    Comments:         Kirjes Produkter AB has had the motor independently
                      tested in cooperation by a qualified European testing
                      agency to meet and exceed European, Australian,
                      Canadian and US standards. Kirjes now understands the
                      motor was wrongly UL marked at the same time as the
                      European motors were CE marked. Read more about it on
                      our web-site Our intention as a company
                      is to supply the user with high quality tools which
                      meet established standards and that are absolutely not
                      harmful to the user. To prove it we have never had one
                      single incident caused by poor manufacture during the
                      5 years we have distributed the motor worldwide.

    What You
    Should Do:        Kirjes Produkter AB urges you to remove the UL mark
                      with a black marking pen. If you have any doubts
                      concerning the safety of the motor please contact us.
