PROPOSITION 65 WARNING
WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining
wood products can expose you to wood dust, a
substance known to the State of California to cause
cancer. Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask
or other safeguards for personal protection. For more
information go to: www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/wood
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-treated
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.
Handling the power cord on this product may expose
you to chemicals known to the state of California to
cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive
harm. Wash hands after handling.

READ INSTRUCTION MANUAL: To reduce the risk of
injury, user and all bystanders must read instruction
manual before using this product.
Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power
sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities. Wear protective clothing and
wash exposed areas with soap and water. Allowing
dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may
promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
WARNING: Use of this tool can generate and/
or disperse dust, which may cause serious and
permanent respiratory or other injury. Always use
NIOSH/OSHA approved respiratory protection
appropriate for the dust exposure. Direct particles
away from face and body.
WARNING: Always wear proper personal hearing
protection that conforms to ANSI S12.6 (S3.19)
during use. Under some conditions and duration
of use, noise from this product may contribute to
CAUTION: When not in use, place tool on its side on
a stable surface where it will not cause a tripping or
falling hazard. Some tools will stand upright but may
be easily knocked over.
Air vents often cover moving parts and should be
avoided. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
ELECTRICAL SPECIFICATIONS AND SAFETY
Power Supply And Motor Specification
WARNING: To avoid electrical hazards, fire hazards,
or damage to the tool, use proper circuit protection.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tool. Your
grinder is wired at the factory for 120 V operation.
Connect to a 120 V, 3.2 Amp circuit and use a 3.2 Amp
time delay fuse or circuit breaker. To avoid shock or
fire, if power cord is worn, cut, or damaged in any
way, have it replaced immediately.
WARNING: This tool must be grounded while in
use to protect the operator from electrical shock.
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION OR BREAKDOWN,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
currents and reduces the risk of electric shock. This tool is
equipped with an electrical cord that has an equipment-
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into a matching receptacle that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. If it will not fit the
receptacle, have the proper receptacle installed by a qualified
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor
with the green insulation (with or without yellow stripes) is
the equipment grounding conductor. If repair or replacement
of the electrical cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the
equipment grounding conductor to a live terminal.
CHECK with a qualified electrician or service person if you
do not completely understand the grounding instructions,
or if you are not certain the tool is properly grounded.
USE only 3-wire extension cords that have three-
pronged grounding plugs with three-pole receptacles
that accept the tool's plug. Repair or replace damaged
or worn cords immediately.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tool. This circuit
must not be less than #18 wire and should be protected with
a 3.2 Amp time lag fuse. Before connecting the motor to the
power line, make sure the switch is in the off position and
the electric current is rated the same as the current stamped
on the motor nameplate. Running at a lower voltage will
damage the motor.
GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION CORDS USE THE PROPER
EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your extension cord is in good
condition. Use an extension cord heavy enough to carry the
current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power, overheating
