Work with the shoe pressed against the workpiece.


As some splintering along the line of cut on the top
side of the workpiece cannot be avoided, cut on the
side where splintering is acceptable.
Where splintering is to be minimized, e.g. when
cutting laminates, clamp a piece of plywood onto the
top of the workpiece.

Pocket cutting is used to cut a hole in a piece of
material without cutting from the side.

material to be cut. Align so that cut will begin at the
back of the drawn rectangle shown in Fig. K.

upward position, with the blade just clearing the
material, start motor and gradually lower the saw into
the material.
Warning! As blade starts cutting the material,
release the retracting lever immediately.
Never tie the blade guard in a raised position.
When the shoe rests flat on the material being cut,
complete the cut in forward direction.
Allow the blade to come to a complete stop before
lifting saw from material.
When starting each new cut, repeat the above steps.
