The use on any material less than 25mm thick will progressively reduce the magnetic performance. If possible, substitute material should be positioned under the magnet and work piece to equate to a suitable material thickness. If this is not possible, an alternative secure method of restraining the machine MUST be used.

Vibration and Noise

The declared vibration total value(s) and the declared noise emission value(s) have been measured in accordance with a standard test method and maybe used for comparing one tool with another;

The declared vibration total value(s) and declared noise emission values(s) may also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.

The vibration and noise emissions during actual use of the power tool can differ from the declared total value depending on the ways in which the tool is used and especially what kind of workpiece is being processed

The need to identify safety measures to protect the operator that are based on an estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use (taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time).

Ear and eye defenders must be worn when operating this machine. Wear gloves to protect hands when operating the machine.

These tools are UK designed and manufactured with globally sourced components and conform to the requirements of EEC Document HD.400.1 and BS.2769/84

Suitable only for a single phase 50-60Hz A.C. power supply

DO NOT USE ON D.C. SUPPLY

Do not use your magnetic drill on the same structure when arc welding is in progress.
D.C. current will earth back through the magnet and cause irreparable damage.

WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED!
