The "first CUT is the deepest"

Recommended Posts

A little help please

I am just starting my ECHO cross section and was wondering if anyone had a jig for setting the hight of a circular saw blade for use later.

I am Lifting the blade up and watching till the timber lifts in a previous cut to re set the depth but I feel this is a little hit and miss and getting a calibrated square in by the blade and trying to read the scale is very hard as the increments are very close at the start of a metal ruler 

Thanks Andy

Hi Andy

If you are using a close clearance insert in the table,I find the depth gauge on the end of a digital vernier handy.Rock the blade back and forth by hand to ensure you are measuring the cutting edge at top dead centre(obviously disconnect power before hand etc etc)


Kind Regards
