FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

CAUTION:
• Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before adjusting or checking function on the
tool.
Selecting the cutting action (Fig. 1)
This tool can be operated with an orbital or a straight line
(up and down) cutting action. The orbital cutting action
thrusts the blade forward on the cutting stroke and greatly
increases cutting speed.
To change the cutting action, just turn the cutting action
changing lever to the desired cutting action position. Refer
to the table to select the appropriate cutting action.

Speed adjusting dial
For 4350CT, 4350FCT (Fig. 3)
The tool speed can be infinitely adjusted between 800 and
2,800 strokes per minute by turning the adjusting dial.
Higher speed is obtained when the dial is turned in the
direction of number 5; lower speed is obtained when it is
turned in the direction of number 1.
Refer to the table to select the proper speed for the
workpiece to be cut. However, the appropriate speed may
differ with the type or thickness of the workpiece. In
general, higher speeds will allow you to cut workpieces
faster but the service life of the blade will be reduced.
