WARNING!
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
1.
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and 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.
SKU 92496
PAGE 2
3.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control. Protect others in the work area from debris such as chips and sparks. Provide barriers or shields as needed.
PERSONAL SAFETY
4.
Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
5.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
6.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure the Power Switch is off before plugging
in. Carrying power tools with your finger on the Power Switch, or plugging in power
tools with the Power Switch on, invites accidents.
7.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result
in personal injury.
8.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing
and balance enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
9.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
TOOL USE AND CARE
10.
Use clamps (not included) or other practical ways to secure and support the
workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body
is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
11.
Do not force the tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct
tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
12.
Do not use the power tool if the Power Switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the Power Switch is dangerous and must be
replaced.
13.
Disconnect the Power Cord Plug from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
SKU 92496
PAGE 3
TOOL USE AND CARE
14.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools
are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
15.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained tools with a sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are easier
to control. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “Do not use” until
16.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
17.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your
model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.
SERVICE
18.
Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
19.
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the “Inspection, Maintenance, And Cleaning” section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow maintenance instructions may create a risk of electric shock or injury.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
1.
Maintain labels and nameplates on the Heavy Duty Welding Kit. These carry
important information. If unreadable or missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools for
a replacement.
2.
Maintain a safe working environment. Keep the work area well lit. Make sure
there is adequate surrounding workspace. Always keep the work area free of
obstructions, grease, oil, trash, and other debris.
3.
Prevent eye injury and burns. Wearing and using personal safety clothing and
safety devices reduce the risk for injury. Wear ANSI approved welding goggles (such
as those included in this kit) featuring at least a number 10 shade lens rating. Leather
leggings, fire resistant shoes or boots should be worn when using this product. Do
not wear pants with cuffs, shirts with open pockets, or any clothing that can catch
and hold molten metal or sparks. Keep clothing free of grease, oil, solvents, or
any flammable substances. Wear dry, insulating gloves and protective clothing.
Wear an approved head covering to protect the head and neck. Use aprons, cape,
sleeves, shoulder covers, and bibs designed and approved for welding and cutting
procedures. When welding or cutting overhead or in confined spaces, wear flame
resistant ear plugs or ear muffs to keep sparks out of ears.
4.
Prevent accidental fires. Remove any combustible material from the work area.
When possible, move the work to a location well away from combustible materials. If
relocation is not possible, protect the combustibles with a cover made of fire resistant
material. Remove or make safe all combustible materials for a radius of 35 feet
(10 meters) around the work area. Use a fire resistant material to cover or block all
open doorways, windows, cracks, and other openings. Enclose the work area with
portable fire resistant screens. Protect combustible walls, ceilings, floors, etc., from
sparks and heat with fire resistant covers. If working on a metal wall, ceiling, etc.,
prevent ignition of combustibles on the other side by moving the combustibles to a
safe location. If relocation of combustibles is not possible, designate someone to
serve as a fire watch, equipped with a fire extinguisher, during the welding process
and for at least one half hour after the welding is completed. Do not weld or cut on
materials having a combustible coating or combustible internal structure, as in walls
or ceilings, without an approved method for eliminating the hazard. Do not dispose of
hot slag in containers holding combustible materials. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby
and know how to use it. After welding or cutting, make a thorough examination for
evidence of fire. Be aware that easily visible smoke or flame may not be present for
some time after the fire has started. Do not weld or cut in atmospheres containing
dangerously reactive or flammable gases, vapors, liquids, and dust. Provide
adequate ventilation in work areas to prevent accumulation of flammable gases,
vapors, and dust. Do not apply heat to a container that has held an unknown
substance or a combustible material whose contents, when heated, can produce
flammable or explosive vapors. Clean and purge containers before applying heat.
Vent closed containers, including castings, before preheating, welding, or cutting.
SKU 92496
PAGE 5
5.
Avoid overexposure to fumes and gases. Always keep your head out of the
fumes. Do not breathe the fumes. Use enough ventilation or exhaust, or both, to
keep fumes and gases from your breathing zone and general area. Where ventilation
is questionable, have a qualified technician take an air sampling to determine the
need for corrective measures. Use mechanical ventilation to improve air quality.
If engineering controls are not feasible, use an approved respirator. Work in a
confined area only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an air-supplied respirator.
Follow OSHA guidelines for Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL’s) for various fumes
and gases. Follow the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists
recommendations for Threshold Limit Values (TLV’s) for fumes and gases. Have
a recognized specialist in Industrial Hygiene or Environmental Services check the
operation and air quality and make recommendations for the specific welding or
cutting situation.
6.
Always keep the Welding Hoses (D1A, or D1B) away from moving parts on the
tool. Examine the Welding Hoses for cuts, burns, or worn areas before each use.
If any damaged areas are found, replace the Welding Hoses immediately.
7.
Read and understand all instructions and safety precautions as outlined in
the manufacturer’s manual for the material you will weld or cut.
SKU 92496

8.
Proper cylinder care. Secure cylinders to a cart, wall, or post, to prevent them from falling. All cylinders should be used and stored in an upright position. Never drop or strike a cylinder. Do not use cylinders that have been dented. Cylinder caps should be used when moving or storing cylinders. Empty cylinders should be kept in specified areas and clearly marked “empty”.
9.
Never use oil or grease on any inlet connector, outlet connector, or cylinder valves.
10.
Always use reverse-flow check valves on the torch and regulator. This greatly reduces the possibility of mixing gases in the regulator or hose.
11.
Working pressure on the Acetylene Regulator should NEVER be set above 15 PSI.
12.
There must be TWO O-Rings (C24, C25) on the Connector (C23) end. The
absence of either O-Ring can lead to flashback within the Torch Handle or Cutting
Attachment.
13.
For the Cutting Attachment, inspect the tapered seating surfaces on the Tip and in the Torch Head. Have a qualified technician resurface the seat area if it has dents, burrs, or is burned. A poor seating surface may result in backfire or flashback.
14. Backfire and flashback. When the flame goes out with a loud “pop”, it is called a backfire. Backfire can be caused by (1) operating the Torch at lower pressures than required for the Tip used, (2) touching the Tip against the workpiece, (3) overheating the Tip, or (4) an obstruction in the Tip. If backfire occurs, shut off the Torch Handle Valves (oxygen first) and after remedying the cause, relight the Torch. A flashback is a condition that results when the flame flashes back into the Torch and burns inside with a shrill hissing or squealing noise. If flashback occurs, close the Torch Handle Valves (oxygen first), IMMEDIATELY. Flashback generally indicates a problem that should be repaired. A clogged Tip, improper functioning of the Valves, or incorrect acetylene/oxygen pressure could lead to flashback. Make sure to find the cause before relighting the Torch.
