MAINTENANCE

1. All bearings are sealed ball bearings. They are lubricated for life and need no further maintenance.
2. Periodically clean all dust and wood chips from around AND UNDER the base and the rotary
table. Even though slots are provided to allow debris to pass through, some dust will accumulate.
3. The brushes are designed to give you several years of use. If they ever need replacement follow
the instructions below or return the tool to the nearest service center for repair. Service center
locations are packed with your tool.
Brushes
Inspect carbon brushes regularly:
1. TURN OFF TOOL AND DISCONNECT FROM POWER SUPPLY.
2. Remove the brush inspection cap.
3. Withdraw the brush assembly.
4. Keep brushes clean and sliding freely in their guides. Always replace a used brush in the same ori-
entation in the holder as it was prior to its removal. Carbon brushes have varying symbols stamped
into their sides, and if the brush is worn down to the line closest to the spring, they must be
replaced. (If either brush is worn out, replace both.) Use only identical B&D brushes. Use of the
correct grade of brush is essential for proper operation of electric brake. New brush assemblies are
available at B&D service centers.
5. The tool should be allowed to "run in" (run at no load) for 10 minutes before use to seat new
brushes. The electric brake may be erratic in operation until the brushes are properly seated (worn
in).
N N O O T T E E : : While "running in" DO NOT TIE, TAPE, OR OTHERWISE LOCK THE TRIGGER SWITCH ON.
HOLD BY HAND ONLY.
