USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
Make sure the extension cord is in good condition before using. Always use the proper size
extension cords with the tool – that is, proper wire size for various lengths of cord and heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw. Use of an undersized cord will cause a drop in
line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. For proper size cords see chart
below.

MOTOR
Be sure your power supply agrees with nameplate marking. 120 Volts AC only means your
tool will operate on standard 60 Hz household power. Do not operate AC tools on DC. A
rating of 120 volts AC/DC means that you tool will operate on standard 60 Hz AC or DC
power. This information is printed on the nameplate. Lower voltage will cause loss of power
and can result in over-heating. All Black & Decker tools are factory-tested; if this tool does
not operate, check the power supply.

Assembly/Adjustment Set-up
INSTALLING BLADES
WARNING: Before attempting any of the following operations, make sure that the tool is
switched off and unplugged and that the saw blade has stopped. Used saw blades can be
hot.
Using a flat blade screwdriver, loosen (do not remove) the two screws "A" in Figure B.
Ensure the blade teeth are facing forward and insert the saw blade shank fully into the blade
clamp. Slightly tighten screws alternately to position the blade, then fully tighten screws. To
release, turn both screws one turn counterclockwise.
Note: To improve cutting performance, ensure back of blade is touching blade support roller.
See "Roller Support Guide"for instructions on how to change position of blade support roller.
BLADE SUPPORT ROLLER
TURN OFF AND UNPLUG TOOL.
The blade support roller on your jigsaw improves its performance when cutting tough
materials by adding support to the blade. This support should be adjusted so that the roller
touches the back of the blade when cutting. Ensure the blade is aligned with the groove in
the roller. Adjust the support roller by loosening the screw on the bottom of the shoe (Fig.B)
and moving the shoe so that the roller touches the back edge of the blade. Retighten screw.
Lubricating the guide roller from time to time with a drop of oil will extend the life of the roller.
NOTE: Roller support guide not applicable when shoe is beveled to 45 degrees.

ON/OFF SWITCH
LOCK ON BUTTON
BEFORE PLUGGING YOUR JIGSAW IN, ENSURE THAT THE TRIGGER SWITCH IS IN
THE OFF POSITION.
To turn the saw on, squeeze the trigger switch, as shown in Figure C. To turn the tool off,
release the trigger switch. The tool can be locked on for continuous operation by fully
squeezing and holding the trigger switch while you depress the lock-on button shown in
Fig. C. With the lock-on button depressed, release the trigger switch and the tool will
continue to run. To release from lock position, squeeze and release the trigger. Always
TRIGGER SWITCH
disengage the lock before disconnecting from the power supply.
BEVEL ADJUSTMENT
TURN OFF AND UNPLUG TOOL.
To adjust the bevel angle, loosen the screw (approximately 3 full turns) on the bottom of the
shoe, as shown in Figure B. Lift the shoe slightly and pull backward, then set the shoe at
45° and retighten screw. To reset the shoe for a square cut, loosen the screw and move the
shoe until it is approximately 90° to the blade. Adjust the blade support roller to the blade
and retighten the screw.
GENERAL CUTTING
Be sure board is firmly secured. Hold jigsaw by the handle and operate switch to turn the
BLADE STORAGE
unit on. Don't attempt to turn on the unit when blade is against material to be cut. This could
stall the motor. Place front of shoe on material to be cut and hold jigsaw shoe down firmly
against the work surface while cutting. Don't force the tool; let the blade cut at its own speed.
Whenever possible, clamp or support work close to the line of cut; when the cut is
completed, shut off power and lay the saw aside before loosening the work.
AUTOMATIC DUST BLOWER
To aid visibility when cutting, your jigsaw is equipped with an automatic dust blower (Fig. C)
which will keep the work area clear of dust as you saw.
BLADE STORAGE
A convenient blade storage compartment (Fig. D) is provided at the rear of the saw.
METAL & PLASTIC CUTTING
In cutting thin gauge sheet metals, it is best to clamp wood or plywood to the bottom of the
metal sheet; this will insure a clean cut without the danger of vibration or tearing of metal.
Use a fine-tooth blade for ferrous metals (for those that have an iron content); and use a
coarser blade for nonferrous metals (those that do not have an iron content).
Cutting thin metal will take longer than cutting relatively thick wood so do not be tempted to
speed up the process by forcing the saw. Spread a thin film of cutting lubricant along the
cutting line (any light weight oil).
When cutting laminated plastic, place the finished side down and use a fine tooth hollow
ground blade.
POCKET CUTTING
Measure the surface to be cut and mark clearly with a pencil. Next tip the saw forward
until the front edge of the shoe sits firmly on the work surface, but with the blade well
clear of it Figure E.
Turn the tool on and allow it to attain maximum speed by fully depressing the trigger
switch.
Grip the handle firmly and slowly lower the back edge of tool until the blade cuts
smoothly into material. Do not move the jigsaw forward along the cut line until the saw
blade has completely entered the material and shoe comes to rest flat on its surface.
RIP & CIRCLE CUTTING
Ripping and circle cutting without a pencil line are easily done with the rip fence and circle
guide (available at extra cost).
Using the screw supplied with the accessory guide, position as shown in Figure F and thread
the screw into the shoe to clamp the fence securely.
When circle cutting, adjust rip fence so that distance from blade to hole in cross bar is at the
desired radius and tighten screw (use hole which lines up best with saw blade). Place saw
so that hole in cross bar is over center of circle to be cut (make pocket cut, drill hole for blade
or cut inward from edge of material to get blade into position). When saw is properly
positioned, drive a small nail through hole in cross bar. Using rip fence as a pivot arm, begin
cutting circle. For circle cutting, the cross bar should be up, as shown in Figure F.
When ripping, slide the rip fence under the screw from either side of the saw. Set the cross
bar at desired distance from blade and tighten screw. For ripping, the cross bar should be
down and against the straight edge of the workpiece.

MAINTENANCE

Use only mild soap and damp cloth to clean the tool. Never let any liquid get inside the tool;
never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
IMPORTANT: To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
adjustment should be performed by authorized service centers or other qualified service
