ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES FOR FOR THE ROUTER/SHAPER WARNING: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY 1. DO NOT OPERATE THIS MACHINE UNTIL it is assembled and installed according to the instructions. 2. OBTAIN ADVICE from your supervisor, instructor, or another qualified person if you are not familiar with the operation of this machine. 3. FOLLOW ALL WIRING CODES and recommended electrical connections. 4.
POWER CONNECTIONS A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug.
EXTENSION CORDS Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the machine. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. D, shows the correct gauge to use depending on the cord length.
