FOR SAFE OPERATION
(Continued)
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make
sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use
one heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power
and overheating. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at
least 18 is recommended for an extension cord
25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.
will operate propedy and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment of moving pads,
binding of moving pads, breakage of pads, saw
stability, mounting and any other conditions that
may affect its operation. A guard or other part
that is damaged must be properly repaired or
replaced by a qualified service technician at a
Sears store to avoid dsk of personal injury.
DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade
or cutter against the movement of the blade or
cutter only.
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and replace if damaged.
NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not
leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.
DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry. They can get caught and drew you into
moving pads. Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended. Also wear protective
hair covering to contain long hair.
USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Use the right
blade size, style and cutting speed for the
matedal and the type of cut. Blade teeth should
point down toward the table. Sharp blades
minimize stalling and kickback. Correctly adjust
blade tension.
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH
SIDE SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT safety
glasses.
TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR and minimize
blade breakage, ALWAYS adjust the hold down
foot until it rests on top of the workplece to
prevent the workplece from lifting while cutting,
but not so much that the workpiece drags. Never
operate the saw with any guard or cover removed. Make sure all guards are operating
propedy before each use.
PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust
mask if the cutting operation is dusty.
PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing
protection during extended pedods of operation.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold
work when practical. It's safer than using your
hand and it frees both hands to operate tool.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA.
Do not hand hold pieces so small that your
fingers go under the blade guard. Never reach
underneath work or behind, under, or within
three inches of the blade and its cutting path with
your hands and fingers for any reason. Do not
attempt to remove cut matedal when blade is
moving.
DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for better and safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and
changing accessodes.
DISCONNECT ALL TOOLS. When not in use,
before servicing, or when changing attachments,
blades, bits, cutters, etc., all tools should be
disconnected from power supply.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure
switch is off when plugging in.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The
use of improper accessories may cause risk of
injury.
_1,
WARNING:
Blades coast after turn off.
•
AVOID PINCHING THE BLADE. Be cautious
when cutting off matedal which is irregular in
cross section. For example, molding must lay flat
on the table and not be permitted to rock.
•
DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to
disconnect it from receptacle. Keep cord from
heat, oil, and sharp edges.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY and if
damaged, have repaired by a qualified service
technician at a Sears store. Stay constantly
aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the rotating blade.
NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Sedous injury could
occur if the tool is tipped or if the blade is unintentionally contacted.

M
AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause
your hand to move into the blade. ALWAYS
make sure you have good balance. Do not cut
pieces of material that are too small to hold
comfortably in your hand.
M
REPLACEMENT PARTS. All repairs, whether
electrical or mechanical, should be made by
qualified service technician at a Sears store or
repair center.
_,
WARNING: When servicing use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other
parts may create a hazard or cause product
damage.
B
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE. Normal sparking of the motor could
ignite fumes.
M
DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL,
OR ANY MEDICATION.
M
STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE CONTROL.
Watch what you are doing and use common
sense. Do not operate tool when you are tired.
Do not rush.
A LARGE PIECE OF MATERIAL SHOULD BE
SUPPORTED while cutting. To minimize dsk of
blade pinching and kickback, always support
long workpieces. Saw may slip, walk or slide
while cutting long or heavy boards.
BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
•
BEFORE CHANGING THE SETUP, REMOVING
COVERS, GUARDS OR BLADE, UNPLUG THE
SAW.
n
DO NOT FEED THE MATERIAL TOO QUICKLY
while cutting. Do not force the workpiece against
the blade.
NEVER CUT MORE THAN ONE WORKFIECE
AT A TIME. If making a stacked cut, all of the
pieces must be secured to each other with
masking tape or double stick tape to make one
workpieca. Do not put more than one workpiece
on the saw table at a time. Always hold the work
firmly against the table. See page 17.
AVOID CUTTING NAILS. Inspect for and
remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
m
MAKE SURE THE WORK AREA HAS AMPLE
LIGHTING to see the work and that no obstructions will interfere with safe operation BEFORE
performing any work using your saw.
NEVER PERFORM LAYOUT, ASSEMBLY, OR
SETUP WORK ON THE TABLE while the
cutting tool is operating.

EXTENSION
ELECTRICAL
CORDS
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept
the tool's plug. When using a power tool at a considerable distance from the power source, use an extension cord heavy enough to carry the current that the
tool will draw. An undersized extension cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of
power and causing the motor to overheat. Use the
chart provided below to determine the minimum wire
size required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwfiter's Laboratories (UL)
should be used.
Length of Extension Cord
Your Sears Craftsman Scroll Saw is powered by 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 tool
on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop will
cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the saw does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double check the power supply.

outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer
surface that is green with or without yellow stdpes is
the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or
replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to
a live terminal.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
_1= CAUTION: Keep the cord away from the cutting
area and position the cord so that it will not be
caught on lumber, tools, or other objects dudng
cutting.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel
if the grounding instructions are not comptetely
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properly grounded.
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.

Scroll saw blades wear out quickly and must be
replaced frequently for best cutting results. Expect to
break some blades while you learn to use and adjust
your saw. Blades generally stay sharp for 1/2 hour to
2 hours of cutting, depending on type of material and
speed of operation.
Fig. 11
To tension the blade, rotate the quick release
knob (outer, larger knob) 1/4 turn to the right or
clockwise to apply tension to the blade. Fine
adjustments of the blade tension may be performed using the tension adjusting knob (inner,
smaller knob) at any time, while the blade is
under tension or not.

a musical note. Sound becomes less flat as
tension increases. Sound decreases with too
much tension.
Note: Be careful not to over tension the blade. Too
much tension may cause blade to break as soon as

This scroll saw is designed to cut wood, wood composition products, plastic, and nonferrous metals (aluminum, brass, copper).
Blades wear faster:
• When cutting plywood and other laminates.
• When cutting material thicker than 3/4 in.
• When cutting hardwood.
WARNING:
The operation of any power tool
can result in foreign objects being thrown into
your eyes, which can result in severe eye
damage. To avoid serious personal injury, g
always wear safety goggles or safety glasses
with side shields.
GENERAL
• When side pressure is applied to the blade.
SWITCH
See Fiure
Your scroll saw has an easy access power On/Off
switch. To lock the switch in the Off position, remove
the switch key from the switch. Place the key in a
location that is inaccessible to children and others not
qualified to use the tool.
OPERATION
Please read and understand the following items
concerning your scroll saw before attempting to use
the saw.
•
There is a learning curve for each person who
wants to use this saw. During that period of time,
it is expected that some blades will break until
you learn how to use and adjust the saw.
•
Allow the saw to cut material by guiding the
workpiece into the blade as it moves. Do not
force the work.
•
The blade teeth cut material only on the down
stroke.
14.
ON/OFFSWITCH
You must guide the workpiece into the blade
slowly because the teeth of the blade are very
small and can only remove material on the down
stroka.
•
Scroll saw blades wear out and must be replaced
frequently for best cutting results. Scroll saw
blades generally stay sharp for 112 hour to 2
hours of cutting, depending on type of material
and speed of operation.
•
To get accurate cuts, be prepared to compensate for the blade's tendency to follow the wood
grain as you are cutting wood.
•
In cutting wood, best results are achieved when
cutting wood less than one inch thick.

When cutting wood thicker than one inch, the
user must guide the workpiece very slowly into
the blade and take extra care not to bend or twist
the blade while cutting.
SPEED SWITCH
See Fiure 14.
When choosing a blade to use with your scrow
saw, consider the following carefully:
The speed switch, beside the ON/OFF switch, allows
you t o choose a high speed of approximately 1725
SPM (Strokes Per Minute) or a low speed of approximately 825 SPM.
• Very fine, narrow blades should be used to
scroll cut in thin material 1/4 in. thick or less.
• Most blade packages state the size or thickness and type of material which that blade is
intended to cut. Package should also state the
radius, or size of curve, which can be cut with
that blade.
•
•
• Wider blades cannot cut curves as tight or
small as thinner blades.
16
Use the high speed when cutting hard woods, a
large radius, or rough cut out.
Use the low speed when cutting soft woods, a
small radius, or intricate details. Slow down when
precision cutting is needed.

One of the features of a scroll saw is that it can
be used to make scroll cuts on the interior of a
board without breaking or cutting through the
edge or perimeter of the board.
_k
WARNING: To avoid possible serious injury
from accidental starting, always turn the switch
OFF, remove the switch key, and remove plug
from power source outlet before removing or
replacing the blade.

To make interior cuts in a board, remove the
scroll saw blade as explained in the Installing
Blades section on page 14.
Ddll a 1/4 in. hole in the board to be used to

•
Place the board on the saw table with the hole in
the board over the access hole in the table.
•
Install blade through hole in board then adjust
the hold down foot and the blade tension. See
STACK
CUTTING
Gee Fi ure 16,
After becoming well acquainted with your saw through
practice and experience, you may wish to try stack
cutting. Stack cutting may be used when several
identical shapes need to be cut. Several pieces of
wood may be stacked on top and secured to each
other before cutting. The wood pieces may be joined
together by placing double sided tape between each
piece or by wrapping masking tape around the
comers or ends of the stacked wood. You must attach
the stacked pieces of wood to each other so they will
-move on the table as a single piece of material.
,_
WARNING: To avoid possible, serious personal
injury, do not cut more than one loose piece of
material at a time.
pages 14 and 15.
•
When finished making the interior scroll cuts,
simply remove the blade from the blade holders
as described in the Installing Blades section,
and remove the board from the table.

go under the work hold-down.
USE EXTRA CAUTION WITH LARGE, VERY
SMALL, OR AWKWARD WORKPIECES.
Turn switch OFF.
Never use this tool to cut pieces too small to hold
by hand.
Unplug the saw.
•
•
BEFORE FREEING ANY JAMMED MATERIAL:
Wait for all moving parts to stop.
WHEN BACKING OUT OF THE WORKPIECE,
THE BLADE MAY BIND IN THE KERF (CUT).
THIS IS USUALLY CAUSED BY SAWDUST
CLOGGING UP THE KERF. IF THIS HAPPENS:
• Always use extra supports (tables, saw homes,
blocks, etc.) for any workpiece large enough to
tip when not held down to the table top.
•
Never use another person as a substitute for a
table extension, or as additional support for a
workpiece or to help feed, support, or pull the
workpiece.
• Turn switch OFF.
• Wait for all moving parts to stop.
• When cutting an irregularly shaped workpiece,
plan your work so it will not pinch the blade. A
piece of molding, for example, must lay flat or be
held by a fixture or jig that will not let it twist,
rock, or slip while being cut.
•
Properly support round material such as dowel
rods. They have a tendency to roll during a cut,
causing the blade to "bite." To avoid this, always =
use a "v" block.
18
•
Unplug the saw.
•
Remove the blade from the blade holders.
•
Remove the workpiece with blade from the table.
•
Remove blade from workpiece.
