2, To remove blade clamping scrcw ("A", Fig. l):
- a. ON NEW SAWS (without blade attached). Turn screw
counter-clockwise flth
blade wrench provided. lf screw does
not loosen easily from spindle "D", tap the outer end of the
wrench sharply in a counter-clockwise direction with a piece of
wood to "free" the screw threads. Remove screw and clamp
w a s h e r " 8 " .
- b. ON SAWS WITH BLADE ATTACHED. Using the retracting
lever "C", retract the lower blade guard and place the Saw on
a piece of scrap lumber as shown in Figure 2. Press down on
the Saw so that the blade teeth dig slightly into the lumber and
prevent the blade from turning. Then, with the blade ,wrench
provided, turn llp clamping screw

3. To attach the blade, retract the lower blade guard and slip
the blade over the saw spindle "D" with printed sido of blade
out (teeth at bottom of blade pointing forward)'. Place clamp
washer "8" on spindle so that "llats" in washer fit "flats" on
spindle. Thread on clamping screw firmly by hand to hold
washer in position. Place Saw on piece of scrap lumber as
shown in Figure 2 and press down on the Saw so that blade
teeth dig slightly r4o wood and prevent blade from turning.

NOTE: An alternate way to keep the blade from turning, when
loosening the blade screw, is to hold a large nail through the

CUTT'A'G DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
DISCINNECT PLUG FROM POWER SUPPLY BEFORE MAKING
THIS OR ANY OTHER ADJUSTMENT.
For the most efficient cutting action, set the Depth Adjustment
so that one tooth of the blade will project below the material to
be cut. This distance is from the tip of the tooth to the bottom
of the gullet in front of it. This keeps blade friction at a mini'
mum, removes sawdust from the cut, and results in cooler,
faster sawing.
NOTE: When using Carbide-Tipped Blades, make an exception
to the above rule and aflow only one'half of a tooth to project
below the material being cut.
Figure 3 shows the saw set at maximum cutting deoth for
sawing thick lumber.
Figure 4 shows the saw set for a much reduced cutting depth
for sawing thin plywood.
To adjust the cutting depth:
