Black & Decker KA165K Instruction manual
New Zealand
Intended use
Your Black & Decker sander has been designed for sanding
and polishing wood, metal, plastics and painted surfaces.
This tool is intended for consumer use only.
Safety instructions
Warning! When using mains-powered tools, basic safety
precautions, including the following, should always be
followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, personal
injury and material damage.
Read all of this manual carefully before operating the tool.
Retain this manual for future reference.
Remove the plug from the socket before carrying out any
adjustment, servicing or maintenance.
Keep work area clean
Cluttered areas and benches can cause accidents.
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. 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.
Keep children away
Do not allow children, visitors or animals to come near the
work area or to touch the tool or mains cable.
Dress properly
Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery, as these can be
caught in moving parts. Preferably wear rubber gloves and
non-slip footwear when working outdoors. Wear protective
hair covering to keep long hair out of the way.
Personal protection
Always use safety glasses. Use a face or dust mask whenever
the operations may produce dust or flying particles. Hearing
protection should be worn whenever the sound level seems
Guard against electric shock
Prevent body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces (e.g.
pipes, radiators, cookers and refrigerators). Electric safety can
be further improved by using a high-sensitivity (30 mA / 30 mS)
residual current device (RCD).
Do not overreach
Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
Stay alert
Watch what you are doing. Use common sense. Do not
operate the tool when you are tired.
Secure workpiece
Use clamps or a vice to hold the workpiece. It is safer and it
frees both hands to operate the tool.
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.
Remove adjusting keys and wrenches
Always check that adjusting keys and wrenches are removed
from the tool before operating the tool.
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. Up to 30 m of Black & Decker
extension cable can be used without loss of power.
Use appropriate tool
The intended use is described in this instruction manual.
Do not force small tools or attachments to do the job of a
heavy-duty tool. The tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was intended. Do not force the tool. Do not
use the tool for purposes not intended, for example, do not
use a circular saw to cut tree limbs or logs.
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.
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 repaired or replaced by an
authorised repair agent. Never attempt any repairs yourself.
Unplug the tool
Unplug the tool when it is not in use, before changing any
parts of the tool, accessories or attachments and before
Avoid unintentional starting
Do not carry the tool with a finger on the on/off switch. Be
sure that the tool is switched off when plugging in.
Do not abuse cord
Never carry the tool by its cord or pull it to disconnect from the
socket. Keep the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
Store idle tools
When not in use, tools should be stored in a dry, locked up or
high place, out of reach of children.
Maintain tools with care
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean for better and safer
performance. Follow the instructions for maintenance and
changing accessories. Keep handles and switches dry, clean
and free from oil and grease.
This tool complies with 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.
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.
Additional safety instructions for sanders
◆ Always wear a dust mask whenever sanding.
◆ Thoroughly remove all dust after sanding.
◆ Before using the tool on wooden workpieces, make sure
to fit dust extraction equipment.
◆ Before using the tool on metal workpieces, make sure to
remove the dust extraction equipment.
◆ Never use the tool without a sanding sheet.
◆ Never use the tool without a sanding base.
◆ Hearing protection should be worn whenever the sound
level seems uncomfortable.
Sanding lead-based paint or MDF
Sanding of lead-based paint is not recommended due to the
difficulty of controlling the contaminated dust. The greatest
danger of lead poisoning is to children and pregnant women.
Any pre-1960 building may in the past have been painted with
paint containing lead. This paint may be covered with
additional layers of paint. Before starting work, it is important
to determine whether the paint to be sanded contains lead.
This can be done using a test kit or by a professional decorator.
Personal protection
◆ Do not let children or pregnant women enter the work area.
◆ 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 eat, drink or smoke in the work area. Do not store
any food or drink in the work area.
◆ Wash yourself very carefully before eating, drinking or
◆ Remove the paint in such a way that the amount of dust is
◆ Seal the work area with plastic sheeting.
◆ Minimise the amount of dust outside the work area.
◆ Thoroughly vacuum and clean all surfaces in the work
area every day.
◆ Regularly change the dustbag and filters of the vacuum
◆ Thoroughly wash any foreign objects exposed to dust
before using them again.
