if they are not kept clean, sharp, and properly
set. Using a dull blade will place a heavy
load on the saw and increase the danger of
kickback. Keep extra blades on hand, so that
sharp blades are always available.
Gum and wood pitch hardened on blades will
slow the saw down. Remove saw blade from
the saw and use gum and pitch remover, hot
water, or other non-flammable cleaners to
remove these accumulations.
See Figure 9, page iii
The lower blade guard attached to the circular
saw is there for your protection and safety.
Do not alter it for any reason. If it becomes
damaged, do not operate the saw until you
have the guard repaired or replaced. Always
leave guard in operating position when using
the saw.
When sawing through the
workpiece, the lower blade guard does not
cover the blade on the underside of the
workpiece. Since the blade is exposed on
the underside of the workpiece, keep hands
and fingers away from cutting area. Any part
of your body coming in contact with moving
blade will result in serious injury.
Never use saw when guard
is not operating correctly. Check the guard for
correct operation before each use. The guard
is operating correctly when it moves freely
and readily returns to the closed position.
If you drop the saw, check the lower blade
guard and bumper for damage at all depth
settings before reuse.
If at any time the lower blade guard does not
snap closed, remove the battery from the
saw. Exercise the lower guard by moving
it rapidly back and forth from the full open
position to the closed position several times.
Normally this will restore the guard to its
normal operating condition. If it does not
correct a slow or sluggish closing lower
guard, do not use the saw. Take it to an
authorized factory service center for repair.

To start the saw:
■ Depress the safety switch.
■ Squeeze the trigger switch.
Always let the blade reach full speed, and
then guide the saw into the workpiece.
contact with the workpiece before it reaches
full speed could cause the saw to "kickback"
toward you resulting in serious injury.
To stop the saw:
After you release the trigger switch, allow the
blade to come to a complete stop. Do not
remove the saw from the workpiece while the
blade is moving.
See Figure 10, page iii
The safety switch reduces the possibility
of accidental starting. The safety switch
is located on the handle above the trigger
switch. The safety switch must be depressed
before you pull the trigger switch. The lock
resets each time the trigger is released.
from either the left or right side.
See Figure 11, page iii
Always keep correct blade depth setting.
The correct blade depth setting for all cuts
should not exceed 1/4 in. below the material
being cut. More blade depth will increase
the chance of kickback and cause the cut to
be rough. For more depth of cut accuracy,
a guide is located on the back of the upper
blade guard.
■ Remove the battery pack from the saw.
