S. Duncan Black and Alonzo G. Decker founded the Black & Decker small machine shop in 1910 in Baltimore, Maryland; and the duo found their niche in the power tool industry by inventing the electric drill seven years later. The pistol-grip and trigger style drill became popular and is now a staple on construction sites and in households alike. Realizing the profit potential of power tools, Black & Decker has grown and acquired several other popular power tool brands, including DeWalt, Porter Cable, Delta, and Kwikset.
Always keep owner and operation manuals close at hand and refer to them if you have questions. Make sure you turn the tool completely off when it is not in use. Check for loose power cord connections or any damage in the cord, which can cause electrocution.
Users should verify the electrical test label at the time of purchasing new one. They should know all applications, limitations and potential hazards of power tools. Power tools must be operated as per the instructions of manufacturer. They should timely inspect tool for loose or broken switches and other problems.
