SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Warning! When using electric tools, the following
basic safety precautions should always be taken to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal
injury. Read all these instructions before attempting to
operate the product and save this booklet.
For safe operation:
• Keep the work area clean. Cluttered areas and
benches invite injuries.
• Consider the work area environment. Do not expose
the power tool to rain and do not use in damp or wet
locations. Keep the work area well lit. Do not use
the power tool where there is a risk to cause fire
or explosion.
• Guard against electric shock. Avoid body contact,
where possible, with earthed or grounded surfaces
(e.g. pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators).
• Keep children away. Do not let visitors touch the
tool or extension cord. All visitors should be kept
away from the work area.
• Store idle tools. When not in use, tools should be
stored in a dry, high or locked place, out of reach
of children.
• Do not force the tool. It will do the job better and
more safely at the rate for which it was intended.
• Use the right tool. Do not force small tools or
attachments to do the job of a heavy duty tool.
Do not use the tool for purposes not intended; for
example, do not use a circular saw to cut tree
limbs or logs.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery as they can be caught in moving parts.
Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are
recommended when working outdoors. Wear
protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• Use safety glasses. Use a face or dust mask as well,
if the operation is dusty or if the tool is being used in
enclosed spaces.
• Connecting dust extraction equipment. If devices
are provided for the connection of dust extraction
and collection ensure these are connected and
properly used, especially in confined areas.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never carry the tool by its
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the socket. Keep
the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
• Secure the work. Use clamps or a vice to hold the
work. It is safer than using a hand and it frees both
hands to operate the tool.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times.
• Maintain the tool with care. Keep a cutting tool
sharp and clean for better and safer performance.
Follow the instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories. Inspect the tools cord periodically and,
if damaged, have repaired by an authorised service
facility. Inspect the extension cord periodically and
replace if damaged. Keep the handles dry, clean and
free from oil and grease.
• Disconnect the tool when not in use, before
servicing and when changing accessories such as
blades, bits and cutters.
• Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form the
habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from the tool and replaced in
the storage area before switching on.
• Avoid unintentional starting. Do not carry a
plugged-in tool with a finger on the switch.
Ensure the switch is off when plugging in.
• Use an outdoor extension cord. When a tool is used
outdoors, only use an extension cord intended for
outdoor use and so marked.
• Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, use common
sense and do not operate the tool when tired.
• Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool,
a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine whether it will
operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, free running of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting and any
other conditions that may affect its operation.
A guard or other part that is damaged should be
properly repaired or replaced by an authorised
service centre unless otherwise indicated in the
product booklet. Have defective switches replaced
by an authorised service agent. Do not use the tool if
the switch does not turn it on and off.
• Warning! The use of any accessory or attachment,
other than recommended in the product booklet,
may present a risk of personal injury.
• Have the tool repaired by a qualified person. The
electrical tool is in accordance with the relevant
safety requirements. Repairs should only be carried
out by qualified persons using original spare parts,
otherwise, this may result in considerable danger to
the user.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CIRCULAR SAWS
Plugging into the mains, switching on and off
• Always ensure that the power tool is switched off
before plugging into the mains.
4
CD600 Circ saw UK/Auz/NZ

15/3/00, 5:20 pm
ENGLISH
• Make sure that you remove the blade-changing
spanner from the saw blade locking screw before
you switch on the circular saw.
• Do not switch off the power tool unless the saw
blade is running freely.
When sawing
• Only hold your saw by the handles provided. Do not
hold your saw in a position that could result in a
poor grip and control of the saw.
• Always ensure that there is sufficient clearance
below the material being cut and the bench or
support to allow the safety guard to rotate fully.
• All nails and metal objects must be removed from
the workpiece before you commence sawing.
• Do not attempt to saw extremely small workpieces.
• After switching off, never attempt to stop the
saw blade by pressing against the side of the blade.
• Never put the circular saw down on a table or work
bench unless you have previously switched off.
• Never operate the circular saw with the saw blade
turned upwards or to the side.
Operational protection devices
• Ensure that all devices screening the saw blade are
in perfect working order.
• Never jam the saw guard.
• Free a jammed saw guard immediately and do not
use the saw if the guard is jammed.
• Only use the guard retracting lever provided should
the blade guard need to be moved when
commencing a cut.
• The riving knife must not be removed (where fitted).
• The riving knife should be correctly set (where fitted).
Checking and changing the saw blade
• Disconnnect the saw from the mains supply before
checking or changing the blade.
• Only saw blades conforming to the specifications
contained in these operating instructions may
be used.
• Saw blades whose main part is thicker or whose pitch
is smaller than the riving knife’s thickness should not
be used (only on saws fitted with a riving knife).
• Saw blades made of high alloy, high speed steel
(HSS steel) should not be used.
• Only sharp saw blades in perfect working condition
should be used; cracked or bent saw blades should
be discarded and replaced at once.
• Ensure that the saw blade is securely fixed and
turns in the correct direction.
• Metal cutting and stone cutting discs should not be
used with this saw.
Save these instructions!
DOUBLE INSULATION
The tool is double insulated. This means that all
the external metal parts are electrically insulated
from the mains power supply. This is done by
placing insulation barriers between the
electrical and mechanical components making it
unnecessary for the tool to be earthed.
Note: Double insulation does not take the place
of normal safety precautions when operating the
tool. The insulation system is for added protection
against injury resulting from a possible electrical
insulation failure within the tool.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Be sure the supply is the same as the voltage given on
the rating plate. The tool is fitted with a two-core cable
and plug.
MAINS PLUG REPLACEMENT (UK ONLY)
Should the mains plug need replacing and you are
competent to do this, proceed as instructed below.
If you are in doubt, contact a Black & Decker service
agent or a qualified electrician.
• Disconnect the plug from the power supply.
• Cut off the plug and dispose of safely. A plug with
bared copper conductors is very dangerous if
engaged in a live socket outlet.
• Only fit BS1363A approved plugs fitted with the
correctly rated fuse.
Note: Fuses do not give personal protection against
electric shock.
• The cable wire colours, or a letter, will be marked at
the connection point of most good quality plugs. Attach
the wires to their respective points in the plug (see
diagram). Brown is L (live) and blue is N (neutral).

missing or damaged do not use the plug.
For replacement or detachable fuse covers,
contact a Black & Decker service agent.
Warning! Never connect live or neutral wires to the
earth pin marked E or
.
REPLACEMENT OF THE SUPPLY CORD
(AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ONLY)
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
the manufacturer or its service agent or similarly
qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
EXTENSION CABLES
Up to 30m (100ft) of 3-core extension cable can be used
without undue loss of power. Note: An extension cable
should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of
an improper extension cable could result in a risk of
fire and electric shock. If an extension cable must be
used, make sure it is properly wired, contains the
correct rated fuse as recommended in its literature and
is in good electrical condition.
UNWANTED TOOLS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Should you find one day that the tool needs
replacement or is of no further use, think of the
protection of the environment. Black & Decker
service agents will accept old tools and will
dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.

SAFETY WARNING
Your saw is designed for use with wood cutting blades
only. Do not use stone cutting or metal cutting discs.
PREPARING YOUR CIRCULAR SAW
SETTING THE DEPTH OF CUT ADJUSTMENT
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the plug from the electricity supply.
Loosen the depth of cut
adjustment (3) at the
3
bottom of the scale.
Move your circular saw
•
up the scale until the
21
desired depth of cut is
•
indicated on the scale
(21). Tighten the screw
•
(3). The depth of cut
22
should be 3mm greater
than the thickness of the workpiece.
SETTING THE SIGHT GUIDANCE SYSTEM
(NOT KS227/KS840/CD600)
The window and ‘sight guide’ are designed to enable
accurate cutting everytime the saw is used.

sawing the workpiece. Guide the saw without pushing
it and give the blade time to pursue its path. Use the
mark (17) for straight cuts or the mark (18) for mitring
cuts, to keep to the line you have drawn.
MAINTENANCE OF THE WINDOW
From time to time, it may become necessary to remove
cutting debris/dust from the inside of your circular saw
window.
To do this, proceed as follows:
Disconnect the plug from the electricity supply.
Slide the window lever
(2) forward to expose
the soiled portion of the
window.
Take a clean, lint free
cloth and proceed to
wipe the exposed part of
the window as required.
When finished, simply slide the lever back towards the
rear of the saw guard in order to restore the window
into its operating position.
Note: If necessary, use only mild soap to clean your
saw as many household cleaners contain chemicals
which could seriously damage the plastic. Also, do not
use petrol, turpentine, laquer or paint thinners or
simular products. Never let any liquid get inside your
circular saw and never immerse any part of it into liquid.
REPLACING THE CARBON BRUSHES
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the plug from the electricity supply.
Unscrew the brush cover (11). Withdraw the carbon
brush and holder. Remove the carbon brush from the
brush holder. Insert the new carbon brush in the brush
holder. Insert the carbon brush and brush holder in
the housing. Fit the brush covers.
Note: Replace the brushes in pairs and ensure used
brushes and brush holders are fitted in the same
positions as when removed.
HANDY HINTS
Some splintering is inevitable on the topside line of cut.
It is therefore desirable to cut on the side of the
workpiece where splintering is acceptable. This is
especially important when cutting laminates.
TOOL CARE
• Guide your circular saw but do not force it through
the work. Applying excessive pressure can cause
your circular saw to overheat. If your circular saw
becomes too hot, operate it off-load for 2 minutes.
• Always keep the air cooling vents on the motor
housing clear.
