Diamond Blades, Abrasive Blades
All manufacturers of diamond blades are very concerned that their products are used in a safe manner. Always wear appropriate safety equipment; wear safety glasses, safety footwear, snug-fitting clothing, hearing and head protection, and respiratory equipement where required.
How to Mount Diamond or Abrasive Blades
- Using the blade shaft wrench supplied with the saw, loosen and remove the blade shaft bolt and remove collar. Be sure blade shaft collars and arbor are free of dirt and all foreign materials before mounting blade on the shaft. TIGHTENING AN ABRASIVE BLADE AGAINST AN UNEVEN SURFACE COULD FRACTURE THE BLADE or cause blade to run out of alignment, causing excessive blade wear, and/or unsafe sawing conditions.
- Place the blade on the arbor. Attach loose collar and tighten the blade shaft bolt securely. When tightening bolt against outside blade shaft collar, be sure to tighten enough to hold the blade firmly without slipping, but do not over tighten. EXCESSIVE TIGHTENING CAN CAUSE AN ABRASIVE BLADE TO FRACTURE.
