STRAIGHT CUTTING
A straight cut can be made by clamping a piece of wood or a straightedge to
the workpiece and guiding the edge of the saw against it. Make the cut from one
direction only. NEVER cut halfway and then complete the cut from the opposite end.
CUTTING CURVES
Curved cuts can be made with the Multi-Saw by guiding the direction of the cut
with pressure applied on the handle.
GENERAL CUTTING (Fig. 9, Fig. 9a)
1. Remove the battery from
the saw.
2.
Make sure that the workpiece
is firmly anchored: clamp the
workpiece to prevent slipping
or moving while cutting.
3.
Use the appropriate type
and size of blade for the
workpiece material and size.
4.
Slide the steel base in or out
to accommodate various
blade widths.
5.
Check for clearance behind
the workpiece so that
the bladewill not impact
another surface.
6.
Mark the line of cut, clearly.
7. Attach the battery to the saw.
8.
Hold the saw firmly. Make
sure to keep your hand on the
insulated gripping areas only.
9.
Depress the lock-off button
and the trigger switch to start

10. Do not force the tool. Place
the base firmly on the workpiece while cutting. Use only enough steady
pressure on the blade to keep the saw cutting.
11. Reduce pressure as the blade comes to the end of the cut.
12. Allow the saw to come to a complete stop before removing the blade from
the workpiece.
13. If sawing fiberglass,
plaster, wallboard, or spackling
compound,
clean
the saw motor vents frequently with a vacuum or compressed
air. These
materials are highly abrasive and may accelerate the wear on motor bearings
and brushes.
NOTE: Always apply a steady firm "DOWN" pressure on the front and body of the
saw as you cut. This will keep the saw blade from jumping out of the workpiece.
_b, WARNING: Do not allow familiarity with the saw to make you careless.
