Power Tool Safety Rules

! WARNING Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Work Area

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 by-standers,children, and visitors away while operating a power tool.

Distractions can cause you to lose control.

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 extension cord marked "W-A"

or "W." These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock. Refer to “Recommended sizes of Extension Cords” in the Accessory section of this manual.

Electrical Safety

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 adaptor 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 resistance path to carry electricity away from the user. Improper grounding can shock, burn or electrocute. Grounded tools are equipped with three

conductor cord and three prong type plugs.

Before plugging in the tool be certain the outlet voltage supplied is within the voltage marked on the nameplate. Do not use ìAC onlyî rated tools with a DC power supply.

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. If operating the power tool in damp locations is unavoidable, a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter must be used to supply the power to your tool. Electrician’s rubber gloves and footwear will further enhance your personal safety.

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

Personal Safety

Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common 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.

Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry,

or long hair can be caught in moving parts. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease.

Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is ìOFFî before plugging in. Carrying tools

with your finger on the switch or plugging in tools that have the switch “ON” invites accidents.

Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool ìONî. A wrench or

a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.

Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing

and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.

Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety

shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.

Tool Use and Care

Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand

or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.

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.Do not use tool if switch does not turn it ìONî or ìOFFî. Any tool

that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool.

Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.

Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools are

dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly

maintained tools, with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control. Any alteration or modification is a misuse and may result in a dangerous condition.

Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the tools operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are

caused by poorly maintained tools. Develop a periodic maintenance schedule for your tool.

Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may be

suitable for one tool, may become hazardous when used on another tool.

Service

Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or

maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury. For example: internal wires may be misplaced or pinched, safety guard return springs may be improperly mounted.

When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance section of this manual.

Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of electric shock or injury. Certain cleaning agents such as gasoline, carbon tetrachloride, ammonia, etc. may damage plastic parts.

Safety Rules for Drivers

Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tools may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a “live” wire

will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator. Do not drill, fasten or break into existing walls or other blind areas where electrical wiring may exist. If this situation is unavoidable, disconnect all fuses or circuit breakers feeding this worksite.

Always wear safety goggles or eye protection when using this tool.

Secure the material being fastened. Never hold it in your hand or across legs.

Unstable support can cause the drill bit to bind causing loss of control and injury.

Never leave the trigger locked "ON". Before plugging the tool in, check that the

trigger lock is "OFF". Accidental start-ups could cause injury.

Position the cord clear of rotating driver. Do not wrap the cord around your arm or wrist. If you lose control and have the cord

wrapped around your arm or wrist it may entrap you and cause injury.

Be aware of the location and setting of the switch "Lock-ON"button.If the switch

is locked "ON" during the use, be ready for emergency situations to switch it "OFF", by first pulling the trigger then immediately releasing it without pressing the "Lock-ON"button.

Be prepared for a strong reaction torque when "seating" or removing a screw. The

driver motor housing will tend to twist in the opposite direction when "seating" or removing a screw.

Some dust created by ! WARNING 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-based paints,
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• Arsenic and chromium from chemicallytreated lumber.
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.

BM 3609929656 10/03 10/17/03 12:13 PM

Do not use dull or damaged bits and accessories.

Check to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from the driver before switching the tool "ON". Keys or

wrenches can fly away at high velocity striking you or a bystander.

Do not run the tool while carrying it at your side. A spinning drill bit could become entangled with clothing and injury may result.

Operating Instructions

VARIABLE SPEED CONTROLLED

TRIGGER SWITCH

Your tool is equipped with a variable speed trigger switch. The tool can be turned "ON" or "OFF" by squeezing or releasing the trigger. The speed can be adjusted from the minimum to maximum nameplate RPM by the pressure you apply to the trigger. Apply more pressure to increase the speed and release pressure to decrease speed.

"LOCK-ON"BUTTON

The "Lock-ON"button, located near the trigger allows for continuous operation at maximum RPM without holding the trigger.

TO LOCK TRIGGER "ON": squeeze trigger, depress button and release trigger.

TO UNLOCK THE TRIGGER: squeeze trigger and release it without depressing the "LockON" button.

If the “Lock-ON”button is continuously being de-

pressed, the trigger can not be released.

REVERSING SWITCH LEVER

The reversing switch lever is located above the trigger switch and is used to reverse rotation of the bit.

To use driver in "Forward" rotation, move lever to left side of tool. To "Reverse" the rotation of the bit move the lever to the right side of the tool. The center position of the lever is the "Lock-OFF"position.

! CAUTION Do not change direction of rotation until the tool comes

to a complete stop. Shifting during rotation of the chuck can cause damage to the tool.

BELT CLIP

Your tool is equipped with a belt clip that allows you to conveniently attach your driver to your belt. This feature will allow you to have both hands free when climbing a ladder or moving to another work area.

Tool Tips

1.Support the tool so that steady, even pressure is applied to the screwdriving bit. Operate the trigger switch by depressing with one or two fingers.

2.Lock the tool on for continuous operation. The bit will not rotate until the clutch is engaged.

3.Place a drywall screw on the bit. The magnetic bit holder will hold any steel drywall screw without any additional assistance.

4.Press the screw point against the drywall with steady even pressure. At this point, the clutch will engage, driving the screw to the pre-setdepth. Once the screw bottoms out, a ratcheting sound will be heard for a second.

5.When properly set, the screw head should pull into the drywall paper without cracking or tearing the paper, then release slightly below flush with the drywall board. In this manner, minimum work is left when spackling screw heads and taping the seams.

6.If it becomes necessary to remove the screw, remove the snap off nose piece, reverse the direction of rotation (when the motor is in the "OFF" position.) Place the bit tip into the screw, switch tool "ON" and apply pressure to engage the clutch. Replace nose piece by pushing and slightly twisting to seat into the depth gauge. Set lever back to forward while the trigger switch is in the “OFF” position.

DEPTH CONTROL

The depth control should be adjusted so that the drywall screw is set slightly below the drywall surface.

DEPTH ADJUSTMENT

Your driver will continue to drive as long as enough pressure is applied to the bit to keep the clutch engaged. Models 1420VSR, 1420VSRL, 1421VSR, and 1422VSRQ are

-7-

equipped with a quiet clutch that eliminates ratcheting noise and prolongs clutch life.

The nose piece, upon contacting the work, prevents further pressure on the bit. Driving then stops regardless of pressure continued by the operator.

1. Pull firmly on the locking ring, moving it forward and away from the spline section of

BM 3609929656 10/03 10/17/03 12:13 PM Page 8

the clutch housing. Then turn it until the nose piece reaches the predetermined position.

2. Each 1/2 turn of the locking ring equals 1/32 inch change in depth. Once the desired depth setting is obtained, push the locking ring back toward the gear housing and turn slightly to match the splines, then push in firmly to lock it into place.

Reverse the process to the point of installing nose piece. Then WITH YOUR FINGERS, install nose piece by pushing inward. Twist if necessary to seat properly and lock in place.

Maintenance

Service

Preventive maintenance performed by unauthorized personnel may result in misplacing

of internal wires and components which could cause serious hazard. We

recommend that all tool service be performed by a Bosch Factory Service Center or Authorized Bosch Service Station.

TOOL LUBRICATION

Your Bosch tool has been properly lubricated and is ready to use. It is recommended that tools with gears be regreased with a special gear lubricant at every brush change.

CARBON BRUSHES

The brushes and commutator in your tool have been engineered for many hours of dependable service. To maintain peak efficiency of the motor, we recommend every two to six months the brushes be examined. Only genuine Bosch replacement brushes specially designed for your tool should be used.

BEARINGS

After about 300-400hours of operation, or at every second brush change, the bearings

should be replaced at Bosch Factory Service Center or Authorized Bosch Service Station. Bearings which become noisy (due to heavy load or very abrasive material cutting) should be replaced at once to avoid overheating or motor failure.

Cleaning

To avoid accidents always disconnect the tool from the power supply before cleaning or

performing any maintenance. The tool may

be cleaned most effectively with compressed dry air. Always wear safety goggles when cleaning tools with compressed air.

Ventilation openings and switch levers must be kept clean and free of foreign matter. Do not attempt to clean by inserting pointed objects through openings.

Certain cleaning agents ! CAUTION and solvents damage

plastic parts. Some of these are: gasoline, carbon tetrachloride, chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia and household detergents that contain ammonia.

Accessories

If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with adequate size conductors that is capable

of carrying the current necessary for your tool must be used. This will prevent

excessive voltage drop, loss of power or overheating. Grounded tools must use 3- wire extension cords that have 3-prongplugs and receptacles.

NOTE: The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

Règles de Sécurité Générales

! AVERTISSEMENT

Vous devez lire et comprendre toutes les instructions. Le non-respect, même partiel, des instructions ci-après entraîne un risque de choc életrique, d'incendie

et/ou de blessures graves.

CONSERVEZ CES INSTRUCTIONS

Aire de travail

Veillez à ce que l'aire de travail soit propre et bien éclairée. Le désordre et le manque de lumière favorisent les accidents.

N'utilisez pas d'outils électriques dans une atmosphère explosive, par exemple enprésence de liquides, de gaz ou de poussières inflammables. Les outils électriques créent des étincelles qui pourraient enflammer les poussières ou les vapeurs.

Tenez à distance les curieux, les enfants et les visiteurs pendant que vous travaillez avec un outil électrique. Ils pourraient vous distraire et vous faire faire une fausse manoeuvre.

Sécurité électrique

Les outils avec mise à la terre doivent être branchés sur une prise installée correctement et reliée à la terre conformément à toutes les normes et décrets. N’enlevez jamais la fiche de terre et ne modifiez jamais la prise. N’utilisez jamais d’adaptateur de prise. Si vous n’êtes pas sûr que votre prise est correctement reliée à la terre, consultez un électricien. Si l’outil présente une avarie électrique ou tombe en panne, le circuit de terre sert de chemin à faible résistance pour conduire le courant et l’empêcher de passer à travers l’utilisateur. Un outil incorrectement relié à la terre risque de causer un choc électrique, des brûlures ou une électrocution. Les outils avec mise à la terre sont munis d’un cordon à trois fils et d’une prise à trois fiches. Avant de brancher l'outil, assurez-vous que la tension de la prise correspond, à celle indiquée sur la plaque signalétique. N'utilisez pas d'outils prévus pour courant alternatif seulement avec une source de courant continu.

Évitez tout contact corporel avec des surfaces mises à la terre (tuyauterie, radiateurs, cuisinières, réfrigérateurs, etc.). Le risque de choc électrique est plus grand si votre corps est encontact avec la terre.Si l'utilisation de l'outil électrique dans un endroit humide est inévitable, un disjoncteur de fuite à la terre doit être utilisé pour alimenter votre outil. Des chaussures et des gants en caoutchouc d'électricien contribueront à accroître davantage votre sécurité personnelle.

N'exposez pas les outils électriques à la pluie ou à l'eau. La présence d'eau dans un outil électrique augmente le risque de choc électrique.

Ne maltraitez pas le cordon. Ne transportez pas l'outil par son cordon et ne débranchez pas la fiche en tirant sur le cordon. N'exposez pas le cordon à la chaleur, à des huiles, à des arêtes vives ou à des pièces en

mouvement. Remplacez immédiatement un cordon endommagé. Un cordon endommagé augmente le risque de choc électrique.

Lorsque vous utilisez un outil électrique à l'extérieur, employez un prolongateur pour l'extérieur marqué « W-A» ou « W ».Ces cordons sont faits pour être utilisés à l'extérieur et réduisent le risque de choc électrique. Reportez-vous aux « Dimensions recommandées des cordons de rallonge » dans la section Accessoires de ce manuel.

Sécurité des personnes

Restez alerte, concentrez-voussur votre travail et faites preuve de jugement. N'utilisez pas un outil électrique si vous êtes fatigué ou sous l'influence de drogues, d'alcool ou de médicaments.Un instant d'inattention suffit pour entraîner des blessures graves.

Habillez-vousconvenablement. Ne portez ni vêtements flottants ni bijoux. Confinez les cheveux longs. N'approchez jamais les cheveux, les vêtements ou les gants des pièces en mouvement.

Des vêtements flottants, des bijoux ou des cheveux longs risquent d'être happés par des pièces en mouvement. Gardez les poignées sèches, propres et exemptes d'huile et de graisse.

Méfiez-vousd'un démarrage accidentel. Avant de brancher l'outil,assurez-vousque son interrupteur est sur ARRÈT.Le fait de transporter un outil avec le doigt sur la détente ou de brancher un outil dont l'interrupteur est en position MARCHE peut mener tout droit à un accident.

Enlevez les clés de réglage ou de serrage avant de démarrer l'outil. Une clé laissée dans une pièce tournante de l'outil peut provoquer des blessures.

Ne vous penchez pas trop en avant. Maintenez un bon appui et restez en équilibre entout temps. Un bonne stabilité vous permet de mieux réagir à une situation inattendue.

Utilisez des accessoires de sécurité. Portez toujours des lunettes ou une visière. Selon les conditions, portez aussi un masque antipoussière, des bottes de sécurité antidérapantes, un casque protecteur et/ou un appareil antibruit.

Utilisation et entretien des outils

Immobilisez le matériau sur une surface stable au moyen de brides ou de toute autre façon adéquate. Le fait de tenir la pièce avec la main ou contre votre corps offre une stabilité insuffisante et peut amener un dérapage de l'outil.
