General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
en
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to
your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
1 609 929 N78 | (7.2.08)
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use
of an RCD reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use a power tool
while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of
the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can
be caught in moving parts.
Bosch Power Tools
OBJ_BUCH-179-003.book Page 19 Thursday, February 7, 2008 9:51 AM
English | 19
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
5) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power
tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool
bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
Bosch Power Tools
Machine-specific
Safety Warnings
f DANGER: Keep hands away from cutting area and the 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.
f Do not reach underneath the workpiece.
The guard cannot protect you from the blade
below the workpiece.
f Adjust the cutting depth to the thickness of
the workpiece. Less than a full tooth of the
blade teeth should be visible below the workpiece.
f Never hold the workpiece being cut in your
hands or across your leg. Secure the workpiece to a stable platform. It is important to
support the work properly to minimize body
exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
f Hold the power tool only by the insulated
gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with
a “live” wire will also make exposed metal
parts of the power tool “live” and shock the
operator.
f When ripping always use a rip fence or
straight edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and reduces the chance of blade
binding.
f Always use blades with correct size and
shape (diamond versus round) of arbour
holes. Blades that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentrically, causing loss of control.
f Never use damaged or incorrect blade
washers or bolt. The blade washers and bolt
were specially designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety of operation.

f Causes and operator prevention of kickback:
– 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 the result of saw misuse and/or
incorrect operating procedures or conditions
and can be avoided by taking proper precautions as given below.
f Maintain a firm grip with both hands on the
saw and position your arms to resist kickback forces. Position your body to either
side of the blade, but not in line with the
blade. Kickback could cause the saw to jump
backwards, but kickback forces can be controlled by the operator, if proper precautions
are taken.
f 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.
f When restarting a saw in the workpiece,
centre the saw blade in the kerf and check
that saw 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.
f Support large panels to minimise 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.
1 609 929 N78 | (7.2.08)
f Do not use dull or damaged blades. Unsharpened or improperly set blades produce
narrow kerf causing excessive friction, blade
binding and kickback.
f Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers must be tight and secure before making cut. If blade adjustment shifts while cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.
f Use extra caution when making a “plunge
cut” into existing walls or other blind areas.
The protruding blade may cut objects that
can cause kickback.
f Check lower guard for proper closing before each use. Do not operate the 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.
f Check the operation 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 build-up of debris.
f Lower guard should be retracted manually
only for special cuts such as “plunge cuts”
and “compound cuts”. Raise lower guard by
retracting handle and as soon as blade enters the material, the lower guard must be
released. For all other sawing, the lower
guard should operate automatically.
f 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.
f Use the appropriate riving knife for the
blade being used. For the riving knife to
work, it must be thicker than the body of the
blade but thinner than the tooth set of the
blade.
Bosch Power Tools
OBJ_BUCH-179-003.book Page 21 Thursday, February 7, 2008 9:51 AM

f Adjust the riving knife as described in this
instruction manual. Incorrect spacing, positioning and alignment can make the riving
knife ineffective in preventing kickback.
f Always use the riving knife except when
plunge cutting. Riving knife must be replaced after plunge cutting. Riving knife
causes interference during plunge cutting
and can create kickback.
f For the riving knife to work, it must be engaged in the workpiece. The riving knife is
ineffective in preventing kickback during
short cuts.
f Do not operate the saw if riving knife is
bent. Even a light interference can slow the
closing rate of a guard.
f Do not reach into the saw dust ejector with
your hands. They could be injured by rotating parts.
f Do not work overhead with the saw. In this
manner you do not have sufficient control
over the power tool.
f Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are hidden in the work area or call
the local utility company for assistance.
Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can
lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage or may cause an
electric shock.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped
with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Always wait until the machine has come to
a complete stop before placing it down. The
tool insert can jam and lead to loss of control
over the power tool.
f Never use the machine with a damaged cable. Do not touch the damaged cable and
pull the mains plug when the cable is damaged while working. Damaged cables increase the risk of an electric shock.
Functional Description
Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the
warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Intended Use
The machine is intended for lengthways and
crossways cutting of wood with straight cutting
lines as well as mitre cuts in wood while resting
firmly on the workpiece. With suitable saw
blades, thin-walled non-ferrous metals, e. g.,
profiles, can also be sawed.
Working ferrous metals is not permitted.
f Do not operate the power tool stationary. It
is not designed for operation with a saw table.
f Do not use high speed steel (HSS) saw
blades. Such saw blades can easily break.
f Do not saw ferrous metals. Red hot chips
can ignite the dust extraction.
f When working with the machine, always
hold it firmly with both hands and provide
for a secure stance. The power tool is guided
more secure with both hands.

Vibration total values (triax vector sum) determined according to EN 60745:
Vibration emission value ah <2.5 m/s2, Uncertainty K =1.5 m/s2.
Assembly
The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has been measured in accordance
with a standardised test given in EN 60745 and
may be used to compare one tool with another.
It may be used for a preliminary assessment of
exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main applications of the tool. However
if the tool is used for different applications, with
different accessories or poorly maintained, the
vibration emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level over the total
working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times
when the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect
the operator from the effects of vibration such
as: maintain the tool and the accessories, keep
the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.
f Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug.

corresponds to hand tight plus ¼ turn.
Adjusting the Riving Knife
(see figure B)
f Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug.
f Always work with the riving knife, except
when carrying out plunge cuts. The riving
knife prevents jamming of the saw blade
while sawing.
External Dust Extraction
Mount the vacuum hose 29 (accessory) on to
the saw dust ejector 17. Connect the vacuum
hose 29 to a vacuum cleaner (accessory). An
overview for connecting to various vacuum
cleaners can be found at the end of this manual.
The machine can be plugged directly into the receptacle of a Bosch all-purpose vacuum cleaner
with remote starting control. The vacuum cleaner starts automatically when the machine is
switched on.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material being worked.
Adjustment is carried out at maximum cutting
depth, see Section “Adjusting the Cutting
Depth”.
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially detrimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special
vacuum cleaner.
Loosen screw 24, adjust the riving knife 12 to
the measure shown in the figure and tighten
screw 24 with a tightening torque between
3.5–5 Nm.
Integrated Dust Extraction with Dust Bag
Dust/Chip Extraction

mounted. Insert the dust bag sleeve firmly into
the saw dust ejector 17. Empty the dust bag at
regular intervals to maintain optimum dust collection.
f Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug.
f Dusts from materials such as lead-containing
coatings, some wood types, minerals and
metal can be harmful to one’s health. Touching or breathing-in the dusts can cause allergic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infections of the user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are
considered as carcinogenic, especially in
connection with wood-treatment additives
(chromate, wood preservative). Materials
containing asbestos may only be worked by
specialists.
– Use dust extraction whenever possible.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filterclass respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your
country for the materials to be worked.
Operation
Operating Modes

Note: For bevel cuts, the cutting depth is smaller than the setting indicated on the cuttingdepth scale 15.
Cutting Marks
Sawing performance and cutting quality depend
essentially on the condition and the tooth form
of the saw blade. Therefore, use only sharp saw
blades that are suited for the material to be
worked.

The correct selection of the saw blade depends
on the type and quality of the wood and whether
lengthway or crossway cuts are required.
When cutting spruce lengthways, long spiral
chips are formed.
The 0° cutting mark (9) indicates the position of
the saw blade for right-angled cuts. The 45° cutting mark (8) indicates the position of the saw
blade for 45° cuts.
For precise cuts, position the circular saw
against the workpiece as shown in the figure. It
is best to carry out a trial cut.
Starting Operation
f Observe correct mains voltage! The voltage
of the power source must agree with the
voltage specified on the nameplate of the
machine. Power tools marked with 230 V
can also be operated with 220 V.
Switching On and Off
To start the machine, first push the lock-off button for the On/Off switch 2 and then press the
On/Off switch 1 and keep it pressed.
To switch off the machine, release the On/Off
switch 1.
Note: For safety reasons, the On/Off switch 1
cannot be locked; it must remain pressed during
the entire operation.
Working Advice
Protect saw blades against impact and shock.
Guide the machine evenly and with light feed in
the cutting direction. Excessive feed significantly reduces the service life of the saw blade and
can cause damage to the power tool.
Bosch Power Tools
Beech and oak dusts are especially detrimental
to health. Therefore, work only with dust extraction.
Sawing with Parallel Guide (see figure D)
The parallel guide 10 enables exact cuts along a
workpiece edge and cutting strips of the same
dimension.
Loosen wing bolt 7 and slide the scale of the
parallel guide 10 through the guide in the base
plate 13. Adjust the desired cutting width as the
scale setting at the respective cutting mark 9 or
8; see Section “Cutting Marks”. Tighten wing
bolt 7 again.
Sawing with Auxiliary Guide (see figure E)
For sawing large workpieces or straight edges, a
board or strip can clamped to the workpiece as
an auxiliary guide; the base plate of the circular
saw can be guided alongside the auxiliary guide.
Sawing with Guide Rail (see figure G)
The guide rail 27 is used to carry out straight
cuts.
The adhesive coating prevents the guide rail
from slipping and protects the surface of the
workpiece. The coating of the guide rail allows
the circular saw to glide easily.
The rubber lip on the guide rail acts as a splinter
guard that prevents fraying or tearing out of the
surface when sawing wooden materials. For
this, the teeth of the saw blade must face directly against the rubber lip.
The guide rail 27 must not extend beyond the
face side of the workpiece where the cut is to
be started.

The guide-rail adapter 26 is required for working
with the guide rail 27. The guide-rail adapter 26
is mounted in the same manner as the parallel
guide 10.
The following work steps are required for exact
cuts using the guide rail 27:
– Place the guide rail 27 on to the workpiece
projecting lightly over the side. Pay attention
that the side with the rubber lip faces to the
workpiece.
– Fasten the guide rail 27 with suitable clamping devices, e. g., screw clamps, on the workpiece. Set the circular saw with the premounted guide-rail adapter 26 on to the
guide rail.
– Switch the machine on and guide it in the
cutting direction applying moderate and
steady feed.
Two guide rails can be connected to one with
use of the connection piece 28. Clamping is carried out with the four screws located in the connection piece.
Maintenance and Service
Maintenance and Cleaning
f Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug.
– Set the circular saw with the premounted
guide-rail adapter 26 on to the guide rail 27.
– Adjust the desired cutting depth and the bevel angle. Observe the marks on the guide-rail
adapter 26 for preadjustment of the various
bevel angles; see figure F.
– Align the circular saw with guide-rail adapter
in such a manner that the teeth of the saw
blade 21 face against the rubber lip. The position of the saw blade 21 depends on the selected cutting angle. Do not saw into the
guide rail.
f For safe and proper working, always keep
the machine and ventilation slots clean.
The retracting blade guard must always be able
to move freely and retract automatically. Therefore, always keep the area around the retracting
blade guard clean. Remove dust and chips by
blowing out with compressed air or with a

Saw blades that are not coated can be protected against corrosion with a thin coat of acid-free
