Before We Start
Engraving can create hazardous dust or debris, which can be harmful to your health if inhaled. So here we let you a few safety measures to consider when using your Customizer or any similar tool for engraving:
- Work in a well-ventilated area: This will help to reduce the amount of dust or debris in the air and keep you safe.
- Wear protective gear: A dust mask, eye protection, and gloves can go a long way in preventing injury or illness from dust or debris.
- Clean up thoroughly: After you've finished engraving, be sure to clean up any debris or dust that may have accumulated on your work surface and in the surrounding area.
- Dispose of waste properly: Avoid sweeping or vacuuming debris, as this can cause it to become airborne. Instead, use a damp cloth to wipe up the debris and dispose of it in a sealed container.
By taking these super simple precautions, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable engraving experience. Remember to always prioritize your safety when working with power tools, and if you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
