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
_WARNING;
IF ANY PARTS ARE MISSING, DO NOT OPERATE THIS
SAW UNTIL THE MISSINNG PARTS ARE REPLACED. FAILURE TO DO
SO COULD RESULT IN POSSIBLE SERIOUS 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.
I
_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.
,_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 btade 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 oit 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
