Possible that the fence you are using is not on a true parallel line with the blade and as a result it is causing the wood to pull into the blade causing kickback. I would do an alignment procedure on the fence to make it as true to the blade as possible.

How can I use a gas pole saw?


Congratulations on getting you a new gas pole saw! A gas pole saw is undoubtedly the most powerful of pole saw types. It uses gas for operation, heavy-duty bars, and chains and is effective for a longer working period. Since it is the most powerful; you can put your faith for pruning heavier and larger branches and trees.
So, you have chosen rightly. But, it is a matter of concern, if you do not know how to use a gas pole saw. Let us help you with this matter.
BEFORE YOU START
  • Make sure that the pole saw is safe and prepared to be used. The faulty ones can lead to a serious accident.
  • Clear the area where you would use your pole saw and where the limbs would fall. Any hazard should be cleared at once.
  • Be aware of the weather because the windy or rainy weather can turn your pruning into a dreadful experience.
  • Cut only one limb at a time
  • Avoid cutting branches that are thicker than 8 inches. Take expert's help in this matter.
  • Be aware of the kickbacks.
  • Always maintain the right balance and base. Hold the saw firmly and stay at your place rigidly.
These instructions should be taken into account before the start of trimming. After you follow the instructions given above, it is time to move towards pruning process. The steps below lay out how to use a gas pole saw.
STEP 1 As you hold the grip of your pole saw and make a balance of your position, make few jump cuts underneath the branch you want to cut off. Jump cuts are a necessary technique which is used before the final cut. It reduces the weight of the branch that makes the final cut easier. It can be physically challenging to cut from underneath. So, always pick a pole saw equivalent to your weight bearing capability.
STEP 2 Extend the height of the pole saw based on the height of the branch. Hold the pole saw vertically, take it up to the branches away from the ground and never forget to hold it properly. Adjust its position and let it rest on the branches. In the meantime, you can ensure your position too. Always keep the pole saw at your chest level.
STEP 3 Now, begin to cut perpendicular to the limb and try to make deep cuts as much as you can. Deep cuts will let you make the final cut and other cuts easier. It will also allow you to make faster cutting strokes. Readjust your position, and the pole saw if you face any trouble.
STEP 4 The last step is all about your safety. Check where the limbs are falling and move from that place as early as possible.
Do not lose hope if you fail the first time. Keep trying until you reach your full potential. Clean the work area after trimming is done. So, this is how you can use a gas pole saw. Keep pruning and stay safe!

Mbs45 blade undercuts out of square, twist in 2x2 1/8" tubing


I believe Black bull band saw is a Taiwan imported saw. They are even cheaper to HF band saws. This band saw have so many issues; make sure you align the guides, tune it up and use good bi metal band saw blades. I suggest you use the Haltbar 601 bi metal blade. I'm using Haltbar and I'm getting really nice cut.

Jammed my 6230 bandsaw during a cut and now it won't start. Are their fuses I can replace?


Go to Milwaukee Tool website and try to check if you can download a manual or electrical diagram there. You can call or email them. Check the motor capacitor.
Are you using an old or new band saw blade? If it's old/dull, try different blade. If it's new, the weld might be really bad. Old Blade and Bad weld can cause the blade to jump off. I purchased band saw blades on www.sawblade.com . Great quality blades; they have porta band blades. Call them.

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

Wuich way should the teeth be facing on radial arm saw with or against rotation?


As you face the saw, the edge of the blade closest to you is going down. The teeth should be pointing down also. On any circular saw (table saw, miter saw, etc.) the teeth of the saw should point in the direction of rotation. It might seem odd because as you draw the radial arm saw toward you, the saw wants to "climb" and pull itself along through the material. Some saws are equipped with a damping device to prevent the saw from lurching forward, most are not. You need to pull the saw toward yourself slowly and steadily to keep it from climbing. good luck

I purchased the new Ridgid tile saw named " The Beast". Initially it looked like a great saw buy after cutting a few ceramic tiles I began to notice that it cuts with a slight curve. I could not find any...


Its either the speed of the blade ( mine came with its speed at half rate), or its the crappy blade they give you with the saw. If a cut is bowing your blade is having a tough time with material. This often happens with tough porcelain tiles and not using a porcelain blade.

Why my chain saw always cuts at an angle


a lot of people have this problem with a chain saw and cant get a strate cut, most of the time its down to them trying to force the saw through the wood and in doing this the saw cuts around corners as there pull is not square to the cut,, let the saw do the work, not you, if your pulling on the saw to make it cut well then it has a very dull or blunt blade,,,is there any side to side "rock" on the chain in this new bar? how have you sharpend it? dose the chain have the same pitch on both side's? are all the teeth cutting at the same depth? if its cutting around corners it could still be the chain pitch worn out, if so the chain is past its best as well, but most of the time its all down to how hard and how squarely your pulling on the blade when cutting,,,the first thing in logging to lurn is to cut squarely no easy task that! just dont force the saw to cut!! it will cut just as fast or faster without forseing it,, if all this still dont get you cutting right change the chain for a new one,,,the only hard work with a chain saw is holding it up to the tree and humping it around not cutting with it, thats the blade's job to do so the faster you try to make it cut the more out of true the cut go's as all your doing is bending the bar out of alinement,,all in all, its two hands for the job and a very gentle pressure on the saw, start the cut with the blade spinning and dont stop the blade in the wood, cut right through

MBS 240/E proxxon bandsaw


the 24 TPI is the one to use. It sounds as if the blade is running to fast and over heating the blade and causing it to lose the temper in the balde steel. Try slowing the blade speed down if you can. Also you can try putting some cutting oil on the balde to stop it from clogging up. You can also rig up a small air line to blow on the cutting area to cool it down and remove the metal chips. I've also applied some wax to the blade every so often. A candle will work for this too. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr

There s a huge amount of kickback when starting the saw. its very aggressive.the power isn't delivered calmly anymore


That is actually normal.. As the motor brushes get warn - it will kick on a bit more abruptly.. The cause of the "kick" is from the initial centrifugal force - kind of like a gyroscope..

PLease dont forget to rate ;o)

Not cutting right - or at all


Depending on how much use the saw has gotten over the years the problem could be a very dull blade, worn out motor brushes, or a nearly worn out motor. The danger is that a power tool that is not working as it should is much more hazardous than a newer saw that is working properly.
