Installing or removing saw blade
Always clean out all chips or foreign matter adhering to
the blade, blade clamp and/or slider. Failure to do so
may cause insufficient tightening of the blade, resulting
in a serious injury.
To install the blade, loosen the bolt on the blade clamp with
the hex wrench. Keep the back edge of the blade against the
roller and insert the blade between the blade clamp and the
slider as far as it will go. Make sure that you are inserting the
blade into the proper position.
Fit the pin on the slider into the hole in the blade shank.
The hole in the blade shank will be aligned with the pin
on the slider when the blade shank hits against the
spring pin on the slider.
After the pin fits properly into the hole, tighten the bolt clock-
wise securely while making sure that the blade cannot be
extracted even though you try to pull it out.
If you tighten the bolt without the pin on the slider fitting
properly in the hole in the blade shank, the pin or the
blade shank will be damaged. This may cause the blade
to be extracted unexpectedly during operation.
To remove the blade, follow the installation procedure in
