Safety Warnings Common for Grinding, Sanding,
Wire Brushing, or Abrasive Cutting-Off Operations:
This power tool is intended to function as a grinder,
Sander, wire brush or cut-off tool. Read all safety
warnings, instructions, illustrations and specifica
tions provided with this power tool. Failure to follow
all instructions listed below may result in electric shock,
fire and/or serious injury.
2. Operations such as polishing are not rec
ommended to be performed with this power
tool. Operations for which the power tool was not
designed may create a hazard and cause per
sonal injury,
Do not use accessories which are not specifi
cally designed and recommended by the tool
manufacturer. Just because the accessory can
be attached to your power tool, it does not assure
safe operation.
4. The rated speed of the accessory must be at
least equal to the maximum speed marked on
the power tool. Accessories running faster than
their rated speed can break and fly apart.
The outside diameter and the thickness of your
accessory must be within the capacity rating
of your power tool. Incorrectly sized accessories
cannot be adequately guarded or controlled.
Threaded mounting of accessories must match the
grinder spindle thread. For accessories mounted
by flanges, the arbour hole of the accessory must
fit the locating diameter of the flange. Accessories
that do not match the mounting hardware of the power
tool will run out of balance, vibrate excessively and may
cause loss of control.
Do not use a damaged accessory. Before each
use inspect the accessory such as abrasive
wheels for chips and cracks, backing pad
for cracks,tear or excess wear, wire brush
for loose or cracked wires. If power tool or
accessory is dropped, inspect for damage or
install an undamaged accessory. After inspect
ing and installing an accessory, position your
self and bystanders away from the plane of
the rotating accessory and run the power tool
at maximum no-ioad speed for one minute.
Damaged accessories will normally break apart
during this test time.
Wear personal protective equipment.
Depending on application, use face shield,
safety goggles or safety glasses. As appro
priate, wear dust mask, hearing protectors,
gloves and workshop apron capable of stop
ping small abrasive or workpiece fragments.
The eye protection must be capable of stopping
flying debris generated by various operations.
The dust mask or respirator must be capable of
filtrating particles generated by your operation.
Prolonged exposure to high intensity noise may
cause hearing loss.
Keep bystanders a safe distance away from
work area. Anyone entering the work area
must wear personal protective equipment.
Fragments of workpiece or of a broken accessory
may fly away and cause injury beyond immediate
area of operation.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, when performing an operation
where the cutting accessory may contact hid
den wiring or its own cord. Cutting accessory
contacting a "live" wire may make exposed metal
parts of the power tool "live" and could give the
operator an electric shock.
Position the cord clear of the spinning acces
sory. If you lose control, the cord may be cut or
snagged and your hand or arm may be pulled into
the spinning accessory.
Never lay the power tool down until the acces
sory has come to a complete stop. The spinning
accessory may grab the surface and pull the
power tool out of your control.
Do not run the power tool while carrying it at
your side. Accidental contact with the spinning
accessory could snag your clothing, pulling the
accessory into your body.
Regularly clean the power tool's air vents. The
motor's fan will draw the dust inside the housing
and excessive accumulation of powdered metal
may cause electrical hazards.
Do not operate the power tool near flammable
materials. Sparks could ignite these materials.
Do not use accessories that require liquid
coolants. Using water or other liquid coolants
may result in electrocution or shock.
Kickback and Related Warnings
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched or snagged
rotating wheel, backing pad, brush or any other acces
sory. Pinching or snagging causes rapid stalling of the
rotating accessory which in turn causes the uncon
trolled power tool to be forced in the direction opposite
of the accessory's rotation at the point of the binding.
For example, if an abrasive wheel is snagged or
pinched by the workpiece, the edge of the wheel that is
entering into the pinch point can dig into the surface of
the material causing the wheel to climb out or kick out.
The wheel may either jump toward or away from the
operator, depending on direction of the wheel's move
ment at the point of pinching. Abrasive wheels may also
break under these conditions.
Kickback is the result of power tool misuse and/or
incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be
avoided by taking proper precautions as given below.
Maintain a firm grip on the power tool and
position your body and arm to allow you to
resist kickback forces. Always use auxiliary
handle, if provided,for maximum control over
kickback or torque reaction during start-up.
The operator can control torque reactions or kick
back forces, if proper precautions are taken.
Never place your hand near the rotating acces
sory. Accessory may kickback over your hand.
Do not position your body in the area where
power tool will move if kickback occurs.
Kickback will propel the tool in direction opposite
to the wheel's movement at the point of snagging.
Use special care when working corners, sharp
edges etc. Avoid bouncing and snagging the
accessory. Corners, sharp edges or bouncing
have a tendency to snag the rotating accessory
Additional Safety Warnings Specific for Abrasive
Cutting-Off Operations:
1. Do not "jam" the cut-off wheel or apply exces
sive pressure. Do not attempt to make an
excessive depth of cut. Overstressing the wheel
increases the loading and susceptibility to twisting
or binding of the wheel in the cut and the possibil
ity of kickback or wheel breakage.
Do not position your body in iine with and
behind the rotating wheel. When the wheel, at
the point of operation, is moving away from your
body, the possible kickback may propel the spin
ning wheel and the power tool directly at you.
When wheel is binding or when interrupting
a cut for any reason, switch off the power
tool and hold the power tool motionless until
the wheel comes to a complete stop. Never
attempt to remove the cut-off wheel from the
cut while the wheel is in motion otherwise
and cause loss of control or kickback.
Do not attach a saw chain woodcarving blade
or toothed saw blade. Such blades create fre
quent kickback and loss of control.
Safety Warnings Specific for Grinding and Abrasive
Cutting-Off Operations:
Use only wheel types that are recommended
for your power tool and the specific guard
designed for the selected wheel. Wheels for
which the power tool was not designed cannot be
adequately guarded and are unsafe.
The grinding surface of centre depressed
wheels must be mounted below the plane of
the guard lip. An improperly mounted wheel that
projects through the plane of the guard lip cannot
be adequately protected.
The guard must be securely attached to the
power tool and positioned for maximum safety,
so the least amount of wheel is exposed
towards the operator. The guard helps to protect
the operator from broken wheel fragments, acci
dental contact with wheel and sparks that could
ignite clothing.
Wheels must be used only for recommended
applications. For example: do not grind with
the side of cut-off wheel. Abrasive cut-off wheels
are intended for peripheral grinding, side forces
applied to these wheels may cause them to
Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are
of correct size and shape for your selected
wheel. Proper wheel flanges support the wheel
thus reducing the possibility of wheel breakage.
Flanges for cut-off wheels may be different from
grinding wheel flanges.
Do not use worn down wheels from larger
power tools. Wheel intended for larger power tool
is not suitable for the higher speed of a smaller
tool and may burst.
kickback may occur. Investigate and take correc
tive action to eliminate the cause of wheel binding.
Do not restart the cutting operation in the
workpiece. Let the wheel reach full speed and
carefully re-enter the cut. The wheel may bind,
walk up or kickback if the power tool is restarted in
the workpiece.
Support panels or any oversized workpiece to
minimize the risk of wheei pinching and kick
back. Large workpieces tend to sag under their
own weight. Supports must be placed under the
workpiece near the line of cut and near the edge
of the workpiece on both sides of the wheel.
Use extra caution when making a "pocket cut"
into existing walls or other blind areas. The
protruding wheel may cut gas or water pipes, elec
trical wiring or objects that can cause kickback.
Safety Warnings Specific for Sanding Operations:
Do not use excessively oversized sanding
disc paper. Follow manufacturers recommen
dations, when selecting sanding paper. Larger
sanding paper extending beyond the sanding
pad presents a laceration hazard and may cause
snagging, tearing of the disc or kickback.
Safety Warnings Specific for Wire Brushing
Be aware that wire bristles are thrown by the
brush even during ordinary operation. Do not
overstress the wires by applying excessive
ioad to the brush. The wire bristles can easily
penetrate light clothing and/or skin.
If the use of a guard is recommended for wire
brushing, do not aiiow any interference of the
wire wheel or brush with the guard. Wire wheel
or brush may expand in diameter due to work load
and centrifugal forces.
Additionai Safety Warnings:
When using depressed centre grinding wheels,
be sure to use only fiberglass-reinforced
