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.

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 or to fine tune to an angle less than the 5 ° divisions on the fence segment. Pull and lock out the stop pins and use the 0 ° to 5 ° scale on the tilt indicator to set the exact angle desired. 1.

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. SWITCH WARNING: BE SURE SWITCH IS IN THE "OFF" POSITION BEFORE PLUGGING JOINTER-PLANER INTO POWER SOURCE FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL STARTING CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY. _swiT'c H KEY BASIC JOINTER--PLANER 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. SCREWS ARE TIGHTENED SECURELY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TURN THE MACHINE "ON" OR ATTEMPTING ANY OPERATION. SETTING ,_ THE GUARD Rotate the guard stop and knob clockwise cutter guard and lock the knob.

During Operation 1. With the JointerlPlaner switch unplugged place a workpiece infeed table. 2. Loosen the guard stop knob and pass the workpiece between the fence and the cutter guard and through the cutter area until the cutter guard is rotated as far as this workpiece will require. FEEDING THE WORK in the off position and the cord of the size to be used on the PIECE 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. 10 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 your hand on TOP NEAR THE END of the work piece and continue feeding the work piece until the cutter guard has returned to its closed position, RIGHT / USING HOLD DOWN/PUSH ALWAYS use the hold downlpush blocks that is NARROWER than 3 in. or PLANING than 3 in. HAND'OVER BLOCKS when wood HAND JOINTING wood that is THINNER Grasp the hold down/push blocks firmly with the fingers close together and wrapped around the handle. Position them flat on top of workpiece, and push the workpiece down against the table to provide a quality cut and minimize the chance of a kickback. Hold down pressure must be sufficient to prevent hold down/push block from sliding or slipping on the surface of the workpiece when advancing work piece over cutter head. Use a hand-over-hand motion of the hold downlpush blocks careful to maintain control of the workpiece at all times. being This means that once the work piece has passed the cutter head onto outfeed table, one hold down/push block must always maintain contact with the work piece with outfeed table. When planing wood 3/4 in. thick and NARROWER than downlpush block, tilt the hold down/push block so that the top of the cutter guard while feeding. the hold it clears Never plane wood that is thinner than 112 in...because it is apt to split or shatter and thus has a greater tendency to kickback. ,_ SLIP WHILE FEEDING, CLEAN RUBBER SURFACE IMMEDICAUTION: IF THE HOLD DOWN/PUSH BLOCKS TEND TO ATELY WITH SANDPAPER.
