SAFETY AND OPERATING MANUAL High frequency multi-function tool WX670 WX671 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: Read all safety warnings and all 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. WORK AREA SAFETY a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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) 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. 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 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. c) 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 energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents. d) 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. 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 dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards. High frequency multi-function tool WX670 WX671 4. 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 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. 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 tool’s 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, 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. 5. BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE a) Recharge only with the charger speciﬁed by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of ﬁre when used with another battery pack. b) Use power tools only with speciﬁcally designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and ﬁre. c) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a ﬁre. d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, ﬂush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns. 6. 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.

SECURING THE WORK PIECE CAUTION:Before working your tool make sure that no live cables will be damaged. WARNING: Do not touch the gear box after long working time, because it could be hot. Sanding Typical application: wood, metal; small areas, especially corners, edges and places difﬁcult to access. Select high oscillation frequency (WX671). Sanding with a constant movement and light pressure. Pressing on heavily does not increase the removal – the sanding sheet merely becomes worn faster. Sawing with the segment saw blade Typical application: wood, plastics, sheet metal. Select high oscillation frequency (WX671). The saw blade lasts longer if the wear is distributed evenly. To ensure an even distribution, loosen the saw blade, turn it round a little and then tighten again ﬁrmly. Sawing with the standard straight cutter (see C) WARNING: The sawing teeth are very sharp. Do not touch during mounting and application. The workpiece must be inserted ﬁrmly or clamped tightly before it is processed. Typical application: wood, plaster board and soft plastics. Not suitable for metal (e. g. nails) and stone. When plunging and sawing with a slight pendulum motion, make sure that sufﬁcient chip removal is provided for. High frequency multi-function tool WX670 WX671 WORKING HINTS FOR YOUR TOOL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION If your power tool becomes too hot, especially when used at low speed, set the speed to maximum and run it with no load for 2-3 minutes to cool the motor. Avoid prolonged usage at very low speeds. Always keep the blade sharp. Always ensure the work-piece is ﬁrmly held or clamped to prevent movement. Any movement of the material may affect the quality of the cutting or sanding ﬁnish. Start your tool before working and turn it off only after you stop working. Do not start sanding without having the sandpaper ﬁtted. Do not allow the sandpaper to wear away it will damage the base-plate. The guarantee does not cover base-plate wear and tear.
