AREA SAFETY
1, ALWAYS keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
dark areas invite accidents.
benches and
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. ALWAYS keep bystanders,
children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
ELECTRICAL
SAFETY
1. 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.
2. Double insulation D eliminates the need for the three-wire grounded power
cord and grounded power supply system, Applicable only to Class II
(double insulated) tools,
3. Before plugging in the too!, BE SURE that the outlet voltage supplied is
within the voltage marked on the tool's data plate, DO NOT use "AC only"
rated tools with a DC power supply.
4. ALWAYS 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.
5. If operating the power tool in damp locations is unavoidable,
ALWAYS
use a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter to supply power to your tool.
ALWAYS wear electrician's
rubber gloves and footwear in
damp conditions.
6. DO NOT expose power toots 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 to carry the tools or pull
the plug from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately.
Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.

I
ELECTRICALSAFETYcont.
8. When operating a power tool outside, ALWAYS use an outdoor extension
cord marked "W-A" or "W". These cords are rated for outdoor use and
reduce the risk of electric shock.
NOTE: The extension cord must have adequate wire size AWG
(American Wire Gauge) for safe, efficient use. Smaller gauge wires
have greater capacity (16 gauge w re has more capacity than 18 gauge wire),
PERSONAL
SAFETY
1. ALWAYS 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.
2. ALWAYS dress properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry. Pull
back long hair. Reep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
3. ALWAYS avoid accidental
starting. BE SURE switch is in the "Off"
position before plugging in. DO NOT carry tools with your finger on the
switch. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in tools that
have the switch in the "On" position invites accidents.
4. ALWAYS 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.
5. DO NOT overreach.
ALWAYS keep proper footing and balance at all
times. Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in
unexpected situations.
6. ALWAYS use safety equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hardhat, or hearing protection must be used for
appropriate
conditions.
4
TOOL USE AND CARE SAFETY
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 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 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. ALWAYS disconnect the plug from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories,or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
5. ALWAYS store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained
persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users,
6. ALWAYS 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.
7. ALWAYS 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.

SAFETY RULES FOR CIRCULAR SAWS
I
Keep your second hand on the auxiliary handle or motor housing.
I Z_ DANGERI
Keep hands away from cutting area and blade,
If both hands are holding the saw, they cannot be cut by the blade,
1. ALWAYS keep your body positioned to either side of the saw blade, but
not in 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 7-8).
2. DO NOT reach underneath
the work. The guard cannot protect you from
the blade beneath the work.
3. ALWAYS 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 handle. Make sure that it moves freely and
does not touch the blade or any other part in all angles and depths of cut.
4. ALWAYS 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.
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 the handle. 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 work properly in order to minimize body
exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
8. ALWAYS hold tool 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 the exposed metal parts of
the tool "live" and shock the operator.
9. 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.
10. 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 will cause loss of control.

SAFETYRULESFORCIRCULARSAWScont.
11. ALWAYSBE SUREthatall adjustingscrews and the blade holder are
fastened tightly BEFORE making a cut. Loose adjusting screws and holders
can cause the tool or blade to slip and loss of control may result.
12. When removing the blade from the tool, ALWAYS avoid contact with skin
and ALWAYS wear protective gloves when grasping the blade or accessory.
Accessories may be hot after prolonged use.
KICKBACK...WHAT
CAUSES IT AND WAYS TO PREVENT IT
The Causes of Kickback
1. Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound or misaligned saw blade,
which causes the uncontrolled saw to lift up and out of the workpiece and
towards the operator.
2. When the blade is pinched or bound tightly by the kerr closing down, the
blade stalls and the motor reaction drives the unit rapidly back towards
the operator.
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.
4. Kickback is a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or
conditions.It can be avoided by taking the proper precautions, as listedbelow.
Ways to Prevent
Kickback
1. ALWAYS maintain a firm grip with both 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.
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. ALWAYS check and be
ready to take corrective action to eliminate the cause of blade binding.
3. When restarting the saw in the workpiece, ALWAYS 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.
4. ALWAYS support large panels to minimize the risk of blade pinching
and KICKBACK.
Large panels tend to sag under their own weight.
Supports MUST be placed under the panel on both sides, near the line
of cut and near the edge of the panel.
7
Ways to Prevent Kickback cont.
5. DO NOT use a dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened or improperly set
blades produce narrow kerr which causes excessive friction, blade
binding and KICKBACK.
6. ALWAYS be sure that the blade depth and adjusting locking levers are
bght and secure BEFORE making a cut. If blade adjustment shifts while
cutting, it may cause binding and KICKBACK.
7. ALWAYS 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.
8. ALWAYS have saw blade at full speed before contacting workpiece.
9. ALWAYS hold tool by Insulated grtpping surfaces when performing an
operation where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or Its own
cord. Contact with a 'live" wire will make the exposed metal parts of the tool
"live" and shock the operator.

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.
BLADE
GUARD
SYSTEM
The lower blade guard, attached to your circular saw, is there for your
protection and safety. It should NEVER 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.
/_ DANGER: When sawing through a workpieee, the lower blade guard I
does not cover the blade on the underside of the workpiece. Since the blade
is exposed on the underside of the workpiece, ALWAYS keep your hands and
fingers away from the cutting area. Any part of your body coming in contact
with the moving blade will result in serious injury (see Fig. 3).
I
Z_ 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 setting before using. NOTE: The guard is operatingproperly
when it
moves freely and then readily returns to the closed position. If, for any reason.
your lower blade guard does not close freely, take it to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for service before using it.

MAKING CROSS CUTS OR RIP CUTS
1. When making cross or rip cuts, align
your line of cut with the outer blade
_suide notch on the base of the saw
ee Fig. 12).
2. Since blade thicknesses vary, ALWAYS
make a trial cut in scrap material along
the guideline to determine how much,
if any the guideline must be offset to
get an accurate cut.
MAKING BEVEL CUTS
1. Your saw can be adjusted to cut at any
angle between 0 ° and 45 °. When
making 45 ° bevel cuts, there is a notch
in the saw base to help you line up the
blade with the line of cut (See Fig. 13).
2. Align your line of cut with the inner
blade guide notch on the base of the
saw when making 45 ° bevel cuts.
3. Since blade thicknesse can vary and
different angles require different settings,
ALWAYS make a trial cut in scrap
materials along a guideline to determine
how much you should offset the guideline
on the board to be cut.
4. When making a bevel cut ALWAYS
your saw firmly with both hands
(See Fig. 14).

2. While holding the lower blade guard by the handle, firmly rest the front of the
shoe flat against the workpiece with the rear handle raised so the blade does
not touch the workpiece (See Fig, 16).
3. Squeeze the trigger switch to start the
saw. ALWAYS let the blade reach full
speed, then slowly lower the blade onto
the workpiece until the shoe is flat
against the workpiece.
4. After you complete the cut, release the
trigger switch and allow the blade to

RIP CUTS
ALWAYS use a guide when making long or wide rip cuts with your saw. You can
use either a straight edge or use the Optional Rip/Edge Guide with a 5-inch scale
(sold separately at your local Sears store or Craftsman outlet).
Using a Straight Edge
You can make an efficient rip guide
by clamping a straight edge to your
workpiece. (See Fig.17)
1. Secure the workpiece.
2. Use C-clamps to firmly attach
edge to the workpiece.

DOUBLE INSULATION
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power tools, which
eliminates the need for the standard 3-wire grounded power cord. All
exposed metal parts are isolated from the internal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
The following recommended accessories are currently available at your local
Sears Store.
EXTENSION
CORDS
Sears offers a large selection of extension cords that help extend your working
range. The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of power. To keep
the loss at a minimum and to prevent overheating, use an extension cord that
is heavy enough to carry the current that the tool will draw.
A wire gauge (AWG) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension cord 25
feet or less in length. When working outdoors ALWAYS use an extension cord
that is suitable for outdoor use. The cord's jacket will be marked WA.
