WARNING:

Empty dust bag before storage to help prevent possible fire
hazard, especially when resin coating or linseed oil finishes have been sanded.
NOTE: For more efficient operation, we recommend that you empty the dust bag when
it is no more than half full. This will allow the air to flow through the bag better. ALWAYS
empty and clean the dust bag thoroughly when you've finished sanding and before you
store the sander.

causing possible serious personal injury.
