GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• ALWAYS Learn the machines applications, limitations and specific potential hazards peculiar to it. Read and become familiar with the entire operating manual.
• ALWAYS use a face or dust mask.
• ALWAYS check for damage before use, any damaged part should be checked to ensure that it will operate properly and perform it’s intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, breakage of parts, mountings, and any other condition which may effect the machines operation. Any damage should be properly repaired or the part replaced . If in any doubt DO NOT use the machine. Consult your local dealer.
• ALWAYS disconnect the tool/machine from the power supply before servicing and when changing accessories.
• ALWAYS wear safety goggles, manufactured to the latest European safety standards. Everyday glasses do not have impact resistant lenses, they are NOT safety glasses.
• ALWAYS keep work area clean. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.
• ALWAYS ensure that adequate lighting is available. A minimum intensity of 300 lux should be provided. Ensure the lighting is placed so you will not be working in your own shadow.
• ALWAYS keep children away. All visitors should be kept at a safe distance from the work area, especially whilst operating the machine.
• ALWAYS maintain machine in top condition. Keep tools/machines clean for best performance. Follow maintenance instructions.
• ALWAYS ensure the ON switch if OFF before plugging into the mains. Avoid accidental starting.
• ALWAYS handle with extreme care, do not carry the tool/machine by it’s electrical cable, or yank the cable to disconnect it from the power supply.
• ALWAYS concentrate on the job at hand, no matter how trivial it may seem. Be aware that accidents are caused by carelessness due to familiarity.
• ALWAYS wear proper apparel. Loose clothing or jewellery may get caught in moving parts. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• ALWAYS remove plug from the electrical outlet when adjusting, changing parts, or when working on the machine.
WARNING: PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE OPERATING
As with all machinery, there are certain hazards involved with their operation and use. Exercising respect and caution will considerably lessen the risk of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, personal injury to the operator or damage to property, may result.
Employers are advised to refer to the HSE publication “Guide for Employers”.
All hand held power tools vibrate to some extent, and this vibration is transmitted to the operator via the handle, or hand used to steady the tool. Vibration from about 2 to 1500 herz is potentially damaging and is most hazardous in the range from about 5 to 20 herz.
Operators who are regularly exposed to vibration may suffer from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), which includes ‘dead hand’, ‘dead finger’, and ‘white finger’. These are painful conditions and are widespread in industries where vibrating tools are used.
The health risk depends upon the vibration level and the length of time of exposure to it……in effect, a daily vibration dose.
Tools are tested using specialised equipment, to approximate the vibration level generated under normal, acceptable operating conditions for the tool in question. For example, a grinder used at 45° on mild steel plate, or a sander on softwood in a horizontal plane etc.
These tests produce a value‘a’, expressed in metres per second per second, which represents the average vibration level of all tests taken, in three axes where necessary, and a second figure ‘K’, which represents the uncertainty factor, i.e. a value in excess of ‘a’, to which the tool could vibrate under normal conditions. These values appear in the declaration on page 7.
HAND-ARM VIBRATION
You will note that a third value is given in the specification - the highest measured reading in a single plane. This is the maximum level of vibration measured during testing in one of the axes, and this should also be taken into account when making a risk assessment.
‘a’ values in excess of 2.5 m/s2 are considered hazardous when used for prolonged periods. A tool with a vibration value of 2.8 m/s2 may be used for up to 8 hours (cumulative) per day, whereas a tool with a value of 11.2 m/s2 may be used for ½ hour per day only.
The graph below shows the vibration value against the maximum time the respective tool may be used, per day.
The uncertainty factor should also be taken into account when assessing a risk. The two figures ‘a’ and ‘K’may be added together and the resulant value used to assess the risk.
It should be noted that if a tool is used under abnormal, or unusual conditions, then the vibration level could possibly increase significantly. Users must always take this into account and make their own risk assessment, using the graph as a reference.
Some tools with a high vibration value, such as impact wrenches, are generally used for a few seconds at a time, therefore the cumulative time may only be in the order of a few minutes per day. Nevertheless, the cumulative effect, particularly when added to that of other hand held power tools that may be used, must always be taken into account when the total daily dose rate is determined.

• ALWAYS keep your proper footing and balance at all times DO NOT over reach. For best footing wear rubber soled footwear. Keep floor clear of oil, scrap wood etc.
• ALWAYS use recommended accessories, the use of improper accessories could be hazardous.
• NEVER operate the machine when under the influence of drugs, alcohol or any medication.
• NEVER leave the machine running unattended. Turn power OFF. Do not leave the machine until it comes to a complete stop.
• NEVER force the machine, it will do a better and safer job at the rate for which it was designed.
• NEVER use power tools in damp or wet locations or expose them to rain. Keep your work area well illuminated. Do NOT use in explosive atmosphere (around paint, flammable liquids etc.). Avoid dangerous environments.
• ALWAYS guard against electric shock . Prevent body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces (pipes, radiators etc.) Safety can be further be improved by using a residual current device (RCD).
• ALWAYS store the tool out of the reach of children, DO NOT allow children to use the tool.
• ALWAYS wear ear protectors/defenders as the noise level of this machine can exceed 91dB (A).
• ALWAYS secure all work sufficiently using a vice or clamps. Do not use hands to secure work as this would be extremely dangerous.
• ALWAYS switch the machine OFF immediately the task is completed.
• ALWAYS check that all adjusters, chuck keys and wrenches have been removed BEFORE turning the tool ON.
• ALWAYS ensure safety devices are in place and are working correctly, if not DO NOT use the machine until rectified.
• DO NOT use the machine if the electrical cable, plug or motor is in poor condition.
• DO NOT allow the ventilation slots in the machine to become blocked.
• DO NOT touch the blade immediately after use, allow time to cool.
• ALWAYS keep the mains cable well away from the blade and ensure an adequate electrical supply is close at hand so that the operation is not restricted by the length of the cable.
• ALWAYS connect devices which are provided for dust extraction.
NOTE: Connecting such devices does not preclude the user from wearing a mask to prevent the inhalation of dust particles.
ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS FOR POWERTOOLS
GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS CONTINUED

NOTE: Always unplug the biscuit jointer before making any adjustments.
• The height can be set by unlocking both of the bevel adjustment levers and sliding the fence to the desired level with the aid of the scale. (refer to fig.1).
• Normally the height set corresponds to half the material’s thickness (biscuit grooves are cut in the centre of the piece). Note: a thicker piece may have more than one biscuit across it’s thickness i.e. one at 1/3rd and one at 2/3rds.
• If the bevel adjustment levers are in the way when working, pull the lever out and turn to a new position.
SETUP CONTINUED
MOUNTING THE DUST EXTRACTION
• For dust extraction connect either a vacuum to the dust extraction adaptor or the included dust bag.
• Regularly empty the dust bag to maintain dust extraction performance.
ADJUSTING THE CUTTING ANGLE
• The cutting angle can be set by unlocking both bevel adjustment levers and moving the fence to the required angle. (refer to fig.1).
OPERATION CONTINUED MAKING ‘T’ JOINTS
NOTE: Always unplug the biscuit jointer before making any adjustments.
A ‘T’ joint is used when the end of one piece is joined to the face of another, a typical application would be connecting the shelves of a bookcase to the vertical supports.
1. Position the vertical pieces on a level surface with the inside faces, uppermost. (refer to ‘A’ on…
