WORK SAFELY!
Always use Personal
Protective Equipment
when using rotary tools
  • Eye Protection
  • Hearing Protection  
  • Respiratory Protection
SAFE BUR USE:  Because burs are used most-often in hand-held rotary tools, die
grinders or handpieces, good operator control is essential in order to avoid unsafe use
or breakage.  BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE ROTARY TOOL MANUFACTURER'S
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROPER, SAFE USE.  Failure to heed all safety rules, instructions
and warnings can result in serious bodily injury.

Problems occur when rotating burs are positioned to operate in tightly-confined areas
such as corners, pockets or within tight holes or grooves.  Out-of-control jamming,
wedging or wobbling of the bur can occur, possibly marring the workpiece, breaking
the bur and causing injury.  Make sure that the bur is properly seated in the handpiece
collet or chuck and tightened securely.  Misuse or abusive use of tools will void any
warranties.

WARNING:  Make sure to wear the appropriate personal protective safety equipment
for protection from injury.  Tools may shatter--wear eye protection and other
appropriate safety items as required.  And remember, bur cutting edges are sharp!  
Keep hands and fingers clear of rotating cutter surfaces during use.  Follow the
SAFETY LEGEND rules and warnings below:
