To install your new AEC Air Wand, simply follow the installation steps in order. You will find that after a simple installation procedure, your new Air Wand will make a lot of your most distasteful jobs easy and quick to do.

1. Read all the instructions before trying to implement your new Air Wand.
2. Do not leave the Air Wand operating and un-attended.
3. Operation of the Air Wand is not intended for persons under 16 years of age.
4. Do not rub the Air Wand on surfaces. Rubbing embeds foreign matter particles into the surface of the felt. Damage to the worked-on surface can result if it is rubbed, causing scratches.
5. Store in a dry, safe area either by hanging from a hook, or by storing in a flat, protected area. Care must be given to ensure that the felt is not resting on anything that may cause the felt to curl, rip or otherwise suffer damage.
