RULESFORSAFE OPERATION(Continued)
• .
PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing
protection during extended periods of operation.
DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by
cord or yank it to disconnect from receptacle.
Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold
work. It is safer than using your hand and it frees
both hands to operate tool.
DO NOT OVERREACH.
Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. Do not use on a ladder or
unstable support. Secure tools when working at
elevated positions.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for best and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories.
DISCONNECT
TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, tools
should be disconnected from power supply.
REMOVE ADJUSTING
KEYS AND
WRENCHES.
Form habit of checking to see that
keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from
tool before turning it on.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL
STARTING.
Do not carry
plugged-in tool with finger on switch. Be sure
switch is off when plugging in.
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.
OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When
tool is used outdoors, use only extension cords
suitable for use outdoors. Outdoor approved
cords are marked with the suffix W-A, for
example - SJTW-A or SJOW-A.
KEEP BITS CLEAN AND SHARP. Sharp bits
minimize stalling and kickback.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM DRILLING AREA.
Keep hands away from bits. Do not reach under-
neath work while bit is rotating. Do not attempt to
remove material while bit is rotating.
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE
ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor
could ignite fumes.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY
and if
damaged, have repaired at your nearest Sears
Repair Center. Stay constantly aware of cord
location.
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS
PERIODICALLY
and replace if damaged.
KEEP HANDLES DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE
FROM OIL AND GREASE. Always use a clean
cloth when cleaning. Never use brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, or any
strong solvents to clean your tool.
STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE CONTROL.
Watch what you are doing and use common
sense. Do not operate tool when you are tired.
Do not rush.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use
of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged
should be carefully checked to determine that it
will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
mounting and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or other part that is
damaged should be properly repaired or re-
placed by an authorized service center.
DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT
TURN IT ON AND OFF. Have defective switches
replaced by an authorized service center.
DRILLING INTO ELECTRICAL WIRING IN
WALLS CAN CAUSE DRILL BIT AND CHUCK
TO BECOME ELECTRICALLY
LIVE. Do not
touch the chuck or metal housing when drilling
into a wall; grasp only the insulated handle
provided on the tool.
INSPECT FOR and remove all nails from lumber
before drilling.
DO NOT operate this tool while under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or any medication.
POLARIZED
PLUGS. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this tool has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug
in any way.
WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL
CRAFTSMAN REPLACEMENT
PARTS.

frequently and use them to instruct others who
may use this tool. If you loan someone this tool,
loan them these instructions also.
