To reduce exposure to these chemicals:
Work in a well ventilated area
Work with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially
designed to filter out microscopic particles
Keep the machine and work area clean
Servicing requires much care and specialized
knowledge of the system and should be performed only by a qualified service technician.
For service, return the machine to the nearest repair center in the original packaging.
The CompuCarve woodworking
machine is controlled by precision electronics,
tt should
be connected only to a power supply that is 120 volts nominal,
60 Hz, AC (normal
It should not be connected to a 240-volt power supply. This tool will
not operate on direct current (DC). If the machine does not operate when plugged into
an outlet, check to see that the fuse or circuit breaker for the outlet is not open and that
the outlet has power available.
When using a power tool at an extended distance from the power source, use an
extension cord heavy enough to carry the current that the tool will draw. An undersized
extension cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of power and causing
potential damage to the machine.
Use the chart provided below to determine the
minimum wire size required in an extension cord. Only jacketed cords listed by
Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
Length of Extension
Cord vs. Wire Size (American
Wire Gage - AWG)
Up to 10 feet - 18 AWG minimum
10 to 50 feet - 14 AWG minimum
Over 50 feet - not recommended
When working with the tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is designed for outside
use (This is indicated by the letters WA on the power cord's outer jacket).
Before using
an extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
