Place the tool on a flat surface. Loosen the lock lever and
lower the tool body until the bit just touches the flat surface.
Press the lock lever down to lock the tool body.
Now lower the stopper pole until it makes contact with the
adjusting hex bolt. The stopper pole can be moved rapidly by
depressing the fast-food button. While pressing the fast-feed
button, raise the stopper pole until the desired depth of cut is
obtained. The depth of cut is equal to the distance between
the stopper pole and the adjusting hex bolt. Stopper pole
travel can be checked with the scale (1 mm or 1/16" per grad-
uation) on the tool body. Minute depth adjustments can be
obtained by turning the stopper pole (1.5 mm or about 1/16"
Now, your predetermined depth of cut can be obtained by
loosening the lock lever and then lowering the tool body until
the stopper pole makes contact with the adjusting hex bolt.
By turning the knob, the upper limit of the tool body can be
adjusted. When the tip of the bit is retracted more than
required in relation to the base plate surface, turn the knob to
lower the upper limit.
Since excessive cutting may cause overload of the motor

not be more than 20 mm (13/16") at a pass when cutting
grooves. When you wish to cut grooves more than 20

Do not lower the knob too low. The bit will protrude
