NOTE: If you plan on using any tool for a project please make sure you are familiar with the tool and all of the dangers associated with it. If you are not familiar with a tool then you should ask someone who is to show you the proper way to use it.

I highly recommend using these resources for your safety and for the most efficient use of the tool.
