tab or terminal on the side of the adapter must be
securely connected to a permanent electrical ground
such as a properly grounded water pipe, a properly
grounded outlet box or a properly grounded wire system.
Many cover plate screws, water pipes and outlet boxes
are not properly grounded. To ensure proper ground,
grounding means must be tested by a qualified electri-
cian.
EXTENSION
CORDS
• The use of any extension cord will cause some drop
in voltage and loss of power.
• Wires of the extension cord must be of sufficient size
to carry the current and maintain adequate voltage.
Use the table to determine the minimum wire size
(A.W.G.) extension cord.
Use only 3-wire extension cords having 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which
accept the tool plug.
If the extension cord is worn, cut or damaged in any
way, replace immediately.

The Craftsman 16" Tilting Arm Scroll Saw features alu-
minum frame construction, built-in dust collection and a
5
constant power mechanical variable speed control sys-
tem. It is designed for cutting hard and soft woods, as
well as nonferrous metals and plastics. Arm of the saw
tilts from 90 ° to 45 ° while the table remains in horizontal
position for straight line feeding of the material. The
built-in motor driven, dust collection system helps to
keep the workpiece clean from both above and below
the worksurface. Sawdust is deposited into a detach-
able 30 micron filter bag for convenient disposal. A con-
venient quick tensioning mechanism makes blade
changing quick and easy.
