silicon steel bandsaw blades
I realized that a good quality blade of half inch 3-teeth offers good results though I did try wider blades without any increased efficiency. Tension: sufficient blade tension ensures that your blade doesnt move erratically under pressure. As a typical tension gauge doesnt give really accurate results its better to have slightly additional tension than it indicates. You can verify that by opening the lateral guides and thrust bearings. Back off the two below and above the table thus disabling them to remain in contact with the blade. Next crank the tension gauge for getting the needed setting. Push the blade sideways by nearly midway between the lower and upper wheels. Now the blade would easily turn aside for a little length. The movement to sideways should be quarter inch.
With the easy slide system it makes it easier to cut the meat as the smooth moving table reduces the effort and increases productivity. Safety features include a brake motor that ensures the blade stops immediately when the unit is switched off or when the doors are opened. The Butcherquip Table Top Bandsaw also referred to as the Junior Bandsaw is a smaller unit at 92 kilograms that fits onto a table or counter top. It has a power output of 1.1 kilowatts with 230 volts. This catering equipment is ideal for cutting frozen or fresh meat poultry and fish. It is made of cast aluminium it is quite easy to clean and all the work surfaces that touch food are made of stainless steel. For safety purposes it has a safety switch on the access doors and an electronic motor brake which stops the blade instantly when the door is opened or if the unit is switched off.

This is why there is a time-tested and woodworker-specialized method for safely uncoiling your bandsaw blades. Said method is as follows: throw the blade on the ground. Well more specifically if your blade is packaged or tied carefully unpackage or untie it while maintaining its coil. With a firm grip on the blade throw it away from your body and into an open space. The blade will violently uncoil and fall to the floor from where you can peacefully collect it. You may also wear gloves during this process - they will eliminate the possibility of cut hands and fingers. Installing Your New Blade: Thread the new blade back through the slots on the saw table and situate the blade around and running through the center of the upper and lower blade-wheels.
Again using the tension wheel (knob) apply tension to the new blade. You may need to hold the blade in place until the tension itself becomes enough to maintain the blades position. Just exactly how much tension you apply to the blade is dependent upon the type more specifically the width of blade youve installed. There should be a tension-indicator on the back of your bandsaw to help you find the proper tension for your blade. Tracking: Once youve applied proper tension to the blade it needs to be tracked or centered. Using the tracking knob on the side of the band saw you can perfectly center the blade on the blade-wheels. Turn this knob while using your other hand to spin the blade wheel. This will allow you to see all of the blade and to track it accordingly. Adjusting: Next finalize the adjustments to your upper ball bearing guide which should sit just exactly behind though not touching the blade. There should be only a hairs breadth of space between the guide and the blade.
