Changing the blade

When changing the blade, there are a number of things to take into account.

  1. Are you putting on the right blade? Check the work guide mounted to the front of the machine and grab a blade that is appropriate to what you are cutting.
    • We have guides for 1/2", 1/4", 1/8", and 1/16" blades (the guide blocks only support up to 1/2" blades).
    • Using a too big guide will dull the blade and shorten the life of the guides.
  2. Adjustments?
    1. First set the tension by watching the tension float as you turn the tension adjuster, it wobbles a bit, so make sure it centered on the line, not at one of the extents of the wobble.
    2. Next set the front/back adjustment. It should be as close to centered on the tire as you can get it, but it also should not be exerting much force on the roller bearings, we don't like replacing those. Find a good balance.


Consumables

We have blade guides for 1/2", 1/4", 1/8", and 1/16" blades (the guide blocks only support up to 1/2" blades). Using a too big guide will dull the blade and shorten the life of the guides.
