    KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL-Read the owner's manual carefully. Learn its application and limitations as well as the specific potential hazards peculiar to this tool.

  • 2.

    GROUND ALL TOOLS-If tool is equipped a with three-prong plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole receptacle. If an adapter is used to accommodate a two- prong receptacle, the adapter wire must be attached to a KNOWN GROUND. Never remove third the prong. (See Figure 1.)

  • 3.

    KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE-and in working order.

  • 4.

    REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES-Form a habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning on machine.
