How do I distinguish metal from masonry discs?

To distinguish between the two different applications on the Diablo discs locate the information bar on the right side of the product. Diablo discs for metal applications contains a blue information bar with metal icon. Diablo discs for masonry applications contain a green information bar with a masonry icon.

How do I get the best results with my saw blade?

Maintain a proper feed rate. Feeding too slow causes burning of the material. Feeding too fast can be dangerous and produces a poor dull cut. If you experience burning on one side of the cut you should check and adjust the saw's alignment. Consult your saw owner's manual for alignment instructions.


Top

What is the recommended blade depth for best results?

For best results, set your saw so that one half of a carbide tip extends above the material to be cut.


Top

How do I know the proper sand belt direction?

All Diablo sanding belts are bi-directional and will work in either direction.


Top

What's the difference between a combination blade and a general purpose blade?

Combination blades are designed to crosscut and rip. General Purpose blades can be used for most wood cutting applications including plywood, laminated wood and melamine.
