CAUTION:
Always be sure that the tool is switched off and the battery cartridge is
removed before adjusting or checking function on the tool.
Always switch off the tool before insertion or removal of the battery
cartridge.
To remove the battery cartridge, withdraw it from the tool while pressing
the buttons on both sides of the cartridge.
To insert the battery cartridge, align the tongue on the battery cartridge
with the groove in the housing and slip it into place. Always insert it all
the way until it locks in place with a little click. If not, it may accidentally
fall out of the tool, causing injury to you or someone around you.
Do not use force when inserting the battery cartridge. If the cartridge
does not slide in easily, it is not being inserted correctly.
Adjusting depth of cut
CAUTION:
• After adjusting the depth of cut, always tighten the lever securely.
Loosen the lever on the side of the rear handle and move the base up or
down. At the desired depth of cut, secure the base by tightening the lever.
For cleaner, safer cuts, set cut depth so that no more than one blade tooth
projects below workpiece. Using proper cut depth helps to reduce potential for
dangerous KICKBACKS which can cause personal injury.

OPERATION
•
•
001472
Hold the tool firmly. The tool is provided with both a front grip and rear handle.
Use both to best grasp the tool. If both hands are holding saw, they cannot be
cut by the blade. Set the base on the workpiece to be cut without the blade
making any contact. Then turn the tool on and wait until the blade attains full
speed. Now simply move the tool forward over the workpiece surface, keeping
it flat and advancing smoothly until the sawing is completed.
To get clean cuts, keep your sawing line straight and your speed of advance
uniform. If the cut fails to properly follow your intended cut line, do not attempt
to turn or force the tool back to the cut line. Doing so may bind the blade and
lead to dangerous kickback and possible serious injury. Release switch, wait
for blade to stop and then withdraw tool. Realign tool on new cut line, and start
cut again. Attempt to avoid positioning which exposes operator to chips and
wood dust being ejected from saw. Use eye protection to help avoid injury.

CAUTION:
Be sure to move the tool forward in a straight line gently. Forcing or
twisting the tool will result in overheating the motor and dangerous
kickback, possibly causing severe injury.
If the tool is operated continuously until the battery cartridge has
discharged, allow the tool to rest for 15 minutes before proceeding with a
fresh battery.
The handy rip fence allows you to do extra-accurate straight cuts. Simply slide
the rip fence up snugly against the side of the workpiece and secure it in position with the screw on the front of the base. It also makes repeated cuts of uniform width possible.
