immediately if it is worn, cut or damaged in any way.
Some dust created by power sanding sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals
known [to the State of California] to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
@ Lead from lead-based paints.
@ Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
@ Arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to
these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks
that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
THE
Safety is a combination of common sense, staying alert
and knowing how to use your band saw.

GUARDS
iN PLACE
and in working
order.
11. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. DO NOT wear loose
clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry which may get caught in moving parts. Non-slip
footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair covering
to contain long hair.
!2.
ALWAYS WEAR EYE
PROTECTION. Any band saw
can throw foreign objects into
the eyes which could cause
permanent eye damage.
ALWAYS wear Safety Goggles
(not glasses) that comply with
ANSI safety standard Z87.1. Everyday eyeglasses
have only impact-resistant lenses. They ARE NOT safety
glasses. Safety Goggles are available at Sears. NOTE:
Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1
could seriously hurt you when they break.
WP.AR YO_
13. WEAR A FACE MASK OR DUST MASK. Sawing and
sanding operations produce dust.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
14. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work
when practical. It's safer than using your hand and it
frees both hands to operate tool.
DONq" USE IN A DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. Don't
use power tools in damp or wet locations, or expose
them to rain. Keep work area well lighted.
15. D_SCONNECT TOOLS before servicing, and when
changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters,
and the like.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept at
a safe distance from the work area.
16. REDUCE
MAKE WORKSHOP KID-PROOF with padlocks,
master switches, or by removing starter keys:
8.
DON'T FORCE THE TOOL. It will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it was designed.
9.
USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force the tool or the
attachment to do a job for which it was not designed.
t0. USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your
extension 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 result in a drop in line voltage and loss of
power which wilt cause the tool to overheat. The table
on page 5 shows the correct size to use depending on
cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge
number, the heavier tSe cord.
THE R_SK OF UNINTENTIONAL
STARTING.
Make sure the switch is in OFF position before plugging
in.
17. USE RECOMMENDED
ACCESSORIES. Consult the
owner's manual for the recommended accessories. The
use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury
to persons.
18. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur
if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally
contacted.
t9. CHECK FOR 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 properiy and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving #_rts, 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 properly repaired

do not completely understand the grounding instructions, or
if you are not sure the tool is properly grounded,
USE ONLY 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept
the tool's plug. Repair or replace damaged or worn
cord immediately.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This circuit
must not be less than #12 wire and should be protected
with a 15 Amp time lag fuse. Before connecting the motor
to the power line, make sure the switch is in the OFF
position and the electric current is rated the same as the
current stamped on the motor nameplate, Running at a
Lower voltage will damage the motor.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has a receptacle
like the one illustrated in FIGURE A. FIGURE A shows a
3-prong electrical plug and receptacle that has a grounding
conductor. If a properly grounded receptacle is not available,
an adapter (FIGURE B) can be used to temporarily connect
this plug to a 2-contact ungrounded receptacle.
The temporary adapter should be installed by a qualified
technician. The adapter (FIGURE B) has a rigid lug
extending from it that MUST be connected to a permanent
earth ground, such as a properly grounded receptacle box.
THE TEMPORARY ADAPTER SHOULD BE USED ONLY
UNTIL A PROPERLY GROUNDED OUTLET CAN BE

BLADE SELECTION
(FIG.W)
CAUTION: Blade teeth are sharp. Use care whenhandling
a saw blade.
3AS!C SAW OPERATIONS
Sharp saw blades need little pressure for cutting. Steadily
move the workpiece against the blade without forcing it.
ON/OFF" SWITCH (FIG. U)
he keyed switch is intended to prevent unauthorized
_seof the band saw.
To turn the band saw ON insert the yellow key (1) into
the key slot (2) in the center of the switch.
'.. Push the key firmly into the slot, then push switch
to the ON position to start the band saw.
I. To turn the band saw OFF push the switch to the
down position.
Remove the yellow switch key, when the saw has come
to a complete stop, by gently pulling it outward.
To avoid twisting the blade, do not turn sharp corners or saw
around corners.
_emove the switch key whenever the saw is not in use.
_lace it in a safe place and out of reach of children.
CUTTING CURVES
When cutting curves, carefully turn the workpiece so the
blade follows without twisting. If the curve is so sharp that
you repeatedly back up and cut new kerf, use a narrower
blade, or a blade with more set (teeth further apart). When
a blade has more set, the workpiece turns easier but the
cut is rougher.
=IG. U
A band saw is basically a "curve-cutting" saw. It is not capable
of doing intricate inside cutting as can be done with a scroll
saw.
tt is also used for straight line operations such as crosscutting,
ripping, mitering, beveling, compound cutting, and resawing.
To avoid blade breakage, fire or other damage or injury,
NEVER use this band saw to cut ferrous metals.
When changing a cut, do not withdraw the workpiece from
the blade. The blade may get drawn off the wheels. To change
a cut, turn the workpiece and saw out through the scrap
material area.
When cutting long curves, make relief cuts as you go along.
_ENERAL
CUTTING
or your safety, read and understand all GENERAL and
}PECtFIC SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS on pages 3 - 5 before
lsing the band saw.
CIRCLE CUTTING (FIG. V)
1. Adjust the guide assembly to 1/8" above the workpiece.
2. Use both hands while feeding the work into the blade.
Hold the workpiece firmly against the table. Use gentle
pressure. Do not force the work, ALLOW the blade to cut.
3. The smallest diameter circle that can be cut is
determined by the width of the blade. For example,
a 1/4" wide blade will cut a minimum diameter of
approximately 1-1/2".
)o not force the workpiece against the blade. Light contact
}ermits easier cutting and prevents unwanted friction and
leating of the blade.
For cutting wood and similar materials with this bandsaw,
use blades 90" long in widths up to 1/2".
Common causes of blade breakage:
= Poor guide alignment and adjustment.
Forcing or twisting a wide blade around a short radius.
o
Feeding too fast.
°
Dull teeth or not enough set.
= Too much blade tension.
Setting top guide assembly too high above the
workpiece.
o Lumpy or improperly fir_ished braze or weld on the blade.
Continuous running of blade when not cutting.
