Diamond Blade

Postby jim burchett » Wed Jan 04, 2017 3:46 pm

I have been sawing patternbars on my 10" wetsaw with a Husqvarna Diamond glass blade. Lately the bars 3\8x3\8. Are breaking quite a bit. Have water streams directed to the cut, there is not excessive vibration, blade is dressed frequently. Is it time for a new blade? How do you tell? The bars were well annealed 900 for 2 you then 25 per/hr to 800 75 to 700 then off.Thanks

Have you dressed the blade recently?

Are you using a blade stabilizer? That made a big difference on my 10" saw.

dress it frequently with a stone from HIS, no stabilizers might try that..read somewhere you can use old 7" blades as stabilizers?
