    How to Replace Shaft and Sheath


    Important Safety Instructions from FOREDOM®

  • Always wear proper eye and face protection—
    Always wear safety glasses and or a face shield when using rotary power tools. Regular eyeglasses do not provide sufficient protection.
  • Never wear loose clothing or jewelry and tie back long hair—
    Ties, scarves, jewelry and long hair pose a hazard when using rotary power tools.
  • Never use accessories at speeds above the maximum RPM—
    Accessories used at faster than the recommended speed can become damaged, and hazardous to you and others in the work area. Always check the speed rating.
  • Never use a damaged accessory—
    If an accessory appears to be bent, loose, vibrating or out of balance do not continue to use it. Use a clean sharp accessory that is recommended for the material you are working on. Let the speed of the tool do the work. Do not force the tool or use excessive side pressure.
  • Always use dust collection, respirator, or face mask to prevent inhalation of dust particles from workpiece or abrasives.
