POWER TOOL GENERAL SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Read all safety warnings and
instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and
instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/
or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers
to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Work area safety]
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gasses or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or
fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while
operating power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
2) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Electrical Safety]
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use
any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded)
power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord
for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power
tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled
cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces
the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of
an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Personal Safety].
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a power
tool. Do not use a power tool while you are
tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication.
A moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as dust masks, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions
will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and or battery
pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying
power tools with your finger on the switch or
energising the power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench
before turning the power tool on. A wrench
or key left attached to a rotating part of a power
tool may result in personal injury .
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery
or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection
of dust extraction and collection facilities,
ensure that these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Power tool use and care].
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the
correct power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better and
safer at a rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on or off. Any power tool
www.evolutionsteel.com
7
that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the power tool from the
power source and/or battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing power tools.
Such preventative safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these Instructions
to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for
misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of moving parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the power
tool repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and
tool bits etc. in accordance with these
instructions, taking into account the working
conditions and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
5) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Service]
a) Have your power tool serviced by a
qualified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that the
safety of the power tool is maintained.

SETTING UP
WARNING: Before using the machine ensure that you have
read the sections on the intended and prohibited of use of
this machine.
This machine should only be used for hole boring/drilling whilst
attached to the work piece by the electro-magnetic base.
WARNING: This machine is intended for use at any angle,
but only if the electro-magnet is in full working order and has
sufficient hold on the work piece material.
The safety strap or chain should be attached in case of power
failure or machine malfunction.
The safety strap or chain should NOT be used as an alternative to
the magnet for clamping purposes.
Always ensure the strap or chain is correctly fitted and the machine is
secureBEFOREstartingthemachine.
COOLANT / LUBRICANT FLOW.
Note: It is recommended that a Soluble Oil is used as other
coolants/lubricants may have a high viscosity and may not flow
easily to the cutter.
EnsurethattheCoolant/Lubricationbottleisfilledwithsuitable
Coolant/LubricationliquidandthattheON/OFFtapisintheON

OPERATION EVO 42
Note: This machine is fitted with the latest Anti Stall Technology
(AST).
If the cutting forces result in the motor stalling, the electronics will
switch off the motor, preventing burnout. The magnet will remain
energised holding the machine safely in position.
To reset after AST activation:
• SetthemotorswitchtotheOFF position.
• Backoffthecutterfromthematerial.
• Wait 3-5 seconds before restarting by switching the motor
switch to the ON position.
Fig. 9
Note: If after activation of the AST system or at any other time during
operation the machine fails to restart, or there is no magnetic adhesion
check the 240V/10A or 120V/16A (5x20mm) Surge Fuse. (Fig. 8) If it
has blown, it must be replaced with an identical type.
MAKING A CUT
WARNING: Ensure that the secondary slide is locked. The
locking lever has a Left Hand thread and is located on the
lower Left Hand side of the gearbox housing. (Fig. 9)
This must be fully tightened and will prevent any lateral movement
of the cutting head during the cutting operation.
WARNING: On completion of the cut the pilot bin will eject
the material slug. This slug will be very hot with sharp
edges. Use protective gloves when handling the slug.
If the slug fails to be ejected from the cutter this could be caused
by the slug becoming twisted inside the cutter. To release the slug
lower the cutter onto a flat area of the work piece, this will square
up the slug and allow it to be ejected.
AUXILIARY 13mm 3 JAW CHUCK. (UK Market only)
This machine is supplied with an auxiliary 3 jaw chuck to enable
the use of standard parallel shank twist drill bits.

Fig. 10
Fig. 11
Note: When fitted, the 3 jaw chuck (and any twist drill fitted
into it) are considerably longer than any of the annular cutters
usually fitted into this machine. To accommodate this greater
overall length the secondary slide facility of the machine must be
employed.
The locking lever for the secondary slide has a left hand thread and
is found on the lower Left Hand side of the gearbox housing. (Fig.
9) Loosen this lever to adjust the height (length) of the machine
(max 670mm) to suit the drilling application.
Once adjustment has been satisfactorily completed, ensure that
the secondary slide is securely tightened using the locking lever.
To fit the chuck:
• Screwthe3jawauxiliarychuckintothethreadedboreofthe
