Warning! Additional safety warnings for jigsaws and
reciprocating saws
Hold the tool by the insulated gripping surfaces when
u
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Cutting
accessory contacting a "live" wire may make exposed
metal parts of the power tool "live" and shock the operator.
Use clamps or another practical way to secure and
u
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and
may lead to loss of control.

u
underneath the work piece for any reason. Do not insert
fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating blade
and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by gripping the
shoe.
Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may cause

the saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always use the
appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece material
and type of cut.
When cutting pipe or conduit, make sure that they are free
u
from water, electrical wiring, etc.
