  • Check blade for cracks before use.
  • Don’t stand in line with blade during use.
  • Don’t force blade into material, allow it to cut at own speed.
  • Avoid long continuous cuts, allow blade to cool.  Chattering in cut indicates overheating.
  • Cut at right angle to surface, being careful not to twist blade in cut.  Cut in straight line
  • Cut so direction of blade turn is into cut.
