• Use model 113248212 to cut and sand only wood,
wood like products and plastics.
CAUTION: To avoid blade breakage, fire or other]
damage to the saw, NEVER use model 113.248212
to cut metals.
° Use model 113248322 to cut and sand only wood,
wood like products, plastics and non-ferrous metals
CAUTION: Model 113_248322 is NOT designed for'
cutting or' sanding ferrous metals like iron or steel.
When cutting or sanding non-ferrous
metals
(brass, copper' and aluminum, etc.), metal shavings
can react with wood dust and start a fire.
* Noise levels vary widely= To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using saw for'
hours at a time.
J
° For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with the
safety goggles.
Inspect your' workpiece.
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut
Use extra caution with large, very small or' awkward
workpieces:
To avoid this:
Disconnect any type of dust collecting
from the saw.
hose
Remove all traces of wood dust from inside the
saw.
.
* Wear nonslip footwear
° Roll long sleeves above the elbow
to do a job it was designed to do..
.
• Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches).. They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts
* Tie back long hair
- USE THE RIGHT TOOL.. Don't force tool or attachment
•
Any power saw can throw foreign objects into the eyes..
This can cause perrnanent eye damage. Wear safety
goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI Z871
(shown on package) Everyday eyeglasses have only_
impact resistance lenses. They are not safety glasses.
Safety goggles are available at Sears retail catalog
stores Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI
Z87.1 could seriously hurt you when they break
Remove all metal shavings from inside the saw
before sawing wood again.
• Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc.)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not held
down to the table top
NEVER use another person as a substitute for a table
extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that
is longer or wider than the basic saw table, or to help
feed, support or pull the workpieceo
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it will not slip and pinch the blade.. A piece of
molding for example, must lie flat or be held by a fixture
of jig that will not let it twist, rock or slip while being cut,.
Dress for safety
Properly support round material such as dowel rods, or
tubing. They have a tendency to roll during a cut,
causing the blade to "bite". To avoid this, always use a
"V" block or' clamp the work to the miter gage..
° Cut only one workpiece at a time.
• Cleareverythingexceptthe workpieceandrelated

Before freeing any jammed material:
, Turn switch "OFF"
on
Plan the way you will hold the workpiece from start
to finish,
Do not hand hold pieces so small that your fingerswiil go
under the blade guard Use jigs or fixtures to hold the
work and keep your hands away from the blade
SECURE WORK
Use clamps to hold work when
practical, if'soften safer than using your hand, and frees
both hands to operate the tool
,
Remove switch key
•
Unplug the saw
• Wait for all moving paris to stop
When backing up the workpiece, the blade may bind
in the kerf (cut)_ This is usually caused by sawdust
clogging up the kerr or because the blade comes out
of the guides_ If this happens:
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move into the
blade or sanding surface
,
DON'T OVERREACH
•
Keep good footing and balance
Turn switch"OFF"
• Remove switch key
Unplug saw
• Wait for all moving parts to stop
,
WHENEVER
Remove band saw cover

• Stick llat blade screwdriver or wedge into the kerr
WARNING: Don't let familiarity (gained from frequent use of your band saw) cause a careless
mistake. A careless fraction of asecond isenough
to cause a severe Injury,
Before starting your cut, watch the saw while it runs if
it makes an unfamiliar noise or vibrates a lot, stop
immediately Turn the saw off Unplug the saw Do not
restart until finding and correcting the problem
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY.
Keep all visitors a safe
distance from the saw_ Make sure bystanders are clear
of the saw and workpiece
DON'T FORCE TOOL It will do the job better and safer
at its designed rate. Feed the workpiece into the saw
blade only fast enough to let it cut without bogging down
or binding.
• Turn the upper wheel by hand while backing up the
workpiece,,
Before removing loose pieces from the table, turn saw
off and wait for all moving paris to stop,

4 Frequent "blowing" of fuses or tripping of circuit breakors may result if:
a Motor is overloaded - Overloading can occur if you
feed too rapidly,.
b Low Voltage - Although the motor is designed for
operation on the voltage and frequency specified on
the motor nameplate, normal loads will be handled
safely on voltages not more than 10% above or
below the nameplate voltage, Heavy loads, however,
require voltage at motor terminals equals the voltage specified on nameplate
5,, Motor troubles may be traced to loose or incorrect connections, overload, reduced input voltage (such as
small size wire in the supply circuit) or to overly long
supply circuit wire Always check the connections, the
load and the supply circuit whenever motor fails to perform satisfactorily Check wire size and length with the
Wire Size Chart below,

Adapter
NOTE: The adapter illustrated is for use only if you
already have a properly grounded 2-prong receptacle
NOTE: Make sure the proper extension cord is used and
is in good condition

Safety
Protection
Note: To avoid motor damage this motor should be blown
out or vacuumed frequently to keep sawdust from interfering with normal motor ventilation,
1,,This tool should be connected to a 120v, 15 amp
branch circuit with a 15 amp fuse or circuit breaker
Failure to use the proper size fuse can result in damage to the motor,,
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power, To keep this to a minimum and to prevent overheating and motor burn-out, use the table below to determine the minimum wire size (AW,G,) extension cord,,
Use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which
accepts the tools plug

can react with wood dust and start a fire.
To avoid this:
•
Disconnect
any
from the sawn
type
of dust
collecting
hose
o Remove all traces of wood dust from inside the
saw.
o Remove all metal shavings
before sawing wood again,
from inside the saw
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
o Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not held
down to the table top..
NEVER use another person as a substitute for a table
extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that
is longer or wider than the basic saw table, or to help
feed, support or pull the workpiece.
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it wile not slip and pinch the blade, A piece of
molding for example, must lie flat or be held by a fixture
of jig that will not let it twist, rock or slip while being cut,
Properly support round material such as dowel rods, or
tubing, They have a tendency to roll during a cut,
causing the blade to "bite" To avoid this, always use a
"V" block or clamp the work to the miter gage,
° Cut only one workpiece at a time
° Clear everything except the workpiece and related
support devices off the table before turning the saw.
Plan the way you will hold the workpiece
to finish,
Dress for safety
Any power saw can throw foreign objects into the eyes
This can cause permanent eye damage Wear safety
goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI Z87I
(shown on package). Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact resistance lenses They are not safety glasses
Safety goggles are available at Sears retail catalog
stores Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI
Z87 1 could seriously hurt you when they break
from
start
Do not hand hold pieces so small that your finger will go
under the blade guard Use jigs or fixtures to hold the
work and keep your hands away from the blade
SECURE WORK Use clamps to hold work when practical It's often safer than using your hand, and frees both
hands to operate the tool.
° Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts,
° Wear nonstip footwear.
o Tie back long hair,,
° Roll long sleeves above the elbow

Before starting your cut, watch the saw while it runs If
it makes an unfamiliar noise or vibrates a lot, stop
immediately. Turn the saw off Unplug the saw Do not
restart until finding and correcting the problem.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY.
Keep all visitors a safe
distance from the saw Make sure bystanders are clear

WARNING: For your safety, comply with all the
safety instructions on pages 2- 5 before using the
band saw.
With the special 1/16-inch scrolling blade and nonmetallic blade guides, the band saw is capable of cutting
extremely fine curves in thin material.. The non-metallic
blade guides are made from a special self-lubricating
material that decreases friction between the blade and
guide blocks as well as preventing the blade from
twisting
By using the special blade guides and 1/16-inch scroll
blade, it is possible to do almost everything a scroll saw
can accomplish except interior or piercing cuts The
band saw has the additional advantage of cutting much
faster than the ordinary scroll saw
