Front flush cuts
Loosen the bolt on the back of the base
with the hex wrench, then slide the base
backwards. Check the contact between the
back edge of the blade and the roller, then
secure the bolt.
Plunge cutting
Starting
a
cut
a t
other than the edge of
the workpiece without first drilling
a
starting hole requires a "plunge cut". This
can be accomplished by tipping the tool
forward until the front end of the base
rests against the workpiece. Switch the tool
on and lower the back end of the
tool
slowly, gradually allowing the blade to saw
through the workpiece until the base i s
able to s i t flat on the workpiece. YOU may
then proceed forward with the cut in
a
normal manner.
If using a drill for a starting hole, bore a
hole over 12 mm (1/2") in diameter. Then
insert the blade in it and proceed.
Finishing edges
To trim edges or make dimensional adjust-
ments, run the blade lightly along the cut
edges.
For smoother cutting of plywood or other
workpieces with easily splintered surfaces,
transparent tape may be used over your
cutting line.
