shall be rested on the larger portion and
the smaller piece cut off.
2. Keep Guards In Place and In Working
Order.
Never wedge or tie lower guard open.
Check operation of lower guard before
each use.
Don’t use if lower guard does not close
briskly over saw blade.
CAUTION: If saw is dropped, lower guard
may be bent, restricting full return.
Fig. 1
To avoid kickback, do support board or panel
near the cut.
3. Do not use blades which are deformed or
cracked.
4. Do not use blades made of high speed
steel.
5. Do not stop the blades by lateral pressure
on the saw blade.
6. Keep Blades Clean and Sharp.
Sharp blades minimize stalling and kickback.
7. DANGER:
Keep Hands Away From Cutting Area.
Keep hands away from blades. Don’t
reach underneath work while blade is
rotating. Don’t attempt to remove cut
material when blade is moving.
CAUTION: Blades coast after turn off.
Fig. 2
Do not support board or panel away from the cut.
9. Use Rip Fence.
Always use a fence or straight edge guide
when ripping.
10. Guard Against Kickback. (Fig. 1 & 3)
Kickback occurs when the saw stalls rapidly and is driven back towards the operator. Release switch immediately if blade
binds or saw stalls. Keep blades sharp.
Support large panels as shown in Fig. 1.
Use fence or straight edge guide when
ripping.
Don’t force tool. Stay alert-exercise control. Don’t remove saw from work during a
cut while the blade is moving.
NEVER place your hand or fingers behind
the saw. If kickback occurs, the saw could
8. Support Large Panels (Fig. 1 & 2).
Large panels must be supported as
shown in Fig. 1 to minimize the risk of
blade pinching and kickback.
When cutting operation requires the resting of the saw on the workpiece, the saw

A typical illustration of proper hand support,
workpiece support, and supply cord routing.
11. Lower guard should be retracted manually only for special cuts such as “Compound Cuts”. Raise lower guard by
Retracting Lever. As soon as blade enters
the material, lower guard must be
released. For all other sawing, the lower
guard should operate automatically.
16. Place the wider portion of the saw base on
that part of the workpiece which is solidly
supported, not on the section that will fall
off when the cut is made.
As example, Fig. 5 illustrates the RIGHT
way to cut off the end of a board, and Fig.
6 the WRONG way. If the workpiece is
short or small, clamp it down. DON’T TRY
TO HOLD SHORT PIECES BY HAND! (Fig.
6)
12. Adjustments.
Before cutting be sure depth and bevel
adjustments are tight.
13. Use Only Correct Blades In Mounting.
Don’t use blades with incorrect size holes.
Never use defective or incorrect blade
washers or bolts.
14. Avoid Cutting Nails.
Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
15. When operating the saw, keep the cord
away from the cutting area and position it
so that it will not be caught on the workpiece during the cutting operation. Operate with proper hand support, proper
workpiece support, and supply cord routing away from the work area.
WARNING:
It is important to support the workpiece
properly and to hold the saw firmly to prevent loss of control which could cause

CAUTION:
After adjusting the depth of cut, always tighten the
clamping screws securely.
Loosen the clamping screw on the depth guide and move the
base up or down. At the desired depth of cut, secure the
base by tightening the clamping screw.
For cleaner, safer cuts, set cut depth so that no more than
one blade tooth projects below workpiece. Using proper cut
depth helps to reduce potential for dangerous KICKBACKS
which can cause personal injury.

OPERATION
•
CAUTION:
Be sure to move the tool forward in a straight line gently.
Forcing or twisting the tool will result in overheating the
motor and dangerous kickback, possibly causing severe
injury.
004036
Hold the tool firmly. Set the base plate on the workpiece to
be cut without the blade making any contact. Then turn the
tool on and wait until the blade attains full speed. Now simply
move the tool forward over the workpiece surface, keeping it
flat and advancing slowly until the sawing is completed. To
get clear cuts, keep your sawing line straight and your speed
of advancing uniform.
004037
Rip fence (Guide rule)
The handy rip fence allows you to do extra-accurate straight
cuts. Simply slide the rip fence up snugly against the side of
the workpiece and secure it in position with the screw on the
front of the base. It also makes repeated cuts of uniform
width possible.
