Working Safely
Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines carefully when using any power tools, and take particular care when loading batteries or gas cells. Wear eye protection and work in a well-ventilated area. Keep all power tools locked away from children. Some tools will require regular servicing to work efficiently, but contact your supplier to do this rather than attempting it yourself.
