ARNING:
Read and understand all instruc-
tions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below,
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK
AREA
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate
power tools in explosive
atmo-
spheres,
such as in the presence of flammable
liq-
uids, gases, or dust.
Power tools create sparks which
may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders,
children, and visitors away while
operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
ELECTRICAL
SAFETY
Double insulated
tools are equipped
with a polar-
ized 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.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such
as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There
is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
grounded.
Don't expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the tools or pull the plug from an outlet. Keep cord
away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts.
Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged
cords increase the risk of electric shock.
When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor
extension cord marked "W-A" or "W". These cords
are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric
shock.
PERSONAL
SAFETY
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use com-
mon 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.
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.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off
before plugging in. Carrying tools with your finger on
the switch or plugging in tools that have the switch on
invites accidents.
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.
Do not overreach.
Keep proper footing
and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enables better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Use safety equipment.
Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry.
Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
TOOL USE AND CARE
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.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your ap-
plication.
The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
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.
Disconnect the plug from power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of the reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the
hands of untrained users.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cut-
ting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
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.
Use only accessories
that are recommended
by the
manufacturer
for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool, may become hazardous when
used on another tool.
Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-
based products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
