BANDSAW OPERATIONS - OD1646 - LESSON 1/TASK 1
THE MITER GUIDE.
(d) Rip Fence. The rip fence accessory helps in making even, straight
cuts. A typical rip fence is shown in figure 12 on the following page. In
making a long cut with a rip fence as a guide, check to be sure that the saw
band used is not worn on one side.
This will cause the work to wander
relative to the rip fence guide.
(e) Disk Cutting Attachment. The disk cutting attachment (figure 13 on
page 18) permits cutting true circles, either internally or externally, or
any diameter from 2 1/2 to 30 inches. This attachment is bolted to the post
with capscrews and washers.
(f) Screw Feed Attachment. The screw feed device (figure 14 on page 18)
is a machine tool attachment on some makes of bandsaw machines, and is a
component part of other bandsaw machines. The screw feed accessory is used
for precision contour sawing of heavy work. It is a hand-operated method of
feeding the workpiece into the bandsaw blade or band file.
The device is
used with a work holding jaw to feed the workpiece into the blade at angles
other than 90, to the blade.
