Significant Protection Steps – The Process
There are so many situations that we simply can not cover in this article. All of these rules will apply in most situations. The key is to learn good common sense. If you follow these stepladders and create them a fragment of the sawing process, then the “skill” of using a band saw will continuously be accurate and be safer for the user.
1. Wear protective personal protection gear. Remember your eyes, ears and lungs. Make sure all loose clothing is secured and away from any action that could pull it in – no gloves. Always stay alert.
2. Retain the guards and guides in place and in working order. Make sure there are no chips or off cuts that could affect the performance of either. Make sure the higher and lesser wheel protector doors are closed tightly before turning on the saw.
3. Usage appropriate blades that are sharp and well maintained. Be aware of appropriate blade tension, tracking and alignment. Usage the true blade for the type of cut being made. The slimmer the blade, the sharper the curve it will cut. Wider blades should be used for greater curves and re-sawing.
4. Make sure that all moving parts are free and clear. Maintain a regular maintenance schedule and read the significant user information in the owner’s manual.
5. Because the main guard on a band saw is used to prevent excess blade exposure and is located above the guide procedures, it will be very significant to establish a boundary limit of 3″ from that blade that your pointers will not enter.
6. The upper guide procedure should be set to approximately 1/4″ or less above the height of the labor surface. If the guide is too high, the blade will not have the appropriate support and that could cause the blade to twist.
7. Be aware that the right-hand side of the saw is where cracked blades have a propensity to travel. Retain bystanders away from this area.
8. Always retain your fingers and pointers away after the track of the blade. Avoid using your thumb(s) to hook behind your labor to push the labor forward.
9. Continuously usage push sticks, quill boards, or any other essential protection expedient when cutting small or short inventory, or as a way to gain control. Remember that double-stick tape is a great way to hold small parts to greater, more manageable materials.
10. Do not attempt to cut inventory that does not have a flat bottom surface unless a suitable support is used or your labor is clamped to a sound surface of some sort. Always remember that the table is your control surface.
11. Grip the material inflexibly and food it into the blade at a reasonable speed – never force the cut. Permit the machine to come to full rapidity before creation any cut. If the motor starts to slow down and drag, you are feeding the inventory too fast.
12. As a general rule, it is OK to back out of short linear cuts. Turn off the machine if the labor is to be backed out of curved cuts. It is a good idea to create release or release cuts before cutting lengthy curves. Without relief cuts, the blade could become pinched in the labor; this will dull or break the blade.
13. If the blade breakdowns, shut the engine off and stand clear until the engine comes to a complete stop. Unplug the machine and wait for the motor to stop rotating before you open the doors.
14. Retain a stable carriage while using the engine. It is possible to move from the front of the saw to the back to pull your labor through, because there are no kickback forces. It is recommended that you get help if your work piece is too huge for one person to safely handle.
15. Never try to pick up or push away small off cuts that are next to the blade. Because there is no kickback hazard, learn to leave these slices alone.
16. Do not overfeed or force your inventory into the blade. It can decrease blade life and cause blade breaking.
17. When cutting with the table at an angle, be sure to block or clamp the work piece to prevent it or the off cut from falling off the table.
18. Give the labor your undivided attention. Make sure you shut the machine off when you are finished. Not ever leave a consecutively band saw unattended.
