WARNING:
Excessive side pressure on the blade
could result in broken blades or damage to the
material being cut.
GENERAL CUTTING
See Figure 7.
 Rest the front of the saw base on the workpiece and
align cutting edge of the blade with the line on your
workpiece.
 Start the saw and move it forward on the work surface.
 Apply downward pressure to keep the saw steady
and only enough forward pressure to keep the blade
cutting.
Do not force the saw. Forcing the saw may overheat the
motor and break saw blades. Broken saw blades must be
discarded. Remove the broken portion of the saw blade
from the clamp and install a new saw blade.
ORBITAL MOTION
See Figure 7.
The blade of the saw cuts in orbital motion. This feature is
adjustable and provides faster more efficient cutting. The
blade cuts through your work in the upstroke but does
not drag across your work in the downstroke. The higher
settings should be used when fast cutting in soft material
is desired. The lower settings should be used when
cutting materials with more resistance.
STRAIGHT CUT
See Figure 7.
A straight cut can be made by clamping a piece of wood
or straightedge to the workpiece and guiding the edge
of the saw against it. Make the cut from one direction
only. Do not cut halfway and complete the cut from the
opposite end.
SCROLL CUTTING
See Figure 8.
Scroll cuts can be made with the jig saw by guiding the
direction of the cut with applied pressure on the handle.
