Planer Safety Rules
 Wait for the cutter to stop before setting the tool down.
An exposed rotating cutter may engage the surface leading
to possible loss of control and serious injury.
 Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces on-
ly, because the cutter may contact its own cord. Cutting
a "live" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power
tool "live" and could give the operator an electric shock.
 Use clamps or another practical way to secure and sup-
port the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by your hand or against the body leaves it unstable
and may lead to loss of control.
 Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are
hidden in the work area or call the local utility company
for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explo-
sion. Penetrating a water line causes property damage or
may cause an electric shock.
 Do not reach into the chip ejector with your hands. They
could be injured by rotating parts.
 Apply the machine to the workpiece only when
switched on. Otherwise there is danger of kickback when
the cutting tool jams in the workpiece.
 When working, always hold the planer in such a manner
that the planer base plate faces flat on the workpiece.
Otherwise the planer can become wedged and lead to inju-
 Never plane over metal objects, nails or screws. The
planer blade and the blade shaft can become damaged and
lead to increased vibrations.
Products sold in GB only: Your product is fitted with a
BS 1363/A approved electric plug with internal fuse (ASTA
approved to BS 1362).
If the plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place by an author-
ised customer service agent. The replacement plug should
have the same fuse rating as the original plug.
The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard and should never be inserted into a mains sock-
et elsewhere.
Products sold in AUS and NZ only: Use a residual current de-
vice (RCD) with a rated residual current of 30 mA or less.
