Carbide Saw Blade Specification Manual P.2: Rip Saws
Carbide Saw Blade Specification Manual P.2
This manual consists of three sections which permits the user to specify, purchase, inspect, and maintain saws to a set of standard procedures. The sections are:
1. Standards for the Precision Manufacture of Circular Rip Saws
This section considers each design element, defines specifications, and describes how quality assurance measurements may be made.
2. Equipment for Quality Control
A description of commercially available and custom-built tools. These tools are useful for determining the quality of a finished saw and for verifying that manufacturing specifications are met.
3. Summary of Design Specifications
Standardized forms for both guided and strob saws are included. These forms simplify the ordering and (later) checking of saws. Pads of these forms are available for your use.
Standards for the Precision Manufacture of Circular Rip Saws
The specifications below apply to saw manufacture in general, and are in addition to more detailed requirements that follow.
Following rough fabrication (which includes cutting, punching, boring, and grinding), the stress in plates shall be relieved and final hardness attained.
All edges shall be broken, made free of burrs and square with the sides of the plate.
The carbide notch surfaces shall be clean and bright prior to brazing.
No sandblasting shall be permitted on the sides of the plate.
The saw shall exhibit good workmanship, be clean, and free of rust.
Saws shall be suitable packaged to prevent them from damage during shipment.
Note: “Strob” is the correct spelling as these saws are named after the inventor and not the physics term.
