- How tight should a saw blade be? I seem to break many!
I tension the blades (0/3) by making the saw frame about 1/4"
(6mm) longer than the blade. The blade should ping if you flick
- What each size blade is used to cut? (ring shafts)
- How best to use cutting burs and which kind to use?
You can buy assortments or several sizes of burs of various
shapes. Typically I grab whater comes to hand that will do the
job- small flame, cylinder, ball burs, all have their uses- just
experiment and you will soon have favotites. There is a book
about the flex shaft.
