Important Safety Instructions
WARNING: When using electric tools, basic
safety precautions should always be followed
to reduce risk of ﬁre, electric shock, and
personal injury, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Safety Warnings: Double Insulation
Double insulated tools are constructed through-
out with two separate layers of electrical
insulation or one double thickness of insulation
between you and the tool's electrical system.
Tools built with this insulation system are not
intended to be grounded. As a result, your tool
is equipped with a two prong plug which
permits you to use extension cords without
concern for maintaining a ground connection.
NOTE: Double insulation does not take the place
of normal safety precautions when operating this
tool. The insulation system is for added protection
against injury resulting from a possible electrical
insulation failure within the tool.
R eplacement parts: When servicing all tools,
USE IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS.
Repair or replace damaged cords.
Safety Instructions: Polarized Plugs
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this
equipment has a polarized 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
into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not
ﬁt, contact a qualiﬁed electrician to install the
proper utlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
Safety Instructions For All Tools
• KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in working order.
• REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES.
Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from spindle before turning
• KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
• DON'T USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT.
Don't use power tools in damp or wet locations, or
expose them to rain. Keep work area well lighted.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept
at a safe distance from work area.
• MAKE WORKSHOP KID PROOF with padlocks,
master switches, or by removing starter keys.
• DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and be
safer at the rate for which it was designed.
• USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force tool or attachment to
do a job for which it was not designed.
• WEAR PROPER APPAREL. No loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry
which may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip
footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
• ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face
or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty. Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses, they are
NOT safety glasses.
• SECURE WORK. Use clamps or vise when you
cannot secure the workpiece on the table and
against the fence by hand or when your hand will be
dangerously close to the blade (within 6").
