SAW BLADE ALIGNMENT BEFORE WELDING
For internal sawing, the blade is inserted through the starting hole in the work . The ends of the saw blade are then
brought together to be clamped into the jaws.
When rewelding a used band cut
out the old weld - it is
recommended that the saw band
contain only one weld.
NOTE: When welding band which
passes through hole in workpiece -
be sure to insulate band from contact
with workpiece or table, this will
insure a better weld.
Place the band ends between the jaws with the teeth against the line-up guides which are attached to the front edge
of the jaws, see sketch. NOTE: Blades which are 1/8 inch or less in width are too narrow to be clamped correctly
when they are placed against the line-up plates. Move these narrow blades back slightly from the line-up plates
and align them by eye, then clamp them in place.
The jaws are clamped by moving the handles upward.
Check to be sure that the band ends meet in the center of the jaw gap without any offset either in thickness or
across the width. If the contact across the width is not complete, remove one end and recut it. A misaligned joint
will cause an incomplete weld.
