PERSONAL
SAFETY
1, ALWAYS stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common 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.
2. ALWAYS dress properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry, Pull
back long hair. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothing, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
3. ALWAYS avoid accidental starting. BE SURE switch is in the "Off"
position before plugging in. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch
or plugging in tools that have the switch in the "On" position invites accidents.
4. ALWAYS 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.
5. DO NOT overreach. ALWAYS keep proper footing and balance at all
times. Proper footing and balance enables better control of the too! in
unexpected situations.
6. ALWAYS use safety equipment. ALWAYS wear eye protection. Dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used
for appropriate
conditions
