CAUSES AND OPERATOR PREVENTION
it must be replaced only by the manufacturer

OFKICKBACK:
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 kerr 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 misuse and/
or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking proper precautions,
as given below:

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
saw teeth are not engaged into the material. If saw is binding, it may walk up or kickback
from the workpiece as the saw is restarted
m 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.
[] Do not use dull or damaged blades. Unsharpened or improperly set blades produce narrow
kerf causing excessive friction, blade binding and kickback_
[] Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers must be tight and secure before
cut. If blade adjustment shifts while cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.

[]
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_
[] Check 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
blade guard with the retracting handle. Make sure it moves freely and does not touch the blade
or any other part, in alt angles and depths of cut
[] 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 buildup of debris.
[] Lower guard should be retracted manually only for special cuts such as "plunge cuts"
and "compound
cut." Raise lower blade guard by retracting handle. As soon as blade
enters the material, the lower guard must be released. For all other sawing, the lower
guard should operate automatically,
[] Always observe that the lower guard is covering the blade before placing the 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,,

SAW BLADES
The best of saw blades wilt 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 the blades will slow the saw down. Use gum and pitch
remover, hot water or kerosene to remove these accumulations, DO NOT USE GASOLINE.

BLADEGUARD
SYSTEM (Fig 7)
Fig. 7
The lower blade guard attached to your saw
is there for your protection and safety, it
should never be altered for any reason,, If it
becomes damaged or begins to return slow
or sluggish, do not operate the saw until
the damage has been repaired or replaced.
Always leave blade guard in operating
position when using the saw
_DAHGI_R:
When sawing through
workpiece, lower blade guard does
not cover blade on the underside of
workpiece. Since blade is exposed on
underside of workpiece, keep hands
and fingers away from cutting area. Any
part of your body coming in contact with
moving blade will result in serious injury.
Lower blade guard is in up

it has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated wear and possible premature
failure when they are used to work on fiber glass boats and sports cars, wallboard, spackling
compounds or plaster.. The chips and gdndings from these materials are highly abrasive to
electrical 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 compound or plaster. During any use on these materials, it is extremely important that
the tool is cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
