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

INSTRUCTIONS
Work Area
Personal Safety
Keep your work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered benches and dark areas invite
accidents.
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.
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.
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.
Keep by-standers, children, and visitors away
while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
Electrical Safety
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Don't expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
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 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.
Do not use tool ff 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.
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.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
-2-
in the hands of untrained users.
Service
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.
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.
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.
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
electdc shock or injury. Certain cleaning agents
such as gasoline, carbon tetrachloride, ammonia,
etc. may damage plastic parts.
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.
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. i
during start-up. The reaction torque of the
motor can cause the tool to twist.
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.
Always use the tool with the depth guide
securely attached and positioned flat
against material being cut. The guide
securely positioned on the material improves
the stability and control of your tool.
Never lay workplece on top of hard
surfaces, like concrete, stone, etc...
Protruding cutting bit may cause tool to jump.
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.
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
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.
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.
Never touch the bit during or immediately
after the use. After use the bit is too hot to be
touched by bare hands.
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 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.
Do not use the tool for drilling purposes.
This tool is not intended to be used with drill
bits.
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
Never use bits that have a cutting diameter
greater than the opening in the base.
