POWER TOOL GENERAL
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(These General Power Tool Safety Instructions
are as specified in BS EN 60745-1:2009 & EN
61029-1:2009)
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 mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Work area safety]
•
Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
•
Do not operate power tools in
explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gasses
or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
•

Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Electrical Safety]
•
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 the risk of electric shock.
•
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.
•
•
•
•
Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
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.
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.
If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply.
Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3) General Power Tool Safety Warnings
[Personal Safety].
•
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.

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.
•
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with
8
sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
•
Use the power tool, accessories and
tool bits etc. in accordance with these
instructions, 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.

•
•
•
Never place your hands within the ‘no hands
zone’ (at least 150mm away from the blade). Keep
hands away from the path of the blade.
Secure the workpiece firmly to the table and
against the fence to prevent any movement.
Use a Hold Down Clamp if possible but check that
it is so positioned that it does not interfere with
the path of the blade or other moving machine
parts.
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where
a sudden slip could cause your fingers or a hand to
move into the blade.
Before attempting a cut, make a ‘dry run’ with
the power off so that you can see the path of the
blade.
Keep your hands in position until the ON/OFF
trigger switch has been released and the blade
has completely stopped.
ADJUSTMENT of PRECISION ANGLES
Several checks/adjustments are possible on this
machine. The operator will require a 900- 450/450 Set
Square (not supplied) to carry out these checks and
adjustments.
WARNING: Checks/adjustments must only be
conducted with the machine disconnected from the
