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 throughout 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.
REPLACEMENT 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 outlet. 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 tool on.
• 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").
• DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
