OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

BLADE SELECTION
To obtain the best performance from the saw, it is
important to select the correct blade for the particular
application and type of material to be cut.
Blades with fewer teeth, e.g., 10 teeth per inch (TPI) are
typically used for cutting wood; blades with more teeth
are better for cutting metal or plastic. We recommend 14
TPI blades for plastics and soft metals and 18 TPI blades
for hard metals.
INSTALLING A SAW BLADE (Fig. 2)
1. Disconnect the saw from the power supply.
2. Pivot the blade-release lever ( E ) to open the blade
clamp.
3. Insert the saw blade into the blade clamp as far as
possible, and release the blade-release lever to lock
the blade in position.
4. Check that the blade is securely attached.
REMOVING THE SAW BLADE (Fig. 2)
1. Disconnect the saw from the power supply.
2. Pivot the blade-release lever ( E ) to open the blade
clamp.
3. Remove the saw blade from the blade clamp.
BASE SHOE ADJUSTMENT (Fig. 3)
For maximum control and longer blade life, the base
assembly slides in or out to adjust the effective stroke
length.
1. Disconnect the plug from the power source.
2. Open and hold the shoe-release lever ( F ), then slide
the shoe ( B ) to the desired position.
3. Release the lever to lock the shoe in position.
PIVOTING THE SHOE (Fig. 4)
The shoe ( B ) pivots to provide maximum contact with the
surface being cut.
1. Disconnect the plug from the power source. Hold the
saw securely, and then pivot the shoe to the desired
angle.
WARNING: To avoid injury and damage, do not
operate the saw without the pivoting shoe in place. The
spindle may strike against the workpiece and damage the
reciprocating mechanism.
