before using this circular saw. Failure to follow all instructions may result in
hazardous radiation exposure, electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
PERSONAL SAFETY cont.
9. USE SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
10. DO NOT USE ON A LADDER or unstable support. Stable footing on a solid surface
enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered workbenches 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 bystanders, children and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
4. Make your workshop childproof with padlocks and master switches. Lock
tools away when not in use.
5. MAKE SURE the work area has ample lighting so you can see the work and that
there are no obstructions that will interfere with safe operation BEFORE using your saw.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. KNOW your cordless saw. Read the operator's manual carefully. Learn the saw's
applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards related to this tool.
2. STAY ALERT, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating
a power tool.
3. 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.
4. DRESS properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry. Pull back long hair. Keep
your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Air vents often cover moving
parts and should also be avoided. Loose clothing, jewelry or long hair can be caught
in moving parts.
5. AVOID accidental starting. Be sure switch is in “OFF” position before inserting the battery
pack. DO NOT carry tools with your finger on the switch. Carrying tools with your finger on
the switch or inserting battery pack in tools that have the switch in the “ON” position
invites accidents.
TOOL USE AND CARE SAFETY
! WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions before operating
this tool. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock,
fire and /or serious personal injury.
1. ALWAYS use clamps or other practical ways 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.
2. DO NOT force the tool. Use the correct tool and blade for your application. The
correct tool and blade will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
3. DO NOT use the 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.
4. Remove the battery pack from the saw before making any adjustments, changing
accessories or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the tool accidentally.
5. NEVER leave the tool running. ALWAYS turn it off. DO NOT leave the tool until the
blade comes to a complete stop.
6. STORE idle tools out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
7. ALWAYS remove battery pack and store separately when saw is not being used.
8. 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 the other. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause sparks, burns, or a fire.
9. 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.
6. REMOVE adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool “ON”. A wrench that is left
attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
10. 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.
7. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
11. USE ONLY accessories that are recommended for this tool. Accessories that may be
suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.
8. ALWAYS SECURE YOUR WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work when practical. It is
safer than using your hand and frees both hands to operate tool.
12. Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Always use a
clean cloth when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of loss of control and deterioration of the plastic enclosure of the circular saw.

SERVICE SAFETY
CAUTION: Blades coast after saw is switched off.
1. KEEP your body positioned to either side of the saw blade and not in direct
line with the saw blade. Kickback could cause the saw to jump backwards. (See
“Kickback…What Causes It and Ways to Prevent It” on pages 18 and 19).
2. DO NOT reach underneath the work. The guard cannot protect you from the blade
beneath the workpiece.
! DANGER: When sawing through a workpiece, the lower blade guard DOES
NOT cover the blade on the underside of the workpiece (Pg. 16 Fig. 4). ALWAYS keep
your hands and fingers away from the cutting area.
3. CHECK lower guard for proper closing BEFORE each use. DO NOT operate the saw
if the lower guard does not move freely and close instantly. Never clamp or tie the
lower guard in the open position. If the saw is accidentally dropped, the lower guard may
be bent. Raise the lower guard with the retracting lever. The guard is operating properly
when it moves freely, does not touch the blade or any other part in all angles and depths
of cut, and readily returns to the closed position.
4. CHECK the operation and condition of the lower guard spring. If the guard and the
spring are not operating properly, they MUST BE serviced before use. The lower
guard may operate sluggishly, due to damaged parts, gummy deposits, or a buildup of
debris. DO NOT operate your saw until the damage has been repaired or replaced.
5. The lower guard should be retracted manually ONLY for making special cuts, such
as pocket or compound cuts. ALWAYS raise the lower guard by retracting its lever.
As soon as the blade enters the material, the lower guard MUST be released. For all
other sawing, the lower guard should operate automatically.
6. ALWAYS make sure that the lower guard is covering the blade BEFORE placing the
saw down on a work bench or floor. An unprotected moving blade will cause the saw to
walk backwards, cutting whatever is in its path. Make note of the time it takes for the blade
to stop spinning after the switch is released.
7. NEVER hold the piece being cut in your hands or across your legs. It is important to
support the workpiece properly in order to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss
of control.
1. If any part of this cordless saw is missing or should break, bend, or fail in any
way; or should any component fail to perform properly: have the missing, damaged
or failed parts replaced BEFORE resuming operation.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS cont.
SAFETY RULES FOR CORDLESS CIRCULAR SAWS cont.
8. HOLD TOOL by insulated gripping surfaces (handles) when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will make
the exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.
9. ALWAYS clamp the workpiece securely so it will not move when making the cut.
10. When ripping, ALWAYS USE a rip fence or straight edge guide. This improves the
accuracy of the cut and reduces the chance of the blade binding.
11. ALWAYS USE blades that have the correct size and shape (diamond vs. round) arbor
holes. Blades that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw will run erratically and
cause loss of control.
12. NEVER use damaged or incorrect blade washers or bolts. The blade washers and bolts
were specially designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety of operation.
13. NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO NOT STACK more than one workpiece
on the worktable at a time.
14. AVOID awkward operations and hand positions where a sudden slip could cause your
hand to move into the blade.
15. NEVER reach into the cutting path of the blade.
16. ONLY USE the specifically listed battery pack and charging stand listed on page 6 of
this manual. Use of any other battery pack or charging stand / transformer can create
risk of injury and fire.
17. Cordless tools do not have to be plugged into an electrical outlet; therefore, they are
always in operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards when not using your
battery operated tool or when changing accessories. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
18. Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of
explosion and possible injury.
19. Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Never use a battery pack or charging
stand/transformer that has been dropped or received a sharp blow. A damaged battery
pack is subject to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged battery pack
immediately.
20. Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the presence of a source of ignition,
such as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of personal injury, never use any cordless product in
the presence of open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris and chemicals. If
exposed, flush with water immediately.
21. Do not charge battery in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock.
22. For best results, your battery should be charged in a location where the temperature is more
than 50°F but less that 80°F. Do not store battery outside or in vehicles.

7. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension cord must be
used, make sure: a) That pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size and
shape as those on the transformer, b) That extension cord is properly wired and in good
electrical condition, and c) That you use a proper extension cord. ONLY use cords
listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Other extension cords can cause a drop in line
voltage, resulting in a loss of power and overheating of charging stand/transformer. An
AWG (American Wire Gauge) size of at least 14-gauge is recommended for an extension
cord of 25-ft. or less in length. Use 12-gauge for an extension cord of 50-ft.
Extension cords 100-ft. or longer are not recommended.
8. INSPECT tool cords for damage. Do not operate charging stand with a damaged cord or
transformer, which could cause shorting and electric shock. Have damaged tool cords

! WARNING: A 5 1/2-inch blade is the maximum blade capacity of your saw. A
larger than 5 1/2-inch blade will come in contact with the blade guards. Also, NEVER use
a blade that is so thick that it prevents the outer blade washer from engaging with the
flat side of the spindle. Blades that are too large or too thick can result in an accident
causing serious injury.
SAW BLADES
All saw blades need to be kept clean,
sharp and properly set in order to cut
efficiently. Using a dull blade places a
heavy load on the saw and increases
the danger of kickback. Keep extra
blades on hand, so sharp blades are
always available. Gum and wood pitch
hardened on the blade slows the saw
down. Use gum and pitch remover,
hot water or kerosene to remove them.
DO NOT use gasoline.

The Causes of Kickback cont.
1. Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound or
misaligned saw blade, which causes an uncontrolled
saw to lift up and out of the workpiece and toward
the operator.
2. 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 towards the operator.
4. Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece can cause
Kickback.

be altered for any reason. If it becomes
damaged or begins to return slowly or
sluggishly, DO NOT operate your saw until the damage has been repaired or replaced.
ALWAYS leave the guard in its correct operating position when using the saw.
! CAUTION: NEVER use the saw when the guard is not operating properly. The
guard should be checked for correct operation before each use. If you drop your saw,
check the lower blade guard and bumper for damage at all depth settings before using.
NOTE: The guard is operating properly when it moves freely and then readily returns to
the closed position. If for any reason your lower blade guard and bumper does not close
freely, take the saw to your nearest Sears Repair Center for service before using it.

3. 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. This causes the blade to
climb out of the kerf and jump back towards the
operator.

7. Kickback is a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect
operating procedures or conditions. It can be avoided
by taking the proper precautions, on page 19.
Ways to Help Prevent Kickback (Fig. 6)
! DANGER: ALWAYS release trigger switch immediately if the blade binds or the
saw stalls. Kickback could cause you to lose control of the saw. Loss of control can lead
to serious injury.
1. ALWAYS maintain a firm grip with both
(see Fig. 6) hands on the saw and position your
body and arms to allow you to resist Kickback
forces. Kickback forces can be controlled by the
operator, if the proper precautions are taken.
Fig. 6
2. If the blade is binding, or when you are
interrupting a cut for any reason, ALWAYS
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.
CHECK and take corrective action to eliminate
the cause of blade binding.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK (Fig. 8 and 8a)
3. Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails before cutting. Never saw into a knot or nail.
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low charge condition to prevent possible
problems. Therefore, you should charge overnight prior to use.
4. DO NOT cut warped or wet lumber. (see Fig. 5a)
5. ALWAYS support large panels to minimize the risk of blade pinching and Kickback. Large
panels tend to sag under their own weight (see Fig. 5a). Supports MUST be placed under
the panel, one near the line of cut and one near the edge of the panel (see Fig. 5).
6. When restarting the saw in the workpiece, CENTER the blade in the kerf and check to be
sure that the saw teeth are not engaged into the material. If the saw blade is binding, it may
walk up or Kickback from the workpiece when the saw is restarted.
7. DO NOT use a dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened, improperly set, or gummed-up blades
produce narrow kerf which causes excessive friction, blade binding and Kickback.
8. USE EXTRA CAUTION when making a “Pocket Cut” into existing walls or other blind areas.
The protruding blade may cut objects that can cause Kickback.
9. KEEP the blade at the correct depth setting. The depth setting should not exceed 1/4-inch
below the material being cut (see Fig. 6a). BE SURE that the blade depth and adjusting
locking levers are tight and secure BEFORE making a cut. If blade adjustment shifts while
cutting it may cause binding and Kickback.

CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
MAKING DEPTH-OF-CUT ADJUSTMENTS (Fig. 11 and 11a)
When using your tool continuously, the batteries in your battery pack will become hot.
You should let a hot battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before
attempting to recharge.
ALWAYS use the correct blade depth setting. The correct blade depth setting for all cuts should
not be more than 1/4-inch below the material being cut (see Fig. 4). Allowing more depth will
increase the chance of kickback and cause the cut to be rough. Your saw is equipped with a
depth-of-cut scale to help obtain depth-of-cut accuracy. The depth-of-cut scale is located
on the inside back of the upper blade guard.
NOTE: A hot battery pack only occurs when prolonged continuous use of your circular saw
causes the batteries to become hot. It does not occur with typical use. Within the warranty
period, if the battery pack becomes hot with typical use, return the charging
stand / transformer, and battery pack to your nearest Sears store or other Craftsman outlet
for free replacement.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS cont.
WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions in this
manual before using this drill / driver. Failure to follow all instructions may result
in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered workbenches 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 bystanders, children and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
4. Make your workshop childproof with padlocks and master switches. Lock tools
away when not in use.
TOOL USE AND CARE SAFETY
! WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions before
operating this drill / driver. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result
in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
1. ALWAYS use clamps or other practical ways 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.
2. DO NOT force the tool. Use the correct tool and accessory bit for your application.
The correct tool and bit will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
3. DO NOT use the tool if trigger switch does not turn it “On” or “Off”. Any tool that
cannot be controlled with the trigger switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
5. MAKE SURE the work area has ample lighting so you can see the work and that
there are no obstructions that will interfere with safe operation BEFORE using your
cordless drill / driver.
4. REMOVE the battery pack from the drill / driver or place the forward /reverse
selector switch with power lock-off in the “Lock Off” position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
PERSONAL SAFETY
5. STORE idle tools out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
1. KNOW your cordless drill / driver. Read the operator’s manual carefully. Learn the tool’s
applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards related to this tool.
6. ALWAYS remove battery pack and store separately when drill / driver
is not being used.
2. STAY ALERT, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating
a power tool.
7. 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 the other. Shorting the battery terminals
together may cause burns to skin, sparks or a fire.
3. DO NOT use power tools 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.
4. DRESS properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry. Pull back long hair. Keep
your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothing, or long hair
can be caught in moving parts. Air vents often cover moving parts and should
also be avoided.
5. AVOID accidental starting. Be sure trigger switch is in the “Locked OFF” position
before inserting battery pack. DO NOT carry tools with your finger on the trigger switch.
Carrying tools with your finger on the trigger switch or inserting the battery pack in tools
that have the switch in the “FORWARD” OR “REVERSE” position invites accidents.
6. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing
and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
7. ALWAYS SECURE YOUR WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work when practical.
It is safer than using your hand and frees both hands to operate tool.
8. DO NOT USE ON A LADDER or unstable support. Stable footing on a solid surface
enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
4
8. MAINTAIN tools with care. Keep cutting tools such as twist drill bits sharp and
clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are
easier to use and control.
9. 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.
10. USE ONLY accessories that are recommended for this tool. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.
See page 25 for accessories.
11. Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Always use
a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of loss of control and deterioration of the plastic enclosure of the drill / driver.

SAFETY RULES FOR BATTERY CHARGING STAND / TRANSFORMER cont.
13. Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the presence of a source of
ignition, such as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of personal injury, never use any
cordless product in the presence of open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris
and chemicals. If exposed, flush with water immediately.
14. Do not charge battery pack in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of electric shock.
3. Do not abuse the cord on the battery charging stand / transformer. Never carry the
charging stand / transformer by its power cord. Never pull the power cord to remove the
transformer from the power outlet. Damage to the cord or charging stand / transformer could
occur and create an electric shock hazard. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of
electric shock.
15. For best results, your battery pack should be charged in a location where the temperature
is more than 50°F but less that 80°F. Do not store battery outside or in vehicles.
4. Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, come in
contact with sharp edges or moving parts, heat, oil, or otherwise subjected to
damage or stress. This will reduce the risk of accidental falls, which could cause injury,
and damage to the cord which could result in electric shock.
16. Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, battery leakage may occur.
If liquid comes in contact with your skin, wash immediately with soap and water,
then neutralize with lemon juice or vinegar. If liquid gets into your eyes, flush
them with clean water for at least 10 minutes, then seek immediate medical
attention. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
17. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them frequently and use them to instruct
others who may use this tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these
instructions also to prevent misuse of the product and possible injury.
SAFETY RULES FOR BATTERY CHARGING STAND / TRANSFORMER
! WARNING: READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to

NOTE: Before using battery charging stand / transformer, read all instructions
and cautionary markings in this manual, on battery charging stand / transformer,
battery pack, and drill / driver using battery pack to prevent misuse of the
products and possible injury or damage.
!
CAUTION: USE ONLY the specifically designated battery charging
stand / transformer that was supplied with this drill / driver when charging the
battery pack. The use of any other battery charging stand / transformer could
damage the battery pack, and create a hazardous condition. See page 6.
! CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the battery
charging stand / transformer and battery pack, charge only the specifically
designated battery pack that was included with this drill / driver and charging
stand / transformer. Charging other types of battery packs may cause them to
burst, causing personal injury and damage.
1. Do not use the battery charging stand / transformer outdoors or expose to wet or
damp conditions. Water entering charging stand will increase the risk of electric shock.
2. Use of an attachment with this battery charging stand / transformer that is not
recommended may result in a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
8
5. Keep cord and charging stand / transformer away from heat to prevent damage to
housing or internal parts.
6. Do not let gasoline, oils, petroleum-based products, etc. come in contact with
plastic parts. They contain chemicals which can damage, weaken or destroy plastic.
7. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension cord must be
used, make sure: a) That pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size and
shape as those on the transformer, b) That extension cord is properly wired and in good
electrical condition, and c) That you use a proper extension cord. ONLY use cords
listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Other extension cords can cause a drop in line
voltage, resulting in a loss of power and overheating of charging stand/transformer. An
AWG (American Wire Gauge) size of at least 14-gauge is recommended for an extension
cord of 25-ft. or less in length. Use 12-gauge for an extension cord of 50-ft.
Extension cords 100-ft. or longer are not recommended.
8. INSPECT tool cords for damage. Do not operate charging stand with a damaged cord or
transformer, which could cause shorting and electric shock. Have damaged tool cords
repaired at a Sears Service Center.
9. Do not operate charging stand / transformer if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped,

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK (Fig. 5 and 5a)
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low charge condition to prevent
possible problems. Therefore, you should charge overnight prior to use.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they are charged.
Allow several cycles (operation followed by recharging) for them to become
fully charged.
FORWARD
REVERSE
POWER LOCK-OFF
The direction of bit rotation is forward or reverse and is controlled by a selector switch
located above and to the rear of the trigger switch. When holding the drill / driver in the
normal operating position, (and viewed from the back of the drill/driver see Figs. 3, 3a
and 3b), the selector switch should be positioned (pushed) all the way to the LEFT,
for FORWARD or normal drilling / driving, and positioned (pushed) all the way to the
RIGHT for REVERSE to remove drill bits and back out screws.
The third position for the selector switch is located in the CENTER (Fig. 3b). This position keeps
the trigger switch from working, locking the power “OFF”. Setting the selector switch in the “OFF”
or CENTER position helps reduce the possibility of accidental starting when the tool is not in use.
! CAUTION: To prevent gear damage, always allow the chuck to come to a
complete stop before changing the direction of rotation.

1. Install the battery pack into the drill / driver.
2. Push the forward /reverse selector switch with power lock-off to the forward position.
3. For drilling in WOOD, use twist drill bits, spade bits and auger bits.
4. For drilling in METAL, use high speed twist drill bits. Use a cutting lubricant when drilling
in metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass, which should be drilled dry.
5. For drilling in MASONRY, use carbide tipped bits or masonry bits. A smooth, even flow of
dust indicates the proper drilling speed.
6. Always apply pressure in a straight line with
Fig. 15
the bit. If necessary, use the bubble levels
to drill straight into the workpiece. Use enough
pressure to keep the bit biting, but do not
push hard enough to stall the motor or
deflect the bit.
7. Hold drill / driver firmly to control the twisting
action of the drill / driver.
8. Move the drill bit into the workpiece, applying
only enough pressure to keep the bit cutting.
Do not force the drill or apply side pressure
to elongate a hole. Let the tool do the work.
9. When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a
center punch to mark the desired hole
location. This will prevent the drill bit from
slipping off-center as the hole is started.
10. If the drill/driver stalls, or the bit jams in the
workpiece, it is usually because the
drill / driver is being overloaded. RELEASE
TRIGGER SWITCH IMMEDIATELY and
remove bit from workpiece. Determine cause
of stalling. DO NOT PRESS TRIGGER OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO START
A STALLED DRILL / DRIVER – THIS COULD DAMAGE THE DRILL / DRIVER.
11. Keep the motor running when pulling the bit back out of a drillled hole. This will help
prevent jamming.
