Electrical Connection

Be sure your power supply agrees with the nameplate marking.
120 volts, AC/DC means that your saw will operate on alternating
or direct current. A voltage decrease of 10 percent or more will-
cause a loss of power and overheating. All B&D tools are factory
tested. If this tool does not operate, check the power supply.
Grounding
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a
path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of
electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having
an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances. Do not modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet like the
one illustrated in sketch A. The tool has a grounding plug that
looks like the plug illustrated in sketch A. A temporary adapter,
which looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C, may
be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in
2
ALWAYS ADJUST FENCE PROPERLY
BEFORE USE. CLAMP SMALL PIECES
BEFORE CUTTING. SEE MANUAL.
