• Use this scroll saw to cut only wood, woodqike
products, plastics and nomferrous metals.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Check for:
• Alignment of moving parts.
• Binding of moving parts.
CAUTION:
This saw is NOT designed
for
cutting ferrous metals like iron or steel. When
cutting non-ferrous metals (brass, copper and
aluminum, etc.), metal shavings can react with
wood dust and start a fire. To avoid this:
• Broken pads.
• Stable mounting.
• Any other conditions that may affect the way
the saw works.
If any part is missing, bent or broken in any way,
or any electrical parts don't work properly, turn the
saw off and unplug the saw. REPLACE damaged,
missing or failed parts before using the saw again.
KEEP GUARD IN PLACE and in working order.
°
Disconnect any type of dust collecting
hose from the saw.
•
Remove all traces of wood dust
from on and around the saw.
•
Remove a,tl meta! shavings from on
or around the saw before sawing
wood again.

1. The scroll saw work table can be tilted to the left
for
bevel cutting
up to 45 ° from the 0 ° or
horizontal cutting position.
2. A bevel scale is provided under the work table as
a convenient reference for setting the approximate
table angle for bevel cutting.
When greater precision is required, make practice
cuts and adjust the table as necessary for your
requirements.

2. Use a small square to set the table at 90 ° to the

5. In order to cut, and to avoid uncontrollable lifting of
the workpiece, the teeth of the blades used on the
scroll saw should always point downward when installed

6. Install the blade by inserting one end of the blade
through the slot in the blade guard, then the access
hole in the table, until you can hook the blade pin in the

Double check to see that pins are properly located in
the slots.
Then turn the tension knob an additional two full turns

This amount of blade tension should do well for most
cutting operations and blades.

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 Z87.1
(shown on package). Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact resistant 0enses. They are not safety glasses.
Safety goggles are available at Sears Retail or Catalog
Stores. Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI
Z87.1 could seriously hurt you when they break.
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.
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move into
the blade.
