The safe and proper use of our products is very important to us and it is the end user’s responsibility to follow all safety practices. One important aspect of safe saw operation is the saw blade speed. OSHA guidelines state the maximum safe cutting speed for wood is 15,000 surface feet per minute (SFM). For products other than wood, the maximum safe speed is lower. Optimum cutting speeds vary, but are typically between 50% and 75% of the maximum speed. Your experience will determine the speed which provides acceptable results. NEVER EXCEED THE MAXIMUM SAFE SAW SPEED.
Clamping the material securely at the point of cutting is required for good results. Sharpen the saw when indications of dulling appear which affect the finish. Please contact us with any questions.
