metal parts of the tool "live" causing an electrical
shock to the operator.

a counter clockwise direction. The natural tendency
of the tool to pull to the left will cause a "hugging"
action toward the outlet box, resulting in a neater cut.

CUTTING BIT COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP. A
spinning bit can come in contact with the surface and
pull it out of your control.

adjustments can cause unexpected shifting of the tool,
resulting in loss of control and injury from the bit or
cutting tool being thrown.
