WARNING: Read and
understandall instructions,
Failure to follow all instructions listed
below may result in electric shock, fire
and/or serious personal injury.
• Keep your work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered benches and dark areas invite
• 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.
can cause you to lose
• Double insulated tools are equipped with
a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other.) This plug will fit in a polarized
extension cord 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
to make it fit your extension cord. 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 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 extension 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 "#V_'These cords are rated for outdoor
use and reduce the risk of electric shock.
• 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 with the switch on
invites accidents.
• 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.
• Use clamps or other practical ways 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. A 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
