OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
VARIABLE-SPEED TRIGGER SWITCH (Fig. 5)
Your reciprocating saw is equipped with a trigger
switch ( D ) to turn the saw on and off, and to control the
speed.
1. To start the saw, squeeze the trigger switch.
2. To stop the saw, release the trigger switch and allow
it to return to the "OFF" position.
3. To vary the speed, simply increase or decrease the
pressure on the trigger switch. The more tightly the
trigger switch is squeezed, the higher the speed.
LIVE-TOOL INDICATOR LIGHT (Fig. 6)
Your reciprocating saw has a "live-tool indicator" light ( G )
located above the point where the power cord enters the
handle. This light is always on when the saw is plugged
into a power source.
SCROLLING/ORBITAL/STRAIGHT FUNCTION LEVER
(Fig. 7)
Scrolling Action
1. Disconnect the plug from the power source.
2. Turn the lever ( C ) to the "
saw head to be rotated relative to the body.
3. Rotate the saw head to one of the four locking
positions (indicated by a "click"), then turn the lever
to the "
" position to lock the head in position.
Orbital Action
This reciprocating saw has the option of orbital action to
make the blade swing slightly as it cuts. Orbital action is
effective only when the saw blade teeth face down.
1. Disconnect the plug from the power source.
2. Turn the lever ( C ) to the "
cutting action.
Orbital action increases the speed of cut, but may result
in a rougher finish to the cut in some materials.
Experiment on a piece of scrap material to determine the
optimal orbital action setting.
