Intended use
Your Black & Decker sander has been designed for sanding
wood, metal, plastics and painted surfaces. 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,

hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate
conditions will reduce personal injuries.
Avoid accidental starting. Make sure that 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, make sure that
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. Service
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will make sure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.
Addition safety instructions for belt sanders
X
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.
Warning! Never operate the belt sander in an inverted
stationary position.
Warning! Contact with or inhalation of dusts arising from
sanding 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.
X
Thoroughly remove all dust after sanding.
X
Take special care when sanding paint which is possibly
lead based or when sanding some woods and metal which
may produce toxic dust:
X
Do not let children or pregnant women enter the work area.
X
Do not eat, drink or smoke in the work area.
X
Dispose of dust particles and any other debris safely.
X
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.
Electrical safety
This tool is double insulated; therefore no earth
wire is required. Always check that the power
supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating
plate.
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.
