Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass
which should be drilled dry. The cutting lubricants that work best are sulfurized cutting
oil or lard oil.
Use carbide tipped masonry bits. Refer to Drilling section. Keep even force on the drill
but not so much that you crack the brittle material. A smooth, even flow of dust indicates
the proper drilling rate.


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.
An occasional application of a household oil to the Quick Connect
prevent rust.
IMPORTANT: To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
adjustment (other than those listed in this manual) should be performed by authorized
service centers or other qualified service organizations, always using identical
replacement parts.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation)
Seal on the nickel-cadmium battery (or battery pack) indicates that the
costs to recycle the battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life
have already been paid by Black & Decker. In some areas, it is illegal to
place spent nickel-cadmium batteries in the trash or municipal solid
waste stream and the RBRC program provides an environmentally
conscious alternative.
RBRC in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users, has established
programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate the collection of spent nickel-
cadmium batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by
returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to an authorized Black & Decker service
center or to your local retailer for recycling. You may also contact your local recycling
center for information on where to drop off the spent battery, or call 1-800-8-BATTERY.
