• 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 outside,
use an outdoor extension cord marked
"W-A" or "W." These cords are rated for
outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric
shock.
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.
° 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
o Use clamps
or other
practical
way to
secure
and support
the workpiece
to a
stable
platform.
Holding the work by
hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
• Do not force tool. Use the correct
tool
for your application.
The correct tool will
do the job better and safer at the rate for
which it is designed.
° Do not use tool if switch
does not turn
it on or off. Any tool that cannot
be
controlled
with the switch is dangerous
and must be repaired.
• Disconnect
the plug from
the power
source
before
making
any
adjustments,
changing
accessories,
or
storing
the tool.
Such preventive
safety
measures
reduce
the risk of starting
the
tool accidentally.
• Store
idle tools
out of reach
of children
and other
untrained
persons.
Tools are
dangerous
in the hands of untrained
users.
Maintain
tools
with care. Keep cutting
tools
sharp and clean.
Properly
maintained
tools, with sharp cutting
edges
are less likely to bind and are
easier to control.
Check for misalignment
or binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect the
tools operation. If damaged, have the
tool serviced before using. Many
accidents are caused by poorly
maintained tools.
Use only accessories
that are
recommended
by the manufacturer
for
your model. Accessories
that may be
suitable
for one tool, may become
hazardous
when used on another
tool.
Service
Tool service
must
be performed
only
by qualified
repair personnel.
Service
or maintenance
performed
by unqualified
personnel
could result in a risk of injury.
When
servicing
a tool, use only
identical
replacement
parts.
Follow
instructions
in the Maintenance
section
of this manual.
Use of
unauthorized
parts or failure to follow
