Insert the blade between the bearings of one blade
guide first and then into the other blade guide. The blade
back should contact the bearings in the lower portion of
the blade guides.
Position the blade around the wheels and insert the
other side of the blade within the upper holder and lower
holder until the blade back contacts the bottom of the
upper holder and lower holder.
Hold the blade in place and turn the blade-tightening
lever counterclockwise until it hits against the protrusion
on the frame. This places proper tension on the blade.
Make sure that the blade is correctly positioned within
the blade guard and around the wheels.
Start and stop the tool two or three times to make sure
that the blade runs properly on the wheels.
While making sure that the blade runs on the

Adjusting the protrusion of stopper plate
In the ordinary operation, protrude the stopper plate to
the A side fully.
When the stopper plate strikes against the obstacles like
a wall or the like at the finishing of a cut, loosen two
screws and slide it to the B side in the figure.
After sliding the stopper plate, secure it by tightening two
It is important to keep at least two teeth in the cut. Select
the proper cutting position for your workpiece by
referring to the figure.
Hold the tool by both hands as shown in the figure with
the stopper plate contacting the workpiece and the blade
clear of the workpiece.
Turn the tool on and wait until the blade attains full
speed. Gently lower the blade into the cut. The weight of
the tool or slightly pressing the tool will supply adequate
pressure for the cutting. Do not force the tool.
As you reach the end of a cut, release pressure and,
without actually raising the tool, lift it slightly so that it will
not fall against the workpiece.
