DO NOT OPERATE your scroll saw until it is
completely assembled and installed according to
IF YOU ARE NOT thoroughly familiar with the
operation of Scroll Saws, obtain advice from your
supervisor, instructor or other qualified person.
YOUR SCROLL SAW MUST be securely fastened
to a stand or workbench. If there is any tendency
for the stand or workbench to move during
operation, the stand or workbench MUST be
fastened to the floor.
THIS SCROLL SAW is intended for indoor use
MAKE SURE blade is properly tensioned before
TO AVOID blade breakage ALWAYS adjust blade
MAKE SURE the blade teeth point downward
toward the table.
NEVER turn the saw "ON" before clearing the table
of all objects (tools, scraps of wood, etc.).
DO NOT cut material that is too small to be safely
AVOID awkward hand positions where a sudden
slip could cause a hand to move into the blade.
ALWAYS keep hands and fingers away from blade.
ALWAYS adjust holddown foot for each new
DO NOT USE dull or bent blades.
DO NOT attempt to saw material that does not
have a flat surface, unless a suitable support is
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how
often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust
masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic
Refer to them often and use them to instruct others.
THE DUST GENERATED by certain woods and wood
products can be injurious to your health. Always
operate machinery in well ventilated areas and provide
for proper dust removal. Use wood dust collection
systems whenever possible.
SOME DUST CREATED BY POWER SANDING,
SAWING, GRINDING, DRILLING, AND OTHER
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES contains chemicals
known to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these
· lead from lead-based paints,
· crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other
masonry products, and
· arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
MAKE "relief" cuts before cutting long curves.
NEVER attempt to cut a curve that is too tight for
the blade being used.
WHEN backing a blade out of a workpiece, the
blade may bind in the saw kerf. This is usually
caused by sawdust in the kerf. If this happens, turn
"OFF" the switch and remove plug from power
source outlet. Wedge open the kerf and back
blade out of the workpiece.
THE USE of attachments and accessories not
recommended by Black & Decker may result in the
risk of injuries.
ALWAYS hold the work firmly against the table.
DO NOT feed the material too fast while cutting.
Only feed the material fast enough so that the
blade will cut.
NEVER start the Scroll Saw with the stock pressed
against the blade.
WHEN cutting a large workpiece MAKE SURE the
material is supported at table height.
USE CAUTION when cutting material which is
irregular in cross section which could pinch the
blade before the cut is completed. A piece of
moulding for example must lay flat on the table
and not be permitted to rock while being cut.
USE CAUTION when cutting round material such
as dowel rods or tubing. They have a tendency to
roll while being cut causing the blade to "bite." Use
a V-block to control the piece.
ALWAYS release blade tension before removing
the blade from the upper or lower blade holders.
MAKE CERTAIN table tilting lock is tightened
before starting the machine.
