SPLINTER-FREE CUTTING
See Figures 13 - 14.
The base of the jig saw has a narrow slot to permit
splinter-free cutting. It is especially useful when cutting
plywood. This feature should only be used when making
straight cuts or circle cuts. It is not for bevel cutting or
plunge cutting.
NOTE: The non-orbital setting also helps reduce
splintering when cutting plywood.
POSITIONING BASE IN THE SPLINTER-FREE
CUTTING POSITION
 Remove the battery pack.
 Using the 1/8 in. hex key provided, loosen base pivot
screws and slide base forward.
 Always set the cutting angle at 0° for splinter-free
cutting. To set cutting angle at 0°, align the 0° mark on
the scale with the edge of the motor housing.
NOTE: When setting angle at 0° for splinter-free
cutting, the positive stop notches on the rear of the
base are not used.
 Tighten base pivot screws securely.
 Remove hex key and return it to storage compartment.
 Replace the battery pack.
