Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jew-

Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools
allow you to become complacent and ignore tool

Power tool use and care
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 de-
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.
Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or re-
move the battery pack, if detachable, from the power
tool before making any adjustments, changing ac-
cessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool
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.
Maintain power tools and accessories. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of
parts and any other condition that may affect the
power tool's operation. If damaged, have the power

tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly main-
tained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less
likely to bind and are easier to control.
Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into ac-
count the working conditions and the work to be per-
formed. Use of the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean and
free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and grasping
surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety instructions for planers
Wait for the cutter to stop before setting the tool
down. An exposed rotating cutter may engage the sur-
face leading to possible loss of control and serious injury.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces,
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
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the workpiece by your hand or against the body leaves it
unstable and may lead to loss of control.
Only bring the power tool into contact with the work-
piece when switched on. Otherwise there is danger of
kickback if the cutting tool jams in the workpiece.
Do not allow the chip ejector to come into contact with
your hands. You may be injured by rotating parts.
Never plane over metal objects, nails or screws. Cut-
ters and cutter shafts could become damaged and cause
Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are
hidden in the work area or call the local utility com-
pany for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead
to fire and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to
explosion. Penetrating a water line causes property dam-
age or may cause an electric shock.
While working, always hold the planer in such a way
that the planer base plate lies flat against the work-
piece. Otherwise the planer could slip and cause injury.
