TO USE GRINDER
Hold your angle grinder with one hand
on the body and the other hand firmly
around the side handle as shown
in
• Figure
11.
Always
position
the guard so that as
much of the exposed
disc as possible
is
pointing
away from you.
Be prepared
for a stream
of sparks
when the disc touches
the metal.
For best tool control,
material
removal,
and minimum
overloading,
maintain
an
angle between
the disc and work
surface
(Fig. 12) of approximately
30 °
when grinding
and 10°-15 ° when
sanding.
Exert light pressure
on abrasive
discs for
efficient
operation.
Pushing
too hard will
cause a drop in speed
and may result in
motor overload
and damage.
Use caution when working
into corners
as contact
with the intersecting
surface
may cause the grinder to jump or twist.
A
_L CAUTION!
Always
wear eye
protection
while
operating
this power
tool.
OVERLOAD
Overloading
will cause damage
to the
motor of your angle grinder. This can
happen
if your angle grinder
is subjected
to heavy use for prolonged
pedods
of
time. Do not in any circumstances,
attempt
to exert too much pressure
on
your angle grinder to speed up your work.
The abrasive
discs operate
more
efficiently
when light pressure
is exerted,
thus avoiding
a drop in the speed of your
angle grinder.
CLEANING
Blowing
dust and grit out of the motor
housing
using compressed
air is a
necessary
maintenance
procedure.
Dust
and grit from metal grinding
often
accumulate
on interior surfaces
and could
create an electrical
shock hazard if not
cleaned
out.
Use only mild soap and damp cloth to
clean the tool. Never let any liquid get
inside the tool; never immerse
any part of
the tool into a liquid.
IMPORTANT:
To assure product SAFETY
and RELIABILITY,
repairs, maintenance
and adjustment
should
be performed
by
Sears
Service
Centers.
LUBRICATION
Sears Craftsman
tools are properly
lubricated
at the factory
and are ready for
use. Tools should be lubricated
regularly
every year depending
on usage. (Tools
used on heavy duty jobs and tools
exposed
to heat may require more
frequent
lubrication.)
This lubrication
should
be attempted
only by trained
power
tool repair specialists
such as those at
Sears Service Centers
or in other qualified
service
organizations.
ACCESSORIES
Use only Craftsman
accessories
with your
tool. These accessories
are available
at
extra cost from your local Sears store or
Sears Service
Center.
,_ CAUTION:
Using accessories
not sold
by Sears
may be hazardous
and lead to
injury
or tool damage.
