POWER TOOL SAFETY
GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY
WARNINGS
Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
! WARNING: Read all safety
warnings and instructions. Failure to
follow the warnings and instructions may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
injury.
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.
Save all warnings and instructions for
future reference.
When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord type suitable for
outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for
outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
WORK AREA SAFETY
Keep your work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools near
flammable liquids, gases, or dust.
Power tools create sparks which may
ignite flammable products or dust.
If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a ground
fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). Use of a
GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock.
Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do
not use any adaptor plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
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.
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.

POWER TOOL SAFETY
PERSONAL SAFETY – cont’d
Disconnect the plug from the power
source before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the power tool
accidentally.
Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source 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.
Persons unfamiliar with the power tool
should read this manual first before
operating the power tool. If needed,
contact your True Value retailer for
assistance.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench
before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothing, jewelry or long hair
can be a safety hazard.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained power tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
If devices are provided for the
connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure they are
connected properly and used. Use of the
dust collection system can reduce dustrelated hazards.
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 condition.
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
SERVICE
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 when used at the working
rate for which it was designed.
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.
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.
4
SPECIFIC SAFETY
Hold power tools by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact
with a “live” wire will make exposed metal
parts of the tool “live” and may cause
electrical shock to the operator.
Wear ear protectors with impact drills.
Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss.
Use auxiliary handles supplied with the
tool. Loss of control can cause personal
injury.

EXTENSION CORD USE & SAFETY
Make sure your extension cord is in
good condition. When using an extension
cord, be sure to use the proper minimum
gauge extension cord. An undersized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in
loss of power and overheating. The table
at right shows the correct size to use
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.
! WARNING
Repair or replace damaged or worn
extension cords immediately.
Select the appropriate extension cord
gauge and length using the chart below.

Not Applicable
Be sure your extension cord is properly
wired and in good condition. Always
replace a damaged extension cord or have
it repaired by a qualified electrician before
using it. Protect your extension cord from
sharp objects, excessive heat and damp or
wet areas.
When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an outdoor extension cord marked
“W-A” or “W”. These cords are rated for
outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric
shock.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your
power tools. This circuit must not be less
than 14 gauge wire and should be
protected with either a 15 Ampere time
delay fuse or circuit breaker. Before
connecting the power tool to the power
source, make sure the switch is in the OFF
position and the power source is the same
as indicated on the nameplate. Running at
lower voltage will damage the motor.
! WARNING
Keep the extension cord clear of the
working area. Position the cord so it will
not get caught on the workpiece, tools
or any other obstructions while you are
working with the power tool.

!
Fig. 4
WARNING
Be prepared for binding and bit
breakthrough. When these situations
occur, the drill bit has the tendency to
grab the workpiece. This action will kick
the drill opposite to the direction of drill
bit rotation and could cause loss of
control when breaking through material
as you complete drilling the hole. If you
are not prepared, this loss of control
can result in possible serious injury.
When drilling metals, use a light oil on the
drill bit to keep it from overheating. The oil
will prolong the life of the drill bit and
improve the drill cutting action. If the bit
jams in the workpiece or if the drill stalls,
release the trigger switch immediately.
Remove the bit from the workpiece and
determine the reason for jamming.
4.
Open chuck jaws and remove hex
key.
5.
Open chuck jaws as far as possible
using the chuck key.
