You — the stationary power tool user — hold the key to safety.
Read and follow these simple rules for best results and full benefits from your machine. Used properly, Wilton’s
machinery is among the best in design and safety. However, any machine used improperly can be rendered
inefficient and unsafe. It is absolutely mandatory that those who use our products be properly trained in how to
use them correctly. They should read and understand the Operators and Parts Manual as well as all labels
affixed to the machine. Failure in following all of these warnings can cause serious injuries.

Machinery general safety warnings

1. Always wear protective eye wear when operating
machinery. Eye wear shall be impact resistant,
protective safety glasses with side shields which
comply with ANSI Z87.1 specifications. Use of eye
wear which does not comply with ANSI Z87.1 specifi-
cations could result in severe injury from breakage of
eye protection.
2. Wear proper apparel; no loose clothing or jewelry
which can get caught in moving parts. Rubber soled
footwear is recommended for best footing.
3. Do not overreach. Failure to maintain proper
working position can cause you to fall into the
machine or cause your clothing to get caught —
pulling you into the machine.
4. Keep guards in place and in proper working
order. Do not operate the machine with guards
5. Avoid dangerous working environments. Do not
use stationary machine tools in wet or damp loca-
tions. Keep work areas clean and well lit.
6. Avoid accidental starts by being sure the start
switch is “OFF” before plugging in the machine.
7. Never leave the machine running while unattended.
8. Disconnect electrical power before servicing.
Whenever changing accessories or general mainte-
nance is done on the machine, electrical power to the
machine must be disconnected before work is done.

9. Maintain all machine tools with care. Follow all
maintenance instructions for lubricating and the
changing of accessories. No attempt shall be made
to modify or have makeshift repairs done to the
machine. This not only voids the warranty but also
renders the machine unsafe.
10. Machinery must be anchored to the floor.
11. Secure work. Use clamps or a vise to hold work,
when practical. It is safer than using your hands and
it frees both hands to operate the machine.

manufacturers instructions pertaining to them.
17. Keep hands in sight and clear of all moving parts
and cutting surfaces.

the work area. Make workshop completely safe by
using padlocks, master switches, or by removing
starter keys.

limitations, and potential hazards.
