BANDSAW OPERATIONS - OD1646 - LESSON 1/TASK 1
ANGULAR BLADE GUIDE ATTACHMENT.
(c) Miter Guide. The miter guide attachment is a device used to support
and guide workpieces to the bandsaw blade so that the workpiece may be cut
at a specific angle. The attachment can be swiveled and locked to guide the
workpiece at any convenient angle.
On the three bandsaw machine models
discussed in this subcourse, the mitering attachment is side mounting. When
not in use, the attachment is swung up to the right and around on the slide
rod so that it hangs below the table. Figure 11 on the following page shows
a typical side mounting mitering attachment.
