OK.....I looked for the CAUTION label that I took off my Greenie before I started my restore but for the life of me, can't locate it. I know I didn't throw it away. It will turn up but for now, who is able to provide me with an image of the label so that I can reproduce it? A pic would be GREAT. If no pic, how about the text, line by line, and a best guess on what font was used. I would think that SS would be able to tell me but I'd rather go through you guys first.

I know that this is not the label you seek; however, the CAUTION wording may be here.

Surely, there is a photo image available somewhere amongst this illustrious group of an earlier model label.

As a result of this thread, I have now photographed all of my labels. I am sorry to say, too late to get those that were on my Crafter's Station. They were in bad shape and like a fool I peeled them off. I thought I saved them but I can not find them.

It certainly does help.

CAUTION

Do not turn SPEED

DIAL unless motor is

Running Do Not Force

Handle See page 2 in

USER'S MANUAL


I am uncertain about the last sentence. The rest is identical to the label on my 510.

Thanks beeg. Thanks dusty. I really appreciate your help.

Dusty - When you said "I am uncertaina bout the last sentence" did you mean you were uncertain about "See page x in USER'S MANUAL" or did you just not include what you were uncertain about?? Also, did you actually read the label from the link beeg sent? I tried but couldn't.

I am uncertain about

"See page x in USER'S MANUAL" - I think the page number is 1?

The rest of the label I believe I could read. I took the image that beeg provided and enlarged it as far as I could with a photo editor.

Since the verbiage is identical to the label on my machine I am reasonably certain that this is the verbiage.

The page 'number' is gone on my goldie label, BUT it says 'OWNER'S MANUAL'.

Dusty's format and line grouping and capitalization are correct. Only the word USER'S is different from mine. The word CAUTION is slightly larger AND underlined.

The page in the manual with pertinent instructions(twice) is page 2(Inside front cover). Do not have time soon to post a pix, but if interested, I will later.:)
