BE SURE to read and understand all instructions.
Failure to fellow all instructions listed below may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and
dark areas invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. ALWAYS keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
1. 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.
2. Double insulation [] eliminates the need for the three-wire grounded power
cord and grounded power supply system. Applicable only to Class II
(double insulated) tools.
3. Before plugging in the tool, BE SURE that the outlet voltage supplied is
within the voltage marked on the tool's data plate. DO NOT use "AC only"
rated tools with a DC power supply.
4. ALWAYS 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.
5. If operating the power tool in damp locations is unavoidable, ALWAYS
use a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter to supply power to your tool.
ALWAYS wear electrician's
rubber gloves and footwear in
damp conditions.
6. DO NOT expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
7. DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to carry the tools or pull
the plu.g from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately.
Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.
