Please retain all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.

INTENDED USE.

The intended use of this tool is described in this instruction manual. The use of any accessory or attachment or performance of any operation with this tool other than those recommended in this instruction manual may present a risk of personal injury and/or damage to property. This 20V Max Jigsaw is intended for domestic use only. Do not use for commercial purposes. This tool is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for the their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the tool.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY.

Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adaptor plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering the power tool will increase the risk of electric shock. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase risk of electric shock. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use to reduce the risk of electric shock.

WORK AREA SAFETY.

Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes. Keep bystanders, children and animals away while operating the power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

BEFORE USE.

Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce the risk of personal injury.
WARNING! Contact with, or inhalation of, dusts arising from cutting applications may endanger the health of the operator and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure that persons within or entering the work area are also protected. Always wear eye protection. Any power tool can throw foreign objects into your eyes and cause permanent eye damage. Always wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI safety standard Z87.1. Every day glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They are not safety glasses.

WARNING! Wearing glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1 when operating this tool could cause serious injury. Dress appropriately. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts to prevent them from becoming caught in the tool.

WARNING

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

Failure to follow this instruction could result in serious personal injury. result in serious personal injury. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off position before connecting to the power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch, or energising power tools that are switched on, invites accidents. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. A power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury. Hold the power tool by the insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. A cutting accessory contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give the operator an electric shock. Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may lead to loss of control. Keep hands away from cutting area. Never reach underneath the workpiece for any reason. Do not insert your fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating blade and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the tool by gripping the shoe. When cutting pipe or conduit, make sure that they are free from water, electrical wiring, etc. Do not overreach.

putting the tool down. Do not touch the workpiece or the blade immediately after operating the tool. They can become very hot.

VIBRATION.

The declared vibration emission values stated in the technical data and the declaration of conformity have been measured in accordance with a standard test method provided by EN 60745 and may be used for comparing one tool with another. The declared vibration emission value may also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
WARNING! The vibration emission value during actual use of the power tool can differ from the declared value depending on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may increase above the level stated. When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons regularly using power tools in employment, an estimation of vibration exposure should consider the actual conditions of use and the way in which the tool is used, including taking account of  all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time.

MAINTENANCE & STORAGE.

Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery back from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories or storing. Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally. Maintain the power tool. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.  Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control. Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may cause the saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always use the appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece material and type of cut. Store idle power tools out of reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

SERVICE

Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using identical replacement parts only to ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

FITTING THE BLADE

WARNING! Never attempt to fit the blade to the Jigsaw when it is connected to the Battery. Always ensure the Jigsaw is disconnected from the battery before performing repair, maintenance and cleaning.

To fit the blade, pull up the BLADE RELEASE LEVER (7) with your index finger. Fully insert the Blade into the Blade Holder slot with the teeth of the blade facing forward and release the BLADE RELEASE LEVER (7).

IMPORTANT: Ensure the blade is locked into position and the edge of the Blade is located in the groove of the ROLLER SUPPORT (4).VonHaus 3500010 20V Max Jigsaw Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 8

 

 

NOTE For best cutting results, ensure that you use a Blade suited to the material and cut quality you need.

ORBITAL ACTION

Adjust the Orbital Control accordingly with the ORBITAL SWITCH (6).

NOTE: Orbital actions on the Jigsaw will vibrate and increase in intensity with a higher Orbital setting. It is recommended to keep to a low setting when cutting Metal & Aluminium.

Jigsaws with orbital action are most useful when cutting through softwoods. A lower orbital setting will result in a smoother, cleaner cut and is best suited to thinner workpieces.A higher orbital setting action is particularly effective when making fast cuts along the grain of thick pieces of timber, although a rougher finish will be produced. Turning the ORBITAL SWITCH (6) to (0) will give a smoother, slower cutting setting, which is also better suited for cutting curves. Turning the ORBITAL SWITCH (6) to (3) will give a rougher, faster cutting setting, which is suitable for quicker straight line cutting.

CAUTION: Never overly-force the Jigsaw through the material your cutting. This may damage both the Blade and Jigsaw and may cause personal injury.VonHaus 3500010 20V Max Jigsaw Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 9

ANGLE ADJUSTMENT

WARNING! Never attempt to fit the blade to the Jigsaw when it is connected to the Battery. Always ensure the Jigsaw is disconnected from the battery before performing repair, maintenance and cleaning.

To adjust the angle of inclination, loosen the 2 Hex Bolts on the underside of Jigsaw. Move the base plate backwards so it releases the base plates teeth from the catch. You can then rotate the base plate to the required angle.

IMPORTANT Firmly tighten the Hex Bolts with the Hex-Key provided when finished.VonHaus 3500010 20V Max Jigsaw Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 10

DUST EXTRACTION/REPELLING

CAUTION! Always use the appropriate breathing protection when using a powertool that creates dust. Dust extraction/repellent systems must be used when cutting any appropriate material.

The Jigsaw comes with a DUST EXTRACT/REPEL SWITCH (13). Moving the DUST EXTRACT/REPEL SWITCH (13) to the left will function as a vacuum and extract the dust into the DUST EXTRACTION PORT (8).
NOTE! When using the extraction mode, it is important to use a dust extraction bag or a vacuum attachment (attached to an operating vacuum).
Moving the DUST EXTRACT/REPEL SWITCH (13) to the right will function as a dust repellent and will blow/ repel the dust created from cutting away from the blade cutting area.VonHaus 3500010 20V Max Jigsaw Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 11
