SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES

∎ Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the cutting tool “live” and shock the operator. ∎ Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual care- fully. Learn its applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards related to this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious injury. ∎ Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury. ∎ Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury. ∎ Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during extended periods of operation. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury. ∎ Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged, have repaired at your nearest Authorized Service Center. Constantly stay aware of cord location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock or fire. ∎ Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center. Following this rule will reduce the risk of shock, fire, or serious injury. ∎ Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. A wire gauge size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension cord 50 feet or less in length. A cord exceeding 100 feet is not recom- mended. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. ∎ Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before using this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury. ∎ Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently and use them to instruct others who may use this tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these instructions also. WARNING:

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS 6 ELECTRICAL

DOUBLE INSULATION Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three- wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are isolated from the internal metal motor components with protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need to be grounded. WARNING: The double insulated system is intended to protect the user from shock resulting from a break in the tool’s internal insulation. Observe all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical shock. NOTE: Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires extreme care and knowledge of the system and should be performed only by a qualified service technician. For service, we suggest you return the tool to your nearest authorized service center for repair. Always use original factory replace- ment parts when servicing. ELECTRICAL CONNECTION This tool has a precision-built electric motor. It should be connected to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only (normal household current). Do not operate this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop will cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If your tool does not operate when plugged into an outlet, double-check the power supply. 7 EXTENSION CORDS When using a power tool at a considerable distance from a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL) should be used. When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is desig- nated with “WA” on the cord’s jacket. Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed wires and cut or worn insulation. **Ampere rating (on tool data plate) 0-2.0 2.1-3.4 3.5-5.0 5.1-7.0 7.1-12.0 12.1-16.0 Cord Length Wire Size (A.W.G.) 25’ 16 16 16 16 14 14 50’ 16 16 16 14 14 12 100’ 16 16 14 12 10 — **Used on 12 gauge - 20 amp circuit.

OPERATION WARNING: The tool should never be connected to a power supply when you are assembling parts, making adjustments, cleaning, performing maintenance, or when the tool is not in use. Disconnecting the tool will prevent accidental starting that could cause serious injury. TURNING THE SAW ON/OFF See Figure 2. ∎ To turn the saw on: Depress the switch trigger. ∎ To turn the saw off: Release the switch trigger. ADJUSTING THE SPEED See Figure 3. The variable speed feature allows the saw to operate at TOP VIEW OF SAW speeds that can be increased by rotating the dial from 1 (slow) to 6 (fast). The dial is conveniently located on the handle, allowing operator control of blade speed. ∎ To increase the speed: Turn the speed dial to a higher number setting. ∎ To decrease the speed: Turn the speed dial to a lower number setting. SPEED DIAL SELECTING BLADES Selecting the correct type of blade is important in order to obtain the best performance from the saw. Select the blade based on the application and on the material you wish to cut. Selecting the right blade will give you a smoother, faster cut and prolong the life of the blade. Blades with fewer teeth, 10 teeth per inch (TPI) are typically used for cutting wood, while blades with more teeth are better for cutting metal or plastic. We recommend 14 TPI for plastics and soft metals and 18 TPI for hard metals. INSTALLING BLADES See Figure 4. The toolless blade change system eliminates the need for tools when changing the blade. ∎ Unplug the saw. ∎ Lift the blade release lever. ∎ Insert the blade fully, tooth side down. ∎ Lower the blade release lever. 10 Fig. 2 TO INCREASE SPEED TO DECREASE SPEED Fig. 3 LIFT TO INSTALL BLADE Fig. 4 OPERATING THE SAW See Figure 5. ∎ Secure the workpiece to a work bench or table with a vise or with clamps. ∎ Make sure the saw blade is clear of any foreign material and that the power cord and extension cord are out of the blade path. ∎ Hold the saw firmly in front of and clearly away from you. ∎ Mark the line of cut clearly. ∎ Depress the switch trigger to start the cutting action. ∎ Set the base assembly against the workpiece. ∎ Move the blade into the workpiece. NOTE: Do not force. Use only enough pressure to keep the saw cutting. Let the blade and saw do the work. Keep pressure on the base, against the workpiece. PLUNGE CUTTING WOOD OR WALL BOARD See Figure 6. ∎ Secure the workpiece to a work bench or table with a vise or with clamps. ∎ Make sure the saw blade is clear of any foreign material and that the power cord and extension cord are out of the blade path. ∎ Hold the saw firmly in front of and clearly away from you. ∎ Mark the line of cut clearly. ∎ Choose a convenient starting point inside the cutting area and place the tip of the blade over that point. ∎ Rest the front edge of the base assembly on the workpiece and hold it firmly in position during the cut. ∎ Depress the switch trigger and allow the saw blade to reach full cutting speed. WARNING: Make sure the blade does not touch the workpiece until the motor reaches full speed. Failure to heed this warning can cause you to lose of control of the saw and result in serious injury. ∎ Tilt the saw downward until the tip of the blade starts cutting the workpiece. ∎ Allow the saw to penetrate the workpiece. ∎ Tilt the saw until the blade is perpendicular to the workpiece. Fig. 5 Fig. 6 WARNING: Blades longer than 6 in. can whip and should not be used for plunge cutting. Failure to heed this warning can resut in serious personal injury. WARNING: Cutting into electrical wiring can cause the blade, the blade clamp, and the saw bar assembly to become electrically live. Do not touch metal parts when cutting into a wall; grasp only the insulated surfaces on the tool. Make sure hidden electrical wiring, water pipes, and mechanical haz- ards are not in the blade path when cutting into a wall.

OPERATION 11 OPERATION METAL CUTTING See Figure 7. You may cut metals such as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods, aluminum, brass, and copper with the saw. Observe the following tips when metal cutting: ∎ Be careful not to twist or bend the saw blade. ∎ Do not force the tool and use a slow speed setting. ∎ Use cutting oil when cutting soft metals and steel. Cutting oil also keeps the blades cool, increases cutting action, and prolongs blade life. ∎ Never use gasoline since normal sparking of motor could ignite fumes. ∎ Clamp the workpiece firmly and cut close to the clamping point to eliminate any vibration of the work. When cutting conduit pipe or angle iron, clamp the workpiece in a vise if possible and cut close to the vise. To cut thin sheet material, “sandwich” the material between hardboard or plywood and clamp the layers to eliminate vibration and material tearing. ∎ Always keep firm pressure on the base to hold it securely against the workpiece. MAINTENANCE WARNING: Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to accelerated wear and When servicing, use only identical Ryobi replacement parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause product damage. possible premature failure because the fiberglass chips and grindings are highly abrasive to bearings, brushes, commu- tators, etc. Consequently, we do not recommended using this tool for extended work on these types of materials.
