Your Stanley Fat Max Chop Saw has been designed for the
cutting of variously shaped steel materials. This tool is
intended for professional and private, non professional users.
Safety instructions
General power tool safety warnings
@
Warning! When using power tools, always
observe the safety regulations applicable in your
country to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock
and personal injury..
Read all of this manual carefully before using the
appliance.
u The intended use is described in this manual. The use of
any accessory or attachment or the performance of any
operation with this appliance other than those
recommended in this instruction manual may present a
risk of personal injury.
u Retain this manual for future reference.
6. Do not force the tool
It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
intended.
7. Use the right tool
Do not force small tools to do the job of a heavy duty tool. Do
not use tools for purposes not intended; for example do not
use circular saws to cut tree limbs or logs.
8. Dress properly
Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery, as these can be
caught in moving parts. Wear protective hair covering to keep
long hair out of the way. When working outdoors, preferably
wear suitable gloves and non-slip footwear.
u
1. Keep work area clean
Cluttered areas and benches can cause accidents.
2. Consider work area environment
Do not expose the tool to rain. Do not use the tool in damp or
wet conditions. Keep the work area well lit (250 - 300 Lux). Do
not use the tool where there is a risk of causing fire or
explosion, e.g. in the presence of flammable liquids and
gases.
3. Guard against electric shock
Prevent body contact with earthed surfaces (e.g. pipes,
radiators, cookers and refrigerators). When using the tool
under extreme conditions (e.g. high humidity, when metal
swarf is being produced, etc.), electric safety can be further
improved by using a highsensitivity 30 mA Residual Current
Device (RCD).
4. Keep other persons away
Do not let persons, especially children, not involved in the
work touch the tool or the extension cord and keep them away
from the work area.
5. Store idle tools
When not in use, tools must be stored in a dry place and
locked up securely, out of reach of children.
4
9. Use protective equipment
Always use safety glasses. Use a face or dust mask whenever
the operations may produce dust or flying particles. If these
particles might be considerably hot, also wear a heat-resistant
apron. Wear ear protection at all times. Wear a safety helmet
at all times.
10. Connect dust extraction equipment
If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction
and collection facilities, ensure that these are connected and
properly used.
11. Do not abuse cord
Never carry the tool by its cord. Never pull the cord to
disconnect from the socket. Keep the cord away from heat, oil
and sharp edges.
12. Secure workpiece
Use clamps or a vice to hold the workpiece. It is safer and it
frees both hands to operate the tool.
13. Do not overreach
Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
14. Maintain tools with care
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean for better and safer
performance. Follow instruction for lubricating and changing
accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged
have them repaired by an authorized service facility. Inspect
extension cords periodically and replace if damaged. Keep
handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease.
15. Disconnect tool
Switch off and wait for the tool to come to a complete standstill
before leaving it unattended. Unplug the tool when not in use,
before changing any parts of the tools, accessories or
attachments and before servicing.
(Original instructions)
16. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches
Always check that adjusting keys and wrenches are removed
from the tool before operating the tool.
17. Avoid unintentional starting
Do not carry the tool with a finger on the switch. Be sure that
the tool is switched off before plugging in.
18. Use outdoor extension cables
Before use, inspect the extension cable and replace if
damaged. When using the tool outdoors, only use extension
cables intended for outdoor use and marked accordingly.
19. Stay alert
Watch what you are doing, use common sense and do not
operate the tool when you are tired.
20. Check for damaged parts
Before use, carefully check the tool and mains cable for
damage. Check for misalignment and seizure of moving
parts, breakage of parts, damage to guards and switches and
any other conditions that may affect its operation. Ensure that
the tool will operate properly and perform its intended function.
Do not use the tool if any part is damaged or defective. Do not
use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Have any
damaged or defective parts replaced by an authorised Black
and Decker repair agent. Never attempt any repairs yourself.
21. Warning!
The use of any accessory or attachment or performance
of any operation with this tool other than those
recommended in this instruction manual may present a
risk of personal injury.
22. Have your tool repaired by a qualified person
This tool is in accordance with the relevant safety regulations.
Have your tool repaired by an authorised Black and Decker
repair agent. Repairs should only be carried out by qualified
persons using original spare parts; otherwise this may result in
considerable danger to the user.

tool.
u Keep hands away from the cutting disc. Never cut
workpieces that require manual action closer than 15 cm
from the rotating cutting disc.
u Do not cut workpieces less than 1.2 mm in thickness when
using the cutting disc supplied with this tool.

u
ENGLISH
Never reach in the back of the cutting disc.
Always position the tool on a flat, stable surface that is
well maintained and free of loose materials, e.g. chips and
cut-offs.
u Before using, inspect the cutting disc for cracks or flaws.
Discard the cutting disc if a crack or flaw is evident.
u Make sure the cutting disc is not contacting the workpiece
before the tool is switched on.
u In operation, avoid bouncing the cutting disc or giving it
rough treatment. If this occurs, stop the tool and inspect
the cutting disc.
u Do not operate the tool while standing in line with the
cutting disc. Keep other persons away from the work area.

In spite of the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks cannot be avoided. These are:
u Impairment of hearing.
u Risk of accidents caused by the uncovered parts of the
rotating cutting disc.
u Risk of injury when changing the disc.
u Risk of squeezing fingers when opening the guards.
Electrical safety
#
u
6
Your tool is double insulated; therefore no earth
wire is required. Always check that the mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating
plate. Never attempt to replace the charger unit
with a regular mains plug.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or an authorised Stanley Fat Max Service
Centre in order to avoid a hazard.
Voltage drops
Inrush currents cause short-time voltage drops.
Under unfavourable power supply conditions, other
equipment may be affected.
If the system impedance of the power supply is lower
than 0.12 Ω, disturbances are unlikely to occur.
