ASSEMBLY/ADJUSTMENT SET-UP
WA R N I N G : Always remove battery from tool before any of the following operations.
AT TACHING AND REMOVING THE BLADE
NOTE: The first time the blade bolt is removed from saw without a blade installed, it
may be necessary to place the blade wrench on the bolt head and tap it sharply in the
counter clockwise direction.
Retract lower guard and assemble blade and clamp washers, as shown in Fig. 8. To prevent
blade rotation while tightening the blade clamping screw, raise the lower guard and place
the saw down on a piece of scrap wood as shown in Fig. 9A. The blade teeth will dig into the
scrap wood and prevent rotation while you tighten the blade clamping screw. Tighten the
blade clamping screw securely, using the wrench provided. Figure 9B illustrates an
alternative method of loosening and tightening the blade by inserting a screwdriver through
the hole in the blade to prevent it from moving. NOTE: The blade wrench is stored in the kerf
plate as shown in Fig. 8.
CUTTING DEPTH A D J U S T M E N T
Adjust depth of cut using depth adjustment lever. See (Figs. 5 & 6) for proper setting.
Tighten lever securely.
B E V E L ANGLE A D J U S T M E N T
Adjust bevel angle (Fig. 7) using bevel adjustment knob and bevel scale. Tighten knob
s e c u r e l y.
KERF PLATE A D J U S T M E N T
Adjust kerf plate (Fig. 8) to read zero when the bevel scale reads zero by loosening the kerf
plate screw and sliding the plate as necessary. Align mark on kerf plate with drawn pencil
line and advance blade into cut. The kerf plate has lines for zero bevel and 45 degree bevel
c u t t i n g .

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

WA R N I N G : To reduce the risk of serious personal injury, read, understand and follow all
important safety warnings and instructions prior to using tool.
G E N E R A L CUTS (I M P O R TA N T: Read safety warnings and instructions.
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK
With battery removed, follow all assembly, adjustment and set up instructions.
Make sure lower guard operates. Select the proper blade for the material to be cut.
• Measure and mark work for cutting.
• Support and secure work properly (See Safety Rules and Instructions).
• Use appropriate and required safety equipment (See Safety Rules).
• Secure and maintain work area (See Safety Rules).
• With battery inserted, make sure switch turns saw on and off.
WA R N I N G : It is important to support the work properly and to hold the saw firmly to prevent
loss of control which could cause personal injury. Fig. 3 illustrates typical hand support.
S W I T C H
Saw is equipped with a switch lock-off feature to prevent unintentional running. To operate
the tool, push down on the lock-off lever shown in Fig.9B from either side of the saw and
hold it down as you depress the trigger switch. After you have depressed the trigger and
the tool is running, release the lock-off lever. The tool will continue to run as long as the
trigger is depressed.
To turn the tool off, release the trigger switch. There is no provision for locking the tool on,
and the switch should never be locked on by any other means.
A U TO M ATIC ELECTRIC BRAKE
Your saw is equipped with an electric blade brake which stops the saw blade within 1-1/2
seconds of trigger release. This is automatic and requires no adjustment.
O c c a s i o n a l l y, under certain conditions, the brake will not function properly and won't stop the
saw in the 1-1/2 seconds as discussed above. If this condition occurs, turn the saw on and
o ff four or five times. If the problem still persists, have the tool serviced at a Black & Decker
service center or company authorized service facility.
POCKET CUTTING (SEE FIG. 10)
Pocket cutting is used to cut a hole in a piece of material without cutting from the side.
• Measure and mark work.
• Tilt saw forward and rest front of the shoe on material to be cut. Align so that cut will begin
at the back of the drawn rectangle.
• Using the retracting lever, retract blade guard to an upward position, with the blade just
clearing the material, start motor and gradually lower the saw into the material.
WA R N I N G : As blade starts cutting the material, release the retracting lever immediately.
• Never tie the blade guard in a raised position.
• When the shoe rests flat on the material being cut, complete the cut in forward direction.
• Allow the blade to come to a complete stop before lifting saw from material.
• When starting each new cut, repeat the above steps.
BLADE VIEWING WINDOW
Your saw features a blade viewing window through which you can look at the blade as it
cuts, therefore enhancing cutting accuracy. Follow layout lines easily without leaning over at
awkward angles just to see the blade. To clean the window, first remove the battery from the
saw and then, lift up the window so that you can reach beneath it to clean with a soft cloth. If
necessary a little mild soap and water may be used. When you release the window, its
internal spring will hold it tightly against the upper guard.

THE RBRC™ SEAL
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation)
Seal on the nickel-cadmium battery (or battery pack) indicates that the costs to
recycle the battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have already
been paid by Black & Decker. In some areas, it is illegal to place spent nickel-cadmium
batteries in the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program provides an
environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users, has established
programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate the collection of spent nickel-
cadmium batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by
returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to an authorized Black & Decker service center
or to your local retailer for recycling. You may also contact your local recycling center for
information on where to drop off the spent battery, or call 1 - 8 0 0 - 8 - B AT T E RY.
