Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged, have them
repaired by an authorized service facility.
Green (or green and yellow) conductor in cord is the
grounding wire. If repair or replacement of the electric cord
or plug is necessary, do not connect the green (or green
and yellow) wire to a live terminal.
Where a 2-prong wall receptacle is encountered, it must be
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong receptacle
installed in accordance with National Electric Code and
local codes and ordinances.
WARNING:
This work should be performed by a qualified
electrician.
A temporary 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter (see
Figure 41) is available for connecting plugs to a two pole out-
let if it is properly grounded.

Do not use a 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter unless
permitted by local and national codes and ordinances.
(A 3-prong to 2-prong grounding adapter is not permitted
in Canada.) Where permitted, the rigid green tab or termi-
nal on the side of the adapter must be securely connected
to a permanent electrical ground such as a properly
grounded water pipe, a properly grounded outlet box or a
properly grounded wire system.
Many cover plate screws, water pipes and outlet boxes are
not properly grounded. To ensure proper ground, grounding
means must be tested by a qualified electrician.
EXTENSION
CORDS
The use of any extension cord will cause some drop in
voltage and loss of power.
°
Wires of the extension cord must be of sufficient size to
carry the current and maintain adequate voltage.
Use the table to determine the minimum wire size (A.W.G.)
extension cord.
Use only 3-wire extension cords having 3-prong grounding
type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which accept the tool plug.
°
tf the extension cord is worn, cut, or damaged in any way,
replace it immediately.
