Intended use
Your Black & Decker Saw has been designed for sawing
wood, plastics and metal.
c.
This tool is intended for consumer use only.
General safety rules
Warning! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
injury. The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below
refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Work area
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark
areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres,
such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or
dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or
fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric
shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying,
pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or
entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord
suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power
tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
d.
e.
f.
g.
hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate
conditions will reduce personal injuries.
Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off
position before plugging in. Carrying power tools with your
finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a
rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
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.
If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices 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 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. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in
accordance with these instructions and in the manner
intended for the particular type of power tool, 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.

5. Battery tool use and care
a. Ensure the switch is in the off position before
inserting battery pack. Inserting the battery pack into
power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
b. Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of
battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another
battery pack.
c. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.
d. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails,
screws, or other small metal objects that can make a
connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the
battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
e. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs,
flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause
irritation or burns.
6. Service
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.
Specific safety instructions for Saws.
Hold the tool by the insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will
make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the
operator.
X
Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support
the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by
hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may lead
to loss of control.
X
Keep hands away from the cutting area. Never reach
underneath the material for any reason. Hold front of saw
by grasping the contoured gripping area. Do not insert
fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating blade
and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by gripping the
shoe.
X
Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may cause the
saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always use the
appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece material
and type of cut.
X
When cutting pipe or conduit ensure that they are free from
water, electrical wiring, etc.
X
Do not touch the workpiece or the blade immediately after
operating the tool. They can become very hot.
X
Do not use in rain or wet conditions.
4
Be aware of hidden hazards, before drilling into walls,
floors or ceilings, check for the location of wiring and pipes.
X
The blade will continue to move after releasing the switch.
Always switch the tool off and wait for the saw blade to
come to a complete standstill before putting the tool down.
Warning! Contact with or inhalation of dusts arising from
cutting applications may endanger the health of the operator
and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically
designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure that
persons within or entering the work area are also protected.

first time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an
80% charge. After several charge and discharge cycles, the
Hints for optimum use
Sawing laminates
Because the saw blade cuts on the upward stroke,
splintering may occur on the surface closest to the shoe
plate.
X
Use a fine-tooth saw blade.
X
Saw from the back surface of the workpiece.
X
To minimise splintering, clamp a piece of scrap wood or
hardboard to both sides of the workpiece and saw through
this sandwich.
Sawing Metal
X
Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time than
sawing wood.
X
Use a saw blade suitable for sawing metal.
5
When cutting thin sheet metal, clamp a piece of scrap
wood to the back surface of the workpiece and cut through
this sandwich.
When cutting metal piping, do not cut directly through the
pipe as you would saw a wooden dowel. Instead, cut
around the circumference of the pipe to avoid pinching the
blade. Only one section of the blade should be in contact
with the pipe.
Spread a film of oil along the intended line of cut.
