RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
Q Do not abuse cord. Never carry the tool by the
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, and sharp
edges. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.
Q Polarized plugs. To reduce the risk of electric shock,
this equipment has 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 the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way.
Q Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry
that can get caught in moving parts. Nonslip footwear
is recommended. Also wear protective hair covering
to contain long hair.
Q Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses
have only impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT
safety glasses.
Q Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if
the operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Q Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.

FEATURES
DOUBLE INSULATION
CUTTER GUARD/VACUUM ATTACHMENT
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
The cutter guard provides a barrier to protect the operator
from contact with the cutter and is adjustable for all types
of cuts and materials. The cutter guard also doubles as
a vacuum attachment. You can insert a standard shop
vacuum into the top of the clear plastic ring to keep dust
down to a minimum.
MITER GAUGE
WARNING:
A miter gauge is used for mitered routing and to help
support wider pieces.
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the
tool's internal wiring. Observe all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical shock.
GUARDS
The undertable guard and rear safety guard ensure that
your hand, loose clothing, and other objects do not come
in contact with the cutter or collet during operation.
Important: Servicing of a tool with double insulation
requires extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be performed only by a qualified service
technician. For service, we suggest you return the tool to
your nearest authorized service center for repair. Always
use original factory replacement parts when servicing.
WARNING:
The undertable guard and rear safety guard must be
securely in place before using the router table. Failure to do so could result in serious personal injury.
SWITCH
The router table has a conveniently located toggle
switch. In addition, the router table is equipped with a
switch key. You must insert the key to turn the switch on.
If you remove the key during operation, you can turn the
switch off, but you may not turn it on again until you
replace the key.
THROAT PLATES
Five throat plates are included with the router table. The
throat plate provides a stable surface around the cutter
and prevents objects from falling through the throat and
damaging the spindle.
FENCE ASSEMBLY
WARNING:
The fence assembly provides an adjustable surface to
support and guide the work.
Do not allow familiarity with your router or router
table to make you careless. Remember that a careless fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict severe
injury.
STARTING PIN
When you are unable to use the fence for a guide
because the workpiece is odd-shaped or too small, use
the starting pin for a guide. Only use piloted cutters when
using the starting pin.
