switched ON. Make sure that the switch is in the

Hints for optimum use
Sawing laminates

presentation surface either use a saw blade that
cuts on the downward stroke or:
♦ Use a fi ne-tooth saw blade.
♦ Saw from the back surface of the workpiece.
♦ To minimise splintering, clamp a piece of
scrap wood or hardboard to both sides of the
workpiece and saw through this sandwich.
Sawing metal
Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time
than sawing wood.
♦ Use a saw blade suitable for sawing metal.
♦ When cutting thin sheet metal, clamp a piece
of scrap wood to the back surface of the
workpiece and cut through this sandwich.
