• A hammer that has a chip cavity will more easily chip again if struck adjacent the chip cavity. Also, a hammer face with significant deformation such as a “dent” may chip if struck in the damaged area. A ball peen hammer is one of the most widely used - and often abused - mechanic’s tool. To protect yourself, and others, from injury:
• WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES, user and bystanders
• DO NOT USE A HAMMER THAT IS ALREADY CHIPPED OR DAMAGED
A hammer that has a chip cavity will more easily chip again if struck adjacent the chip cavity. Also, a hammer face with significant deformation such as a “dent” may chip if struck in the damaged area.
• Cordless tools have d.c. motors and switch contacts that can create sparks during normal operation. Sparks can ignite flammable vapors such as gasoline fumes. These fumes can enter the tool through cooling vents. It is important to use caution in areas where gasoline or other flammable vapors may be present, such as near the fuel tank, under the hood fuel rails or anywhere near a fuel system.
Do not use any cordless tool where flammable vapors are suspected in order to avoid combustion and possible serious injury.
