POWER TOOLS ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS! Any tool that can cut wood can also cut skin and bone. Keep this in mind every time you use a power tool. Plan every cut carefully before starting the tool. Clamp work pieces securely before cutting, routing or sanding. Read and adhere to the safety guidelines that came with the power tool. These guidelines are written to help you avoid serious injuries.
