LASER LINE
WARNING: LASER RADIATION.
Never aim the beam at a workpiece
with a reflective surface. Bright shiny
reflective sheet steel or similar reflective
surfaces are not recommended for laser
use. Reflective surfaces could direct the
beam back toward the operator.
DANGER: LASER RADIATION.
AVOID DIRECT EYE EXPOSURE. Do
not stare into the laser light source.
Never aim light at another person or
object other than the workpiece. Laser
light can damage your eyes.
WARNING: DO NOT use tinted
glasses to enhance the laser light.
Tinted glasses will reduce overall vision
for the application and interfere with the
normal operation of the tool.
LASER SWITCH (FIG. 16)
To turn the laser on, push forward on the
laser on/off switch (2) to activate the
laser line (25) as shown in figure 16.
