Intended use
Your Black & Decker router has been designed for routing
wood and wood products. 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.
6
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.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure 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.
d. 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.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power tool
in unexpected situations.
f. 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.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure 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 ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Additional safety instructions for routers
◆ Only use router bits with a shank diameter equal to the
size of the collet installed in the tool.
◆ Only use router bits suitable for the no-load speed of the
tool.
◆ Never use router bits with a diameter exceeding the
maximum diameter specified in the technical data section.
◆ Hold the tool by the handles as indicated.
◆ Do not use the tool in an inverted position.
◆ Do not attempt to use the tool in a stationary mode.
◆ Remove all nails and metal objects from the workpiece
before routing.
◆ Before cutting into walls, floors or ceilings, check for the
location of wiring and pipes.
◆ Take special care when routing MDF or surfaces coated
with lead-based paint:
– Wear a dust mask specifically designed for protection
against lead paint dust and fumes and ensure that persons
within or entering the work area are also protected.
– Do not let children or pregnant women enter the work
area.
– Do not eat, drink or smoke in the work area.
– Dispose of dust particles and any other debris safely.
◆ Always wear a dust mask.
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.
◆
◆
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

along the edge of irregularly shaped workpieces.
◆ Place the router on the workpiece at the desired distance
from the edge to be copied.
◆ Adjust the bars of the edge guide until the wheel is in
contact with the workpiece.
Switching on and off
Switching on
◆ Keep the lock-off button (2) depressed and press the
on/off switch (1).
◆ Release the lock-off button.
Switching off
◆ Release the on/off switch.
Warning! Always operate the tool with both hands.
Allow the tool to build up speed before plunging down
into the workpiece. When the depth stop bar has been
contacted, operate the plunge lock lever (5).
Carry out the operation by applying a constant force both
downwards and in the direction of cut. Retain a firm grip
on the handles and be prepared for a possible reaction
force if the router bit suddenly stalls e.g. following
contact with a knot.
On completion of the operation, release the plunge lock
lever and control the upwards movement of the tool back
to its original position. When the tool has returned to its
original position, it can be switched off. Be aware that the
base is springloaded and that the tool will jump upwards
if not controlled.
Routing speed
The operating speed of the tool can be varied to affect the
level of finish. The correct speed selection will depend upon
the level of finish required, the type of material being
machined, the diameter and shape of the router bit.
◆ Prepare the tool to make a practice cut on a piece of scrap
material. Make a preliminary adjustment of the speed
control selecting a high speed for small diameter router
bits and a low speed for large diameter router bits.
◆ When the routing operation is completed, withdraw the
tool from the workpiece, switch off and the tool inspect
the level of finish. Adjust the speed control knob (4) and
repeat until an optimum level of finish is obtained.
Warning! Do not release the handles to adjust the speed
when the tool is locked down and operating in the workpiece.
Hints for optimum use
◆ When working on outside edges, move the tool
counterclockwise (fig. N). When working on inside edges,
move the tool clockwise.
◆ Use HSS router bits for softwood.
◆ Use TCT router bits for hardwood.
◆ You can use the tool without a guide (fig. O). This is
useful for signwriting and creative work. Only make
shallow cuts.
◆ Refer to the table below for common types of router bits.
Routing
◆ Fit the router bit and adjust to the required depth of cut as
described above.
◆ Holding the tool firmly with both hands by the handles (3),
place the tool on the workpiece and switch on.
