REMOVING
THE GUARD (SANDING
ONLY)
Turn off and unplug the tool. Remove the
clamp bolt and the three retaining screws
as shown in Figure 7.
PRECAUTIONS
TO TAKE
WHEN
SANDING
PAINT
Sanding of lead based paint is NOT
RECOMMENDED
due to the difficulty
of
controlling
the contaminated
dust. The
greatest
danger of lead poisoning
is to
children
and pregnant
women.
Since it is difficult to identify whether
or
not a paint contains
lead without a
chemical
analysis,
we recommend
the
following
precautions
when sanding
any
paint:
,
No children
or pregnant
women
should
enter the work area where
the paint
sanding
is being done until all cleanup
is completed.
.
A dustmask
or respirator
should
be
worn by all persons
entering
the work
area. The filter should
be replaced
daily
or whenever
the wearer
has difficulty
breathing.
NOTE:
Only those dustmasks
suitable
for working
with lead paint dust and
fumes
should
be used. Ordinary
painting
masks
do not offer this protection.
See
your local hardware
dealer for the
NIOSH
approved
proper
mask.
ENVIRONMENTAL
SAFETY
°
Paint should
be removed
in such a
manner
as to minimize
the amount
of
dust generated.
,,
Areas
where
paint removal
is occurring
should
be sealed
with plastic
sheeting
of 4 mils thickness.
°
Sanding
should
be done in a manner
to
reduce
tracking
of paint dust outside
the work area.
