16.
USE ONLY RECOMMENDED
ACCESSORIES.
Use of incorrect or improper accessories could
cause serious injury to the operator and cause
damage to the tool. If in doubt, check the instruction
manual that comes with that particular accessory.
17. NEVER LEAVE A RUNNING TOOL UNATTENDED.
Turn the power switch to the "OFF" position. DO
NOT leave the tool until it has come to a complete
stop.
18. DO NOT STAND ON A TOOL. Serious injury could
result if the tool tips over or you accidentally contact
the tool.
19. DO NOT store anything above or near the tool
where anyone might try to stand on the tool to
reach it.
20. MAINTAIN YOUR BALANCE. DO NOT extend
yourself over the tool. Wear oil resistant rubbersoled
shoes. Keep floor clear of debris, grease, and wax.
21. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Always keep tools
clean and in good working order. Keep all blades
and tool bits sharp.
22. EACH AND EVERY TIME, CHECK FOR DAMAGED
PARTS PRIOR TO USING THE TOOL. Carefully
check all guards to see that they operate properly,
are not damaged, and perform their intended func-
tions. Check for alignment, binding or breaking of
moving parts. A guard or other part that is damaged
should be immediately repaired or replaced.
23. CHILDPROOF
THE WORKSHOP AREA by remov-
ing switch keys, unplugging tools from the electrical
receptacles, and using padlocks.
24 DO NOT OPERATE TOOL IF UNDER THE INFLU-
ENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL.
25. SECURE ALL WORK. Use clamps or jigs to secure
the workpiece. This is safer than attempting to hold
the workpiece with your hands.
26. USE A PROPER EXTENSION CORD IN GOOD
CONDITION. When using an extension cord, be
sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current
your product will draw. The table at right shows the
correct size to use depending on cord length and
nameplate amperage rating. If in doubt, use the
next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number,
the larger diameter of the extension cord. If in doubt
of the proper size of an extension cord, use a short-
er and thicker cord. An undersized cord will cause a
drop in line voltage resulting in a loss of power and
overheating. USE ONLY A 3-WIRE EXTENSION
CORD THAT HAS A 3-PRONG GROUNDING
PLUG AND A 3-POLE RECEPTACLE THAT
ACCEPTS THE TOOL'S PLUG.

EXTENSION
CORDS
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, be sure
it is marked with the suffix "W-A" ("W" in Canada) to
indicate that it is acceptable for outdoor use.
Be sure your extension cord is properly
sized, and
in good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified person
before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat, and damp or wet areas.
