thrusts the blade forward on the cutting stroke and
greatly increases cutting speed.

changing lever to the desired cutting action position.

Speed adjusting dial
The tool speed can be infinitely adjusted between 500
and 2,800 strokes per minute by turning the adjusting
dial. Higher speed is obtained when the dial is turned in
the direction of number 5; lower speed is obtained when
it is turned in the direction of number 1.
Refer to the table to select the proper speed for the work-
piece to be cut. However, the appropriate speed may dif-
fer with the type or thickness of the workpiece. In
general, higher speeds will allow you to cut workpieces
faster but the service life of the blade will be reduced.
