SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS cont.
WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions in this manual
before using this planer. Failure to follow all instructions may result in electric shock,
fire and / or serious personal injury.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered workbenches and dark areas
invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. Keep bystanders, children and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
4. Make your workshop childproof with padlocks and master switches. Lock
tools away when not in use.
5. MAKE SURE the work area has ample lighting so you can see the work and that
there are no obstructions that will interfere with safe operation BEFORE using
your planer.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. KNOW your power tool. Read the operator’s manual carefully. Learn the planer’s
applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards related to this tool.
2. STAY ALERT, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a
power tool.
3. 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.
4. DRESS properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry. Pull back long hair. Keep your
hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothing, or long hair can be
caught in moving parts. Air vents often cover moving parts and should also be avoided.
5. AVOID accidental starting. Be sure switch is in “OFF” position before plugging in.
DO NOT carry tools with your finger on the switch. Carrying tools with your finger on the
switch or plugging in tools that have the switch in the “ON” position invites accidents.
6. REMOVE adjusting keys or blade wrenches before turning the tool “ON”. A wrench that
is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
7. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
8. ALWAYS SECURE YOUR WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work when practical.
It is safer than using your hand and frees both hands to operate tool.
9. USE SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
TOOL USE AND CARE SAFETY
! WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions before
operating this planer. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
1. ALWAYS use clamps or other practical ways 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.
2. DO NOT force the tool. Use the correct tool and blade for your application. The
correct tool and blade will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
3. DO NOT use the tool if switch does not turn it “On” or “Off”. Any tool that
cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
4. 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.
5. STORE idle tools out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
6. 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.
7. CHECK for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
8. USE ONLY accessories that are recommended for this tool. Accessories that
may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
! WARNING: Do not permit fingers to touch the terminals of plug when
installing or removing the plug from the outlet.
1. 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.
2. Double insulation
eliminates the need
for the three-wire grounded power cord and
grounded power supply system. Applicable
only to Class II (double-insulated) tools.
This planer is a double insulated tool.

SERVICE SAFETY
EXTENSION CORDS
Use a proper extension cord. ONLY use cords listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
Other extension cords can cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of power and
overheating of tool. For this tool an AWG (American Wire Gauge) size of a least 14-gauge
is recommended for an extension cord of 25- ft. or less in length. Use 12- gauge for an
extension cord of 50-ft. Extension cords 100-ft. or longer are not recommended.
Remember, a smaller wire gauge size has greater capacity than a larger number
(14-gauge wire has more capacity than 16-gauge wire; 12-gauge wire has more capacity
than 14-gauge). When in doubt use the smaller number. When operating a power tool
outdoors, use an outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or “W”. These cords are rated for
outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock.
1. If any part of this planer is missing or should break, bend, or fail in any way;
or should any electrical component fail to perform properly: SHUT OFF the
power switch and remove the planer’s plug from the power source and have the
missing, damaged or failed parts replaced BEFORE resuming operation.
2. Tool service must be performed only at a Sears Service Center. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
3. 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
electric shock or injury.
SAFETY RULES FOR PLANERS
!
! CAUTION: Keep the extension cord clear of the working area. Position the
cord so that it will not get caught on lumber, tools or other obstructions while
you are working with a power tool.
! WARNING: Check extension cords before each use. If damaged replace
immediately. Never use tool with a damaged cord since touching the damaged
area could cause electrical shock, resulting in serious injury.

DANGER
Keep hands away from cutting area and blade. Keep both
hands on the planer (rear handle and front handle). If both hands are holding
the planer, the blade cannot cut them.
1. ALWAYS use both hands when using the planer. Hold the front handle with your
left hand and the rear handle with your right hand.
2. Operate the planer with the chip chute exhaust turned so it points away from your
face and eyes.
3. To insure control, ALWAYS support your workpiece so the cut will be on your
right.
4. ALWAYS clamp the workpiece securely so it will not move when making the cut.
5. DO NOT use dull or damaged blades. Bent blades can break easily, or cause
kickback resulting in loss of control and serious injury.
6. ALWAYS hold the planer so the blades DO NOT come in contact with the
workpiece until you have squeezed the trigger switch and the planer has started.
