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 this product and save these instructions.
For safe operation:
• We recommend that you take appropriate measures
for the protection of hearing if the sound pressure of
85 dB (A) is exceeded.
• Keep the work area clean. Cluttered areas and
benches invite injuries.
• Consider work area environment. Do not expose
power tools to rain and do not use power tools in
damp or wet locations. Keep the work area well lit.
Do not use power tools 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, refrigerators).
• Keep children away. Do not let visitors touch the
tool or extension cord. All visitors should be kept
away from 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 tools 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 using 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 your work. Use clamps or a vice to hold your
work. It is safer than using your hand and it frees
both hands to operate the tool.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
• Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean for better and safer performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing

accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if
damaged have repaired by an authorised service
facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and
replace if damaged. Keep handles dry, clean and
free from oil and grease.
Disconnect tools. Disconnect 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 outdoor extension cords. When a tool is used
outdoors, use only extension cords intended for
outdoor use and so marked.
Stay alert. Watch what you are doing. Use common
sense. Do not operate tools when you are tired.
Connect dust extraction equipment. If devices are
provided for the connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used, especially in confined areas.
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 this
instruction manual. 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 this instruction manual,
may present a risk of personal injury.
Have your tool repaired by a qualified person. This
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 SMALL
ANGLE GRINDERS
• Use the guard and ensure it is fitted correctly.
ENGLISH
• Check mounting flanges and the disc are correctly
fitted and are undamaged.
• Ensure you are using the correct size and type of
disc for the task.
• Ensure the disc, wire brush and sanding
accessories are rated in excess of the spindle rpm
of your angle grinder. Allow a newly assembled
wheel to idle off-load for 30 seconds before starting
any operation.
Save these instructions!
DOUBLE INSULATION
Your 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 this
tool. The insulation system is for added protection
against injury resulting from a possible electrical
insulation failure within the tool.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Be sure your supply is the same as the voltage given
on the rating plate. This tool is fitted with a two-core
cord 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
repair 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 = L (live), blue = 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.
• Your product is supplied with a non-rewireable plug,
if the fuse cover is missing or damaged do not use
the plug.

EXTENSION CABLES
You can use up to 30m (100ft) of Black & Decker 2-core
extension cable (or 3-core extension cable in Australia
and New Zealand) 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 and 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.

FITTING THE DISCS
GRINDING AND FINISHING
Use a rigid abrasive disc with a depressed centre for
surface grinding and finishing. The maximum diameter
ENGLISH
disc you can use is 115mm (KG65/KG72) and 125mm
(KG90). The maximum thickness is 6mm and the centre
hole is 22mm.

section. The maximum diameter you can use is 115mm
(KG65/KG72) and 125mm (KG90). The maximum
thickness is 3.5mm and the centre hole is 22mm.
CUTTING MASONRY
Use a flat cutting disc. The maximum diameter you can
use is 115mm (KG65/KG72) and 125mm (KG90). Always
approach the work at the angle at which you will cut.
Maintain this angle throughout the cut and do not exert
a side load on the disc.
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the plug from the electricity supply.
Ensure the guard
a
is fitted.
Place the inner
flange (a) on the
spindle. Ensure it
is located on the
two flats.
a
Place the
abrasive disc on
the spindle and
inner flange (a).
Ensure it is
correctly located.
b
Fit the threaded
outer flange (b),
making sure it is
facing in the
correct direction
for the type of
disc fitted. For
grinding discs, the
flange (b) is fitted
with the raised
portion facing
towards the disc. For cutting discs, the flange (b) is
fitted with the inner portion facing away from the disc.
Hold the spanner

HANDY HINTS
Hold your angle
grinder firmly with
one hand around
the side handle
and the other
around the body
of your angle
grinder.
• Always position the guard so that as much of the
exposed disc as possible is pointing away from you.
• Be prepared for a stream of sparks when the disc
touches the metal.
When grinding,
always maintain
the correct angle
between the disc
and the work
surface (15˚).
15°
This increases the
removal capacity
of the disc and avoids unnecessary overloading.

OVERLOAD
Overloading will cause damage to the motor of your
angle grinder. This can happen if your angle grinder is
subjected to heavy duty use for prolonged periods of
use. Do not in any circumstances, attempt to exert too
much pressure on your angle grinder to speed up your
work. The abrasive discs operate more efficiently
when a light pressure is exerted, thus avoiding a drop
in the speed of your angle grinder (see Tool care).
TOOL CARE
Keep guards, air vents and the motor housing as clear
as possible of dust and dirt. Wipe with a clean cloth
and blow through with a low-pressure air supply.
Excessive build-up of metal dust can cause tracking of
electrical current from the internal parts to exposed
metal parts. Do not overload your angle grinder.
Overloading causes a reduction in speed and
efficiency, causing your angle grinder to become too
hot. If this happens, operate your angle grinder under
no load for one or two minutes until it has cooled to
normal operating temperature. Switching your angle
grinder off under load will reduce the life of the switch.
CLEANING
Use only mild soap and a slightly damp cloth to clean
your angle grinder. Many household cleaners contain
chemicals which could seriously damage the plastic.
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 the tool
into liquid.
