use. Reflective surfaces could direct the beam back toward the operator.
DANGER: LASER R A D I ATION. AVOID DIRECT EYE EXPOSURE. Do not stare into
the laser light source. Never aim light at another person or object other than the
workpiece. Laser light can damage your eyes.
WARNING: DO N O T use tinted glasses to enhance the laser light. Tinted glasses
will reduce overall vision for the application and interfere with the normal operation of the
t o o l .
INSTALLING THE BATTERIES (FIG. D)
Detach the laser from the jig saw by removing the screw (16) and pulling laser (10)
forward. Insert 2 fresh 1.5 volt A A A batteries making sure to match (+) and (-) terminals
c o r r e c t l y. Reattach the laser.
WA R N I N G : Batteries can explode, or leak, and can cause injury or fire . To reduce
• Carefully follow all instructions and warnings on the battery label and package.
• Always insert batteries correctly with regard to polarity (+ and -), marked on the battery
and the equipment.
• Do not short battery terminals.
• Do not charge batteries.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Replace all of them at the same time with new batteries
of the same brand and type.
• Remove dead batteries immediately and dispose of per local codes.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• Keep batteries out of reach of children.
" Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently
come in contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like.
The US Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually
prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e. packed in suitcases and
carryon luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when
transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and
well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit."
SWITCHING THE LASER ON AND OFF (FIG. D)
To turn the laser on, press in on the on/off button (17). To turn the laser off, press the
button a second time. The laser button is "on" when subflush to the housing, and "off"
when the laser button is flush.
ADJUSTING THE LASER SIDE TO SIDE (FIG. E)
NOTE: Laser is intended to be a cutting aid and does not guarantee a precise cut.
Use laser adjustment screw (18) to align laser line with saw blade if needed.
WA R N I N G : Laceration Hazard : DO NOT adjust the laser when the jig saw is
W A R N I N G : Laser circuit will reduce output visibility (power) of laser when overheated.
Laser may be not visible when saw is overloaded for prolonged period of time. Laser
visibility (power) will gradually return back to normal when tool cools down even if the tool
W A R N I N G : Do not leave overheated laser ON unattended. Make sure the switch is in
the OFF position as shown in the inset of f i g u re D. Remove the batteries to cut power
to the laser.
Hints for Optimum Use
- Use a high speed for wood, a medium speed for aluminum and PVC and a low speed
for metals other than aluminum.
As the saw blade cuts on the upward stroke, splintering may occur on the surface closest
to the shoe plate.
- Use a fine-tooth saw blade.
- Saw from the back surface of the workpiece.
- To minimize splintering, clamp a piece of scrap wood or hardboard to both sides of
