WORK AREA SAFETY
1. ALWAYS keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and
dark areas invite accidents.
2. DO NOT operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres,
such as in the
presence
of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
3. ALWAYS keep bystanders,
children, and visitors away while operating a
power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
ELECTRICAL
SAFETY
1. Double insulated tools are equipped with 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 a polarized
outlet.
Do not change the plug in any way.
2. Double insulation [] eliminates the need for the three wire grounded
power
cord and grounded power supply system. Applicable
only to Class II
(double insulated) tools.
3. Before plugging in the tool, BE SURE that the outlet voltage supplied is
within the voltage marked on the tool's data plate. DO NOT use "AC only"
rated tools with a DC power supply.
4. ALWAYS avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces,
such as pipes,
radiators,
ranges
and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is grounded.
5. If operating the power tool in damp locations
is unavoidable,
ALWAYS use a Ground
Fault Circuit
Interrupter
to supply power
to
your tool. ALWAYS wear electrician's
rubber
gloves and footwear
in damp conditions.
6. DO NOT expose power
tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering
a power tool wilt increase the risk of electric shock.
7. DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to carry the tools or pull
the plug from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or
moving
parts. Replace damaged
cords immediately.
Damaged cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
