rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool
in unexpected situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g. If a wet cut system is provided with the unit, ensure it is connected and properly used. Proper use of this
system can reduce dust-related hazards. AVAILABLE ONLY FOR TC1200
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, 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:
Read Instructions Manual

ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR TILE CUTTERS
• Do not reach underneath the work. The guard can not protect you from the blade below the work.
• NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands or across your leg. It is important to support the work properly to
minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
• Always use blades with correct size (20mm) and shape (round) arbor holes. Blades that do not match
the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentrically, causing loss of control.
• Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers or bolts. The blade washers and bolts were specially
designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety of operation.
• Don't unplug if plug or receptacle is wet. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies power to the tool.
Then unplug and examine for presence of water in the receptacle.
