Plunge cutting
Starting
a
cut a t other than
the
edge of
the
workpiece without first drilling a starting
hole requires
a
"plunge cut". This can be
accomplished by tipping the tool forward
until the front end of the base
rests
against
the workpiece. Switch the tool on and
lower the back end of the tool slowly,
gradually allowing the blade to saw through
the workpiece until the base is able to s i t
flat on the workpiece. You may then pro-
ceed forward with the cut in a normal
manner.
If using a drill for a starting hole, bore a
hole over 12 mm (1/2") in diameter. Then
insert the blade in it and proceed.
Finishing edges
To trim edges or make dimensional adjust-
ments, run the blade lightly along the cut
edges.
For smoother cutting of plywoods or other
materials with easily splintered surfaces,
transparent tape may be used over your
cutting line.
