Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other repro-

ductive harm. Some example of these chemicals are:

lead from lead-basedpaints

crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products

arsenic and chromium from chemically-treatedlumber

Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, always wear MSHA/NIOSH approved, properly fitting face mask or respirator when using such tools.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES

Read and understand all instructions.Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

WORK AREA

1.Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite accidents.

2.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.

3.Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

1.Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.

2.A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a separate battery pack must be recharged only with the specified charger for the battery.

A charger that may be suitable for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with another battery.

3.Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may create a risk of fire.

PERSONAL SAFETY

1. Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.

2

2.Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.

3.Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the locked or off position before inserting battery pack. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on invites accidents.

4.Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.

5.Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.

6.Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.

7.Use certified safety equipment. Eye protection equipment should comply with ANSI Z87.1 standards, hearing equipment should comply with ANSI S3.19 standards, and dust mask protection should comply with MSHA/NIOSH certified respirator standards.

TOOL USE AND CARE

1.Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.

2.Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.

3.Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

4.Disconnect battery pack from tool and place the switch in the locked or OFF position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.

5.Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons.

Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

6.When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like: paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another.

Shorting the battery terminals together may cause sparks, burns, or a fire.

7.Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are easier to control.

8.Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.

9.Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when used on another tool.

SERVICE

1.Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel.

Service or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.

2.When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance Section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.

3

ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES

1.Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tools may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.

2.Be aware that this tool is always in an operating condition, because it does not have to be plugged into an electrical outlet. Always set the trigger switch to the locked OFF position when installing or removing the battery pack or saw blade.

3.Keep blades sharp.

4.Keep hands away from cutting area. When sawing never reach underneath or behind the material being cut for any reason.

5.When you have finished a cut be careful not to come into contact with the blade. Turn off the motor immediately.

6.EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN BLIND CUTTING TO BE CERTAIN THAT THERE ARE NO FOREIGN OBJECTS SUCH AS ELECTRICAL WIRE, CONDUIT, PLUMBING PIPES, ETC., THAT MAY COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE BLADE.

7.Never hold work in your hand, lap, or against other parts of your body when sawing.

8.Some wood contains preservatives which can be toxic. Take extra care to prevent inhalation and skin contact when working with these materials. Request, and follow, all safety information available from your material supplier.

There are certain applications for which this tool was designed. Delta strongly recommends that this tool NOT be modified and/or used for any application other than for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative to its application DO NOT use the tool until you have written Delta and we have advised you.

D. If an extension cord is to be used outdoors it must be marked with the suffix W-Aor W following the cord type designation. For example –SJTW-Ato indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.

8. Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug – have them replaced immediately, to avoid a hazard. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR POWER CORD.9. Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way; take it to a qualified serviceman.

5

10.Do not disassemble charger or battery pack. Take it to a qualified serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.

11.Unplug charger from outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning – to reduce risk of electric shock.

12.Charge the battery pack in a well ventilated place, do not cover the charger and battery pack with a cloth, etc., while charging.

13.Do not store the charger or battery pack in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 122°F (50°C) (such as a metal tool shed, or a car in the summer), which can lead to deterioration of the storage battery.

14.Do not charge battery pack when the temperature is BELOW 40°F (4.4°C) or ABOVE 104°F(40°C). This is very important for proper operation.

15.Do not incinerate battery pack. It can explode in a fire.

16.Do not charge battery in damp or wet locations.

17.Do not attempt to charge any other cordless tool or battery pack with the Delta charger.

18.Do not short across the terminals of the battery pack: EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURES COULD CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY OR FIRE.

19.Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still

does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double Insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.

20.Dispose of expended batteries properly. The

Delta Battery Packs contains rechargeable, nickel-cad-mium batteries. These batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly. Drop off expended battery packs at your local replacement battery retailer, your local recycling center, or at a Delta Service Center (see list on back page of this manual). Applicable fees for the collection and recycling of these batteries (in the United States), have been paid to the RBRC. For further information, call:1-800-8-BATTERY.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

FOREWORD

Delta Model CL180JS Cordless Jigsaw is designed to use Universal-ShankBlades for cutting materials of the following MAXIMUM thickness: wood 41/3", plastic and fiberglass 11/4", aluminum and nonferrous metals13/16", mild steel3/8", and stainless steel1/8".

CHARGING THE BATTERY

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK GENERAL

Before using your cordless tool for the first time, the battery pack should be fully charged. If the battery pack is installed in the tool, remove it by following instructions under INSTALLING OR REMOVING BATTERY PACK.

6

As a battery pack approaches the discharged state, you will notice a sharp drop in tool performance. When the tool is unable to perform the task at hand, it is time to recharge the battery pack. Recharging the battery pack before this condition is reached will reduce the total work life of the pack. Discharging the pack beyond this point can damage the pack.

NOTE: Battery temperature will increase during and shortly after use. Batteries may not accept a full charge if they are charged immediately after use. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature before charging for best results.

The battery charger must rest on the four pads provided on the bottom of the case. Vent slots in top and bottom of charger must not be obstructed. Do not charge battery when temperature is BELOW 40°F (4.4°C) or ABOVE 104°F (40°C).

NORMAL CHARGING

Make sure power circuit voltage is the same as that shown on the charger specification plate. Connect charger to power source. The orange light (A) Fig. 2, should light up. This indicates the charger is ready to begin charging.

Position battery pack on charger, align rails (D) Fig. 2 and Fig. 3, on battery charger with four tabs (C) Fig. 3 on battery pack. Slide battery forward onto charger until it stops.

The red light (B) Fig. 2, should begin to glow continuously, indicating that the battery pack is receiving a “Fast Charge” (if the red light does not glow continuously, and the green light (C) Fig. 2, begins to glow: remove battery and reinsert when battery temperature is between 40°F (4.4°C) and 104°F (40°C). After approximately one hour, the “Fast Charge” indicator light (red) should go out indicating that the battery pack is fully charged and that the charger is now in a “Trickle Charge” mode (green light). The battery pack can be left on “Trickle Charge” until you are ready to use it.

Depending on room temperature, line voltage, and existing charge level, initial battery charging may take longer than one hour.

Disconnect charger from power source when not in use.

Special Charge Modes: If all lights go out after the battery is inserted, the charger has enteredpre-chargemode. In approximately5-10minutes, the orange and red lights should turn on indicating that fast charge has been initiated. If all lights remain off after 15 minutes, remove the battery. The orange light should glow. Reinsert the battery. If the orange light goes out when the battery is inserted and all lights remain off for 15 minutes, battery should be replaced.

After inserting battery, if the orange light is on while the red and green lights remain off, remove battery and re-insert.If the orange light is on while the red and green lights remain off, battery should be replaced.

BASE ADJUSTMENT

REMOVE THE BATTERY.

AVOID CONTACT WITH THE BLADE TEETH TO PREVENT PERSONAL INJURY.

The base may be adjusted two ways, front to rear and tilted either left or right for making bevel cuts. The base has a detente at the 0 (90 degree) setting and at 45 degree setting both left and right of center.

The base is set at its forward most position at the factory. The base can be adjusted to the rear for making flush cuts around walls and other similar areas. To move the base for-

ward or backward, turn the saw on its side, loosen screws (A), Fig. 10, move the base to the desired position and retighten the screws.

NOTE: When making bevel cuts, the base should be set to the forward most position.

USING THE SAW

First, secure the material in a bench vise or with clamps to the work table. This is especially important when sawing small pieces or thin material. As the work progresses in scroll or curved cut-outpieces, the material can be readjusted to accommodate the movement of the saw. If the work is large enough it can be held by hand across saw horses. The saw cuts freely with only light forward feed pressure on the tool. Forcing the saw will not make it cut faster.

To start the cut, secure the work, mark the line of cut clearly, place the forward edge of the saw base firmly on the edge of the material, start the motor and move the blade into the work.

DO NOT FORCE, LET THE SAW DO THE WORK. Move the machine forward only rapidly enough to keep the blade cutting.

You will find that the open throat and clear forward edge of the saw base make it easy to follow the line and cut closely to the pattern. You need not cut oversize for hand finishing or sanding on most materials.The smoothness of cut will often make further sanding unnecessary.

Avoid contact with the blade teeth to prevent personal injury.
