GENERAL
CUTTING
See Figure 7.
[] Rest the front of the saw base on the workpiece and
align cutting edge of the blade with the line on your
workpiece.
[] Start the saw and move it forward on the work surface.
[] Apply downward pressure to keep the saw steady
and only enough forward pressure to keep the blade
cutting.
Do not force the saw. Forcing the saw may overheat the
motor and break saw blades. Broken saw blades must be
discarded. Remove the broken portion of the saw blade
from the clamp and install a new saw blade.
ORBITAL
KNOB
WARNING:
Excessive side pressure on the blade
could result in broken blades or damage to the
material being cut.
TO iNCREASE
ORBITALSETTING
TO DECREASE
ORBITALSETTING
Fig. 7
ORBITAL MOTION
See Figure 7.
The blade of the saw cuts in orbital motion. This feature is
adjustable and provides faster, more efficient cutting. The
blade cuts through your work in the upstroke but does not
drag across your work in the downstroke. The higher settings should be used when fast cutting in soft material is
desired. The lower settings should be used when cutting
materials with more resistance.
STRAIGHT
CUT
See Figure 7.
A straight cut can be made by clamping a piece of wood
or straightedge to the workpiece and guiding the edge
of the saw against it. Make the cut from one direction
only. Do not cut halfway and complete the cut from the
opposite end.
SCROLL
CUTTING
See Figure 8.
Scroll cuts can be made with the jig saw by guiding the
direction of the cut with applied pressure on the handle.
Fig. 8
12
ANGLE CUTTING (BEVEL CUTTING)
See Figures 9 - 10.
Bevel cutting angles may be adjusted from 0 ° to 45 ° right
or left. Angles for cuts from 0 ° to 45 ° in 15 ° increments
are marked on a scale on both the left and right side of
the base. Notches on the rear of the base provide positive
stops at each of the above mentioned 15° increments.
A protractor is recommended when accurate cuts are
required.
PLUNGE
CUTTING
[] Remove the battery pack.
[] Using the 1/8 in. hex key provided, loosen the base
pivot screws until the base can be moved.
[] Slide base forward until base pivot screws can move
freely in slots in base.
[] Align the mark, on the base, of the desired angle with
the edge of the motor housing.
[] Once the desired angle is reached, slide base back
until tab on motor housing aligns with the appropriate
notch on rear of base.
NOTE: When making a set-up for accurate cuts with
a protractor, or for angles other than the preset 15 °
increments, the positive stop notches on the rear of the
base are not used.
[] Tighten the base pivot screws securely.
[] Return hex key to storage compartment.
[] Replace the battery pack.
NOTE: The wide slot in the base must be used when
making bevel cuts, scroll cuts, plunge cuts, and when
cutting metal.
TO MAKE A PLUNGE
See Figures 11 - 12.
_IL
WARNING:
To avoid loss of control, broken blades,
or damage to the material being cut, always use
extreme caution when making plunge cuts. We do
not recommend plunge cutting on materials other
than wood.
CUT
[] Mark the line of cut clearly on the workpiece.
[] Set the cutting angle at 0 ° and the orbital adjustment
knob to 0.
[] Drill a pilot hole though any point on the line of cut.
[] Using high speed, start the saw and slowly lower the
blade through the pilot hole into the workpiece until the
blade cuts through the wood.
[] Do not move the base forward until the blade cuts
entirely through the workpiece and the base is in
complete contact with the workpiece.
[] Move the saw forward to complete the opening.
[] Use only the seven teeth per inch blade for this type of
cut.
