extremely close cuts in floors, corners
and other extremely tight areas.

the shoe is in its closest position to the
saw housing. And the teeth of the blade
are facing as close as possible to the
work surface.

1. ALWAYS clamp the workpiece
down to prevent it from slipping,
2. Place the adjustable
shoe and
the blade lightly against the
surface to be cut.

to full speed before applying pressure
to the workpiece.
