1. General Safety Instructions For power tools

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.

1.1 Work area
a. Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of ammable liquids, gasses or dust.
Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust of fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.

1.2 Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in anyway.
Do not use any adapter plugs which 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.

1.3 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 in
uence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Safety 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 energizing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
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 jewelery. Keep your hair,clothing and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewelery 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.
The use of these pieces of equipment reduce hazards caused by dust.

1.4 Power tool use andcare
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 itwas designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
Any power tool that can not be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must berepaired.
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 andare easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in accordance with these instructions and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different from intended could result in a hazardous situation.

1.5 Battery tool use and care
a. Recharge only with the charger specifed by the manufacturer.
A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
b. Use power tools only with specifcally designated battery packs.
Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
c. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
d. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, ush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.

1.6 Service
a. Please use a qualifed expert who uses original replacement parts to repair your power tool.
This will ensure proper functioning of the power tool.

2. Safety Warnings for Screwdrivers

Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where the fastener may contact hidden wiring.
Fasteners contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give the operator an electric shock.
