connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
6. Electrical safety
Your tool is double insulated; therefore no earth wire is required. Always check that the main voltage corresponds
to the voltage on the rating plate.
Warning! If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, authorized Black & Decker
Service Center or an equally qualified person in order to avoid damage or injury. If the power cord is replaced by
an equally qualified person, but not authorized by Black & Decker, the warranty will not be valid.
7. Labels on tool
The label on your tool may include the following symbols:

Keep hands away from cutting area and blade. Keep your second hand on auxiliary handle, or motor
housing. If both hands are holding the saw, they cannot be cut by the blade.
• Keep your body positioned to either side of the saw blade, but not in line with the saw blade. KICKBACK
could case the saw to jump backwards. (See "Causes and Operator Prevention of Kickback.")
• Do not reach underneath the work. The guard can not protect you from the blade below the work.
• Check lower guard for proper closing before each use. Do not operate saw if lower guard does not move
freely and close instantly. Never clamp or tie the lower guard into the open position. If saw is accidentally
dropped, the lower guard may be bent. Raise the lower guard with the Retracting Lever and make sure it moves freely
and does not touch the blade or any other part, at all angles and depth of cut.
• Check the operation and condition of the lower guard spring. If the guard and the spring are not operating
properly, they must be serviced before use. Lower guard may operate sluggishly due to damaged parts, gummy
deposits, or a buildup of debris.
• Lower guard should be retracted manually only for special cuts such as "Pocket Cuts" and "Compound
