When servicing, use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other parts
may create a hazard or cause product damage.
Always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields during power tool operation
or when blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also wear
a dust mask.
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
Use clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
oils, etc., come in contact with plastic parts. Chemi-
cals can damage, weaken or destroy plastic which
may result in serious personal injury.
Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard,
or plaster are subject to accel-
erated wear and possible premature failure because the
fiberglass chips and grindings are highly abrasive to bear-
ings, brushes, commutators,
etc. Consequently, we do not
using this tool for extended work on these
types of materials. However, if you do work with any of
these materials, it is extremely important to clean the tool
using compressed air.
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a suffi-
cient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit
under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further
lubrication is required.
Only the parts shown on the parts list are intended to be
repaired or replaced by the customer. All other parts
should be replaced at a Sears Service Center.

which will require replacing the blade.
Unplug the biscuit joiner.
Remove the dust bag.
Place the biscuit joiner upside down on a workbench.
