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.

Electrical Safety

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. Before plugging in the tool, be certain the outlet voltage supplied is within the voltage marked on the nameplate. Do not use “AC only” 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 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.

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 “OFF” 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 “ON”. 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.

-2-

BM 2610925542 07-06.qxp7/24/06 12:06 PM Page 3

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 “ON” or “OFF”. 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 Routers

Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool 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. If cutting into existing walls or other blind areas where electrical wiring may exist is unavoidable, disconnect all fuses or circuit breakers feeding this worksite.

Always make sure the work surface is free from nails and other foreign objects.

Cutting into a nail can cause the bit and the tool to jump and damage the bit.

Never hold the workpiece in one hand and the tool in the other hand when in use. Never place hands near or below cutting surface. Clamping the material and guiding the tool with both hands is safer.

Never lay workpiece on top of hard surfaces, like concrete, stone, etc...

Protruding cutting bit may cause tool to jump.

Always wear safety goggles and dust mask. Use only in well ventilated area.

Using personal safety devices and working in safe environment reduces risk of injury.

After changing the bits or making any adjustments, make sure the collet nut and any other adjustment devices are securely tightened. Loose adjustment device can unexpectedly shift, causing loss of control, loose rotating components will be violently thrown.

Never start the tool when the bit is engaged in the material. The bit cutting edge may grab the material causing loss of control of the cutter.

Always hold the tool with two hands during start-up. The reaction torque of the motor can cause the tool to twist.

The direction of feeding the bit into the material is very important and it relates to the direction of bit rotation. When viewing the tool from the top, the bit rotates

-3-

BM 2610925542 07-06.qxp7/24/06 12:06 PM Page 4

clockwise. Feed direction of cutting must be counter-clockwise.NOTE: inside and outside cuts will require different feed direction, refer to section on feeding the router. Feeding the tool in the wrong direction, causes the cutting edge of the bit to climb out of the work and pull the tool in the direction of this feed.

Never use dull or damaged bits. Sharp bits must be handled with care. Damaged bits can snap during use. Dull bits require more force to push the tool, possibly causing the bit to break.

Never touch the bit during or immediately after the use. After use the bit is too hot to be touched by bare hands.

Never lay the tool down until the motor has come to a complete standstill. The spinning bit can grab the surface and pull the tool out of your control.

Never use bits that have a cutting diameter greater than the opening in the base.

! Some dust created byWARNING 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 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.

Safety Rules for Router Table

Read and understand the tool manual and these instructions for the use of this table with your router. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in serious personal injury.

Unplug tool before setting up in table, making adjustments or changing bits.

Accidental start-upof the tool can cause injury.

Fully assemble and tighten all the fasteners required for this table and mounting the router. Also remember to occasionally check the stand and make sure it is still tight. A loose stand is unstable and may shift in use and cause serious injury.

Before operating make sure the entire unit is placed on a solid, flat, level surface.

Serious injury could occur if tool is unstable and tips.

Never stand on the table or use as ladder or scaffolding. Serious injury could occur if the table is tipped or the cutting tool is accidentally contacted. Do not store materials on or near the table such that it is

necessary to stand on the table or its stand to reach them.

Never use dull or damaged bits. Sharp bits must be handled with care. Damaged bits can snap during use. Dull bits require more force to push the workpiece, possibly causing the bit to break.

Match the appropriate bit and its speed to your application. Do not use bits that have a cutting diameter that exceeds the capacity of the tool. Overloading the tool can lead to personal injury or tool failure.

Never start the tool when the bit is engaged in the material. The bit cutting edge may grab the material causing loss of control of the workpiece.

Router bits are intended for wood, wood products and plastic only. Be sure the workpiece does not contain nails, etc. before routing. Cutting a nail or the like will cause the carbides to be dislodged, fly toward the operator side, and possibly strike you or bystanders.

-4-

BM 2610925542 07-06.qxp7/24/06 12:06 PM Page 5

Feed the workpiece against the rotation of the bit. The bit rotates counter-clockwiseas viewed from the top of table.Feeding the work in the wrong direction will cause the workpiece to "climb" up on the bit and may lead to loss of control during operation.

Never place hands near the spinning bit. Use push sticks, vertical and horizontally mounted feather boards (spring sticks) and other jigs to hold down the workpiece and keep your hands away from the spinning bit. Router cuts are blind cuts but the bit still protrudes through the table and you must be aware of the position of your hands relative to the spinning bit.

We do not recommend cutting material that is warped, wobbly or otherwise unstable. If this situation is unavoidable always cut the material with the concave side against the table. Cutting the material with the concave side up or away from table may cause the warped or wobbly material to roll; causing you to lose control, kickback and serious personal injury may result.

Use the adjustable fence in straight cutting applications. When routing along

an entire edge of the work, the fence, fence faces, and adjustable outfeed fence support shims will help maintain stability.

When the table is used without the fence, piloted bits (or "bearing bits") must be used. Piloted bits are used when routing internal and external contours on a workpiece. The bearing of the piloted bit assists in maintaining control of the workpiece. Whenever possible, the starter pin should also be used.

After changing the bits or making any adjustments, make sure the collet nut and any other adjustment devices are securely tightened. Loose adjustment device can unexpectedly shift, causing loss of control, loose rotating components will be violently thrown.

Never touch the bit during or immediately after the use. Contact with a spinning bit will cause injury and after use the bit is too hot to be touched by bare hands.

Use only Bosch replacement parts. Any others may create a hazard.

Assembly

A wide assortment of router bits with different profiles is available separately. Use 1/2" shank whenever possible, and only use good quality bits.

! WARNING To prevent personal injury, always remove the plug from power source before removing or

installing bits or accessories.

INSTALLING A ROUTER BIT

Place router upside down or lay router on its side with the base resting on the bench. Another option is to remove the motor from the base before installing the bit.

1. Remove the chip shield (or flip up if plunge base is attached.

2. Hold the armature shaft in place with the shaft wrench (Fig. 4)

3. Next, use the collet wrench to loosen the collet chuck assembly in counterclockwise direction (viewed from under the router).

4. Insert the shank of the router bit into the collet chuck assembly as far as it will go, then back the shank out until the cutters are approximately 1/8" to 1/4" away from the collet nut face.

5. With the router bit inserted and the shaft wrench holding the armature shaft, use the collet wrench to firmly tighten the collet chuck assembly in a clockwise direction (viewed from under the router). To ensure proper gripping of the router bit and minimize run-out,the shank of the router bit must be inserted at least 5/8".

! WARNING When the templet guide has been removed from

base, do not use router bits greater than

FIG. 4

2" in diameter as they will not fit through the sub-base.

! WARNING Cutter diameter must be at least 1/4” smaller than

opening for the bit and cutter.

! CAUTION To prevent damage to tool, do not tighten collet

without a bit.

NOTE: The bit shank and chuck should be clean and free of dust, wood, residue and grease before assembling.

REMOVING THE ROUTER BIT

1.Use the shaft and collet chuck wrenches as described earlier, and turn the collet chuck assembly in a counter-clockwisedirection.

2.Once the collet chuck assembly is loosened continue to turn the collet chuck assembly until it pulls the collet free from its taper, and the router bit can be removed.

NOTE: The collet chuck isself-extracting;it is NOT necessary to strike the collet chuck to free the router bit.

COLLET CHUCK CARE

With the router bit removed, continue to turn the collet chuck counter-clockwiseuntil it is free of the shaft. To assure a firm grip, occasionally blow out the collet chuck with compressed air, and clean the taper in the armature assembly shaft with a tissue or fine brush. The collet chuck is made up of two component parts as illustrated (Fig. 5); check to see that the collet is properly seated in the collet chuck nut and lightly thread the collet chuck back onto the armature shaft. Replace worn or damaged collet chucks immediately.

1.Hold router in horizontal position, open base clamp lever, depress coarse adjustment lever, and pull motor upwards until it stops.

2.Turn motor counter-clockwise,and gently pull it free of base.

To remove motor from plunge base: (Fig. 7)

1.Hold router in horizontal position, open base clamp lever, and pull motor upwards until it stops.

2.Turn motor counter-clockwise,and gently pull it free of base.

INSTALLING MOTOR IN BASE

The motor can be installed with the switch positioned on the right or left of the base from the operator's side (and the cord facing the opposite side of the router). Install the motor so that the switch is in the location you find to be the most easily accessible from the handles. The switch should be easier to turn "OFF" than "ON" in case of an emergency.

To install motor in non-plungebase:

1.Release the base clamp lever.

2.Line up the arrow on the base with arrow on the motor. (Fig. 8)

•To position switch on the right side of the base, line up the base’s arrow with motor housing’s arrow that is below the cord.

•To position switch on the left, line up the base’s arrow with motor housing’s arrow that is below the switch.

3.While pressing the coarse adjustment lever, slide motor into base until resistance in felt. (The base’s guide pin is now engaged into slot on motor.)

4.Continue to press coarse adjustment lever, and turn the motor clockwise until it stops.

5.Push the motor into the base until it reaches the approximate desired depth.

6.Release the coarse adjustment lever and slide the motor forward or back as needed until the coarse adjustment system’s “catch” springs into the coarse adjustment detent notch.

7.Set final height position as described below in “Operating Instructions”.

To install motor in plunge base:

1. Release the base clamp lever.

2.Line up the arrow on the base with arrow on the motor. (Fig. 8)
