INTRODUCTION 



Commentary 

We are proud to offer the Grizzly Model 
G9906 Circular Saw. The Model G9906 is 
part of a growing Grizzly family of fine 
power tools. When used according to the 
guidelines set forth in this manual, you can 
expect years of trouble-free, enjoyable 
operation and proof of Grizzly's commit- 
ment to customer satisfaction. 

The Model G9906 is a 7 1 /4" electric circular 
saw that is capable of a wide variety of 
operations. An 18-tooth carbide tipped 
blade driven by a 1 HP motor at 4600 
RPM makes the toughest cutting job a 
simple task. Blade depth can be easily 
adjusted using the graduated scale, and 
the blade can be tilted for bevel cuts up to 
45°. The saw can be equipped with vari- 
ous blades used to cut through wood, 
plastic and concrete. A number of blades 
for the Model G9906 saw are available 
through the Grizzly catalog. 

We are pleased to provide this manual 
with the Model G9906. It was written to 
encourage safety considerations and 
guide you through general operating pro- 
cedures and maintenance. It represents 
our effort to produce the best documenta- 
tion possible.

Cutting Depth and 
Adjustment 



Loosen the silver knob to the left and 

below the hand grip. 

Pull or push the saw base to expose 

more or less saw blade. 

To check the depth of cut, compare 

the blade depth to the workpiece 

thickness and adjust saw base until 

approximately W of the blade is 

exposed past the thickness of the 

workpiece. 

Tighten the lock knob. 



Loosen the edge guide set knob 
located on the top leading edge of 
the saw base. 

Insert the edge guide in the slot just 
below the retaining screw. 
Slide the edge guide until it is insert- 
ed through a slot provided on the left 
hand side of the saw base. 
Determine the width of cut needed 
for your project and slide the edge 
guide using the scale provided. 
Tighten the edge guide set knob. 
Always double check the distance 
between the tip of the blade to the 
inside edge of the edge guide. Blade 
thicknesses can very, causing the 
scale on the edge guide to read inac- 
curately. 



AWARNING 

Adjust saw base so that approximate- 
ly V" of the blade is exposed past the 
thickness of the workpiece to help 
avoid potential kick-back. 



AWARNING 

The Model G9906 was specifically 
designed for cutting wood, plastic 
and concrete. Do not modify and/or 
use this machine for any other pur- 
pose. Modifications or improper use 
of this tool will void the warranty. If

OPERATIONS, CONT'D 



Guide Notches 

The saw is provided with two guide notch- 
es for either 45° or 90° cuts. These are 
located on the leading edge of the saw 
base. The notches are used for following a 
line through a cut. It should be noted that 
these are provided for one blade thickness. 
Blades without carbide teeth or with car- 
bide teeth that are thinner or thicker may 
render the guide notches inaccurate. 



Setting the Blade Angle 

1. Loosen the black angle locking 
knobs located at the leading and 
trailing edge of the saw base. 

2. Rotate the saw base until the index 
pointer is at the desired angle and 
tighten knobs. 

3. For best results always check the 
blade angle with a protractor or angle 
guide before making a cut. Make a 
test cut into scrap lumber and check 
the angle of the cut. Readjust as nec- 
essary. 

AWARNING 

Avoid kickback hazards! If saw motor 
stalls during cut release the trigger 
immediately. Determine the cause of 
the problem and rectify before contin- 
uing cut. 



Operating the Saw 

1. Ensure the blade is secure. 

2. Grasp the hand grip with one hand. 
Use the hand you would use most 
often: if you are right handed use the 
right. 

3. Grasp the stabilizing hand grip with 
the other hand. 

4. Place the leading edge of the saw on 
the edge of the board to be cut. Align 
the guide notch to a reference line or 
the edge guide to the end of the 
board. 

5. Ensure the blade will not contact the 
board during start up by pulling saw 
away from the edge of the board. 

6. Pull the trigger to activate the saw. 

7. Slowly feed saw through the cut. 

8. Let go of the trigger when finished 
with the cut. 



AWARNING 

Like all power tools, there is danger 
associated with the Model G9906. 
Accidents are frequently caused by 
lack of familiarity or failure to pay 
attention. Use this tool with respect 
and caution to lessen the possibility of 
operator injury. If normal safety pre- 
cautions are overlooked or ignored, 
serious personal injury may occur.

Changing Blades 

MAKE SURE SAW IS UNPLUGGED! 

1. Rotate the blade guard clockwise to 
reveal the blade. 

2. While holding the blade guard open, 
place the saw onto a secure surface 
engaging the blade teeth onto the 
surface. 

3. While maintaining downward pres- 
sure on the saw, remove the retaining 
screw and washer from the center of 
the blade. 

4. Note the orientation of the teeth. They 
are pointed toward the leading edge 
base of the saw. Be careful to avoid 
touching the saw teeth and slip the 
blade out of the saw. 

5. Ensuring the teeth on the new blade 
are in the correct orientation, slide the 
blade into the slot on the bottom edge 
of the closed blade guard. 

6. Carefully center the blade over the 
arbor and replace the washer and 
retaining screw. 

7. Tighten the retaining screw in the 
same manner as it was removed. 



ACAUTION 

Saw blades are sharp. Use care when 
handling. Blades may cut or nick fin- 
gers or hands causing lacerations, 
disfigurement or disability.

OPERATING TIPS AND 
MAINTNENACE 



Guidelines and Tips 

Avoid overloading the saw. Always use 
sharp saw blades. Do not apply 
excessive pressure to the saw while 
using. If the speed drops abnormally, 
decrease pressure immediately. If 
the blade stops abruptly or becomes 
jammed, release the trigger at once. 

Ensure the safety of the workplace. 
Clear the work area of all parts and 
debris that may cause injury by flying 
objects. Securely fix the object to be 
sawn in a vise or otherwise clamp to 
avoid injury. Do not attempt to hold 
workpiece by hand. 

Inspect the saw before use. Run the saw 
before using to ensure all parts are 
running smoothly and there are no 
abnormal sounds or sparks. If any 
defect is found, have unit serviced. 

Match your feed rate to the material. 
Use a lower rate of feeding the saw 
through the material when cutting 
hard materials. In softer material 
such as drywall or soft woods, you 
can feed the saw faster. 

Know your worksite. Only saw as deep 
as necessary. Check behind walls for 
for wires, other electrical hazards, or 
plumbing. 



Maintenance 

Keep the saw free from dirt and grease. 



ACAUTION 

Before starting saw, insure the 
wrench has been removed from the 
arbor. If not removed, the wrench 
could be propelled into the air and 
may cause serious personal injury. 



AWARNING 

Disassembly and improper reassem- 
bly of this device can result in electri- 
cal shock danger. Always have this 
device serviced by an qualified elec- 
trical repair technician. Serious injury 
will result. 



AWARNING 

Operating this equipment has the 
potential to propel debris into the air 
which can cause eye injury. Always 
wear safety glasses or goggles when 
operating equipment. Be certain the 
safety glasses you wear meet the 
appropriate standards of the 
American National Standards 
Institute (ANSI).
