3 ENGLISH (Original instructions) 2 3 Intended use Your BLACK+DECKER KFBES850 saw has been designed for sawing wood, plastics and metal. This tool is intended for consumer use only. Safety instructions General power tool safety warnings @ Warning! Read all safety warnings, instruc- tions, illustrations and specifications provided with power tool. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. Save all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery oper- ated (cordless) power tool. 1. Work area safety a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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. f. If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD 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. b. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries. c. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising 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 dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards. h. Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools allow you to become complacent and ignore tool safety principles. A careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction of a second. 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 and/or the battery pack from the power tool 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 A B C D E F

4 ENGLISH (Original instructions) 5 ENGLISH (Original instructions) these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users. e. Maintain power tools and accessories. 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, 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. h. Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and greasy surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of the tool in unexpected situations. 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 power tool safety warnings @ Warning! Additional safety warnings for jigsaws and reciprocating saws u Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where the cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring. Cutting accessory contacting a "live" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live" and could give the operator an electric shock. u Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may lead to loss of control. u Keep hands away from cutting area. Never reach underneath the work piece any reason. Do not insert fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating blade and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by gripping the shoe. u Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may cause the saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always use the appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece material and type of cut. u When cutting pipe or conduit, make sure that they are free from water, electrical wiring, etc. u Do not touch the workpiece or the blade immediately after operating the tool. They can become very hot. u Be aware of hidden hazards, before cutting into walls, floors or ceilings, check for the location of wiring and pipes. u The blade will continue to move after releasing the switch. Always switch the tool off and wait for the saw blade to come to a complete standstill before putting the tool down. Warning! Contact with, or inhalation of dusts arising from cut- ting applications may endanger the health of the operator and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure that persons within or entering the work area are also protected. u The intended use is described in this instruction manual. u 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 and/or damage to property. Safety of others u This charger can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concern- ing use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. u Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision. Residual risks Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc. Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual risks can not be avoided. These include: u Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts. u Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or ac- cessories. u Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take regular breaks. u Impairment of hearing. u Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed when using your tool (example:- working with wood, especially oak, beech and MDF.) Vibration The declared vibration emission values stated in the technical data and the declaration of conformity have been measured in accordance with a standard test method provided by EN62841 and may be used for comparing one tool with another. The declared vibration emission value may also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure. Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of the power tool can differ from the declared value depending on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may increase above the level stated. When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons regularly using power tools in employment, an estimation of vibration exposure should consider, the actual conditions of use and the way the tool is used, including taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time. Labels on tool The following symbols, along with the date code, are shown on the tool: : Warning! To reduce the risk of injury, the user must read the instruction manual. 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. u If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised BLACK+DECKER Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard. Features This tool includes some or all of the following features. 1. Variable speed switch 2. Lock-off button 3. Blade release button Fig. A 4. Large capacity blade 5. Curve cutting blade 6. Metal cutting blade Assembly Warning! Before assembly, make sure that the tool is switched off and unplugged. Used saw blades may be hot. Fitting and removing a saw blade (fig. B & C) Fitting u Place the blade over the location pin (7). u Rotate the blade upward through 90° until it is fully located in the saw blade slot (8) and the location pin is in the locked position. u Make sure the blade is securely fitted by trying to remove it without depressing the blade release button (3). If you are unable to fit the blade, check if the location pin is in the correct position as shown in fig. C. If it is not, keep the blade release button depressed and use a screwdriver to turn the location pin into the correct position. Removing u Keep the blade release button (3) depressed and rotate the blade downward through 90°. u Take the blade sideways off the location pin and slide it out of the tool. u Release the blade release button. Use Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload. Switching on and off (fig. D) u To switch the tool on, push the two lock-off buttons (2) into the unlock position and press the variable speed switch (1). u To switch the tool off, release the variable speed switch. Sawing (fig. E) u If possible, always hold the tool with both hands. u Let the blade run freely for a few seconds before starting the cut. u Apply only a gentle pressure to the tool while performing the cut. u Use the same back and forth movement you would em- ploy with a normal hand saw. This enables a quicker and cleaner cut. Hints for optimum use Sawing wood u Clamp the workpiece securely and remove all nails and metal objects. u When splintering is to be minimised, e.g. when cutting laminates, clamp a piece of scrap wood or hardboard to both sides of the workpiece and saw through this sand- wich. Sawing metal u Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time than sawing wood. u Use a saw blade suitable for sawing metal. Use a finetooth saw blade for ferrous metals and a coarser saw blade for nonferrous metals. u Make the cut close to the main branch or tree body. Operating in jigsaw mode (fig. F) u Remove the blade.
