/1 CAUTION:
DO NOT let familiarity with your saw make you
I
careless. Remember
that a careless fraction of a second is suff=cient
I
to cause severe injury.
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 the damage
has been repaired
or replaced.
ALWAYS
leave the guard in its correct
operating
position
when using the saw.
/_ DANGER:
When sawing through a workpieee, the lower blade guard I
does not cover the blade on the underside of the workpiece.
Since the blade
I
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).
Z_ 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 operatingproperly
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.
