tool.
Installing or removing the bit
009748
CAUTION:
Install the bit securely. Always use only the
wrenches provided with the tool. A loose or
overtightened bit can be dangerous.
Do not tighten the collet nut without inserting a bit.
It can lead to breakage of the collet cone.
Insert the bit all the way into the collet cone and tighten
the collet nut securely with the two wrenches.
A 6 mm or 1/4" collet cone is also provided as standard
equipment besides the 8 mm or 3/8" collet cone that is
factory installed on the tool. Use the correct size collet
cone for the bit which you intend to use.
To remove the bit, follow the installation procedure in
reverse.

OPERATION

Set the tool base on the workpiece to be cut without the
bit making any contact. Then turn the tool on and wait
until the bit attains full speed. Lower the tool body and
move the tool forward over the workpiece surface,
keeping the tool base flush and advancing smoothly until
the cutting is complete.
When doing edge cutting, the workpiece surface should
be on the left side of the bit in the feed direction.

NOTE:
Moving the tool forward too fast may cause a poor
quality of cut, or damage to the bit or motor.
Moving the tool forward too slowly may burn and
mar the cut. The proper feed rate will depend on
the bit size, the kind of workpiece and depth of cut.
Before beginning the cut on the actual workpiece, it
is advisable to make a sample cut on a piece of
scrap lumber. This will show exactly how the cut
will look as well as enable you to check
dimensions.
When using the straight guide, be sure to install it
on the right side in the feed direction. This will help
to keep it flush with the side of the workpiece.
