Rules for Safe Operation
All material to be cut must rest flat on the
Do not back material out of a cut without first
turning off the saw. Failure to do so could result in the blade
being pulled off the wheels.
Never force material! If
the blade or the material does not feed smoothly, turn off the
saw, back the material out and ask for assistance.
Clamping, stabilizing gear, or jigs must be used
if irregular shapes are to be cut.
Do not stand to the right side of the saw. If the
blade breaks it could fly out in that direction.
If the blade breaks: turn the saw off then stand
back until the wheels stop spinning. Tell the shop technician that
the blade needs to be changed.
Make sure the blade of the band saw has come to a
complete stop before walking away from it. Never walk
away from running equipment!
Blade Guard Adjustment
The blade guard is adjusted by loosening the knob
located to the rear of the Wilton saw (arrow), or on the inside of
the upper wheel cabinet on the DoAll saw (arrow). Once loosened
the guard can be raised or lowered manually to its proper
position, approximately 1/4 inch above the top surface of the
material to be cut.
