Adaptors which should be grounded to outlet are
supplied with each electric tool so units may fit old style
The 115 Volt plug will fit present outlets with the
exception of ground prong,
FOR YOUR PROTECTION AN ELECTRIC TOOL SHOULD ALWAYS BE GROUNDED
IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK. DO NOT USE
IN WET PLACES.
The green color conductor is the ground wire and is attached to the frame inside the tool,
and extends through the side of the adaptor plug on models prior to 1955. To ground the tool,
this "green" ground wire must be connected to a pertinent ground such as a grounded supply
system, a water pipe or conduct which is properly grounded.
Brushes should be inspected frequency, kept free from dirt and dust, and should always
operate freely in their guides without sticking and with proper spring tension. Worn brushes
should be immediately replaced. Do not allow the brushes co wear shorter than 1/4 inch, as
they may turn in the brash holder and ruin the commutator.
Always inspect the commutator when installing new brushes and be sure to use the correct
brush for each tool.
Universal type motors will operate only
on the voltage for which they are
designed, as shown on the name plate.
Do not overload electric tools. A margin

capacity, and to take care of accidental or

Motors are air-cooled.

Avoid turning the tool on or off under load,
through the ventilation slots on the brush
as this ray cause serious damage to the
end of the motor, with the tool running.
Do not use air with excessive moisture.
Under no conditions, close air vents.
All closed type grease-sealed ball bearings are "permanently lubricated" and have sufficient lubricant packed in them
at the factory to last the life of the bearing. Never wash a sealed bearing in solvent.
All tools are properly lubricated before leaving the factory, and under normal regular use this lubrication will last until
the tool requires servicing, at which time the old grease must be washed from gear case, gears and open bearings with
gasoline or kerosene before refilling with fresh lubricant.
Never fill gear case more than one-half full; too much grease is as bad as too little. Grease expands when warm, and
the excess will be forced through the bearings into the motor, damaging the windings and clogging the ventilation slots.
Use only the quantity and type specified.
Tools used constantly on production or other heavy-duty jobs will require periodic inspection and relubrication at
intervals, depending on the use of the tool.
Long life depends upon good lubrication. Tools out of service for long periods should be cleaned and lubricated before
being put to work.
