• Operating Procedures:
– The K12 saw is set up with a carbide tipped rescue
blade. This is the only saw in the KFD that is
authorized to be equipped with a carbide tip
blade.
– The blade guard should be adjusted so that the
rear section is flush with the work piece. This
allows for debris to be collected by the guard and
moved away from the user.
