SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING! Read all instructions.Failure to follow all instructions listed below
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Work area.
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite
accidents.
b. 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.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. 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 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. Use a Residual Circuit Breaker on all 230V Power tools. This can help
minimise the risk of an electrical shock if an earth fault or short circuits occurs.
g. If using a power cable extension ensure that the cable is fully unwound
and that its length is less than 30m. Lengths over 30 m will effect the tools
performance as a result of voltage drop.
3. 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 safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment
such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position
before plugging in. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or
plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool
4.
5.
on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the 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 these are connected and properly used. Use
of these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.
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 the rate for
which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must
be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such
preventive 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 parts and any other condition that may affect the
power tools 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 and in the manner intended for the particular type of
power tool, taking into account the working conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
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.

1.FITTING THE VACUUM ADAPTOR (fig2)
For the sake of your health and working
environment, always use a vacuum adaptor.
Use the three screws to fasten the adaptor socket
securely to the routing base.The adaptor socket is
suitable for vacuum clearer with a suction hose of
36mm diameter.
Fig 4
Fig 5
3. ADJUSTING DEPTH OF CUT
The depth of cut is the distance between the triple
depth stop and the length stop bar.
Router bits vary in depth, the triple depth stop
allows for this with its three positions. Use one of
the two following methods:
Method 1: Using a piece of wood method
Fit the router bit, loosen the depth stop bar fixing
screw, Lossen the plunge lock lever (Fig6) and
plunge the router down until it comes into contact
with the workpiece.
Lock the router into this position by pushing down
the plunge lock lever.
Lift up the depth stop bar and insert a piece of
wood the same thickness as the depth of cut
between the stop bar and triple stop bar. See Fig7
and Fig8.Tighten the depth stop bar fixing screw
and release the plunge lock lever to return the
router back to its original position. The depth of
cut is now set, see “Starting the router” section
for final operation.
Before proceeding carry out test cut on waste
timber.
Method 2: Using the scale method
Fit the router bit, loosen the depth stop bar fixing
screw and release the plunge lock lever.
Lower the router down until it contacts the
workpiece, lock into this position with the plunge
lock lever. The scale on the depth bar now shows
the starting position. Note the starting position
will vary depending on the bit used.
Next add the required depth of the cut to the
starting position, i.e.: if the scale shows 20mm
and you require a cut of 10mm, then the correct
adjustment on the scale is 20+10=30mm, if the
scale shows 38mm and the required cut is 6mm
in depth, the adjustment on the scale will be
38+6=44mm.
Now move the depth stop bar to the calculated
number, and lock bar with the fixing screw.
Release the clamp lock lever, the router will return
to its original position.
Start Router as described in “Starting the router”
section below.
Before proceeding carry out test cut on waste
timber.
4. MAKING FINE ADJUSTMENT TO CUT
DEPTH
To make fine adjustments, turn the triple depth
stop by loosening the centre screw, lift the stop
and turn to a suitable length screw, release stop
and tighten centre screw.(Fig9)
Turn the appropriate screw with a screwdriver to
obtain fine adjustment (Fig10).
Note all three screws can be adjusted, enabling
you to make different depth cuts on the same
workpiece.
If you wish to make a deep cut it is best to do this
in 2 or 3 stages. Do not cut more than 10mm depth
at a time i.e. If cutting 30mm make 3 separate
10mm cuts. The triple depth stop, can be used for
this purpose by making small variations in the 3
positions available.
If you want to make some accurate adjustment,
micro- adjustment can be made by turning the
micro depth adjustment knob (Fig11). A full turn
is equal to 1mm.

6. VARIABLE SPEED CONTROL SWITCH (fig13)
The variable speed control switch allows you to
vary the speed of the router enabling the optimum
speed to be selected for various size of router
bits and to avoid the workpiece being burnt,
this can occur especially when cross cutting. The
speed increases as you turn the switch towards
the higher numbers and decreases on the lower
numbers (1 being slowest and 7 fastest).
Note: Stop the router before adjusting the
variable speed.
8. RATE OF FEED
It is important to move the router at the correct
speed through the work. The incorrect speed may
produce a poor quality cut. Moving too fast can
cause bit damage and a rough uneven cut.
A too slow speed can cause the wood to burn
and the bit to overheat. The rate of feed will
vary depending on the size of bit, material and
router speed. To determine the best speed always
practice on a small unseen area or a spare piece
of the same material first.
9.USING THE ROUTER FREEHAND
The router can be used without any of the
guides allowing creative freehand work, such as
signwriting (Fig14). Use this feature only with a
shallow depth of cut. Note: as the router rotates
in a clockwise direction always move the tool in
a left to right direction as you stand facing your
work (Fig15 and 16).
When cutting an outside edge move the router
anti-clockwise; and clockwise to cut an inside
edge.
10. FITTING THE PARALLEL GUIDE
Before using the parallel guide you will need to
assemble the guide. Remove the two screws from
the parallel guide and fit the parallel guide shaft
using the screws you removed. Tighten screws
securely.Insert the parallel guide shafts into the
grooves in the base of the router. Adjust the guide
to the required cutting width and tighten the four
parallel guide locking screws (Fig17 and Fig18).
If you want to make some accurate adjustment,
micro- adjustment can be made by turning the
micro parallel adjustment knob.
11. FITTING THE TRAMMEL POINT AND
MAKING CIRCULAR CUTS (fig 19 and 20)
The trammel point allows you to make circular
cuts.
-Push the trammel point onto the guide shaft of
the edge guide and fasten it in place with the
thumb screw.
-Place the trammel point against the material.
-Set the required radius by adjusting
the shaft of the edge guide and tighten the edge
guide locking screws.
-Fixing router in required depth with lock lever.
-Switch on the machine
-After releasing the plunge lock lever, lower the
machine slowly.
-Cut grooves, shoulders, etc at a steady rate of
feed, holding the machine with both hands.
- When finished, raise the machine again.
-Switch off the machine.

12. USING THE GUIDE BUSH (fig 21 and 22)
Use this feature to cut out a shape from a template.
This is a useful method when you want to repeat
an image. Fix the guide bush to the router base
using the two long screws provided.
To obtain an exact copy, the workpiece must
be bigger by an amount equal to the difference
between the outer edge of the guide ring and the
outer edge of the cutter.
