This is the content required for an introduction to our reciprocating saw and jigsaws - reading this does NOT replace the mandatory session with a tutor! It will make it a lot quicker though ;-)

Let's begin! First off, make sure you have read the corresponding tool's manual:

Safety

Personal protection: Protection - goggles.svg

perhaps also wear a dust mask (depending on the material you're cutting)

Dangers Precautions
sharp oscillating blade - possible kickback
  • never turn on the saw when the blade is already touching something (e.g. the workpiece)
  • always let the baseplate touch the workpiece before starting to cut
  • blind cut: leave the sawblade in the cut until it has stopped
  • through cut: make sure the blade has stopped moving before putting the saw back on the table
  • make sure the blade path is free and you won't cut into the table or similar
  • make sure the blade is long enough so that it can reach through the material when fully retracted (too short a blade relative to the material being cut will cause dangerous kickback)
  • before cutting into the workpiece, make sure there are no obstacles such as nails in it
  • secure the workpiece with clamps so nothing shifts and nothing large falls down once the cut is made
generates dust and small chips
  • wear goggles
  • hook up the shop vac (and deactivate the "dust blow" function of the saw, if available)
generates noise wear ear defenders
Danger - sudden start.svg
no prevention of turning on after loss & restoration of power (keine Anlaufsicherung)
make sure the locking lever isn't "on" before plugging the saw in (the trigger should move freely)


Demonstration

During the introduction, the tutor will show you the following:

  • inserting/removing saw blades
  • choosing and changing the pendulum or orbital action settings (Bosch PFZ 700 PE: chapter 7 in the manual)

Besides these safety notes, you should know which type of blade is suitable for the material you want to cut!
