General Safety Instructions
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches
and dark areas invite accidents.
• 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.
• Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operat-
ing a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
• Grounded tools must be plugged into an outlet properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all codes and
ordinances. Never remove the grounding prong or modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs. Check
with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether
the outlet is properly grounded. If the tools should electrically
malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resist-
ance path to carry electricity away from the user. Applicable
only to Class I (grounded) tools.
• 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. Applicable only to Class II (double
• 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 heat,
oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.
• When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor exten-
sion cord marked “W-A” or “W.” These cords are rated for
outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock.

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 personal injury.
