POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should
be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the
machine to the power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of
the same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low
voltage will damage the machine.
DO NOT EXPOSE THE MACHINE TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP LOCATIONS.
MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your machine is wired for 120 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source,
make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
1. All grounded, cord-connected machines:
2. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less
than 150 volts:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the
machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug
illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like
the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect
this plug to a matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown
in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The
temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever
the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal
screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the
equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
t h e g ro u n d i n g i n s t r u c t i o n s a re n o t c o m p l e t e l y
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is
properly grounded.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and matching 3-conductor
receptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in
Fig. A.
IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE

MAINTENANCE
BRUSH INSPECTION AND REPLACEMENT
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM THE POWER SOURCE.
Brush life varies. It depends on the load on the motor. Check the brushes after the first 50 hours of use for a new
machine, or after a new set of brushes has been installed.
After the first check, examine them after about 10 hours of use until such time that replacement is necessary.
The brush holder covers (A) Fig. 47, are located on the motor housing opposite each other. Fig. 48 illustrates one
of the brushes (B) removed for inspection. When the carbon on either brush is worn to 3/16" in length or if either
spring or shunt wire is burned or damaged in any way, replace both brushes. If the brushes are found
serviceable after removing, reinstall them in the same position as removed.

KEEP MACHINE CLEAN
LUBRICATION
Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed
air. All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp
cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could
possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material.
Apply household floor paste wax to the machine table and
extension table or other work surface weekly.
PROTECTING CAST IRON FROM RUST
To clean and protect cast iron tables from rust, you will
need the following materials: 1 pushblock from a jointer,
1 sheet of medium Scotch-Brite™ Blending Hand Pad, 1
can of WD-40®, 1 can of degreaser, 1 can of TopCote®
Aerosol. Apply the WD-40 and polish the table surface
with the Scotch-Brite pad using the pushblock as a
holddown. Degrease the table, then apply the TopCote®
accordingly.
Wear ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses while
using compressed air.
FAILURE TO START
Should your machine fail to start, check to make sure the
prongs on the cord plug are making good contact in the
outlet. Also, check for blown fuses or open circuit breakers
in the line.
