Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To
reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out
Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling,
and other construction activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas
with soap and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may
promote absorption of harmful chemicals.

Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Double ins ulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other.) This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply
Avoid body contact with grounded s urfaces s uch as pipes , radiators , ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.
Don’t expos e power tools to rain or wet conditions . Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tools or pull the plug from an

damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.
When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord marked "W-A"
or "W". These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating. The following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the
gauge number, the heavier the cord

Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your
hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothing, jewelry, or long hair
can be caught in moving parts. Air vents cover moving parts and should be avoided.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off before plugging in. Carrying tools with
your finger on the switch or plugging in tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or key that is
left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.

Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times . Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
Be sure your power supply agrees with nameplate marking. 120 Volts AC only means your
tool will operate on standard 60 Hz household power. Do not operateAC tools on DC.Arating
of 120 volts AC/DC means that you tool will operate on standard 60 Hz AC or DC power. This
information is printed on the nameplate. Lower voltage will cause loss of power and can
result in over-heating. All Black & Decker tools are factory-tested; if this tool does not operate,
check the power supply.
TOOL USE AND CARE
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable
platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
ASSEMBLY/ADJ USTMENT SET-UP
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with
the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
