English Contact with a “live” wire will also make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and shock the operator. When ripping always use a rip fence or straight edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and reduces the chance of blade binding.
English When restarting a saw in the workpiece, centre the saw blade in the kerf and check that saw teeth are not engaged into the material. If saw blade is binding, it may walk up or kickback from the workpiece as the saw is restarted.
English An unprotected, coasting blade will cause the saw to walk backwards, cutting whatever is in its path. Be aware of the time it takes for the blade to stop after switch is released. PRECAUTIONS ON USING CORDLESS CIRCULAR SAW 1.
English 20. Ensure that the retraction mechanism of the guard system operates correctly. 21. The saw blades body must be thinner than the riving knife and the width of cut, or kerf (with teeth set) must be greater than the thickness of the riving knife.
English 30. WARNING: It is important to A TYPICAL ILLUSTRATION support the work piece properly OF PROPER HAND SUPPORT and to hold the saw ﬁ rmly to prevent loss of control which could cause personal injury. Fig. 4 illustrates typical hand support of the saw.
