INTERNAL CLEANING
It has been found that electric tools are subjected to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure when
they are used on fiberglass boats and sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds or plaster. The chips
gdndings from these materials are highly abrasive to
electdc tool parts such as bearings, brushes, cemmuta:
etc. During any use on these materials it is extremely
important that the tool is cleaned frequently by blowing
with a compressed air jet,
