GENERAL SAFETY RULES
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.
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 grounded power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b. 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.
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 Power 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 Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI 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 ANSI-approved safety goggles.
Safety equipment such as NIOSH-approved dust mask/respirator, NIOSHapproved hearing protection, and heavy duty work gloves will reduce personal
injuries.
c. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the Power Switch is in the off-position
before connecting to the power source or picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying
power tools with your finger on the Power Switch invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to an oscillating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
4
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 jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
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 Power 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 Power Cord from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the power tool. 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 accessories sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting accessories
with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool and its accessories 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. Service
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.
5
SPECIFIC SAFETY WARNINGS
1. Maintain labels and nameplates on the power tool. These carry important safety
information. If unreadable or missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools for a
replacement.
2. CAUTION: Avoid accidental injury. Keep hands and fingers safely away from
the oscillating Angled Scraper (4), Blades (501, 503), and Sanding Pad (502)
when operating the Tool.
3. Avoid unintentional starting. Prepare to begin work before turning on the power
tool.
4. Do not lay the power tool down until it has come to a complete stop. Moving
parts can grab the surface and pull the tool out of your control.
5. When using a handheld power tool, maintain a firm grip on the tool with both
hands to resist starting torque.
6. Do not leave the power tool unattended when it is plugged into an electrical outlet.
Turn off the tool, and unplug it from its electrical outlet before leaving.
7. This product is not a toy. Keep it out of reach of children.
8. People with pacemakers should consult their physician(s) before use.
Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to heart pacemaker could cause
pacemaker interference or pacemaker failure. In addition, people with pacemakers
should:
a. Avoid operating alone.
b. Do not use with power switch locked on.
c. Properly maintain and inspect to avoid electrical shock.
d. Any power cord must be properly grounded. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI) should also be implemented – it prevents sustained electrical shock.
9. Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities, contains chemicals known [to the State of California] to
cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
a. Lead from lead-based paints
b. Crystalline silica from bricks and cement or other masonry products
c. 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. (California Health & Safety
Code § 25249.5, et seq.)
10. Handling the Power Cord on this product will expose you to lead, a chemical
known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling. (California Health & Safety Code
§ 25249.5, et seq.)
11. The warnings, precautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual
cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be
understood by the operator that common sense and caution are factors which
cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.

VIBRATION SAFETY
This power tool vibrates during use. Repeated or long-term exposure to vibration may
cause temporary or permanent physical injury, particularly to the hands, arms and
shoulders. To reduce the risk of vibration-related injury:
1. Anyone using vibrating power tools regularly or for an extended period should first
be examined by a doctor and then have regular medical check-ups to ensure medical
problems are not being caused or worsened from use. Pregnant women or people who
have impaired blood circulation to the hand, past hand injuries, nervous system
disorders, diabetes, or Raynaud’s Disease should not use this tool. If you feel any
medical or physical symptoms related to vibration (such as tingling, numbness, and
white or blue fingers), seek medical advice as soon as possible.
2. Do not smoke during use. Nicotine reduces the blood supply to the hands and fingers,
increasing the risk of vibration-related injury.
3. Wear suitable gloves to reduce the vibration effects on the user.
4. Use power tools with the lowest vibration when there is a choice between different
processes.
5. Include vibration-free periods each day of work.
6. Grip the power tool as lightly as possible (while still keeping safe control of it). Let
the tool do the work.
7. To reduce vibration, maintain the power tool as explained in this manual. If any
abnormal vibration occurs, stop use immediately.

ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
WARNING: This drill press is for indoor use only. Do not expose to rain or
use in damp locations.
Guidelines for using extension cords
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. The
table below shows the correct size to be used according to cord length and nameplate
ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.

Not Recommended
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good condition. Always replace a
damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified person before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This circuit must not be less than a #12
wire and should be protected with a 15 A time-delayed fuse. Before connecting the motor
to the power line, make sure the switch is in the OFF position and the electric current is
rated the same as the current stamped on the motor nameplate. Running at a lower
voltage will damage the motor.
WARNING: This tool must be grounded while in use to protect the operator
from electric shock.
