Operator Safety: Required Reading
IMPORTANT! Safety is the single most important consideration in the operation of this equipment.
The following instructions must be followed at all times.
There are certain applications for which this tool was designed. We strongly recommend that this tool
not be modified and/or used for any other application other than that for which it was designed. If you
have any questions about its application, do not use the tool until you have contacted us and we have
advised you.
General Safety Warnings
KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the owner’s manual carefully. Learn the tool’s
applications, work capabilities, and its specific potential hazards.
ALWAYS GROUND ALL TOOLS.
If your tool is equipped with a three-pronged plug, you must plug it into a three-hole electric receptacle.
If you use an adapter to accommodate a two-pronged receptacle, you must attach the adapter plug to a
known ground. Never remove the third prong of the plug.
ALWAYS AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS.
Never use power tools in damp or wet locations. Keep your work area well lighted and clear of clutter.
ALWAYS REMOVE THE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES FROM TOOLS AFTER USE.
Form the habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from the tool before
turning it on.
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.
ALWAYS KEEP VISITORS AWAY FROM RUNNING MACHINES.
All visitors should be kept a safe distance from the work area.
ALWAYS MAKE THE WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF.
Childproof with padlocks, master switches, or by removing starter keys.
NEVER OPERATE A TOOL WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS,
MEDICATION, OR ALCOHOL.
ALWAYS WEAR PROPER APPAREL.
Never wear loose clothing or jewelry that might get caught in moving parts. Rubber-soled footwear is
recommended for the best footing.
ALWAYS USE SAFETY GLASSES AND WEAR HEARING PROTECTION.
Also use a face or dust mask if the cutting operation is dusty.
NEVER OVERREACH.
Keep your proper footing and balance at all times.
NEVER STAND ON TOOLS.
Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is accidentally contacted.
2
ALWAYS DISCONNECT TOOLS.
Disconnect tools before servicing and when changing accessories such as blades, bits, and cutters.
ALWAYS AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING.
Make sure switch is in “OFF” position before plugging in cord.
NEVER LEAVE TOOLS RUNNING UNATTENDED.
ALWAYS CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS.
Before initial or continual use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be checked to
assure that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its
operation. A guard or other damaged parts should immediately be properly repaired or replaced.

Dust Hazards and Safety
Grounding the Duct Work
Dust particles moving through flexible or rigid plastic duct work can cause static electricity build-up. The duct
work must be properly grounded to ensure that static discharge does not ignite fine dust particles causing an
explosion or fire.
To properly ground plastic duct work simply run a small gauge bare copper wire through the ducting and have it
emerge from the hose at the dust collector and at each dust producing machine. The bare copper wire should
be bonded to the metal shell of each machine by means of a metal screw. The screw must be threaded into the
metal shell to ensure a good connection.
The grounding of metal duct work is similar, the only difference is that there is no need to run the bare
copper wire inside the ducting. It can be wrapped along the out side of the ducting and should be bonded to
each machine as described above.
Emptying and Cleaning the Dust Collector
Caution: Make sure that the dust collector is unplugged before cleaning or servicing.
Always wear a dust mask or respirator while emptying the collector bags or cleaning the dust collector. Please
refer to the California Propostion 65 warning on page 3 of this manual regarding hazards from exposure to
wood dust. For more detailed information visit www.rikontools.com or www.oehha.ca.gov.

Electrical Requirements
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.
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 a risk 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.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded.
Use only three wire extension cords that have three-prong grounding plugs and three-pole
receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.*
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks the one illustrated in Figure
A below. The tool has a grounding plug that looks like the grounding plug as illustrated in Figure A
below. A temporary adapter, which locks like the adapter as illustrated in Figure B below, may be
used to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle, as shown in Figure B if a properly grounded outlet
is not available.** The temporary adapter should only be used until a properly grounded outlet can
be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear or tab, extending from the adapter,
must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.
* Canadian electrical codes require extension cords to be certified SJT type or better.
** Use of an adapter in Canada is not acceptable.
