SAW
BLADES
All saw blades need to be kept clean, sharp and properly set in
order to cut efficiently.
Using
a dull blade
places
a heavy
load on the saw
and
increases
the danger
of kickback.
Keep
extra
blades
on hand,
so sharp
blades
are always
available.
Gum
and wood
pitch
hardened
on the blade
slows
the saw down.
Use gum
and pitch
remover,
hot water
or kerosene
to
remove
them.
DO NOT use
gasoline.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
The lower blade guard, attached to your circular saw, is there for your
protection and safety. It should NEVER be altered for any reason. If it
becomes damaged or begins to return slowly or sluggishly, DO NOT
operate your saw until i;he damage has been repaired or replaced. ALWAYS
leave the guard in its correct operating position when using the saw.
DANGER:
When sawing through a workpiece, the lower blade guard
does not cover the blade on the underside of the workpiece. Since the blade
is exposed on the underside of the workpiece, ALWAYS keep your hands and
fingers away from the cutting area. Any part of your body coming in contact
with the moving blade will result in serious injury (see Fig. 3).
/_ CAUTION:
NEVER
use the saw when the guard is not operating
properly. The guard should be checked for correct operation before each use.
If you drop your saw, check the lower blade guard and bumper for damage at
all depth setting before using. NOTE: The guard is operating properly when it
moves freely and then readily returns to the closed position. If, for any reason.
your lower blade guard does not close freely, take it to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for service before using it.
