1. ALWAYS use clamps or other practical ways to secure and support the
workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body
is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
2. DO NOT force the tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool

adjustments, changing accessories or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
5. STORE idle tools out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
6. 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.
7. Keep sandpaper clean, remove excess build-up of dust and debris. Replace
sandpaper when worn, this will provide better sanding results.
8. Punch holes in sandpaper with template included. Keep holes in sandpaper, cushion
and platen clear of dust and debris so the dust collection system works properly.
9. CHECK for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have the
tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
10. USE ONLY accessories that are recommended for this tool. Accessories that
may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.
Empty dust bag before storage to help prevent possible fire
hazard, especially when resin coating or linseed oil finishes have been sanded.

the terminals of plug when installing or removing
the plug from the outlet.
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.
