          This Amendment No. 2 to the Statement on Schedule 13D is
being filed pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated
thereunder.  This Amendment No. 2 amends only Items 2 and 5 of the
Schedule 13D.  In accordance with Rule 13d-2(c) and Item 101(a)(2) of
Regulation S-T, however, as the first amendment after mandated
electronic filing, this Amendment No. 2 restates the entire text of
the Schedule 13D and amendment previously filed, other than the text
of the Exhibits previously filed pursuant to Item 7.


Item 1.   Security and Issuer.

          This Amendment No. 2 amends the Statement on Schedule 13D,
as previously amended, relating to the common stock, par value $.50
per share (the "Common Stock"), the Series B Cumulative Convertible
Preferred Stock, without par value ("Series B Stock"), and the
associated rights to purchase Series A Junior Participating Preferred
Stock, of The Black & Decker Corporation, a Maryland corporation (the
"Corporation"), previously filed by Newell Co., a Delaware corporation
("Newell").  The principal executive offices of the Corporation are
located at 701 East Joppa Road, Towson, Maryland 21204.


Item 2.   Identity and Background.

          This Statement is being filed by Newell, with its principal
offices at Newell Center, 29 East Stephenson Street, Freeport,
Illinois 61032.  Newell manufactures and markets high-volume staple
consumer products which are sold through a variety of retail and
wholesale distribution channels.  Product categories include
housewares, hardware, home furnishings and office products.

          During the past five years, Newell (i) has not been
convicted in any criminal proceeding, and (ii) was not a party to a
civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent
jurisdiction as a result of which it was or is subject to a judgment,
decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting
or mandating activity subject to, federal or state securities laws or
finding any violation with respect to such laws.

          The information required by this Item for each executive
officer and director of Newell is set forth in Attachment I hereto
which is incorporated herein by reference. 

          In accordance with the terms of the Letter Agreement dated
August 13, 1991 attached as Exhibit 1 to the Statement on Schedule 13D
previously filed by Newell (the "Letter Agreement"), M. Cabell
Woodward, Jr. is currently serving as a member of the Board of
Directors of the Corporation.



                                   3

<PAGE>                                   
Item 3.   Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

          On September 24, 1991, pursuant to the Letter Agreement,
Newell purchased 150,000 shares of Series B Stock (including
associated rights pursuant to the Corporation's Stockholder Rights
Plan) for an aggregate purchase price of $150,000,000.  The funds used
to acquire the Series B Stock came from general corporate funds and
the sale of accounts receivable to Asset Securitization Cooperative
Corporation pursuant to the terms of a Receivables Sale Agreement
among Newell, ASCC and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce as
Administrative Agent, attached as Exhibit 4 to the Statement on
Schedule 13D previously filed by Newell.



Item 4.   Purpose of Transaction.

          Newell purchased the Series B Stock as an investment and
because it believed that its ownership of a minority interest in the
Corporation would be beneficial to both Newell and the Corporation. 
The $150,000,000 received by the Corporation enabled it to reduce its
outstanding indebtedness, and the investment gives Newell an interest
in a company that sells some of the most recognized brands in the
hardware industry through channels of distribution which are similar
to Newell's and that has strong international operations.  Newell also
believed that the association of two companies with excellent
reputations in the industry benefit both companies and that areas of
mutual cooperation may develop.

          In early 1990, Newell purchased for investment a total of
2,841,200 shares of Common Stock of the Corporation in stock exchange
transactions.  At that time, the parties entered into a three-year
agreement to limit any investment in each other and to refrain from
soliciting proxies or participating in an election contest with
respect to the other.  About a year later, the Corporation and Newell
commenced discussions about an additional investment by Newell, and
the discussions led to the Letter Agreement providing for the purchase
of the 150,000 shares of Series B Stock.

          Holders of shares of Series B Stock are entitled to receive
cumulative quarterly cash dividends, if and when declared, at an
annual rate of $77.50 per shares ($127.50 after a change in control). 
Each share of Series B Stock is entitled to 42.337 votes on all matters
submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Corporation, and shares of
Series B Stock generally will vote together with the shares of Common
Stock as a single class. With certain exceptions, Newell will vote its
stock in accordance with the recommendation of the Board of Directors
of the Corporation or, in the absence of a recommendation, in the same
proportion as the other stockholders.  In accordance with the terms of
the Letter Agreement, Newell is entitled to propose one mutually
acceptable director to the Corporation's Board of Directors.  If four
quarterly dividends are unpaid, Newell will be entitled to elect a
second director.

                                   4          

<PAGE>                                   
          Each share of Series B Stock is convertible into 42.337
shares of Common Stock.  The number of shares of Common Stock into
which each share of Series B Stock is convertible and the number of
votes represented by each share of Series B Stock is subject to
antidilution adjustments under certain circumstances.

          After five years, the Corporation may require conversion of
the Series B Stock into Common Stock if the market price of the Common
Stock has been equal to at least $50 per share on at least 20 trading
days out of 30 consecutive trading days.  After ten years, the
Corporation is entitled to redeem the Series B Stock (and to purchase
any Common Stock into which Series B Stock has been converted) based
on then current market price of the Common Stock.  Under certain
circumstances, the Corporation also has the right to exchange $1,000
principal amount of 11% Convertible Subordinated Notes of the
Corporation for each share of Series B Stock.

          In connection with the purchase of the Series B Stock,
Newell agreed, for a period of ten years, not to purchase more than
15% of the Corporation's Common Stock (considering the Series B Stock
for this purpose as if it had been converted into Common Stock) and to
limit certain actions, including Newell's rights with respect to
acquiring any assets of the Corporation, proposing a business
combination or other extraordinary transaction involving the
corporation, participating in the formation of a group which owns or
seeks to acquire beneficial ownership of securities of the
Corporation, soliciting proxies with respect to the Corporation, or
otherwise seeking control of the Corporation.  Newell's ability to
sell the shares of Series B Stock and any shares of Common Stock now
owned or hereafter acquired is limited to certain types of
transactions, and the Corporation has a right of first refusal under
certain circumstances.  The standstill agreements described above will
terminate in the event of a change in control of the Corporation, or
at the end of ten years.

          The information contained in this Schedule 13D with respect
to the Letter Agreement, Articles Supplementary and Standstill
Agreement and to the Series B Stock is qualified in its entirety by
reference to such documents, copies of which are attached as Exhibit 1
to the Statement on Schedule 13D previously filed by Newell and which
are incorporated by reference herein.

          Except as described above, Newell has no plans or proposals
which relate to or would result in any of the actions described in
clauses (a)-(j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.



Item 5.   Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

          (a)  Newell presently owns 1,627,600 shares of Common Stock
and 150,000 shares of Series B Stock of the Corporation.  If Newell

                                   5

<PAGE>                                   
were to convert all of the Series B Stock into Common Stock, Newell
would own approximately 8.7% of the Common Stock outstanding (based
upon the number of shares reported outstanding in the Corporation's
Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended April 2,
1995 and giving effect to the additional shares that would be
outstanding upon conversion of the Series B Stock but not to the
issuance of any other stock reserved for issuance by the Corporation). 
To the best of Newell's knowledge, none of the persons listed in
Attachment I beneficially owns any Common Stock.

          (b)  Newell has the sole power to vote and to dispose of the
Common Stock and the Series B Stock.

          (c)  Newell sold the following shares of Common Stock in
brokerage transactions on the New York Stock Exchange on the dates and
at the prices per share indicated:

                            Number of          Price Per
           Date              Shares              Share
