Diamond Blade Tips
- Open up the diamonds on a new blade with shallow cuts in soft, abrasive material (eg. limestone). This will stop the blade chattering or skipping on the first job.
- For normal cutting, multiple shallow cuts (step cuts) are better than one single deep cut.
- Do not force the blade. Forcing or twisting the blade can cause bluntness, excessive wear, overheating, distortion and segment damage.
- Do not side grind.
Diamond Blade Troubleshooting
Glazing – As a diamond blade is used, the bond wears, exposing more diamonds that continue cutting. If the bond does not wear back, then eventually there is no diamond exposed, so the blade will slow down and stop cutting. The cutting edge of the blade will feel smooth. This is known as glazing or polishing
Possible causes are:
- The bond is too hard for the material it is cutting – select the correct blade.
- Too much water is being used (sometimes unavoidable if the tile cracks easily with heat)
- The machine is not powerful enough for the specification (usually experienced more with professional blades and saws)
- The blade has been mounted with the rotation arrow the wrong way.
