Safety Instructions For All Tools

• KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
• CONSIDER WORK AREA ENVIRONMENT. Don't expose power tools to rain.
Don't use power tools in damp or wet locations. Keep work area well lit. Do not
use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases.
• GUARD AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK. Prevent body contact with grounded
surfaces. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerator enclosures.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. Do not let visitors contact tool or extension cord. All
visitors should be kept away from work area.
• STORE IDLE TOOLS. When not in use, tools should be stored in dry, and high
or locked-up place — out of reach of children.
• DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it
was intended.
• USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force small tool or attachment to do the job of a
heavy-duty tool. Don't use tool for purpose not intended.
• DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught
in moving parts. Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are recommended
when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if operation is dusty.
• DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by cord or yank it to disconnect from
receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
• SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work. It's safer than using your
hand and it frees both hands to operate tool.
• DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
• MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and
safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing acces-
sories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged, have repaired by autho-
rized service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if dam-
aged. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.
• DISCONNECT OR LOCK OFF TOOLS when not in use, before servicing, and
when changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters.
• REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to see
that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning it on.
• AVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don't carry tool with finger on switch.
Be sure switch is off when plugging in.

When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the
current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows
the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating.
If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heav-
ier the cord.

should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless
otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Have defective
switches replaced by authorized service center. Do not use tool if switch does
not turn it on and off.
