls and corners. For scroll cutting,
the lock must be in the unlocked position for free
rotation of the saw bar.
SCROLL
CUTTING
See Figures 8 and 9.
Your auto-scroll saw is designed to permit 360 °
rotation of the saw blade so that intricate designs may
be cut with minimum effort with the blade installed in
the back slot. Your saw may be operated either by
rotating the auto scroller knob manually with your free
hand, or by guiding the direction of the cut with
applied pressure on the handle as shown in figures 8
and 9.
_k, WARNING:
Excessive side pressure to the
blade could result in broken blades or damage to
the material being cut.
METAL
CUTTING
Many kinds of metalscan be cut with your saw. Be
careful not to twist or bend the blades. Do not force. If
the blade chatters or vibrates excessively, use a finertooth blade or higher speed. If blade heats excessively,
use lower speed. If blade teeth become filled or clogged
when cutting soft metals, such as aluminum, use a
coarser-tooth blade or lower speed. We recommend use
of oil when cutting metals to keep blades cool, increase
cutting action, and prolong blade life. Clamp the work
firmly and saw 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 saw close to the vise. To cut thin
sheet materials, "sandwich" the material between
hardboard or plywood and clamp the layers to eliminate
vibration and material tearing. By doing this, the material
will be cut smoothly. Lay out your pattern or line of cut
on top of the "sandwich".
Important - When cutting metal, keep exposed portion
of saw bar clean and free of metal chips by wiping
frequently with an oily cloth. Use extreme caution in
disposing of oily cloth after completion of job to prevent
potential fire hazard.

GENERAL
DOUBLE
All parts represent an important part of the double
insulation system and should be serviced only by a
qualified Sears service technician.
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 the internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation. Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
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
dust, etc.
_1,
INSULATION
IMPORTANT
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 tool
to your nearest Sears store for repair. Always use
original factory r'eplacement parts when servicing.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They
contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic.
EXTENSION
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 grindings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electric tool parts, such as bearings,
brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not
recommended that this tool be used for extended
work on any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling
compounds, or plaster. During any use on these
materials, it is extremely important that the tool is
cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating, use an extension cord that is heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is
recommended for an extension cord 100 feet or less
in length. When working outdoors, use an extension
cord that is suitable for outdoor use. The cord's jacket
will be marked WA.
_i,
CAUTION: Keep extension cords away from the
cutting area and position the cord so that it will
not get caught on lumber, tools, etc., during
cutting operation.
_1,
WARNING: Check extension cords before each
use. If damaged replace immediately. Never use
tool with a damaged cord since touching the
damaged area could cause electrical shock
resulting in serious injury.
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 normal-operating conditions. Therefore,
no further lubrication is required.

CORDS
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields during power tool
operation or when blowing dust. If operation is
dusty, also wear a dust mask.
Extension cords suitable for use with your saw are
available at your nearest Sears Retail Store.

WARNING:
The operation of any saw can result in foreign objects being thrown into your eyes, which can
result in severe eye damage. Before beginning power tool operation, always wear safety
goggles or safety glasses with side shields and a full face shield when needed. We recommend Wide Vision Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or standard safety glasses with side
shields, available at Sears retail stores.
