All saw blades need to be kept cIean, sharp and properly set in order to cut efficiently
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
or begins to
DO NOT operate your saw until the damage has been repaired
or replaced. ALWAYS leave the guard in its correct operating
when using the saw.
When sawing through a workpiece, the lower blade guard does not cover
the blade on the underside of the workpiece (see Fig. 5)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.
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 settings 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..
