GENERAL SAFETY RULES
GEA002-3
WARNING:
Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power tool” in all of the
warnings listed below refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or batteryoperated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Work area safety
1.
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and
dark areas invite accidents.
2.
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.
3.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
Electrical safety
4.
5.
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.
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.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
7.
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 or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
8.
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.
Personal safety
9.
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.
10. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
11. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is
in the off-position before plugging in. Carrying
power tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
12. 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.
13. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
14. 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.
15. If devices are provided for the connection of
dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure
these are connected and properly used. Use of
these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
16. 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.
17. 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.
18. 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.
19. 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.
3
20. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power
tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused
by poorly maintained power tools.
21. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
22. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions and in
the manner intended for the particular type of
power tool, 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.
Battery tool use and care
23. Ensure the switch is in the off position before
inserting battery pack. Inserting the battery pack
into power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
24. Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one
type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when
used with another battery pack.
25. Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery
packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
26. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together
may cause burns or a fire.
27. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery, avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or
burns.
Service
28. 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.
29. Follow instruction for lubricating and changing
accessories.
30. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
GEB016-1
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product
(gained from repeated use) replace strict adherence
to jig saw safety rules. If you use this tool unsafely
or incorrectly, you can suffer serious personal injury.
1. Hold power tools by 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 make
exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the
operator.
2. Use clamps or another practical way to secure
and support the workpiece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against your body
leaves it unstable and may lead to loss of control.
3. Always use safety glasses or goggles. Ordinary
eye or sun glasses are NOT safety glasses.
4. Avoid cutting nails. Inspect workpiece for any
nails and remove them before operation.
5. Do not cut oversize workpiece.
6. Check for the proper clearance beyond the
workpiece before cutting so that the blade will
not strike the floor, workbench, etc.
7. Hold the tool firmly.
8. Make sure the blade is not contacting the workpiece before the switch is turned on.
9. Keep hands away from moving parts.
10. Do not leave the tool running. Operate the tool
only when hand-held.
11. Always switch off and wait for the blade to
come to a complete stop before removing the
blade from the workpiece.
12. Do not touch the blade or the workpiece immediately after operation; they may be extremely
hot and could burn your skin.
13. Do not operate the tool at no-load unnecessarily.
14. Some material contains chemicals which may
be toxic. Take caution to prevent dust inhalation and skin contact. Follow material supplier
safety data.
15. Always use the correct dust mask/respirator for

For internal cutouts without a lead-in cut from an edge, pre-drill a starting
hole 12 mm or more in diameter. Insert the blade into this hole to start
your cut.
002766
B) Plunge cutting
You need not bore a starting hole or make a lead-in cut if you carefully do
as follows.
(1) Tilt the tool up on the front edge of the base with the blade point
positioned just above the workpiece surface.
(2) Apply pressure to the tool so that the front edge of the base will not
move when you switch on the tool and gently lower the back end of
the tool slowly.
(3) As the blade pierces the workpiece, slowly lower the base of the
tool down onto the workpiece surface.
(4) Complete the cut in the normal manner.

12
002770
Finishing edges
To trim edges or make dimensional adjustments, run the blade lightly along the
cut edges.
Metal cutting
Always use a suitable coolant (cutting oil) when cutting metal. Failure to do so
will cause significant blade wear. The underside of the workpiece can be
greased instead of using a coolant.
