A
WARNING:
Read and understand
all instruc-
tions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below,
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
personal injury.
SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
[] Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
[] Do not operate
power tools in explosive
atmo-
spheres,
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 polar-
ized 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 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 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 com-
mon 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 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 balance enables better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
[] Use safety equipment.
Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
[] Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
[] Do not use on a ladder or unstable
support.
Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
TOOL USE AND CARE
[] Use clamps or other practical
way 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 ap-
plication.
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.
Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
[] Disconnect the plug from 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 the 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 tools with sharp cut-
ting 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.
[] Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-
based products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
