sure switch is off when plugging in.
• EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When
using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current
your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage
resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows the correct
size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
Minimum Gage for Cord Sets
• OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is used outdoors, use only
extension cords intended for use outdoors and so marked.
• STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing. Use common sense. Do not operate
tool when you are tired.
• CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part
that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate
properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be
properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise
indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Have defective switches replaced
by authorized service center. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on and off.

Additional Safety Instructions for Grinders
• Always use guards and eye shields. Always wear safety glasses or other eye pro-
tection when operating this tool and keep the eye shields mounted in their prop-
er position on the wheel guard.
• Replace a cracked wheel immediately. Handle grinding wheels carefully to avoid
bumping or dropping. DO NOT use a grinding wheel that has been dropped.
Before using, inspect recommended accessory for cracks or flaws. If such a
crack or flaw is evident, discard the accessory. The accessory should also be
inspected whenever you think the tool may have been dropped.
• Before mounting a new wheel, be sure that it is marked with an RPM that is the
same as, or higher than, the no-load speed of the grinder as marked on the
nameplate. Keep tool rests and spark shields adjusted.
• Never start a grinder with anyone, including the operator, standing in line with
the wheel. After installing a replacement wheel, stand to one side and allow it to
revolve freely for about one minute.
• Do not grind on the sides of grinding wheels unless they are the special wheels
designed specifically for this purpose.
• Do not overtighten wheel nut.
• Use only clamp washer furnished with this grinder.
• Bolt bench grinder to a bench or pedestal to prevent movement.
SEE PAGE 5 FOR BENCH MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS.
• Use accessories only in the proper and intended manner.

Your B&D tool is powered by a B&D built motor. Be sure your power supply
agrees with the nameplate marking. Voltage decrease of more than 10% will
cause loss of power and overheating. All B&D tools are factory tested; if this
tool does not operate, check the power supply.
