General Power Tool Safety Warnings
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.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
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) 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.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
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.
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.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current
device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3) Personal safety
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.
b) 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.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool.
Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.

General Power Tool Safety Warnings
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a
key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and
gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities,
ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dustrelated hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) 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 at the rate for which it was designed.
b) 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.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power
tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) 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.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) 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 situation.
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.

Safety instruction for cutting
1. Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where
the cutting accessory may contact hidden 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.
2. Always wear a dust mask

Operating Instructions
NOTE: Before using the tool, read the instruction book carefully.
Intended Use
The power tool is intended for sawing and remodeling wooden materials, plastic, plaster,
non-ferrous metals and fasteners (e.g. nails and clamps) as well as for working on soft
wall tiles and for dry grinding of small surfaces. It is especially suitable for working close to
edges and for flush cutting.
WARNING: Before working your tool make sure that no power cords will be
damaged. Before mounting or replacing application tools or accessories, pull
the power plug. This preventative safety measure eliminates danger from accidentally
starting the power tool.
Do not touch the gear box after long working time, because it could be hot.
CAUTION: For all work or when changing application tools, always wear protective
gloves. Avoid danger of injury from the sharp edges of the application tools.

Working Hints For Your Tool
If your power tool becomes too hot, especially when used at low speed, set the speed to
maximum and run it with no load for 2-3 minutes to cool the motor. Avoid prolonged usage
at very low speeds. Always keep the blade sharp.
Always ensure the workpiece is firmly held or clamped to prevent movement.
Any movement of the material may affect the quality of the cutting or sanding finish.
Start your tool before working and turn it off only after you stop working.
Do not start sanding without having the sandpaper fitted.
Do not allow the sandpaper to wear away, it will damage the sanding pad. The guarantee
does not cover sanding pad wear and tear.
Use coarse grit paper to sand rough surfaces, medium grit for smooth surfaces and fine
grit for finishing surfaces. If necessary, first make a test run on scrap material.
Excessive force will reduce the working efficiency and cause motor overload. Replacing the
accessory regularly will maintain optimum working efficiency.
Remove the plug from the socket before carrying out any adjustment, servicing or
Your power tool requires no additional lubrication or maintenance. There are no user
serviceable parts in your power tool. Never use water or chemical cleaners to clean your
power tool. Wipe clean with a dry cloth. Always store your power tool in a dry place. Keep
the motor ventilation slots clean. Keep all working controls free of dust. Occasionally you
may see sparks through the ventilation slots. This is normal and will not damage your
power tool.
