PT® POWER HAND THREADER
General Safety Information
• When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord
marked “W-A” or “W”. These cords are rated for outdoor use and
reduce the risk of electrical shock.
• Use only three-wire extension cords which have three-prong
grounding plugs and three-pole receptacles which accept the tool’s
plug. Use of other extension cords will not ground the tool and
increase the risk of electrical shock.
• Use proper extension cords. (See chart.) Insufficient conductor size
will cause excessive voltage drop and loss of power.
Read and understand all instructions.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below may
result in electric shock, fire, and/or serious
personal injury.
Work Area Safety
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark
areas invite accidents.
• Keep all electric connections dry and off the ground.
Do not touch plugs or tool with wet hands.
Reduces the risk of electrical shock.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in
the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust.
Tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Personal Safety
• Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
• Keep floors dry and free of slippery materials such as oil.
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medications. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
• 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.
• Guard or the area when work piece extends beyond machine.
A guard or barricade that provides a minimum of three feet clearance
around the work piece will reduce the risk of entanglement.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is OFF before plugging in.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in tools that
have the switch ON invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting keys before turning the tool ON. A wrench or a
key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in
personal injury.
Electrical Safety
• Grounded tools must be plugged into an outlet, properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all codes and
ordinances. Never remove the grounding prong or modify the plug in
any way. Do not use any adapter plugs. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly
grounded. If the tool should electrically malfunction or break down,
grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away
from the user.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in
unexpected situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used
for appropriate conditions.
• Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces.
There is an increased risk of electrical shock if your body is grounded.
• Don’t expose electrical tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a tool will increase the risk of
electrical shock.
• Do not abuse cord. Never use the cord to carry the tools or pull the
plug from an outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts.
Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the
risk of electrical shock.

Tool Use and Care
Foot Switch Safety
• Do not use tool if switch does not turn it ON or
OFF. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
Using a power drive or threading machine without a
foot switch increases the risk of serious injury. A
foot switch provides better control by letting you
shut off the motor by removing your foot. If clothing
should become caught in the machine, it will continue
to wind up, pulling you into the machine. Because
the machine has high torque, the clothing itself can
bind around your arm or other body parts with
enough force to crush or break bones.
• Disconnect the 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.
• Store idle tools out of the reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
Machine Safety
• Power Drive is made to thread and cut pipe or
bolt and to power roll grooving equipment.
Follow instructions on proper use of this
machine. Do not use for other purposes such
as drilling holes or turning winches. Other uses or
modifying this power drive for other applications may
increase the risk of serious injury.
• 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.
• Use only accessories that are recommended for
your tool. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool
may become hazardous when used on another tool.
• Secure machine to bench or stand. Support long
heavy pipe with pipe supports. This practice will
prevent tipping.
• Keep handles dry and clean; free from oil and
grease. Allows for better control of the tool.
Service
• Do not wear gloves or loose clothing when operating
machine. Keep sleeves and jackets buttoned.
Do not reach across the machine or pipe. Clothing
can be caught by the pipe or machine resulting in
entanglement and serious injury.
• Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified repair personnel could result in injury.
• Operate machine from side with REV/OFF/FOR
switch. Eliminates need to reach over the machine.
• When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement
parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance
Section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or
failure to follow maintenance instructions may create a
risk of electrical shock or injury.
• Do not use this machine if the foot switch is broken
or missing. Foot switch is a safety device to
prevent serious injury.

PT® POWER HAND THREADER
Machine Inspection
Machine and Work Area Set-Up
To prevent serious injury, inspect your
hand power threader. The
following inspection procedures should be performed on a daily basis:
1. Make sure Threading Machine is unplugged and the directional
switch is set to the OFF position.
To prevent serious injury, proper set-up of the
machine and work area is required. The following
procedures should be followed to set-up the
threader.
1. Locate a work area that has the following:
• Adequate lighting
• No flammable liquids, vapors or dust that may ignite.
• Grounded electrical outlet
• Clear path to the electrical outlet that does not contain any sources of
heat or oil, sharp edges or moving parts that may damage electrical
cord.
• Dry place for machine and operator. Do not use the machine while
standing in water.
2. Clean the speed chuck jaws with a wire brush.
3. Inspect the power cord and plug for damage. If the plug has been
modified, is missing the grounding pin or if the cord is damaged, do not
use the threader until the cord has been replaced.
4. Inspect the threader for any broken, missing, misaligned or binding
parts as well as any other conditions which may affect the safe and
normal operation of the machine. If any of these conditions
are present, do not use the threader until any problem has been
repaired.
2. Clean up the work area prior to setting up any equipment.
Always wipe up any oil that may have splashed or dripped from the
machine to prevent slips and falls.
5. Lubricate the Threading Machine if necessary according to the
Maintenance Instructions.
Safety Requirements
6. Use tools and accessories that are designed for your threader and
meet the needs of your application. The correct tools and accessories
allow you to do the job successfully and safely. Accessories designed
for use with other equipment may be hazardous when used with this
threader.
To avoid electrical shock and electrical fires, never use
an extension cord that is damaged or does not meet
the following requirements:
•The cord has a three-prong plug similar to shown in Electrical Safety
section.
•The cord is rated as “W” or “W-A” if being used outdoors.
•The cord has sufficient wire thickness (14 AWG below 25’/12
AWG 25’-50’). If the wire thickness is too small, the cord may overheat,
melting the cord’s insulation or causing nearby objects to ignite.
7. Clean any oil, grease or dirt from all handles and controls. This
reduces the risk of injury due to a tool or control slipping from your grip.
Inspect the cutting edges of your tools and dies. If necessary, have
them replaced prior to using the Threader. Dull or damaged cutting tools
and dies can lead to binding, tool breakage and poor quality threads.
NOTE! Thread cutting oil lubricates and cools the threads
during the threading operation. A dirty or poor grade cutting oil can
result in poor thread quality.
