workpiece when the saw is turned on.
[] Make sure the b)ade is inside the area to be cut.
[] Using high speed, start your saw and slowly lower the
Made into the workp(ece until the blade cuts through the
wood.
[] Do not move the base forward until the blade cuts en-
tire(y through the workpiece and the base is in comp(ete
contact with the workp(ece.
