GENERAL SAFETY RULES FOR POWER TOOLS
1. KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL
For your own safety, read the owner's
manual carefully.
Learn its application
and limitations
as well as the specific
hazards peculiar to this tool.
2. GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
A. All grounded,
cord-connected
tools:
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 tool is equipped
with an
electric cord having an equipment-grounding
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.
B. Grounded,
supply
cord-connected
circuit
tools
having a nominal
intended
for use on a
rating less than 150volts:
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet
that looks like the one illustrated
in Sketch A in Figure 1. The
tool has a grounding
plug that looks like the plug illustrated
in Sketch A in Figure 1. A temporary adapter, which looks like
the adapter illustrated
in Sketches B and C, may be used to
connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in Sketch
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, etc. extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
outlet box.
ground
such as a properly
grounded
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection
can result in a risk
covMeta[
of the equipment-grounding
conductor
of electric
shock. The conductor
with
insulation
having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding
conductor.
If
repair or replacement
of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grounding
conductor
to a live
terminal.

ADJUSTMENT
The fence can be adjusted to cut angles from O° to 45 °. Stop pins
allow automatic
setting to 0 °, 221/2=, 30 ° or 45 ° in either the inboard
or outboard direction.
O°
45 ° INBOARD
TO ADJUST: Loosen fence lock knobs and lift the stop pins out and
turn to lock out. Move the fence to the desired angle. If It is one of the
commonly used angles listed above, release the stop pins and they
will pop into place when the correct angle is reached. Tighten the
fence lock knobs to lock the fence in place. Fora less common angle

The Craftsman
Jointer/Planer
comes equipped with a cutter guard
stop assembly to improve safety and reduce risk of injury. Be sure to
read and understand
all instructions in the ASSEMBLY and BASIC
JOINTER/PLANER
OPERATION sections before operating this tool.
5. ON.OFF SWITCH
The operating positions of the "On-Off"
switch are located on the
front of your Jointer-Planer.
Push the switch up to turn your JointerPlaner "on" and down to turn your Jointer-Planer
"off". The switch
has a switch key which, when removed, allows the switch to be locked in the "off" position. To activate the locking feature push switch
to "off" position and pull switch key.
To turn Jointer-Planer "on" after it has been locked in the "off" position, the switch key must be replaced in the switch.

OPERATION
For your safety do not exceed a 1t16" deep cut on a planing operation
for work pieces wider than 1-112'". For work pieces less than 1.1/2",
a 118" cut can be taken at a slow feed rate.
For your own safety, ALWAYS use hold downlpush
blocks when
JOINTING wood that is NARROWER than 3 in. or when PLANING
WOOD THAT IS THINNER than 3 in.
This Jointer-Planer
is designed with a special cutter head and internal baffle that blows the sawdust and chips from the rear of the
machine. To keep this system operating
properly, the motor speed
should be maintained. A feed rate that is too fast will slow the motor
down resulting
in a poor cut and poor chip discharge.
The type of
wood, wood grain, and moisture content of the wood all affect an
acceptable
feed rate.
Do not plane, joint or bevel wood shorter than 12 in. Material this
short is more difficult
to control while being cut. Small pieces of
wood can tip over on the tables or into the cutterhead
and can be
kicked back toward you,
CAUTION:
MAKE
SURE ALL SIX BLADE
LOCKING
For best results, take light cuts. For average planing, jointing,
or
beveling,
a cut between
1/32 and 1/16 in. deep wil! produce
the
best results.

Hold the board firmly DOWN on both tables and AGAINST
...keep fingers close together.
the fence
Feed the board at a continuous
even rate of speed until the cut is
made along the entire length of the board. Any hesitation
or stopping could cause a "step" to be cut on the edge of the board which
would cause the board to ride up on the outfeed table resulting in a
"crooked"
edge on the board.
t,_j
ROTA_
t, j
Always feed WITH THE GRAIN whenever possible, if the nature of
the work piece is such that it must be fed AGAINST THE GRAIN,
take very light cuts and feed slowly.
ROTATION
Start with the left hand in the forward position. As the RIGHT hand
passes over the cutterhead,
remove the LEFT hand...CONTINUE
feeding while placing the LEFT hand behind the RIGHT. Continue
feeding in this manner "hand over hand," until the entire length of
the board is cut. Pressure should be applied over the cutterhead
and outfeed table.
DO NOT FEED TOO FAST. A slow steady rate of feed produces
a
smooth accurate
cut. Feeding too fast causes a "rippled"
cut...
makes it difficult
to guide the workpiece
accurately
and could be
hazardous.

WARNING:
NEVER PLACE THE HEEL OF YOUR HAND AT
THE END OF THE WORK PIECE WHEN FINISHING
A CUT.
THIS COULD RESULT IN YOUR HAND COMING IN CONTACT
WITH THE CUTTER CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY,

At the end of the cut, position
