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.
General safety rules
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.
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.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
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.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
or dark areas invite accidents.
f) To reduce the risk of electric shock, the
manufacturer recommends the use of
a residual current device with a rated
residual current of 30mA or less at all
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.
3) Personal safety
c) Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
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.
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) Use personal protective equipment. Always

off with a course grit and work your way through to a
finer one until the desired finish is achieved.
• Different grades of sanding paper can be purchased from
your local hardware store. Available grades are: Coarse,
Medium and Fine.
• Use a coarse grit to sand down rough finishes, medium
grit to smooth the work and fine grit to finish off.
• It is best to make a trial run on a scrap piece of material
to determine the optimum grades of sandpaper for
a particular job. If there are still marks on your work
after sanding, try either going back to a coarser grade
and sanding the marks out before recommencing with
the original choice of grit, or try using a new piece of
