Question about Ace Hardware Ace Chop Saw Cut - Off Blade
Hi, Can anyone tell me how tight the blade should be on a Stihl 2 stroke cut off saw?
I know that normal abrasive wheels on bench grinders should only be gently nipped up as they self torque when the machine is run, does this apply to circular diamond or composite blades on these concrete cutting machines or should they be fully tightened up with a spanner?
And if they need to be tight that begs the question, how tight?
I'd appreciate any advice thanks
You've answered this yourself. The blade only needs to be nipped up enough to grip. If it slips, it will tighten. Thats why, some machines have a left hand thread, as they always rotate so as to tighten in the event of slippage.
If the blade slips under normal service, suggest you clean both blade and the flanges, and just do it up a little tighter next time.
