Cutting mode

Pendulum stroke or action provides a more aggressive blade
motion and is designed for cutting soft materials such as wood
or plastic. It provides a faster cut, but with a less smooth cut
across the material. Dependant on model, your jig saw will
have either a Pendulum Stroke dial or an Auto Select dial
to set the pendulum action. Use of these dials is explained
in the next two sections.
Note: Never use pendulum action to cut metal.
Pendulum Stroke dial ( g. E - KS901PE only)
The KS901PE has these four cutting modes with increasing
amounts of pendulum action:
