8. ALWAYS make sure that your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord be sure to use one that is heavy enough
to carry the current that your tool will draw. A wire gauge size (A.W.G,)
of at least 16 is recommended
for an extension 100 feet or less in
length, Using an extension cord that is over 100 feet in length is not
If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. Smaller gauge
wires, have greater capacity (16 gauge wire has more capacity than
18 gauge wire), An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage,
resulting in loss of power and overheating.
9, ALWAYS inspect and remove all nails from lumber before sanding.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
10. DO NOT use the tool while tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol or any medication.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire or serious personal injury.

chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm. Some examples of these chemicals
• Lead from lead-based paints.
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products.
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending upon how often you do
this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:
• Work in a well-ventilated area.
• Work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that
are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
