• Disconnect the plug from the power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
• Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and
do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool
or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power
tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
• Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
• Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in
accordance with these instructions and in the manner
intended for the particular type of power tool, taking
into account the working conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the power tool for operations
different from intended could result in a hazardous
• Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
personnel using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
Additional safety rules for laser lights
The laser light/laser radiation used in the GMC REDEYE®
system is Class 2 with maximum 1mW and 400nm –
700nm wavelengths. These lasers do not normally present
an optical hazard, although staring at the beam may
cause flash blindness.
WARNING. Do not stare directly at the laser beam.
A hazard may exist if you deliberately stare into the
beam. Please observe all safety rules as follows:
• The laser shall be used and maintained in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Never aim the beam at any person or an object other
than the work piece.
• The laser beam shall not be deliberately aimed at
personnel and shall be prevented from being directed
towards the eye of a person for longer than 0.25s.
• Always ensure the laser beam is aimed at a sturdy work
piece without reflective surfaces, i.e. wood or rough
coated surfaces are acceptable. Bright shiny reflective
sheet steel or the like is not suitable for laser use as
the reflective surface could direct the beam back at the
• Do not change the laser light assembly with a different
type. Repairs must only be carried out by the laser
