21. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
22. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions and in
the manner intended for the particular type of
power tool, taking into account the working con-
ditions and the work to be performed. Use of the
power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Service
23. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
24. Follow instruction for lubricating and changing
accessories.
25. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES

DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product
(gained from repeated use) replace strict adherence
to jig saw safety rules. If you use this tool unsafely or
incorrectly, you can suffer serious personal injury.
1.
Hold power tools by insulated gripping surfaces
when performing an operation where the cutting
tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord.
Contact with a "live" wire will make exposed metal
parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
2.
Use clamps or another practical way to secure
and support the workpiece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against your body
leaves it unstable and may lead to loss of control.
3.
Always use safety glasses or goggles. Ordinary
eye or sun glasses are NOT safety glasses.
4.
Avoid cutting nails. Inspect workpiece for any
nails and remove them before operation.
5.
Do not cut oversize workpiece.

ately after operation; they may be extremely hot
and could burn your skin.

toxic. Take caution to prevent dust inhalation
and skin contact. Follow material supplier safety
