DOUBLE INSULATION
IMPORTANT
Double insulation is a concept in safety, in electric
power tools which eliminates the need for the usual
three-wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal
parts are isolated from intemal metal motor
components with protecting insulation, Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be performed only by a qualified service
technician. For sewica we suggest you retum the tool
to your nearest Sears Store for repair. Always use
odginal factory replacement parts when servicing.

RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION (Continued)
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM ClJTrlNG AREA.
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact-resistant lenses;
they are not safety glasses.
Keep hands away from blades. Do not reach
underneath work while blade is cutting. Do not
attempt to remove cut material while blade is
cutting:
PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust
mask if the cutting operation is dusty.
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOPROTECT YOUR HEARING, Wear hearing
protection during extended periods of operation.
SPHERE. Normal sparking of the motor could
ignite fumes.
DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by cord
or yank it to disconnect from receptacle. Keep
cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY
damaged, have repaired by authorized service
facility. Stay constantly aware of cord location
and keep it well away from the blade.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold
work. It's safer than using your hand and it frees
both hands to operate tool.
INSPECT EXTENSION
KEEP HANDLES 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.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for best and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories.
STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing and
use common sense. Do not operate tool when
you are tired. Do not rush.
DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments,
blades, bits, cutters, etc., all tools should be
disconnected from power supply.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use
of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged
should be carefully checked to determine that it
will operate properly and perform its irdended
function. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
mounting and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or other part that is
damaged should be propedy repaired or replaced by an authodzed service center unless
indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual.
KEYS AND
WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to see that
keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from
tool before turning it on.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Don't carry
plugged-in tool with finger on switch. Be sure
switch is off when plugging in.
MAKE SURE YOUR EXTENSION
DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT
TURN IT ON AND OFF. Have defective switches
replaced by an authorized service center.
CORD IS IN
GOOD CONDITION. When using an extension
cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry
the current your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in
loss of power and overheating. A wire gage size
(A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for an
extension cord 100 feet or less in length. A cord
exceeding 100 feet is not recommended. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller
the gage number, the heavier the cord.

PLUNGECUI-I'ING
Your saw has been designed with a flush cutting
feature which permits cutting close to floors or walls.
To fit your cutting requirements, cuts may be made in
either direction by reversing the position of the blade in
the blade clamp. See page 10 for instructions on
installing Flush Cutting Blade.
See Figure 9.
METAL
CUTTING
See Figure 11.
Fig. 11
Mark the line of cut cleady. Choose a convenient
starting point inside the area to be cut out and place
the tip of the blade over that point. Rest front edge of
base assembly on work and hold firmly in position,
Note: Make sure blade does not touch work until
motor reaches full speed, since this could cause loss
of control resulting in serious injury. With saw blade at
full cutting speed, slowly tilt saw downward until tip of
blade starts cutting work. After blade penetrates work,
tilt saw until blade is perpendicular to the work.
Metals such as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods, aluminum,
brass, and copper may be cut with your saw. Be
careful not to twist or bend the saw blade. Do not
force. We recommend cutting oil when cutting most
soft metals and steel. Cutting oil will also keep blades
cool, increase cutting action, and prolong blade life.
Never use gasoline since normal sparking of motor
could ignite fumes. Clamp the work firmly and cut
close to the clamping point to eliminate any vibration of
the work being cut. When cutting conduit pipe or angle
iron, clamp work in a vise if possible and cut close to
the vise. To cut thin sheet material, "sandwich" the
matedal between hardboard or plywood and clamp the
layers to eliminate vibration and matedal tearing.

intended to be repaired or replaced by the customer,
All other parts represent an important part of the
double insulation system and should be serviced only
by a qualified Sears service technician.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating, use an extension cord that is heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is
recommended for an extension cord 75 feet or less in
length. A wire gage (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is
recommended for an extension cord 75 - 100 feet in

It has been found that electric tools are subject to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure when
they are used on fiberglass boats, sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster. The
chips and grindings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electric tool parts such as bearings,
brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not
recommended that this tool be used for extended
CAUTION: Keep extension cords away from the
cutting area and position the cord so that it will
not get caught on lumber, tools, etc., during
cutting operation.
