GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING! Read and understand all
instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock,
fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• Keep your work area clean and well lit.

• 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. Use in well
ventilated areas only.
• Keep bystanders, 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 Insulation
eliminates the need for the three wire
grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
• 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.
• 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

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.

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.
