INSTALLING CUTTING BITS - cont'd
.
.
Insert new cutting bit (4) into the collet.
[_,
WARNING
I
Insert the bit all the way into the collet and then
pull it back between 1/16"and 1/s'. This creates an
air space between the motor shaft and the bit to
help prevent overheating the bit.
Before tightening the collet on the bit, make sure
the flutes (spiral portion) of the bit are completely
visible outside the collet. Clamping the collet on
the bit flutes will result in broken bits and possible
injury.
When bit is properly placed in the collet, depress the
shaft locking button and turn the coilet nut clockwise
by hand as far as possible.
6.
Securely tighten collet nut using the wrench.
