SAFETY
RULES
_WARNING:
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed
below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVETHESEINSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches
and dark areas invite
accidents.
• 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.
• Keep bystanders,
children,
and visitors
away while operating
a power
tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
• 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. Double
Insulation
[]
eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
• Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and
refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of eIectric shock if your body is grounded.
• Don't
expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool wilI
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 medica-
tion. 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 bal-
ance 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
• Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable
platform.
HoIding the work by hand or against your body is unstabJe and may Iead to loss
of control.
• Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application.
The correct tool wilI 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 tooI 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
tooIs 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 tool's 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
Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of electric shock or injury.
_\ SPECIFIC

running over rated speed can fly apart and cause
injury.

_ADDITIONAL
SAFETY
RULES
FOR ROTARY
TOOLS
ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN USING THIS TOOL!
• If accessory
jams, turn tool off and disconnect
from power supply before freeing
accessory
from the jam.
• 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.
• When using cutoff
wheels always have the work securely
clamped.
Never attempt to
hold the work with one hand while using any cutting accessory.
• Keep hands away from rotating accessories.
• Allow accessories
and collets to cool before touching
with bare hands. They will be
hot after using.
• Insure there are no foreign
objects
in the workpiece
such as nails which if hit could
cause loss of control of unit.
• Always
feed the cutter into the material in the same direction
as the chips are being
thrown.
Feeding the tool in the wrong direction can cause Joss of control.
• Keep handles
dry, clean, free from oil and grease. This will enable better control of the
tool.
• When cutting wood, extra care should be taken to avoid inhalation and minimize skin
contact.
• Wear ear protection. Noise IeveI may be ampIified when using tool in enclosed spaces.
• The RTX has an internal
speed control, never use an external
speed control
on this
unit.
• Do not use worn accessories.
• Do not use grinding wheels that have cracks.
• When turning
tool on, hold it away from your face, since a damaged
accessory
could come apart.
