Sawing metal
Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time than
sawing wood.
Use a saw blade suitable for sawing metal.
When cutting thin sheet metal, clamp a piece of scrap
wood to the back surface of the workpiece and cut through
this sandwich.
Spread a film of oil along the intended line of cut.
Accessories
The performance of your tool depends on the accessory
used. Black & Decker and Piranha (not for Australia and
New Zealand) accessories are engineered to high quality
standards and are designed to enhance the performance of
your tool. By using these accessories, you will get the very
best from your tool.
This tool is suitable both for U-shank and T-shank saw
blades.

Maintenance

Your Black & Decker tool has been designed to operate over
a long period of time with a minimum of maintenance.
Continuous satisfactory operation depends upon proper tool
care and regular cleaning.
Regularly clean the ventilation slots with a clean,
dry paintbrush.
To clean the tool, use only mild soap and a damp cloth.
Never let any liquid get inside the tool and never immerse
any part of the tool into liquid.
Occasionally apply a drop of oil to the axle of the blade
support roller.
Mains plug replacement (U.K. & Ireland only)
If a new mains plug needs to be fitted:
Safely dispose of the old plug.
Connect the brown lead to the live terminal in the new plug.
Connect the blue lead to the neutral terminal.
Warning! No connection is to be made to the earth terminal.
Follow the fitting instructions supplied with good quality plugs.
Recommended fuse: 5 A.

Protecting the environment

Should you find one day that your tool needs
replacement, or if it is of no further use to you,
think of the protection of the environment.
Black & Decker repair agents will accept old
Black & Decker tools and ensure that they are
disposed of in an environmentally safe way.
Separate collection of used products and
packaging allows materials to be recycled and
used again. Re-use of recycled materials helps
prevent environmental pollution and reduces the
demand for raw materials.
Local regulations may provide for separate collection of
electrical products from the household, at municipal waste
sites or by the retailer when you purchase a new product.
Black & Decker provides a facility for the collection and
recycling of Black & Decker products once they have reached
the end of their working life. To take advantage of this
service please return your product to any authorised repair
agent who will collect them on our behalf.
You can check the location of your nearest authorised repair
agent by contacting your local Black & Decker office at the
address indicated in this manual. Alternatively, a list of
authorised Black & Decker repair agents and full details of
our after-sales service and contacts are available on the
Internet at: www.2helpU.com.
At the end of their useful life, discard batteries
with due care for our environment. Remove the
batteries as described above.
Place the batteries in suitable packaging to ensure that the
terminals cannot be short-circuited.
Take the batteries to a local recycling station.
