WARNING: Read and understand all
instructions. Failure to follow all
instructions listed below, may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal
injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Work Area
• Keep your work area clean and well
lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in
explosive atmospheres, such as in
the presence of flammable liquids,
gases, or dust. Power tools create
sparks which may ignite the dust or
fumes.
• Keep bystanders, children, and
visitors away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
Electrical Safety
• Double insulated tools are equipped
with 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 in the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician to install a polarized
outlet. Do not change the plug in
any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three wire
grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
• Avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your
body is grounded.
• Don't expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use
the cord to carry the tools or pull
the plug from an outlet. Keep cord
away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Replace damaged
cords immediately. Damaged cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
• When operating a power tool

Personal Safety
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing
and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use
tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result
in serious personal injury,
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and
gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can
be caught in moving parts. Air vents
cover moving parts and should be
avoided.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure
switch is off before plugging in.
Carrying tools with your finger on the
switch or plugging in tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting keys or wrenches
before turning the tool on. A wrench
or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in
personal injury.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times.
Proper footing and balance enables
better control of the tool in unexpected
situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
Tool Use and Care
• Use clamps or other practical way to
secure and support the workpiece
