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 or Scorpion
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.
• 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.
4
• Disconnect the tool when not in use, before
servicing and when changing accessories such as
blades, bits and cutters.
• 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
centre. 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.
Save these instructions!
Additional safety instructions for Australia and
New Zealand
• This appliance is not intended for use by young or
infirm persons without supervision. Children must
be supervised to ensure they do not play with the
appliance.
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or an authorised Black &
Decker Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard.
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.
ENGLISH
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
centre 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).

• Before replacing the top cover of the plug ensure
that the cable restraint is holding the outer sheath of
the cable firmly and that the two leads are correctly
fixed at the terminal screws. If the fuse cover is
missing or damaged do not use the plug.
For replacement or detachable fuse covers,
contact a Black & Decker service centre.
Warning! Never connect live or neutral wires to the
earth pin marked E or
.
MAINS PLUG REPLACEMENT
(AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ONLY)
Should the mains plug or cordset of the product be
damaged, it must only be replaced by an authorised
Black & Decker service agent because special
purpose tools are required.
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.

BEFORE USING YOUR SAW THINK!
Before you start cutting make sure that the area you
are going to cut is clear of all obstacles particularly
on the reverse side of the cut.
If you use the saw with one hand always ensure your
free hand is away from the cutting area.
REMOVAL & REFITTING THE BLADE
Your Scorpion Saw has a new blade clamping
mechanism. Before using the saw familiarize
yourself with the removal of the blade and refitting
the blade securely in the saw.
ENGLISH
Always ensure the unit is unplugged from the power
supply when changing blades.
Always ensure the tooth protector is fitted when
changing blades.
REMOVING THE BLADE
Ensure blade has cooled
after use. Press and hold
the rear of the blade
release button fully, hold
the back of the blade
and rotate the blade
through 90° as shown
in the diagram. Slide
the blade sideways off
the retaining pin and
remove from the saw.
FITTING A BLADE
Place the blade with the
tooth protector fitted
over the location pin. The
blade teeth should be
facing the handle.
RotaíQ”the blade through
90° until it is fully located
in the slot and the
location pin is in the locked position.
To ensure the blade is
securely fitted try to
remove without pressing
the blade release button.
Remove the tooth
protector, your saw is
now ready for use.
Note: If you are unable to fit the blade, check if the
location pin is in the correct position as shown
below. If it is not, keep the blade release button
depressed and use a screwdriver to turn the location
pin into the correct position.
OPERATING YOUR SCORPION SAW
Variable speed trigger switch
Your Scorpion Saw is equipped with a variable speed
trigger switch that allows you greater control over
start of cut, rate of cut and breakthrough of cut.
To switch your Scorpion
Saw on, push lock-off
button (2) and squeeze
the on/off variable
speed trigger switch (1).
To switch off, release
the trigger, the unit will
automatically lock-off.
Standard Mode
To obtain the best results
from your Scorpion Saw,
use the same backward
and forward movement
you would employ with
a traditional hand saw.
This will enable a quicker cleaner cut.
Operating in Jigsaw Mode
Disconnect unit from
power supply. Remove
blade, rotate shoe
through 270˚ and secure
in position. Fit curve
cutting blade.
Remove tooth protector
and your Scorpion Saw
is now ready for use.
Cutting Metal
Your Scorpion Saw can be used for cutting light
gauge ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as
copper, brass, aluminium, etc. See recommended
materials.
It is advisable when cutting thin sheet to clamp a
backing sheet of soft wood or plywood to the work
as this will enable you to obtain a cleaner cut. Both
metal and wood backing are sawn together. Do not
force the cutting blade into the metal as this will
reduce the life of the blade and possibly damage the
motor. Cutting thin metal will take longer than cutting
even a relatively thick piece of wood, so do not be
tempted to speed up the operation by forcing the
saw. Spread a thin film of oil along the proposed
cutting line before cutting.
Only use the metal cutting blade for this purpose.

CLEANING
Disconnect your Scorpion Saw from the power

to clean your Scorpion Saw. Many household
cleaners contain chemicals which could seriously
damage the plastic and gel components. Also, do not
use petrol, turpentine, lacquer or paint thinners or
similar products. Never let any liquid get inside the
tool and never immerse any part of your Scorpion
Saw into liquid.
