General safety rules

Warning! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
injury. The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed
below refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or
battery operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Work area
a. Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
b. 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.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of
electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric
shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
A moment of inattention while operating power tools may
result in serious personal injury.
b. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in
the off position before plugging in.
Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or
plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on.
A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the
power tool may result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
f.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used.
Use of these devices can reduce dust related hazards.
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power
tool for your application.
The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not
turn it on and off.
Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
