SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(For All Tools)
WARNING: WHEN USING ELECTRIC TOOLS, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED TO
REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, AND PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
1. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
2. CONSIDER WORK AREA ENVIRONMENT. Don't use power tools in damp
or wet locations. Keep work area well lit. Don't expose power tools t o rain.
Don't use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases.
3. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept away from work area.
Don't let visitors contact tool or extension cord.
4.STORE IDLE TOOLS. When not in use, tools should be stored in dry, and high
or locked-up place - out of reach of children.
5. DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which
it was intended.
6. USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force small tool or attachment t o do the job of a
heavy-duty tool. Don't use tool for purpose not intended.
7 . DRESS PROPERLY. Don't wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught
in moving parts. Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are recommended
when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering t o contain long hair.
8. USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is
dusty.
9. DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by cord or yank it t o disconnect from
receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
IO. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise t o hold work. It's safer than using
your hand and it frees both hands t o operate tool.
11. DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
12.MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and
safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged, have repaired by authorized service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if
damaged. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.
13. DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before servicing, and when changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters.
L
14. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking t o
see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning
it on.
15. AVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don’t carry plugged-in tool with finger
on switch. Be sure switch is OFF when plugging in.
16. OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is used outdoors, use only
extension cords intended for use outdoors and so marked.
17. STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing, use common sense. Don‘t operate
tool when you are tired.
18. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other
part that is damaged should be carefully checked t o determine that it will
operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of
moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any
other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that
is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual.
Have defective switches replaced by authorized service center. Don’t use
tool if switch does not turn it on and off.
19. GUARD AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK. Prevent body contact with grounded
surfaces. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges, refrigerator enclosures.
20. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing, use only identical replacement parts.
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool t o a power source (receptacle,
outlet, etc.) be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the
nameplate of the tool. A power source with voltage greater than that specified
for the tool can result in SERIOUS INJURY t o the user - as well as damage t o
the tool. If in doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL. Using a power source with
voltage less than the nameplate rating is harmful t o the motor.

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
1. Always be sure you have a firm footing.
Be sure no one is below when using the tool in high locations.
2. Hold the tool firmly.
3. Keep hands away from rotating parts.
4. When drilling into walls, floors or wherever "live" electrical wires may be
encountered, DO NOT TOUCH ANY METAL PARTS OF THE TOOL!
Hold the tool by the insulated grasping surfaces to prevent electric shock if
you drill into a "live" wire.
5. Do not leave the tool running. Operate the tool only when hand-held.
6. Do not touch the drill bit or the workpiece immediately after operation; they
may be extremely hot and could burn your skin.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Installing or removing drill bit
CAUTION :
Always be sure that the tool is switched off and unplugged before installing or removing
the bit.
To install the bit, place it in the chuck as
far as it will go. Tighten the chuck by hand.
Place the chuck key in each of the three
holes and tighten clockwise. Be sure to
tighten all three chuck holes evenly.
To remove the bit, turn the chuck key
counterclockwise in just one hole, then
loosen the chuck by hand.
Switch action
Move the reversing switch lever to the
"FWD" position for clockwise rotation or
the "REV" position for counterclockwise.
The trigger switch does not actuate if the
reversing switch lever is in the neutral position.
Tool speed i s increased by increasing pressure on the trigger. To start the tool,
simply pull the trigger. Release the trigger
to stop. For continuous operation, pull the
trigger and then push in the lock button.
To stop the tool from the locked position,
pull the trigger fully, then release it. A
speed control screw i s provided so that
maximum tool speed can be limited (variable). Turn the speed control screw clockwise for higher speed, and counterclockwise for lower speed.
5
CAUTION :
0 Before plugging in the tool, always check to see that the trigger switch actuates properly
and returns to the "OFF" position when released.
*Always check the direction of rotation before drilling.
0
Use the reversing switch lever only when the tool comes to a complete stop. Changing
the direction of rotation before the tool stops may ruin the tool.
When not operating the tool, keep the reversing switch lever in the neutral position.
*Pulling the trigger hard when the reversing switch lever is in the neutral position can
cause switch breakage.
Drilling operation
0
Drilling in wood.
When drilling holes in the wood, use a wood drill with a guide screw. The guide screw
makes it bore naturally by itself, so you do not need to apply any pressure to the tool.
Drilling in metal
To prevent the bit from slipping when starting a hole, make an indentation with a centerpunch and hammer a t the point to be drilled. Place the point of the bit in the indentation and start drilling.
Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are iron and brass which
should be drilled dry.
CAUTION :
*Pressing excessively on the tool will not speed up the drilling. In fact, this excessive
pressure will only serve to damage the tip of your bit, decrease the tool performance
and shorten the service life of the tool.
*There i s a tremendous force exerted on the tool/bit a t the time of hole break through.
Hold the tool firmly and exert care when the bit begins to break through the workpiece.
0 Always grip the small workpiece firmly with a vise or a holding means.
* A stuck bit can be removed simply by setting the reversing switch to reverse rotation
in order to back out. However, the tool will pull away easily unless you hold it firmly
before starting the tool.
