Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there are certain
hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will considerably lessen the possibil-
ity of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, personal injury to the operator may result.
Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards, goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce
your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Alw
ays use common
sense and exercise caution in the workshop. If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure that feels
safer. REMEMBER: Your personal safety is your responsibility.

and/or used for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative to a particular applica-
tion, DO NOT use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should be performed on the product.
