What is it?

The Metal Mitre Saw is a mitre saw for metal.

It differs from many other saws in that it has a slow-turning saw-blade and a cooling mechanism, allowing to cut metal without getting it hot.

The results are that you can have very streight and smooth cutting edges.

The Metal Mitre Saw is located in the Welding area.

General pointers

Pay special attention to:

  • Getting caught by moving parts
  • Getting cut by sharp edges
  • Getting cut by flying splinters when something breaks
  • Falling when the floor gets slippery from cutting fluid
  • Damaging the machine when the object is not properly fixed and balanced
  • Only cut workpieces of appropriate materials (only un-hardened metal <800N/m)
  • Only cut workpieces of appropriate sizes (no sheet metal)
  • If your workpiece is of significant size or weight, balance it properly

Before using it

Check whether the machine is in proper order before using it.

If it is not, report such in the participants mailing list.

Make it in proper order yourself; we do not have 'service personnel' to do this for us.

Ask for help if needed.

Checks:

  • Is the machine stable
  • Is the blade not damaged and properly attached
  • Is there sufficient cooling liquid
  • Is the working area free of debris
  • Is the floor free from obstacles and cutting oil
  • Is there sufficient light to see what you are doing

While using it

  • Do not wear gloves, because they can pull your hands into the machine. And once your hands are caught by the machine, it is difficult to turn it off
  • Do not wear clothes or jewels that can get caught - including rings
  • Do wear safety classes for protection of splinters when something breaks
  • Make sure you know where the safety buttons are
  • Fix the workpiece with the clamp
  • Do not hold the workpiece with your hands while cutting
  • Do not put force on the handle while cutting
  • Keep checking whether the workpiece is properly fixed
  • Keep checking that no cutting fluid is spilled because the floor can become slippery

(Moer M27x2 draad, sleutel 38mm, leverancier https://www.porza.nl/product/machinesleutel-38-mm-bgs-34238)

The screw thread is left-turning, so to loosen it, turn the nut clockwise.

After replacing, the nut should be turned quite tight counter-clockwise.
