Before You Begin

Read and follow all instructions carefully.

• After unpacking all components, assemble band saw on a firm level surface to prevent saw from tilting

and rocking.

• Be sure the power switch is in the OFF position before plugging in the band saw.

• Always disconnect band saw from electrical outlet before setting up or servicing.

• Wear proper apparel. Never wear loose fitting clothes, neckties, jewelry and gloves that may get caught in

moving parts.

• Remove all wrenches before using band saw. Leaving wrenches attached while operating this tool may

result in damage to the machine and/or operator.

• Always wear safety goggles. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses; they are not

safety glasses.

• Never turn on band saw while glass or working materials are touching the blade.

• Always hold material being cut firmly on cutting table.

• Feed materials at a slow easy pace into the blade. Avoid sudden twisting of the blade, which may cause

kinking or breaking.

• Keep out of reach of children.

• Never leave saw running unattended. Turn power OFF when not in use.

• Do not operate while under the influence of medication or alcohol.

• To ensure top performance keep band saw properly maintained.
