preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the
power tool or these instructions to operate the
power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power
tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.
in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified

SAFETY INTRUCTIONS FOR ALL SAWS
DANGER: Keep hands away from cutting area
and the blade. Keep your second hand on
auxiliary handle, or motor housing. If both hands
are holding the saw, they cannot be cut by the blade.
b. Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The
guard cannot protect you from the blade below the
c. Adjust the cutting depth to the thickness of the
workpiece. Less than a full tooth of the blade teeth
should be visible below the workpiece.
d. Never hold piece being cut in your hands or
across your leg. Secure the workpiece to a stable
platform. It is important to support the work properly
to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss of
e. Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces
when performing an operation where the cutting
tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord.
Contact with a "live" wire will also make exposed
metal parts of the power tool "live" and shock the
When ripping always use a rip fence or straight
edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance of blade binding.
g. Always use blades with correct size and shape
(diamond versus round) of arbour holes. Blades
that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw
will run eccentrically, causing loss of control.
h. Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers
or bolt. The blade washers and bolt were specially
designed for your saw, for optimum performance and
safety of operation.
