 Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
 Do not operate power tools in explosive atmo-
spheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
 Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
eLectricaL SaFetY
 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.
 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.
 Do not expose power tools to rain or wet condi-
tions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk
of electric shock.
 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.

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.

jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
 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.
 Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
