UNPACKING
Your circular
saw has been shipped
completely
assembled,
except
for the blade,
which is packed
unassembled.
Inspect the saw carefully
to make sure that no
breakage
or damage
has occurred
during shipping.
If any parts are damaged
or
missing,
return the saw to your nearest
Sears Store to have it replaced.
I Z_WARNING:
If any parts are missing, DO NOT operate this saw until the I
missing parts are replaced. Failure to do so could result in possible serious
I
personal injury.
MOUNTING THE BLADE TO SAW
Carefully remove the blade from its packing and thoroughly inspect it to be
sure that it is not cracked or damaged.
Z_WARNING:
Your saw should NEVER be connected to the power
source when you are assembling parts, making adjustments, installing or
removing blades, cleaning or when it is not in use. Disconnecting the saw
will prevent accidental starting, which could cause serious personal injury.
Z_WARNING:
A 7 1/4-in. blade is the maximum blade capacity for your
saw. NEVER use a blade that is too thick to allow the outer blade washer to
engage with the flat side of the spindle. Larger blades will come into contact
with the blade guards, and thicker blades will prevent the blade screw from
securing the blade on the spindle. Either of these situations could result in
serious personal injury.
Your saw has a spindle lock button for locking the spindle on your saw in a
stationary position. Push and hold the spindle lock button when mounting,
changing or removing the blade.
1. Remove blade wrench from shoe.
2. Place saw on its side on a flat surface.
3. Use blade wrench to loosen blade screw by turning it in a counterclockwise
direction. Completely remove blade screw (See Fig. 2).
4. Remove outer "D" washer (See Fig. 2).
5. The part remaining is the inner bushing (See Fig. 2). It does not need to
be removed.
6. Wipe a drop of oil onto the inner bushing and outer "D" washer where they
will touch blade.
7. Place the saw blade inside the lower blade guard, onto the spindle and
against the inner bushing (See Fig. 2).
NOTE: The teeth of the blade should point upward at the front of the saw
as shown in Fig. 2.
8. Place saw on the edge of a flat surface so the blade is not in
Contact with anything.
