WARNING: Read all safety warnings and instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term power tool in the warnings refers to your electric (corded)
power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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 children and bystanders 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. 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.
2. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
3. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool.
Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.
4. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
6. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and
gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
7. If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection
facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection
can reduce dust-related hazards.

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. 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.
2. 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.
3. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power
tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
7. 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 those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
8. Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a
stable platform.
9. Holding the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may lead to
loss of control.
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. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with grounded power tools. Unmodified plugs
and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.

WARNING: Double insulation DOES NOT take the place of normal safety
precautions when operating this tool.
3. Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.
4. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
5. 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.
6. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor
use marked “W-A” or “W”. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
7. If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a Ground Fault
Circuit Interupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of
electric shock.
EXTENSION CORDS
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in
line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct
size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

MAINTENANCE
!
WARNING: To ensure safety and reliability, repairs, maintenance and
adjustments MUST be performed by a qualified service technician at a
Sears Service Center.
! WARNING: For your safety, ALWAYS turn off switch and unplug planer
from the power source before performing any maintenance or cleaning.
It has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated wear and possible
premature failure when they are used to work on fiber glass boats and sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds or plaster. The chips and grindings from these materials
are highly abrasive to electrical tool parts, such as bearings, brushes, commutators, etc.
Consequently, it is not recommended that this tool be used for extended work on any
fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compound or plaster. During any use on these
materials, it is extremely important that the tool is cleaned frequently by blowing with
an air jet.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE cont.
LUBRICATION
Your Craftsman® Planer has been properly lubricated and is ready to use.
No further lubrication is needed under normal operating conditions. All bearings in the
planer are lubricated for the life of the tool.
ACCESSORIES
BLADES
The blades for your planer are currently available at your local Sears Store.
! WARNING: The use of attachments or accessories that are not
recommended may be dangerous.
! WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields
during power tool operations, or when blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also
wear a dust mask.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
! WARNING: DO NOT at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, penetrating oils, etc. come in contact with plastic parts.
Chemicals can damage, weaken or destroy plastic, which may result in
serious personal injury.
Periodic maintenance allows for long life and trouble-free operation. A cleaning,
lubrication and maintenance schedule should be maintained. As a common
preventative maintenance practice, follow these recommended steps:
! WARNING: For your safety, ALWAYS turn off switch and unplug planer
from the power source before performing any maintenance or cleaning.
1. When work has been completed, clean the tool to allow smooth functioning of the tool
over time.
2. Use clean damp cloths to wipe the tool.
3. Check the state of all electrical cables.
4. Keep the motor air openings free from oil, grease and sawdust or woodchips,
and store tool in a dry place.
5. Be certain that all moving parts are well lubricated, particularly after lengthy exposure
to damp and /or dirty conditions.
