Let the blade run freely for a few seconds before starting
u

u
employ with a normal hand saw. This enables a quicker
and cleaner cut.
Hints for optimum use
Sawing wood
Fit a large capacity blade (4).
u
Clamp the workpiece securely and remove all nails and
u
metal objects.
When splintering is to be minimised, e.g. when cutting
u
laminates, clamp a piece of scrap wood or hardboard to
both sides of the workpiece and saw through this
sandwich.
Sawing metal
Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time than
u
sawing wood.
Fit a metal cutting blade.
u
When cutting thin sheet metal, clamp a piece of scrap
u
wood to the back surface of the workpiece and cut through
this sandwich.
Spread a film of oil along the intended line of cut.
u
