CUTTING (FIG. E)
• Align the edge of the front of the base with the cutting line on the work piece.Hold the tool firmly

• Keep the cutting line straight.
• This tool should only be used on horizontal surfaces.
• Be sure to move the tool gently forward, in a straight line. Forcing, or exerting excessive pressure, or allowing the
wheel to bend, pinch or twist in the cut can cause the motor to over heat and tool to kickback dangerously.
• When cutting the work piece over 20mm deep, make 2 or 3 separate cuts to prevent motor failure.

CLEANING
Warning: unplug the tool before you use a cloth to clean the housing. With the motor running, blow dirt and dust out of all
air vents with dry air at least once a week. Wear safety glasses when performing this. Exterior plastic parts may be
cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Although these parts are highly solvent resistant, NEVER use solvents.

TOOL CARE

Avoid overloading the machine. Overloading will result in a considerable reduction in speed and efficiency and the unit will
become hot. In this event, run the machine at no load for a minute or two until cooled to normal working temperature by
the built in fan. Switching your machine on and off whilst under load will considerably reduce the life of the switch.
IMPORTANT
To ensure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and adjustment (other than those listed in this manual)
should be performed by authorized service centers or other qualified organizations, always-using identical replacement
parts. Unit contains no user serviceable parts inside.
