20. EACH
AND EVERY TIME, CHECK FOR DAM=
AGED PARTS PRIOR TO USING THE TOOL.
Carefully check all guards to see that they operate
properly, are not damaged, and perform their
intended functions. Check for alignment, binding or
breaking of moving parts. A guard or other part that
is damaged should be immediately repaired or
replaced.
21. CHILDPROOF
THE WORKSHOP AREA by remov-
ing switch keys, unplugging tools from the electrical
receptacles, and using padlocks.
22. DO NOT OPERATE TOOL iF UNDER THE
iNFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL.
23. SECURE ALL WORK. When it is possible, use
clamps or jigs to secure the workpiece. This is safer
than attempting to hold the workpiece with your
hands.
24. STAY ALERT, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING,
AND USE COMMON SENSE WHEN OPERATING
A POWER TOOL.
DO NOT USE A 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.
25. Use of this tool can generate and disburse dust or
other airborne particles, including wood dust,
crystalline silica dust and asbestos dust. Direct
particles away from face and body. Always operate
tool in well ventilated area and provide for proper
dust removal. Use dust collection system wherever
possible. Exposure to the dust may cause serious
and permanent respiratory or other injury, including
silicosis (a serious lung disease), cancer, and
death. Avoid breathing the dust, and avoid pro-
longed contact with dust. Allowing dust to get into
your mouth or eyes, or lay on your skin may pro-
mote absorption of harmful material. Always use
properly fitting NIOSH/OSHA approved respiratory
protection appropriate for the dust exposure, and
wash exposed areas with soap and water.
26. USE A PROPER EXTENSION CORD iN GOOD
CONDiTiON.
When using an extension cord, be
sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current
your product will draw. Please see "MiNiMUM
RECOMMENDED
GAUGE FOR EXTENSION
CORDS (AWG)" table for correct sizing of an
extension cord. If in doubt, use the next heavier
gauge.
GUIDELINES
FOR
EXTENSION
CORDS
The smaller the gauge-number,
the larger diameter of
the extension cord. If in doubt of the proper size of an
extension cord, use a shorter and thicker cord. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage result-
ing in a loss of power and overheating. USE ONLY A
3=WIRE EXTENSION CORD THAT HAS A 3=PRONG
GROUNDING
PLUG AND A 3=POLE RECEPTACLE
THAT ACCEPTS THE TOOL'S PLUG.
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, be sure it
is marked with the suffix "W-A" ("W" in Canada) to indi-
cate that it is acceptable for outdoor use.
Be sure your extension cord is properly sized, and in
good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified person
before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, exces-
sive heat, and damp or wet areas.
