e) Always use an undamaged clamping ﬂange
of the correct size and shape for the selected
grinding disc. Suitable ﬂanges support the
grinding disc and reduce the risk of a disc
f) Do not use worn grinding discs from larger
power tools. Grinding discs for larger power
tools are not designed for the higher rotational
speeds of smaller power tools and can break.
g) The external diameter and thickness of the
accessory tool used must comply with the
dimensions of your power tool. Incorrectly
dimensioned accessory tools cannot be suﬃ-
ciently shielded or controlled.
h) Grinding discs and ﬂanges must ﬁt precisely
onto the grinding spindle of your power tool.
Accessory tools which do not ﬁt precisely on the
grinding spindle of the power tool will rotate
unevenly, vibrate severely and can lead to a
loss of control.
i) Do not use damaged grinding discs. Check
the grinding discs before each use for chips
and cracks. If the power tool or grinding disc
is dropped, check to see if it either are
damaged, or use an undamaged grinding
disc. After checking and inserting the
grinding disc, ensure that you and any other
people in the vicinity remain outside of the
range of the rotating grinding disc and allow
the tool to rotate at maximum speed for one
minute. Damaged grinding discs usually break
during this test period.
j) Wear personal protective equipment.
Depending on the application, ensure that
you use full face protection, eye protection or
goggles. If required, use a dust mask, ear
muﬀs, protective gloves or a special apron to
protect you from grindings and material
particles. Protect your eyes from ﬂying debris
that may be created during certain applica-
tions. Dust or ﬁlter masks must be used to ﬁlter
any dust created by the application. If you are
exposed to loud noise for any length of time,
you can suﬀer a hearing loss.

k) Ensure that other people remain at a safe
distance to your workspace. Anyone who
enters the workspace must wear personal
protective equipment. Fragments of the work-
piece or broken accessory tools can ﬂy oﬀ and
cause injury – even outside the immediate
l) Hold the power tool only by the insulated
handles while you are carrying out work
during which the accessory tool may come
into contact with concealed power cables or
the tool's own power cord. Contact with a live
cable can also make metal parts of the appli-
ance live and could result in an electric shock.
m) Keep the power cord away from any rotating
accessories. If you lose control of the appli-
ance, the cord may get cut or caught and your
hand or arm could get caught in the rotating
n) Never put the power tool down until the
accessory tool has come to a complete stand-
still. The rotating accessory tool could come
into contact with the surface and cause you to
lose control of the power tool.
o) Do not leave the power tool running whilst
carrying it. Accidental contact between your
clothing and the rotating accessory tool could
cause your clothing to get caught and the
accessory tool to penetrate a part of your body.
p) Clean the ventilation slits of your power tool
regularly. The engine fan draws dust into the
housing and a strong accumulation of metal
dust can cause electrical hazards.
q) Do not use the power tool in the vicinity of
ﬂammable materials. Sparks can ignite such
r) Do not use any accessory tools which require
liquid coolant. The use of water or other liquid
coolants may lead to an electric shock.
