Maintenance Instructions may create a
risk of electric shock or injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
*
Always use proper guard with
grinding wheel. A guard protects
operator from broken wheel fragments.
*
Accessories must be rated for at
least the speed recommended
on the
tool warning label. Wheels and other
accessories running over rated speed
can fly apart and cause injury.
-
Hold tool by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an
operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Contact with a "live" wire will make
exposed metal parts of the tool "live"
and shock the operator.
ADDITIONAL
SAFETY
RULES
,
ALWAYS
WEAR
EYE PROTECTION.
KEEP GUARDS
IN PLACE.
,
Use only grinding wheels having a
maximum operating speed at least as
high as the speed specified in the
warning on the tool's label.
Before
using, inspect
recommended
accessory
for cracks or flaws. If such a
crack or flaw is evident,
discard
the
accessory.
The accessory
should
also
be inspected
whenever
you think the
tool may have been dropped.
When starting
the tool (with a new or
replacement
wheel installed)
hold the
tool in a well protected
area and let it run
for one minute.
If the wheel
has an
undetected
crack or flaw, it should
burst
in less than one minute.
Never start the
tool with a person
in line with the wheel.
This includes
the operator.
In operation,
avoid bouncing
the wheel
or giving it rough treatment.
If this
occurs, stop the tool and inspect
the
wheel.
,
ALWAYS
USE GUARDS
when grinding.
Clean your tool out periodically.

Some wood contains
preservatives
such as copper
chromium
arsenate
(CCA) which can be toxic. When
sanding
these
materials
extra care should
be taken to avoid
inhalation
and minimize
skin contact.
,_WARNING:
Use of this tool can
generate
dust containing
chemicals
known
to cause
cancer,
birth defects
or other

EXTENSION
CORDS
When
using an extension
cord, be sure to
use one 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 and overheating.
The
following
table shows the correct
size to
use depending
on cord length and
nameplate
ampere
rating. If in doubt, use
the next heavier
gage. The smaller
the
gage number, the heavier
the cord.

MOTOR
Be sure your power
supply agrees
with
nameplate
marking.
120 Volts AC only
means your tool will operate
on standard
60 Hz household
power. Do not operate
AC tools on DC. A rating of 120 volts
AC/DC
means
that your tool will operate
on standard
60 Hz AC or DC power. This
information
is printed
on the nameplate.
Lower voltage
will cause loss of power
and can result in over-heating.
All
Craftsman
tools are factory-tested;
if this
tool does not operate,
check the power
supply.
