007969
Always switch off the tool before insertion or
removal of the battery cartridge.
To remove the battery cartridge, withdraw it from
the tool while sliding the button on the side of the
cartridge.
To insert the battery cartridge, align the tongue on
the battery cartridge with the groove in the housing
and slip it into place. Always insert it all the way
until it locks in place with a little click. If you can
see the red part on the upper side of the button, it
is not locked completely. Insert it fully until the red
part cannot be seen. If not, it may accidentally fall
out of the tool, causing injury to you or someone
around you.
Do not use force when inserting the battery
cartridge. If the cartridge does not slide in easily, it
is not being inserted correctly.

CAUTION:

For cleaner, safer cuts, set cut depth so that no more
than one blade tooth projects below workpiece. Using
proper cut depth helps to reduce potential for dangerous
KICKBACKS which can cause personal injury.

Bevel cutting

Loosen the lever on the bebel scale plate on the front
base. Set for the desired angle (0° - 50°) by tilting
