ENGLISH en 9 Original instructions We declare under our sole responsibility: These jigsaws, identified by type and serial number *1), comply with all relevant requirements of the directives *2) and standards *3). Technical file at *4) - see page 3. The machine is suitable for sawing non-ferrous metals and sheet steel, wood and similar materials, plastics and similar materials. Any other use is not permitted. The user bears sole responsibility for damage caused by improper use. Generally accepted accident prevention regulations and the enclosed safety information must be observed. For your own protection and for the protection of your electrical tool, pay attention to all parts of the text that are marked with this symbol! WARNING – Reading the operating instruc- tions will reduce the risk of injury. WARNING Read all safety warnings and instructions. Failure to follow all safety warn- ings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. Keep all safety instructions and information for future reference. Pass on your electrical tool only together with these documents. Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where the cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring. Cutting accessory contacting a "live" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live" and could give the operator an electric shock. Ensure that the spot where you wish to work is free of power cables, gas lines or water pipes (e.g. using a metal detector). Dust from material such as paint containing lead, some wood species, minerals and metal may be harmful. Contact with or inhalation of the dust may cause allergic reactions and/or respiratory diseases to the operator or bystanders. Certain kinds of dust are classified as carcinogenic such as oak and beech dust especially in conjunction with additives for wood conditioning (chromate, wood preservative). Material containing asbestos must only be treated by specialists. - Where the use of a dust extraction device is possible it shall be used. - To extract dust more efficiently, use the protective cap (11) and a suitable Metabo vacuum cleaner together with this tool. - The work place must be well ventilated. - The use of a dust mask of filter class P2 is recommended. Follow national requirements for the materials you want to work with. During work, the workpiece must lay flat and be secured against moving, e.g. using clamps. Do not try to saw extremely small workpieces. When sawing, the footplate must make secure contact with the workpiece. When interrupting a cut for any reason, release the trigger and hold the saw motionless in the material until the saw blade comes to a complete stop. Never attempt to remove the saw from the workpiece while the saw blade is in motion or kickback may occur. Do not switch the machine on while the saw blade is touching the workpiece. Let the saw blade reach full speed before making a cut. When restarting a saw in the workpiece, centre the saw blade in the kerf and check that saw teeth are not engaged into the material. If the saw blade seizes, it may kickback from the workpiece when the saw is restarted. Keep hands well away from the sawing area and the saw blade. Do not reach underneath the workpiece. Remove chips and similar material only with the machine at standstill. Pull the plug out of the socket before making any adjustments, converting or servicing the machine. Danger of injury due to the sharp jigsaw blade. After stopping work, the jigsaw blade may still be hot. Wear protective gloves.

ENGLISH en 10 13 Adjustment lever for pendulum motion 14 Switch button on the chip blower 15 Sliding switch 16 Hexagon spanner 17 Setting wheel for speed adjustment 18 Extractor connection piece 19 Screw for adjusting the footplate 20 Curved support plate indicating preset cutting angle * depending on equipment/not in scope of delivery Before plugging in, check to see that the rated mains voltage and mains frequency, as stated on the rating label, match your power supply. Australia: Always use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply with a rated residual current of 30 mA or less. Never operate the machine without a saw blade. 6.1 Fitting the anti-splintering footplate insert Danger of injury due to the sharp jigsaw blade. Remove the saw blade before fitting (8) the anti- splintering footplate insert. Turn the machine over so that the footplate faces upwards. Insert the anti-splintering footplate from the front, ensuring the following: • The smooth side of the footplate faces upwards. • The slot is facing to the rear (towards the mains cable). If you wish to work with the protective plate attached (see chapter Accessories 10.), fit the anti- splintering footplate insert in the protective plate.. 6.2 Sawing with a guiding device for straight cuts (SCS) The metal guide (5) of the guide element (6) dips into the kerf and stabilises the machine to ensure even straighter cuts. Removing the guide element: - Hold the machine with the footplate down. - Press the unlocking key. The guide element thus falls out of its retainer in the footplate. (Should the guide element not fall out by itself, you can insert the hexagon spanner (16) into the guide element hole and remove it in this way). Inserting the guide element: For straight cuts, insert the guide element so that the metal guide (5) protrudes under the footplate. For diagonal and curved cuts, insert the guide element so that the metal guide (5) fits into the footplate and is not visible. - With the unlocking key pressed, insert the guide element into the footplate. Note: It can only be inserted if the hole in the guide element is facing backwards (towards the mains cable). 6.3 Inserting the saw blade Danger of injury due to the sharp jigsaw blade. After stopping work, the jigsaw blade may still be hot. Wear protective gloves. Use a saw blade that is suitable for the material being sawn. - Turn the clamping lever (1) forwards to the stop and hold in place. - Insert the saw blade (4) up to the stop. Ensure that the saw teeth are facing forwards and the blade is seated correctly in the groove on the saw blade support roller (3). - Release the clamping lever (1). (It returns to its initial position by itself. The saw blade is now securely tightened). 6.4 Attaching / Removing the protective cap Attachment: Push on the protective cap (11) from the front until it engages Removal: Grip both sides of the protective cap (11), lift slightly, then pull forwards and remove. 6.5 Sawing with dust extraction - Connect a suitable extraction device to the extractor connection piece (18). Use a suction hose with a 30 mm connector diameter. - Attach the protective cap (11) for maximum extraction efficiency. - Switch off the chip blower (see chapter 7.1). 6.6 Sawing without dust extraction - Work with the protective cap (11) removed (see Removal chapter 6.4). 6.7 Diagonal cuts Remove the protective cap (11), anti-splintering footplate insert (8) and extraction hose. These parts cannot be used for diagonal cuts. - Remove the guide element (6) (see section 6.2). - Slacken the screw (19). - Slid the footplate (9) forwards slightly and turn. - Then slide the footplate (9) forwards or backwards and engage in one of the detents (the detents can be viewed through the semicircular opening at the rear of the footplate (9).) The preset angle is indicated on the curved support plate (20) on the footplate. Adjust to different angles using an angle gage. - Tighten the screw (19) again. - Insert the guide element (6) once more (see section 6.2). 6.8 Sawing close to the wall Remove the protective cap (11), anti-splintering footplate insert (8), circular-cutting and parallel guide. These parts cannot be used when sawing close to the wall. - Remove the guide element (6) (see section 6.2). - Slacken the screw (19) until the footplate (9) can be raised slightly. - Raise the footplate (9) slightly and slide backwards up to the stop. - Tighten the screw (19) again. 6.

On: press in the switch button (14) on the right side of the machine. (look for the symbol). Off: press in the switch button (14) on the left side of the machine. (look for the symbol). 7.2 Adjusting the pendulum motion Set the required pendulum motion using the adjustment lever (13). Position "0" = pendulum motion is switched off . . . Position "III" = maximum pendulum motion See page 3for recommend setting values. The best way to determine the ideal setting is through a practical trial. 7.3 Setting maximum speed Set the machine to maximum speed using the setting wheel (17). This is also possible during operation. See page 3for recommend setting values. The best way to determine the ideal setting is through a practical trial. 7.4 On/Off switch, continuous activation Avoid inadvertent starts: always switch the tool off when the plug is removed from the mains socket or if there has been a power cut. In continuous operation, the machine continues running if it is forced out of your hands. Therefore always hold the machine with both hands using the handle provided, stand securely and concentrate. Switching on: Push the slide switch (15) forward. For continuous activation, now tilt downwards until it engages. Switching off: Press the rear end of the slide switch (15) and release. 7.5 LED lights For working on dimly lit areas. The LED lights (10) light up when the machine is switched on. Clean the machine regularly. This includes vacuum cleaning the ventilation louvres on the motor. Clean the saw blade clamping fixture regularly and thoroughly by blowing with compressed air. If necessary, clean the openings behind the saw blade support roller (3). Apply a drop of oil to the saw blade support roller (3) from time to time. Plunging The jigsaw blade can plunge into workpieces made from thin, soft materials without the necessity of drilling a hole beforehand. Only use short saw blades. Only at 0° angle setting. See illustration on page 2. Set the adjustment lever (13) to position "0" (pendulum motion is switched off). Position the jigsaw with the front edge of the footplate (9) on the workpiece. Hold the operating jigsaw firmly and guide slowly downwards. Once the saw blade has penetrated the workpiece, the pendulum motion can be activated. In thicker workpieces, a hole for inserting the saw blade must be drilled first. Use only genuine Metabo accessories. Use only accessories which fulfil the requirements and specifications listed in these operating instruc- tions. Fit accessories securely. Secure the machine if it is operated in a bracket. Loss of control can cause personal injury. See page 4.
