contact with the workpiece and allow the
blade to come to full speed. Tool can
vibrate or chatter if blade speed is too slow
at beginning of cut and possibly kickback.
Check the workpiece for nails, if there are
nails, either remove or set them well
below intended finished surface. If the
planer blades strike objects like nails it may
cause the tool to kickback and serious
personal injury may result.
Unplug the planer before changing
accessories. Before plugging the tool in,
check that the trigger lock is "OFF".
Accidental start-ups may occur if planer is
plugged in while changing an accessory.
After changing blades, rotate the blade
drum to make sure blades are not hitting
any part of the blade head housing and the
blade locking screws are tight. Spinning
blades could strike tool housing and
damage tool as well as possible injury.
GFCI and personal protection devices like
electrician's rubber gloves and footwear will
further enhance your personal safety.
Do not use AC only rated tools with a DC
power supply. While the tool may appear to
work, the electrical components of the AC
rated tool are likely to fail and create a
hazard to the operator.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil
and grease. Slippery hands cannot safely
control the power tool.
Develop a periodic maintenance schedule
for your tool. When cleaning a tool be
careful not to disassemble any portion of
the tool since internal wires may be
misplaced or pinched or safety guard
return springs may be improperly
mounted. Certain cleaning agents such as
gasoline, carbon tetrachloride, ammonia,
etc. may damage plastic parts.
Risk of injury to user. The power cord must
only be serviced by a Bosch Factory Service
Center or Autho rized Bosch Service Station.
Safety Rules for Planers
Additional Safety Warnings
Always hold the tool firmly with both
hands for maximum control.
Never pull the planer backward over the
workpiece. Loss of control may occur.
Do not put fingers or any objects into the
shavings exhaust port or clean out
shavings while tool is running. Contact
with blade drum will cause injury.
Remove plug from power source if it
becomes necessary to remove chips. The
blades are hidden from view and you may
be cut if blade is contacted.
Never use dull or damaged blades. Sharp
blades must be handled with care.
Damaged blades can snap during use. Dull
blades require more force to push the tool,
possibly causing the blade to break.
Some dust created by
power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities contains chemicals known to
cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of
these chemicals are:
Lead from lead-based paints,
Crystalline silica from bricks and cement
and other masonry products, and
Arsenic and chromium from chemically-
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals: work in a well ventilated area,
and work with approved safety equipment,
such as those dust masks that are specially
designed to filter out microscopic particles.
