Be sure to move the tool forward in a straight line
gently. Forcing or twisting the tool will result in
overheating the motor and dangerous kickback,
possibly causing severe injury.
Hold the tool firmly. The tool is provided with both a front
grip and rear handle. Use both to best grasp the tool. If
both hands are holding saw, they cannot be cut by the
blade. Set the base on the workpiece to be cut without
the blade making any contact. Then turn the tool on and
wait until the blade attains full speed. Now simply move
the tool forward over the workpiece surface, keeping it
flat and advancing smoothly until the sawing is com-
To get clean cuts, keep your sawing line straight and your
speed of advance uniform. If the cut fails to properly fol-
low your intended cut line, do not attempt to turn or force
the tool back to the cut line. Doing so may bind the blade
and lead to dangerous kickback and possible serious
injury. Release switch, wait for blade to stop and then
withdraw tool. Realign tool on new cut line, and start cut
again. Attempt to avoid positioning which exposes opera-
tor to chips and wood dust being ejected from saw. Use
eye protection to help avoid injury.
Rip fence (Guide rule)
The handy rip fence allows you to do extra-accurate
straight cuts. Simply slide the rip fence up snugly against
the side of the workpiece and secure it in position with
the screw on the front of the base. It also makes
repeated cuts of uniform width possible.

Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before attempting to perform inspection
or maintenance.
Adjusting for accuracy of 90° cut (vertical cut)
This adjustment has been made at the factory. But if it is
off, adjust the adjusting screw with a hex wrench while
squaring the blade with the base using a triangular rule,
try square, etc.
Replacing carbon brushes
Remove and check the carbon brushes regularly.
Replace when they wear down to the limit mark. Keep
the carbon brushes clean and free to slip in the holders.
Both carbon brushes should be replaced at the same
time. Use only identical carbon brushes.
Use a screwdriver to remove the brush holder caps. Take
out the worn carbon brushes, insert the new ones and
secure the brush holder caps.
