Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
Keep your work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered benches and dark areas invite
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
Keep by-standers, children, and visitors
away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
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. Double
eliminates the need for the
three wire grounded power cord and
grounded power supply system. Before
plugging in the tool, be certain the outlet
voltage supplied is within the voltage marked
on the nameplate. Do not use "AC only" rated
tools with a DC power supply.
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. If
operating the power tool in damp locations is
unavoidable, a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
must be used to supply the power to your tool.
Electrician's rubber gloves and footwear will
further enhance your personal safety.
Don't expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord
to carry the tools or pull the plug from an
outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving parts. Replace damaged
cords immediately. Damaged cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
Power Tool Safety Rules
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
When operating a power tool outside, use
an outdoor extension cord marked "W-A"
or "W." These cords are rated for outdoor use
and reduce the risk of electric shock. Refer to
"Recommended sizes of Extension Cords" in
the Accessory section of this manual.
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use tool while tired or
under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your
hair, clothing, and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is
"OFF" before plugging in. Carrying tools with
your finger on the switch or plugging in tools
that have the switch "ON" invites accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before
turning the tool "ON". A wrench or a key that
is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may
result in personal injury.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
hard hat, or hearing protection must be used
for appropriate conditions.
Use clamps or other practical way 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.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for
your application. The correct tool will do the
