• Do not use a 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter
unless permitted by local and national codes and
ordinances. (A 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter
is not permitted in Canada.)
Where a 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter is
permitted, the rigid green tab or terminal on the side
of the adapter must be securely connected to a
permanent electrical ground such as a properly
grounded water pipe, a properly grounded outlet box
or a properly grounded wire system.
• Many cover plate screws, water pipes and outlet
boxes are not properly grounded. To ensure proper
ground, grounding means must be tested by a quali-
fied electrician.
EXTENSION CORDS
• The use of any extension cord will cause some drop
in voltage and loss of power.
• Wires of the extension cord must be of sufficient size
to carry the current and maintain adequate voltage.
• Use the table to determine the minimum wire size
(A.W.G.) extension cord.
• Use only 3-wire extension cords having 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which
accept the tool plug.
• If the extension cord is worn, cut or damaged in any
way, replace it immediately.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
WARNING:
Make sure unit is turned off and discon-
nected from power source before inspecting any wiring.
The motor is assembled with an approved three con-
ductor cord to be used on 120 volts as indicated. The
power supply to the motor is controlled by a double
pole locking switch.
The power lines are connected directly to the switch.
The green ground line must remain securely fastened
to the frame to properly protect against electrical shock.
A manual reset overload protector is installed in line
with the power supply to the motor. If the planer is over-
loaded, the protector will break the circuit.
