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.
Tool Use and Care
:
Service
Tool service must be performed only by
qualified repair personnel. Service or mainte-
nance performed by unqualified personnel could
result in a risk of injury.
When servicing
a tool, use only identical
replacement
parts. Follow
Instructions
in
Maintenance
section
of this manual.
Use of
unauthorized
parts or failure to follow Mainte-
nance Instructions may create a risk of electric
shock or injury.
Specific
Safety Rules for Sanders
Use clamps
or other practical
way to secure
and support
the workpiece
to a stable
plat-
form. 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 application.
The correct tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it is de-
signed.
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 the power source
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing the tool. Such preven-
tive safety measures reduce risk of starting the
tool accidentally.
Store Idle tools out of 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 cutting 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 condi-
tion that may affect the tools 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. Accesso-
ries that may be suitable for one tool, may be-
come hazardous when used on another tool.
Hold tool by insulated
gripping
surfaces
when
performing
an operation
where the tool may
contact
hidden wiring
or its own cord. Contact
with a "live" wire will make exposed metal parts of
the tool "live" and shock the operator.
Never
use this
or any power
sander
for wet
sanding or liquid polishing.
Failure to comply can
result in electrical shock causing
serious
injury or
worse.
Keep hands away from sanding area.
Additional
Rules for Safe Operation
Know your power tool. Read operator's manual
carefully. Leam its applications and limitations as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
tool.
• Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eye-
glasses have only impact-resistant lenses; they
are not safety glasses.
Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if
the operation is dusty.
Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
Don't abuse cord. Never carry tool by cord or
yank it to disconnect from receptacle.
Keep cord
from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
MAKE
SURE YOUR EXTENSION
CORD
IS IN
GOOD
CONDITION.
When using an extension
cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry
the current your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in
loss of power and overheating.
A wire gage size
(A.W.G.)
of at least 16 is recommended
for an
extension cord 100 feet or less in length. A cord
exceeding 100 feet is not recommended.
If in
doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the
gage number, the heavier the cord.
