FOR SAFE OPERATION
6. ALWAYS check for damaged parts. Before further use of the tool, a
guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to
determine if it will operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
and any other condition that may affect the tool's operation. A guard or
other part that is damaged, should be properly repaired or replaced at
a Sears Service Center. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire or serious injury.
7. DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to carry the tool or pull
the plu.g from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Replace damaged
cords immediately. Damaged cords
increase the risk of electric shock. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock or fire.
8. ALWAYS make sure that your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord be sure to use one that is heavy
enough to carry the current that your tool will draw. A wire _qauqe
size (A.W,G.) of at least 16 is recommended
for an extension 10-0feet
or less in length. Using an extension cord that is over 100 feet in
length is not recommended.
If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
Smaller gauge wires, have greater capacity (16 gauge wire has more
capacity than 18 gauge wire). An undersized cord will cause a drop in
line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating.
9. ALWAYS inspect and remove all nails from lumber before sawing.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
10. DO NOT use the tool while tired or under the influence
alcohol or any medication. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire or serious personal injury.
11. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
Refer to them frequently
and use them
to instruct others who may use this tool. If someone borrows this tool,
make sure they have these instructions also.
The operation of any circular
saw can result in foreign objects being thrown into your
eyes, which can result in severe eye damage. Before
beginning power tool operation, ALWAYS wear safety
goggles or safety glasses with side shield and a full
face shield when needed. We recommend A Wide
Vision Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or
standard safety glasses with side shield, available at
Sears Retail Stores.
