Looking for a sliding mitre saw for doing decking. However the joists i am looking at are 43mm thick. Will this saw not cut that? I noticed a max cut depth of 35mm. It would just be straight cuts.
Code does't work . Cold..
Yes - You need a metal cutting blade. DON’T UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE USE ANY OTHER TYPE OF BLADE. Go slow, clamp the material and do not hold it with your hands. Metal cutting blades are designed to nip in small increments at the workpiece with a negative rake angle on the blade tips. This pushes the workpiece down and back into the fence, minimising the likelihood of it biting into the material and promptly throwing that sharp, jagged piece of metal with 1500watts of power at your face. If anyone thinks they want to be holding it with their hand at this point, they won’t have any fingers to argue the case with as they get dragged into the blade. Most wood blades have a positive hook angle and larger teeth. This exponentially increases the likelihood of the saw “grabbing” it and throwing it within the blade revolution. Take note that metal cutting blades have slower RPM limits. This saw may not operate within that slower limit. This risk is a user beware one. For infrequent use on cutting metals, this might work. Anyone considering this should please do their research. No offence implied or intended, just trying to spread practical advise to anyone considering this.
yes , but you'd have to buy a new blade - lidl have them in sometimes £4 - ish or other brands around the £10-ish range. --- because the blade as bought is only for wood chopping.
Then cancelled oos
