Safety Warnings Specific For Sanding Operations; Causes And Operator Prevention Of Kickback - Black & Decker BDPO700-B1 Manual

Hide thumbs


n) Regularly clean the power tool's air vents. The motor's
fan will draw the dust inside the housing and excessive
accumulation of powdered metal may cause electrical
o) Do not operate the power tool near flammable
materials. Sparks could ignite these materials.
p) Do not use accessories that require liquid coolants.
Using water or other liquid coolants may result in
electrocution or shock.
NOTE The above warning does not apply for power tools
specifically designed for use with a liquid system.
Causes and Operator Prevention
of Kickback
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched or snagged
rotating wheel, backing pad, brush or any other accessory.
Pinching or snagging causes rapid stalling of the rotating
accessory which in turn causes the uncontrolled power tool to
be forced in the direction opposite of the accessory's rotation
at the point of the binding.
For example, if an abrasive wheel is snagged or pinched by
the workpiece, the edge of the wheel that is entering into the
pinch point can dig into the surface of the material causing
the wheel to climb out or kick out. The wheel may either jump
toward or away from the operator, depending on direction
of the wheel's movement at the point of pinching. Abrasive
wheels may also break under these conditions.
Kickback is the result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating
procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking proper
precautions as given below:
a) Maintain a firm grip on the power tool and position
your body and arm to allow you to resist kickback
forces. Always use auxiliary handle, if provided, for
maximum control over kickback or torque reaction
during start-up. The operator can control torque reaction
or kickback forces, if proper precautions are taken.
b) Never place your hand near the rotating accessory.
Accessory may kickback over your hand.
c) Do not position your body in the area where power
tool will move if kickback occurs. Kickback will propel
the tool in direction opposite to the wheel's movement at
the point of snagging.
d) Use special care when working corners, sharp edges
etc. Avoid bouncing and snagging the accessory.
Corners, sharp edges or bouncing have a tendency to
snag the rotating accessory and cause loss of control or
e) Do not attach a saw chain woodcarving blade or
toothed saw blade. Such blades create frequent kickback
and loss of control.
Safety Warnings Specific for Sanding
Do not use excessively oversized sanding disc paper.
Follow manufacturer's recommendations, when
selecting sanding paper. Larger sanding paper
extending beyond the sanding pad presents a laceration
hazard and may cause snagging, earing of the disc or
Labels on your tool
They may include the following symbols.
..........Alternating current
..........No load speed
..........Class II Construction
..........Earthing terminal
..........Safety alert symbol

Save these instructions!
To reduce the risk of injury, the user must
read the instruction manual.
Always wear eye protection.
Double Insulation
The tool is double insulated. Double insulation
means that all the external metal parts are
electrically insulated from the mains power supply.
This is done by placing insulated barriers between
the electrical and mechanical components so as to
making unnecessary for the tool to be earthed.
NOTE: Double insulation does not take the place of normal
safety precautions when operating this tool. The insulation
system is for added protection against injury resulting from a
possible electrical insulation failure within the tool.
Electrical Safety
The electric motor has been designed for one voltage only.
Always check that the power supply corresponds to the volt-
age on the rating plate.
