SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
DANGER!
1) Keep hands away from cutting area
and blade. Kesp your sacond hand on
auxiliary handie or motor housing.
If both hands are holding the cutter, they
cannot be cut by the blade.
Keep your body positioned to either
side of the cutter blade, but not in Une
with the cutter biade.
KICKBACK could cause the cutter to jump
backwards.{See KICKBACK)
Do not reach underneath the work.
The guard can not protect you from the
blade below the work.
2) Check lower guard for proper closing
before each use. Do not operate cutter
If lower guard does not move freely and
close Instantly. Never clamp or tie the
lower guard into the open position.
i cutter is accidentally dropped, lower guard
may be bent. Raise the lower guard with the
Lower Guard Lift Lever and make sure it
moves freely and does not touch the blade or
any other part, in all angles and depths of cut.
3) Check the operation and condition of
the lower guard spring. If the guard and
the spring are not operating properly,
they must be serviced before use.
Lower guard may operate sluggishly due
to damaged pans, gummy deposits, or a
bulidup of debris.
Lower guard should be retracted manually
only for special cuts such as “Pocket
Cuts” and “Compound Cuts” . Raise lower
guard by Lower Guard Lift Lever. As soon
as blade entars the material, lower guard
must be released.
For all other cutting, the lower guard
should operate automatically.
Always observe that the lower guard is
covering the blade before placing cutter
down on bench or floor.
An unprotected, coasting blade will cause the
cutter to walk backwards, cutting whatever is
in its path. Ba aware of the time # takes for
the blade to stop after swith is released.
NEVER hold piece being cut In your
hands or acroes your leg.
It is important to support the work property
to minimize body exposure, blade binding.
or loss of control.
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces
when performing an operation where
the cutting tool may contact hidden
wiring.
Contact with a “live” wire will also make
exposed metal parts of the toot ive” and
shock the operator.
When ripping always use a rip fence or
straight edge guide.
This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance for blade binding.
Always use blade with correct size and
shape (diamond vs. round) arbor holes.
Blades that do not match the mounting hard-
ware of the cutter will run eccentrically, causing
loss of control,
10)Never use damaged or incorrect blade
washers or bolts.
The blade washers and bolt were specially
designed for your cutter, for optimum performance
and safety of operation.
11) Cause and Operator Prevention of Kickback:
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a
pinched, bound, or misaligned cutter
blade, causing an uncontrolled cutter to lift
up and out of the workpiece toward the
operator. When the blade is pinched or

bound tightly by the ker! closing down, the
blade stalls and the motor reaction drives
. the unit rapidly back toward the operator.
If the blade becomes twisted or misaligned
in the cut, the teeth at the back edge of the
blade can dig into the top surface of the
metal causing the blade to climb out of the
kerf and jump back toward the operator.
Kickback is the result of tool misuse and / or
incorrect operating procedures or conditions and
can be avoided by taking proper precautions as
given below:
12) Maintain a firm grip on the cutter and
position your body and arm in a way
that allows you to resist KICKBACK
forces.
KICKBACK forces can be controlled by the
operator, if proper precautions are taken.
13) When blade is binding, or when Interrupting
a cut for any reason, release the trigger and
hold the cutter motionless In the material
until the biade comes to a complete stop.
Never attempt to remove the cutter from the
work or pull the cutter backward while the
blade is in motion or KICKBACK may
occur,
Investigate and take corrective actions to
eliminate the cause of blade binding.
14) When restarting a cutter In the workpiece,
center the cutter blade In the kerf and
check that teeth are not engaged Into the
material. .
If cutter blade is binding, it may walk up or
KICKBACK from the workpiece as the cutter
в restarted.
15)Support large panels to minimize the
risk of blade pinching and KICKBACK.
Large panels tend to sag under their own
weight. Supports must be placed under
the panel on both sides, near the line of
cut and near the edge of the panel.
16)Do not use dull or damaged blade.
Unsharpened or improperly set blades
produce narrow kerf causing excessive
friction, blade binding, and KICKBACK.
17)Biade depth and bevel adjusting locking
levers must be tight and secure before
making cut.
if blade adjustment shifts while cutting, it
will cause binding and KICKBACK.
18)Use extra caution when making a
“Pocket Cut” Into existing walls or
other blind areas.
The protruding blade may cut objects that
can cause KICKBACK, or a live wire could
cause electric shock.
19)The risk of kickback increases as the
battery pack discharges.
20)Be sure to inspect material. Avoid cutting
bolts, nails or other different material.
21)Be careful not to drop Metal Cutter.
22)Never swing Metal Cutter.
23)Naver cover the ventilation slots, and ksep
them free from dust or other material.
24)Do not clamp Metal Cutter in & vise. Never
cut with Metal Cutter held upaide down In
a vise. This is extremely dangerous and
can lead to serious accidents.
25)Never wear knitted gloves.
26)Be sure no one Is below when using
Metal Cutter In high locations.
27)Do not touch the blade immediately
after operation. It may be hot and could
burn your skin.
