Tool Use and Care
12. Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Hold-
ing the work by hand or against your body is unsta-
ble and may lead to loss of control.
13. Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your
application. The correct tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
14. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or
off. A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
15. Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before mak-
ing any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
16. Store idle tools out of reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
17. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects like: paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together
may cause sparks, burns, or a fire.
18. Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools
sharp and clean. Properly maintained tools with
sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are
easier to control.
19. 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 acci-
dents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
20. Use only accessories that are recommended by
the manufacturer for your model. Accessories
that may be suitable for one tool may create a risk of
injury when used on another tool.
21. Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance per-
formed by unqualified personnel may result in a risk
22. When servicing a tool, use only identical
replacement parts. Follow instructions in the
Maintenance section of this manual. Use of unau-
thorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance
instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.
