RULES
FOR, SAFE
OPERATION
(Continued)
.
When us(rig 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 18 is recommended for an extension cord
binding of moving pans, breakage of pans, saw
stability, mounting and any other conditions that
may affect its operation. A guardor other part
that is damaged must be properly repaired or
replaced by a qualified service technician at a
Sears store to avoid risk of personal injury.
25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.
DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade
or cutter against the direction of rotation of the
blade or cutter only.
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and replace if damaged.
M
DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry. They can get caught and draw you into
moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended. Also wear protective
hair covering to contain long hair.
•
NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not
leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.
•
USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Use the right
blade size, style and cutting speed for the
material and the type of cut. Blade teeth should
point down toward the table.
KEEP BLADES CLEAN, SHARP AND WITH
SUFFICIENT SET. Sharp blades minimize
stalling and kickback.
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH
SIDE SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT safety
glasses.
DO NOT REMOVE THE SAW'S BLADE
GUARDS. Never operate the saw with any guard
or cover removed. Make sure all guards are
operating properly before each use.
PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust
mask if the cutting operation is dusty.
PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing
protection during extended periods of operation.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA.
Do not hand hold pieces so small that your
fingers go under the blade guard. Do not reach
underneath work or in blade cutting path with
your hands and fingers for any reason.
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.
DO NOT OVERREACH.

• AINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for better and safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and
changing accessories.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY and if
damaged, have repaired by a qualified service
technician at a Sears store. Stay constantly
aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the moving blade.
DISCONNECT ALL TOOLS. When not in use,
before servicing, or when changing attachments,

•
ALWAYS SUPPORT LARGE WORK PIECES
while cutting. To minimize risk of blade pinching
and kickback, always support large workpieces.
Saw may slip, walk or slide while cutting large or
heavy boards.
NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could
occur if the tool is tipped or if the blade is unintentionally contacted.
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 intended
function. Check for alignment of moving parts,

EXTENSION
GROUNDING
CORDS
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept
the tool's plug. When using a power tool at a considerable distance from the power source, use an extension cord heavy enough to carry the current that the
tool will draw. An undersized extension cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of
power and causing the motor to overheat. Use the
chart provided below to determine the minimum wire
size required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL)
should be used.
Length of Extension Cord
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electdc current
to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
cedes and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a dsk of electdc
shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer
surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is
the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or
replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grcunding conductor to
a live terminal.
Wire Size (A.W.G.)
Up to 25 feet
18
26-100 feet

When working with the tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. This is
indicated by the letters WA on the cord's jacket.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel
if the grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properly grounded.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
_i,
CAUTION: Keep the cord away from the cutting
area and position the cord so that it will not be
caught on lumber, tools, or other objects during
cutting operations.
ELECTRICAL
INSTRUCTIONS
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a cimuit that has an
outlet like the one shown in Figure 1. It also has a
grounding pin like the one shown.
CONNECTION
Your Sears Craftsman Band Saw is powered by a
precision built electric motor. It should be connected
to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only
(normal household current). Do not operate this tool
on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop will
cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the saw does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double check the power supply.

BASIC
OPERATION
OF THE
BAND
Turn saw off, remove switch key, and unplug
cord before moving the saw.
SAW
A band saw is basically a "curve cutting" machine. It
can also be used for straight-line cutting operations
such as cross cutting, ripping, mitering, beveling,
compound cutting, and resawing. It is not capable of
making inside or non through cuts.
Avoid injury from jams, slips or thrown
pieces:
•
Choose right size and style blade for material
and the type of cut you plan to do.
• USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES,
This band saw is designed to cut wood and wood
composition products only.
The use of improper accessories may cause risk
of injury to persons.
For general type scroll cutting, follow the pattem lines
by pushing and tuming the workpiece at the same
time. Do not try to tum the workpiece while engaged
in the blade without pushing it; the workpieca could
bind or twist the blade. A curved radius cut is best
performed by following the pattern line with the blade
while turning the workpiece. The blade should cut in
the middle of the pattam line since wood cutting band
saw blades are thin.
_i,
Make sure blade guides and thrust bearings are
properly adjusted.
• Always adjust the blade guide assembly to just
clear the workpiece to avoid accidental blade
contact, minimize blade breakage and provide
maximum blade support.
Use extra caution with large, very small or
awkward workpleces:
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, but allow the blade to cut.
Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks,
etc.)
Never use a person as a substitute for a table
extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that is longer or wider than the basic saw
table, or to help feed, support or pull the workpiece.
The smallest diameter circle that can be cut out
is determined by the width of the blade. A 1/4 in.
wide blade will cut a minimum diameter of
approximately 1-1/2 in. A 1/8 in. wide blade will
cut a minimum diameter of approximately 1/2 in.
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan
YoUr work so it wil! not pinch the blade. For
example, a piece of molding must lay flat on the
table. Workpieces must not twist, rock, or slip
while being cut.
Relief cuts are made when an intricate curve (too
small a radius for the blade) is to be cut. A relief cut is
made by cutting through the scrap section of workpiece to curve in pattern line, then carefully backing
blade out. Several relief cuts should be made for
intricate curves, then follow pattern line as sections
are cut off of curve =relieving" blade pressure.
Properly support round material such as dowel
rods, or tubing. They have a tendency to roll
during a cut, causing the blade to "bite." To
avoid this, always use a "V" block or clamp
workpiece to a miter gage.
Avoid injury from unexpected saw movement:
•
Put the saw on a firm level surface with plenty of
room for handling and properly supporting the
workpiece.
% Make sure table is level and saw does not rock.
•
•
• Make sure table lock knob is tight and no parts
have excessive play.
Failureto do so couldresultin seriouspersonal
injury.
•
Make sure the blade teeth point downward,
toward the table.
• Make sure blade tension is properly adjusted.
WARNING: To avoid blade contact, adjust the
blade guide assembly to just clear the workpiece.
M
•
Cut only one workpiece at a time.
Clear everything except the workpiece and
related support devices off the table before
turning the saw on.
Bolt the saw tothe support surface to prevent
slipping, walking or eliding during operations like
cutting long, heavy boards.
18
When backing up the workplece, the blade
may bind In the kerf (cut), This is usually
caused by sawdust clogging up the kerf or
because the blade comes out of the guides. If
this happens:
Plan the way you will hold the workplece
from start to finish:
Do not hand hold pieces so small that your
fingers will go under the blade guard. Keep your
hands away from the blade.
• Turn switch OFF.
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions
where a sudden slip could cause serious injury
from contact with the blade. Never place hands
in path of blade.
