GENERAL SAFETY RULES
■
WARNING:
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to
follow all instructions listed below, may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
■
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
■
■
■
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools may create
sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away
while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
■
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.
■
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations. Do not use on a ladder or unstable support.
■
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
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 body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
Don’t expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
TOOL USE AND CARE
■
■
■
■
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to
carry the tools or pull the plug from an outlet.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric
shock.
■
■
When operating a power tool outside, use an
outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or “W”.
These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
■
PERSONAL SAFETY
■
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.
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.
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.
■
3
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your
application. The correct tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or
off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug from power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of the reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier
to control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by
the manufacturer for your model. Accessories that
may be suitable for one tool, may become hazardous when used on another tool.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
■
SERVICE
■

Some dust created by power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples
of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement
and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemicallytreated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending
on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well
ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as those dust masks that are
specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

FEATURES
DOUBLE INSULATION
SWITCH
Your Ryobi power tool is double insulated. This means
you are separated from the tool's electrical system by
two complete sets of electrical insulation. This extra
layer of insulation is intended to protect the user from
electrical shock due to a break in the wiring insulation. All
exposed metal parts are isolated from the internal metal
motor components with protecting insulation. Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
Your Speed Saw has a conveniently located slide switch.
SPINDLE LOCK
A spindle lock secures the spindle and allows you to
easily loosen the collet nut and change bits.
NOTE: Do not run Speed Saw with spindle lock engaged.
DEPTH ADJUSTMENT RING
Your Speed Saw is equipped with a depth adjustment
ring that allows you to adjust the depth of cut up to 1 in.
(2.5 cm).
WARNING:
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the tool's
internal wiring. Observe all normal safety precautions
related to avoiding electrical shock.
CIRCLE CUTTER
The circle cutter enables you to quickly cut circles from
3.5 in. (8.9 cm) in diameter to 12 in. (30.5 cm) in
diameter.
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 RYOBI AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER
for repair. When servicing use only identical Ryobi
replacement parts.
ERGONOMIC DESIGN
The design of your Speed Saw provides for easy handling
and maintaining proper control when cutting. It has been
designed to be comfortable and easy to grasp when
operating in different positions or at different angles.
ELECTRIC MOTOR
Your Speed Saw has 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 voltage drop of
more than 10 percent will cause a loss of power and the
motor will overheat. If your tool does not operate when
plugged into an outlet, double-check the power supply.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or
cause product damage.
GENERAL
BITS
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.
Get faster and more accurate cutting results by keeping
bits clean. Remove all accumulated build-up from bits
after each use. Replace bits when they become dull.
WARNING:
WARNING:
The bit flutes are sharp and should be handled with
caution.
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.
COLLET
From time to time, it also becomes necessary to clean
your collet and collet nut. To do so, simply remove collet
nut and collet from the shaft and clean the dust and chips
that have collected. Then return collet nut to its original
position. Tighten collet nut on collet without a bit installed.
When electric tools are used on fiberglass boats, sports
cars, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster, it has
been found that they are subject to accelerated wear and
possible premature failure, as the fiberglass chips and
grindings are highly abrasive to 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. If,
however, you do work with any of these materials, it is
extremely important that the tool is cleaned frequently by
blowing with an air jet.
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.
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.
