When the power tools are not used, it is best to disconnect them and place them in a safety area away from children’s reach. It is always best to use a vise or clamps when working with a project to assure your hands are both free to operate the power tool. Blades and cutters should always be clean, sharp and properly maintained for best performance.

One important precaution you should take is making sure the moving parts of the equipment is properly covered including the gears, belts, drums, shafts, sprockets, pulley, drums, spindles and flywheels. A power tool’s greatest hazard would be the electric shock, so before turning on the power, be sure the equipment is properly grounded.
