Panel Saws are a type of sawing machine that cut flat sheets or timber slabs into sized parts. These types of sawing machines can either be vertical or horizontal. Although, typically, horizontal panel saws are most common, you can also find vertical panel saws that occupy less floor space commonly available in today’s market.

HOW TO SHARPEN PANEL SAWS?

Maintaining the sharpness of your panel saw’s cutting blades will keep it running smoothly. Sharpening your saw blades is necessary to keep them in good working order. Because cutting with a dull blade demands substantially more work than cutting with a sharp blade, the results are valuable in a variety of ways. Although, it’s always best to have panel saw spare parts, you still have to know how to sharpen your panel saws manually, as it’s all part of your panel saw maintenance.

Setting, jointing, file, and stoning are the four panel saw tips and essential steps in sharpening your panel saw blade. Your saw blades will be ready for anything you have in store for them if you follow each of these instructions in order. Also, whenever you work, follow the standard panel saw safety rules.

  • Setting

The right and left projection of the teeth from the saw plate is known as the set of a saw. The breadth of the kerf is determined by the saw’s setting, which also helps prevent the saw from binding up during the cut. Setting the teeth of your saw may not be necessary, therefore it’s crucial to assess it first. To position the panel saw, place it in a vice with the panel saw blades about 2 inches above the jaws of the vice. Move your saw set tool along the saw one side at a time, matching the teeth on one side to the proper size for the panel saw blade, then flip the saw around the vice and repeat the operation for the teeth skipped during the first half of the process.

  • Jointing

Jointing a saw ensures that all of the teeth are the same height, as well as generating a flat facet at the point of each tooth that serves as your panel saw guide rails throughout the filing process. Keep the saw firmly in the vice, with about 2 inches of blade above the jaws, to execute the jointing process. With both hands, grip the mill file and place it on the teeth line at the heel. Apply moderate pressure to the file as you run it down the tooth line in the direction of the saw’s toe, until you see a flat facet on the point of each tooth. Two or four passes are usually sufficient for most panel saws.

  • Filing

The filing procedure aligns the geometry of the panel saw blade’s edges and varies slightly depending on whether the blade is a ripsaw or a crosscut saw blade. A brief discussion of each is offered for the sake of being thorough.

  • Stoning

The stoning of your panel saw is the final stage in sharpening it. Place the tool flat on your bench, with the handle dangling over the edge. To even the set and eliminate the burrs formed by filing, use light pressure while running the stone along with the teeth down the length of the saw. Rep the process with the other side of the saw. One pass per side is usually sufficient, though if the saw is over-set, more may be required.

When moving through the panel saw blade, it’s a good idea to keep count of the number of strokes you take on each bevel and keep them consistent. Your panel saw will cut uniformly if the bevel and height of the teeth on your blades are consistent.

HOW ACCURATE ARE PANEL SAWS?

A vertical panel saw will provide years of trouble-free, accurate performance when installed and commissioned by factory certified specialists. Only half of the tale is accurate. The cut quality is equally crucial, and the panel saws excel in this area as well. Some of the versions we sell have a specialized scoring unit, similar to those seen on the panel saw with sliding table. These should be thoroughly examined, as they are frequently nothing more than static knives.

 

WHICH PANEL SAW TO BUY?

  • Capacity of professional saw blades to ensure the cleanest and safest cuts, woodworkers, sign-makers, and others who use panel saws to cut a variety of materials need the ability to employ a choice of professional saw blades.
  • Rugged guide system is the core of the panel saw is the guide system. To achieve straightness, concentricity, and smoothness, quality guides tubes should be made from specifically constructed steel tubing.
  • The backbone of any panel saw is the one-piece welded frame that supports the panels. This is crucial for the machine’s alignment, accuracy, and safety.
  • Factory assembly and alignment for getting guaranteed cutting accuracy is one of the main reasons to acquire a quality panel saw. To meet high specifications, panel saws should be installed and aligned at the manufacturer by skilled specialists.
