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 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!
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.
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.
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
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.
Up to 30m (100ft) of Black & Decker 2-core
extension cable (or 3-core extension cordset, in
Australia and New Zealand) 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.
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.

All models
Note: To achieve a greater accuracy of cut, ensure
back of blade is touching blade support roller. See
‘Blade suport roller’ for instructions on how to change
position of blade support roller.
To provide greater support and accuracy when cutting,
your jigsaw is fitted with a blade support roller. This
support should be adjusted so that the roller touches
the back of the blade when cutting.
To do this, loosen the front
screw on the base of the
shoe. Push the blade
support forward until the
roller touches the back
edge of the blade. Retighten
the screw. Lubricating the
guide roller (5) from time to time with a drop of oil will
extend the life of the roller.
For scroller jigsaws only
Note: When using your jigsaw in the scrolling mode,
the blade support roller needs to be retracted to allow
free movement of the blade.
To do this, untighten the
front screw on the base of
the shoe and retract the
support. Re-tighten the
To switch your jigsaw on, fully squeeze the on/off
trigger switch (1). To switch your jigsaw off, release
the trigger switch (1). When plugging your jigsaw in,
ensure the trigger switch is in the OFF position.
When continuous operation is required, squeeze the
trigger and depress the lock on button (2) and release
the trigger. To disengage the lock, squeeze and release
the trigger. Always disengage the lock before
disconnecting from the power supply.
The shoe plate (6) can be angled up to 45˚ on either side.
To do this, disconnect your jigsaw from the power supply.
Raise or remove the dust
shroud (4) and loosen both
screws on the shoe plate
with a screwdriver. Pull the
shoe plate backward a little,
and set the desired angular
adjustment according to the
scale or push the shoe plate
forward for fixed locks at 0˚,
15˚, 30˚, or 45˚. Tighten the
screws to secure. Although
the scale and notches are
accurate for most purposes
it is advisable for very
accurate angle cutting to use a protractor to set the
shoe. Make a test cut on some scrap material to check
the accuracy of the angle. To reset the shoe for a
square cut, slacken the clamp screws and move the
shoe until it is approximately 90˚ to the blade, and then,
whilst applying slight forward pressure on the shoe,
retighten the clamp screws. If necessary, re-adjust the
bade support roller using only the front screw.
To aid visibility when cutting,
your jigsaw is fitted with a
facility which will blow dust
away from surface of
material being cut. To utilise,
lift up or remove dust visor
and ensure the variable
blower control is pointing towards the

The electronic speed
control wheel (3) is used to
programme the required
saw speed depending on
the material being worked.
The correct speed for a particular material can be
obtained from the following table:
Electronic speed regulation
6 - max
Note: After using your jigsaw for extended periods on
stroke settings 1-4, run the saw for 3 minutes at
maximum speed to aid cooling.
For scroller jigsaws only
Before use, remember to retract the blade support
roller and ensure the shoe is in the forward position.
The scrolling feature enables you to have maximum
control whilst following complex cut lines.
To operate, press the button
(10) on the front of your
jigsaw and the scroller knob
(9) will spring upwards. Pull
the knob up to its full extent.
Your jigsaw is now ready for
scrolling mode. Using one
hand to guide the jigsaw, turn the scroller knob to
guide the blade along the line of cut. The blade will turn
a full 360˚.
The orientation of the blade
can be locked in any one of
4 positions - 0˚, 90˚, 180˚, 270˚
to enable straight cutting in
awkward areas. To lock the
blade in any of these four
positions, push the button in
on the front of the unit, and push the knob down. When
the button is released the blade is locked in position.
To reset, push the button on the front of the jigsaw.
For straight line cutting, press the button on the front of
your jigsaw and push the knob down and replace the
blade support roller to touch the back of the blade.
Cutting laminates
The blades of your jigsaw cut on the upstroke so any
tendency for edge splintering will occur on the face of
the material nearest the saw shoe. When sawing thin
wood or plastic laminates, use a fine tooth metal
cutting blade and cut from the back surface of the
material. To minimise the risk of chipping the edges of
plastic laminate, clamp a piece of scrap wood
or hardboard to both sides of the laminate to form a
sandwich, and saw through the complete assembly.
Always select the right blade for the job.
Pocket cutting
The saw blade can be inserted directly into a wood
surface without first drilling a pilot hole, thus
eliminating a drilling operation.
First measure and clearly mark the surface to be cut.
Then tip your jigsaw forward so that the rounded tips of
the shoe rest on the work surface but with the blade
well clear of it. Switch your jigsaw on and move the
saw down until the moving blade is exactly over the
chosen point of entry. Lower the rear of the shoe down
towards the work slowly, maintaining a firm pivoting
pressure on the shoe tips with the blade exactly on the
required line. Do not move your jigsaw forward along
the cut line until the saw blade has completely
entered the material and the shoe comes to rest flat
on its surface.
Cutting metal
Your jigsaw can be used for cutting light gauge ferrous
sheet and non-ferrous metals such as copper, brass,
aluminium, etc.
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 clean cut without
vibration and the possibility of tearing the metal. 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 commencing to saw metal. Always select the
right blade for the job.
Disconnect your jigsaw from the power supply. Use only
mild soap and a slightly damp cloth to clean your
jigsaw. 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 your jigsaw into liquid.
