Cutting operation produces substantial noise.
Things to Avoid
- Do not use faulty equipment. Immediately report suspect equipment.
- Do not exceed the maximum cut for the machine.
- Do not cut branches, dowel, or wood with embedded nails or screws.
- Do not cut ferrous material.
- Never have your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to cut.
- Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
- Never operate the tool with one hand while holding the workpiece with the other hand. Always clamp the material and guide the tool with both hands.
- Do not cut metal.
- Never run the motor unit when it is not inserted in one of the router bases.
- NEVER touch the bit immediately after use.
- Locate and ensure you are familiar with all machine operations and controls.
- Do not cut material lying on a hard surface. Ensure clearance exists behind material to be cut.
- Check for damaged parts. Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
- Check workspaces and walkways to ensure no slip/trip hazards are present.
- Ensure the work area is clean and uncluttered. Keep table and work area clear of all tools, off-cut timber and sawdust.
- Start the dust extraction unit before using the machine.
- Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, because the cutter may contact its own cord.
- Do not start the tool with bit engaged in the material. The bit may grab the material.
- Maintain firm grip with both hands on router to resist starting torque.
- Ensure all adjustments are secure before making a cut.
- Secure the workpiece with clamps and against the guard fences and support the workpiece on a stable platform. Do not use a length stop on the free scrap end of a clamped workpiece.
- Practice trigger safety by removing finger from trigger until ready to cut.
- Be sure that the motor has stopped completely before you lay the router down.
- Cut in clockwise motions (avoid climb-cutting).
- Disconnect plug from power supply before making adjustments, changing bits or cleaning tool.
- Remove debris from area using the shop-vac.
