Important Safety Instructions

WARNING: When using electric tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury, including the following:

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

Safety Warnings: Double Insulation

Double insulated tools are constructed throughout with two separate layers of electrical insulation or one double thickness of insulation between you and the tool’s electrical system. Tools built with this insulation system are not intended to be grounded. As a result, your tool is equipped with a two prong plug which permits you to use extension cords without concern for maintaining a ground connection.

NOTE: Double insulation does not take the place of normal safety precautions when operating this tool. The insulation system is for added protection against injury resulting from a possible electrical insulation failure within the tool.

REPLACEMENT PARTS: When servicing all tools, USE IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS. Repair or replace damaged cords.

Safety Instructions: Polarized Plugs

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has 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 into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

Safety Instructions For All Tools

KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in working order.

REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from spindle before turning tool on.

KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.

DON’T USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. Don’t use power tools in damp or wet locations, or expose them to rain. Keep work area well lighted.

KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept at a safe distance from work area.

MAKE WORKSHOP KID PROOF with padlocks, master switches, or by removing starter keys.

DON’T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and be safer at the rate for which it was designed.

USE RIGHT TOOL. Don’t force tool or attachment to do a job for which it was not designed.

WEAR PROPER APPAREL. No loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry which may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.

ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses, they are NOT safety glasses.

SECURE WORK. Use clamps or vise when you cannot secure the workpiece on the table and against the fence by hand or when your hand will be dangerously close to the blade (within 6”).

If you have any questions, call 1-800-54-HOW-TO.

395136-00,03,BT15006/22/04 9:05 AM Page 8

DON’T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for best and safest performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.

DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing; when changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters, and the like.

REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING.

Make sure switch is in OFF position before plugging in.

USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult the instruction manual for recommended accessories. The use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury to persons.

NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally contacted.

CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intendedfunction—checkfor alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on and off.

NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN POWER OFF. Don’t leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.

D O N O T O P E R AT E E L E C T R I C TO O L S N E A R F L A M M A B L E L I Q U I D S O R I N G A S E O U S O R EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES. Motors in these tools may spark and ignite fumes.

If you have any questions, call 1-800-54-HOW-TO

USE PROPER EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

Additional Safety Rules For Miter Saws

CAUTION: FAILURE TO HEED THESE WARNINGS MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY AND SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE SAW.

DO-Protectelectric supply line with at least a 15 amperetime-delayfuse or a circuit breaker.

DO-Makecertain the blade rotates in the correct direction and that the teeth at the bottom of the blade are pointing to the rear of the miter saw.

DO-Besure all clamp handles are tight before starting any operation.

8

395136-00,03,BT15006/22/04 9:05 AM Page 9

DO-Besure all blade and clamp washers are clean and recessed sides of collars are against blade. Tighten arbor screw securely.

DO-Keepsaw blade sharp.

DO-Keepmotor air slots free of chips and dirt.

DO-Useblade guards at all times.

DO-Keephands out of path of saw blade.

DO-Shutoff power, disconnect cord from power source and wait for saw blade to stop before servicing or adjusting tool.

DO-Supportlong work with an outboard tool rest.

DO-Useonly 10 inch diameter blades.

DON’T-Attemptto operate on anything but designated voltage.

DON’T-Operateunless all clamp handles are tight.

DON’T-Useblades larger or smaller than those which are recommended.

DON’T-Wedgeanything against fan to hold motor shaft.

DON’T-Forcecutting action. (Stalling or partial stalling of motor can cause major damage. Allow motor to reach full speed before cutting.)

DON’T-Cutferrous metals (Those with any iron or steel content) or any masonry.

DON’T-Useabrasive wheels. The excessive heat and abrasive particles generated by them will damage saw.

DON’T-Allowanyone to stand behind saw.

DON’T-Applylubricants to the blade when it’s running.

DON’T-Placeeither hand in the blade area when the saw is connected to the power source.

DON’T-Useblades rated less than 5500 R.P.M.

DON’T-Attemptto cut small pieces (hand within 6" of blade) without clamping.

DON’T-Operatesaw without guards in place.

DON’T-Performany operation freehand.

DON’T-Reacharound or behind saw blade.

DON’T-Placehands closer than 6 inches from the saw blade.

DON’T-Reachunderneath the saw unless it is turned off and unplugged. The saw blade is exposed on the underside of the saw.

DON’T-Moveeither hand from saw or workpiece or raise arm until blade has stopped.

DON’T-Usewithout Kerf Plate or when kerf slot is wider than 3/8".

WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:

lead from lead-basedpaints,

crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and

arsenic and chromium from chemically-treatedlumber. (CCA)

Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas with soap and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
