As you know, we are huge proponents of diamond blades here at Blades Direct. They are, in fact, the highest quality of blades available on the market today. Versatile in nature, they can be used on both wet and dry jobs and they can cut a broad range of materials, they are also incredibly fast.
Understanding this, there are some very basic “do’s” and “don’ts” of which you should be aware if you are going to work with diamond blades. Below we shared some tips that we believe are important with regard to these blades.
Diamond Blade “Do’s”
-Inspect your blades on a regular basis to make sure they are in top-notch condition!
-Ensure you are using the correct diamond blade; one that has been manufactured for the materials you wish to cut.
-Utilize safety equipment, including goggles, safe shoes and more when working.
-Store your blades carefully; dry areas are the best, particularly those with a relatively constant temperature.
-Check all aspects of the blade and the saw prior to use, make sure none of your equipment needs to be replaced.
Diamond Blade “Don’ts”
-Operate the blade at excessive speed; follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Force the blade when cutting; this can cause considerable damage.
-Use the blade with saws not designed for use with diamond blades.
-Change blades while the saw is running. Make sure all power is off.
-Engage a wet blade on a dry project. Use the blade as it was intended.
As we said, diamond blades are incredible. And, when used appropriately, can bring value to both the homeowner conducting a DIY project and professionals and their clients alike.
