Do not wear loose clothing, short pants, sandals etc. And ensure that long hair is tied up above shoulder length. Never weld in the area being drilled as a short can cause the machine to stop and the magnet will switch off. Careless or improper use of this equipment may result in serious or fatal injury. Do not operate this equipment when tired, ill or under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication. Never allow an inexperienced person operate this equipment. Never operate the equipment in damp, or water logged area. Keep all carrying handles and levers free from oil make sure the drill magnetic base is clear of chips and debris and is securely attached to a clean surface. Uneven surfaces or large debris buildup prevents the magnet from obtaining optimal holding power, which can cause the drill to shift or lift during operation if it does shift or lift during the cut, it is very possible the cutter will break. Hougen mag drills have a built-in safety circuit that stops the motor when the drill lifts from the material. Always use a safety chain especially in horizontal & overhead positions. Your mag drill should always be used with a safety strap or chain especially in horizontal or upside down positions. Not only for safety of the operator but protecting your investment.
