• 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.
• Work with the shoe pressed against
the workpiece.
HINTS FOR OPTIMUM USE
• As some splintering along the line of
cut on the top side of the workpiece
cannot be avoided, cut on the side
where splintering is acceptable.
• Where splintering is to be minimized,
e.g. when cutting laminates, clamp a
piece of plywood onto the top of the
workpiece.

POCKET CUTTING IS USED TO CUT A
HOLE IN A PIECE OF MATERIAL
WITHOUT CUTTING FROM THE SIDE.
• Measure and mark work.

with the blade just clearing the

position.
• When the shoe rests flat on the
material being cut, complete the cut in
forward direction.

stop before lifting saw from material.
