the teeth are pointing toward the slot opening in the saw shoe.
• Release the lever.
• To remove the saw blade, press and hold the lever (A1) down
and pull the saw blade from the holder.
• To switch the tool on, press the variable speed switch on the power unit. The tool speed
depends on how far you press the switch.
• To switch the tool off, release the variable speed switch.
• Always use the appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece material and type of cut.
• If necessary, drill a hole in the workpiece near the starting point of the cut so the blade will fit
before starting the cut.
NOTE: This attachment only operates in the forward direction, the forward/reverse slider of the
Power Unit should not be able to be switched to reverse.
MAKING A POCKET CUT (FIGURE B),
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO DRILL A PILOT HOLE:
• Mark the desired starting point.
• Tilt the tool forward and place the rounded front edge of the
saw shoe on the workpiece.
• Switch the tool on and slowly feed the saw blade into the
workpiece at the desired starting point.
CUTTING SHEET METAL
• Use a metal cutting blade. Clamp a piece of plywood or
soft wood to the back of the workpiece and saw through the
combination in order to obtain a clear cut.
• Do not force the saw blade into the workpiece. Note that cutting
sheet metal will normally take more time than sawing thicker
• Spread a thin film of oil along the cutting line before sawing.
• To cut, place the front of shoe on the material to be cut. Hold the
jig saw shoe firmly against the material while cutting. Don't force
the tool; let the blade cut at its own speed.
