Warning: alWaySuse safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses are NOT safety glasses. Also use
face or dust mask if drilling operation is dusty. ALWAYS WEAR CERTIFIED SAFETY EQUIPMENT:
•ANSI Z87.1 eye protection (CAN/CPA Z94.3),
•ANSI S12.6 (S3.19) hearing protection,
•NOSH/OSHA respiratory protection.
Warning:
Somedustcreatedbypowersanding,sawing,grinding,drilling,andother
construction activities contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer,
birthdefectsorotherreproductiveharm.Someexamplesofthesechemicalsare:
•lead from lead-based paints,
•crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
constructionactivities.Wearprotectiveclothingandwashexposedareaswithsoapandwater.
Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
Warning: useofthistoolcangenerateand/ordispersedust,whichmaycauseserious
and permanent respiratory or other injury. Always use NOSH/OSHA approved respiratory
protection appropriate for the dust exposure. Direct particles away from face and body. Always
operate tool in well-ventilated area and provide for proper dust removal. Use dust collection
system wherever possible.
Warning: alWaySwearproperpersonalhearingprotectionthatconformstoanSi

d) Supportlargepanelstominimizetheriskofbladepinchingandkickback. Large
panels tend to sag under their own weight. Supports must be placed under the panel on both
sides, near the line of cut and near the edge of the panel.
e) Donotusedullordamagedblades. Unsharpened or improperly set blades produce
narrow kerf causing excessive friction, blade binding and kickback.

1. Make sure that the material to be cut is clamped down and is stable enough to support the
router during operation.
2. Use both hands on the power unit to control the router, and run the router at full speed at all
times. See figureD.
3. Move the router counterclockwise when cutting outside edges. Move clockwise when cutting
inside edges. See figuree.

feeDingSpeeDanDrateOfcut
Variation between materials and bit configurations dictates a wide variety of feed rates. Experience is
the best measure for determining feed rate. Become familiar with the sound and feel of the router by
making practice cuts in scrap material.
The router bit rotates at a very high speed and may heat up if the router is moved too slowly through
the wood and cause burn marks. Feeding the router too fast or trying to remove too much material in
