Hello,

Thank you for your question.

I am happy to assist you.the use of power tools is not specifically restricted.

However the statute states that the person must be 18 to be employed
or permitted to work in any occupation that is dangerous with the exception that
minors age fourteen and over may operate power lawn mowing equipment:

Additionally, the statute states that no minor under sixteen years of age shall be employed or permitted to work in, about, or in connection with, any manufacturing or mechanical occupation or process; nor on scaffolding; nor in heavy work in the building trades;

Here is the link to the Pennsylvania Minor Labor Law: http://www.dli.state.pa.us/landi/lib/landi/laws-regulations%5Cllc%5Ca-177.pdf

I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.

Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.

Thank you,
FLANDNYLAWYER

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
