3/8 in. drill-driver variable speed / reversible double insulated


All parts represent an important part of the double
insulation system and should be serviced only at a
Sears Service Center.
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts.
Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various
types of commercial solvents and may be damaged
by their use. Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon
dust, etc.
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based
products, penetrating
oils, etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They
contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic.
It has been found that electric tools are subject to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure when
they are used on fiberglass boats, sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster. The
chips and grindings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electric tool parts, such as bearings,
brushes, commutators,
etc. Consequently,
it is not
that this tool be used for extended
work on any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling
compounds, or piaster. During any use on these
materials, it is extremely important that the tool is
cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a
sufficient amount of high-grade lubricant for the life of
the unit under normal operating conditions. Therefore,
no further lubrication is required.
Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields during power tool
operation or when blowing dust. If operation is
dusty, also wear a dust mask.
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric
power tools, which eliminates the need for the usual
three-wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal
parts are isolated from the internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation. Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be performed only by a qualified service
technician. For service, we suggest you return the tool
to your nearest Sears Service Center for repair.
Always use original factory replacement parts when
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating,
use an extension cord that is heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
Awire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is recom-
mended for an extension cord 100 feet or less in
length. When working outdoors, use an extension
cord that is suitable for outdoor use. The cord's jacket
will be marked WA.
Keep extension cords
from the
drilling area and position the cord so that it will not
get caught on lumber, tools, etc., during drilling
Check extension cords before each
use. If damaged replace immediately. Never use
tool with a damaged cord since touching the
damaged area could cause electrical shock
resulting in serious injury.
Extension cords suitable for use with your drill are
available at your nearest Sears Retail Store.
