General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in elec-
tric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save 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.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Clut-
tered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distrac-
tions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radia-
tors, ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for out-
door use. Use of a cord suitable for out-
door use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp loca-
tion is unavoidable, use a residual cur-
rent device (RCD) protected supply. Use
of an RCD reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3) Personal safety
a) 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 influ-
ence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious person-
al injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Al-
ways wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protec-
tion used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or bat-
tery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your fin-
ger on the switch or energising power
tools that have the switch on invites acci-
dents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench be-
fore turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of
the power tool may result in personal inju-
ry.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unex-
pected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose cloth-
ing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can
be caught in moving parts.

1 609 929 J50 | (27/11/07) Bosch Power Tools
g) If devices are provided for the connec-
tion of dust extraction and collection fa-
cilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the cor-
rect power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was de-
signed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power
tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be re-
paired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjust-
ments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfa-
miliar with the power tool or these in-
structions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condi-
tion that may affect the power tool’s op-
eration. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Prop-
erly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool
bits etc. in accordance with these in-
structions, taking into account the work-
ing conditions and the work to be per-
formed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qual-
ified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Machine-specific
Safety Warnings
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped
with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Keep your workplace clean. Blends of mate-
rials are particularly dangerous. Dust from
light alloys can burn or explode.
f Never leave the machine before it has come
to a complete stop. Cutting tools that are
still running can cause injuries.
f Never use the machine with a damaged ca-
ble. Do not touch the damaged cable and
pull the mains plug when the cable is dam-
aged while working. Damaged cables in-
crease the risk of an electric shock.
f Never make warning signs on the machine
unrecognisable.
f Never stand on the power tool. Serious inju-
ries can occur when the power tool tips over
or when inadvertently coming into contact
with the saw blade.
f Make sure that the guard operates properly
and that it can move freely. Never lock the
guard in place when opened.
f Keep hands away from the cutting area
while the machine is running. Danger of in-
jury when coming in contact with the saw
blade.
f Never remove cutting remainders, wood
chips, etc. from the sawing area while the
machine is running. Always guide the tool
arm back to the neutral position first and
then switch the machine off.

Bosch Power Tools 1 609 929 J50 | (27/11/07)
f Guide the saw blade against the workpiece
only when the machine is switched on. Oth-
erwise there is damage of kickback, when
the saw blade becomes wedged in the work-
piece.
f Operate the power tool only when the work
area to the workpiece is clear of any adjust-
ing tools, wood chips, etc. Small pieces of
wood or other objects that come in contact
with the rotating saw blade can strike the op-
erator with high speed.
f Always firmly clamp the piece to be
worked. Do not saw workpieces that are too
small to clamp. Otherwise, the clearance of
your hand to the rotating saw blade is too
small.
f Operate the machine only for materials
mentioned under “Intended Use”. Other-
wise, the machine can be subject to over-
load.
f Do not use dull, cracked, bent or damaged
saw blades. Unsharpened or improperly set
saw blades produce narrow kerf causing ex-
cessive friction, blade binding and kickback.
f Always use saw blades with correct size
and shape (diamond versus round) of arbor
holes. Saw blades that do not match the
mounting hardware of the saw will run ec-
centrically, causing loss of control.
f Do not use high speed steel (HSS) saw
blades. Such saw blades can easily break.
f Do not touch the saw blade after working
before it has cooled. The saw blade be-
comes very hot while working.
f Never operate the machine without the in-
sert plate. Replace a defective insert plate.
Without flawless insert plates, injuries are
possible from the saw blade.
f Do not direct the laser beam at persons or
animals and do not stare into the laser
beam yourself, not even from a distance.
This power tool produces laser class 2 laser
radiation according to EN 60825-1. Other
persons could be blinded unintentionally.
f Do not allow children unsupervised use of
the power tool with laser. They could blind
other people.
f Do not replace the installed laser with an-
other laser type. A laser that does not fit to
this power tool could pose dangers for other
persons.
Symbols
The following symbols can be important for the operation of your power tool. Please memorise the
symbols and their meanings. The correct interpretation of the symbols helps you operate the power
tool better and more secure.

fasteners to the working surface. The holes
16 serve for this purpose.
Dust/Chip Extraction
Dusts from materials such as lead-containing
coatings, some wood types, minerals and metal
can be harmful to one’s health. Touching or
breathing-in the dusts can cause allergic reac-
tions and/or lead to respiratory infections of the
user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are
considered as carcinogenic, especially in con-
nection with wood-treatment additives (chro-
mate, wood preservative). Materials containing
asbestos may only be worked by specialists.
– Use dust extraction whenever possible.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working
place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class
respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country
for the materials to be worked.
Integrated Dust Extraction
(see figure F)
– Mount the dust bag 1 onto the sawdust ejec-
tor 2.
During sawing, the dust bag must never come in-
to contact with the movable machine parts.
Always empty the dust bag in good time.
External Dust Extraction
For dust extraction, a vacuum hose (size
Ø 36 mm) can also be connected to the dust
ejector.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the ma-
terial being worked.
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially det-
rimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special
vacuum cleaner.
Changing the Tool
(see figures G1–G4)

Working Advice
General Sawing Instructions
f For all cuts, it must first be ensured that the
saw blade at no time can come in contact
with the fence, screw clamps or other ma-
chine parts. Remove possibly mounted aux-
iliary stops or adjust them accordingly.
Protect the saw blade against impact and shock.
Do not subject the saw blade to lateral pressure.
Do not saw warped/bent workpieces. The work-
piece must always have a straight edge to face
against the fence.
Illuminating the Work Area (Power Light)
(see figure M)
Provide for sufficient lighting of the direct work-
ing area.
– For this, switch on the lighting unit 24 with
the switch 27.
Marking the Cutting Line
(see figure N)
A laser beam indicates the cutting line of the
saw blade. This allows for exact positioning of
the workpiece for sawing, without having to
open the retracting blade guard.
– For this, switch the laser beam on with the
switch 28.
– Align the cutting mark on your workpiece
with reference to the right-hand edge of the
laser line.
Before sawing, check if the cutting line is still in-
dicated correctly (see “Adjusting the Laser”,
page 48). The laser beam, as an example, can
misadjust due to vibrations after intensive use.
Hand Positioning
(see figure O)
Keep hands, fingers and arms away from the ro-
tating saw blade.
Do not cross your arms when operating the tool
arm.
Maximum Workpiece Dimensions
Sawing without Slide Movement (Cutting Off)
(see figure P)
– For cuts without slide movement (small
workpieces), loosen the locking screw 31 in
case it is tightened. Slide the tool arm to the
stop in the direction of the fence 10 and
retighten the locking screw 31.
– Firmly clamp the workpiece as appropriate
for its dimensions.
– Set the desired mitre angle.
– Switch on the machine.
– Press button 4 and guide the tool arm slowly
downward with handle 5.
– Saw through the workpiece applying uniform
feed.
– Switch off the machine and wait until the
saw blade has come to a complete stop.
– Guide the tool arm slowly upward.

Sawing Workpieces of the Same Length
(see figure Q)
The length stop 36 can be used for easily sawing
workpieces to the same length.
– Loosen wing nut 52 and position the length
stop to the requested distance to the saw
blade.
– Tighten the wing nut again.
– Position the workpiece against the stop.
Check again with the cutting line marked by
the laser if the length stop is positioned cor-
rectly.
– Saw this and the other workpieces to the
same length according to the work steps in
the section “Sawing”.
Adjusting the Depth Stop (Sawing Grooves)
(see figure R)
The depth stop must be adjusted when a butt
gap is to be sawed.
– Loosen both lock nuts 53 using a commercial
box-end or open-end spanner (size 14 mm).
– Loosen the stop nut 54 and screw the depth
stop 29 all the way up turning in anticlock-
wise direction.
– Tilt the tool arm by the handle 5 to the posi-
tion at which the requested groove depth is
reached.
– Screw the depth stop in clockwise direction
until the end of the screw faces against the
casing stop 55.
– Guide the tool arm slowly upward.
– Retighten the stop nut 54 first and then the
lock nuts 53.
Special Workpieces
When sawing curved or round workpieces,
these must be especially secured against slip-
ping. At the cutting line, no gap may exist be-
tween workpiece, fence and saw table.
Provide for special fixtures, if required.
Replacing the Insert Plate
(see figure S)
The red insert plates 12 can become worn after
long use of the machine.
Replace defective insert plates.
– Bring the power tool into the working posi-
tion.
– Unscrew the screws 56 using the provided
Phillips screwdriver and remove the old in-
sert plates.
– Insert the new right-hand insert plate.
– Screw the insert plate as far as possible to
the right with the screws 56 so that the saw
blade does not come into contact with the in-
sert plate over the complete length of the
possible slide motion.
– Repeat the work steps in the same manner
for the left-hand insert plate.
