Warning! LASER RADIATION. Never aim the beam at a
workpiece with a reflective surface. Bright shiny reflective
sheet steel or similar reflective surfaces are not recommended
for laser use. Reflective surfaces could direct the beam back
toward the operator.
EXPOSURE. Do not stare into the laser light source.
Never aim light at another person or object other than the
workpiece. Laser light can damage your eyes.
Warning! DO NOT use tinted glasses to enhance the
laser light. Tinted glasses will reduce overall vision for the
application and interfere with the normal operation of the tool.

forward keeping the laser line on the mark.
Upon completion of the cut, release the trigger and allow
the saw blade to come to a complete stop before
switching off the laser.

always hold the tool with both hands.
Let the blade run freely for a few seconds before starting
the cut.
Apply only a gentle pressure to the tool while performing
the cut.

the workpiece cannot be avoided, cut on the side where
splintering is acceptable.
