Default Re: CHEAP dry abrasive brick saw from Harbor Freight - On sale!

I bought a diamond blade. I plan to turn my extra table saw into a wet saw. Hope I keep the motor dry....may work dust free ....wouldn't use it on good new saw!
I'll let you know
tomorrow will be tested

Wow, check your rpm's. Every abrasive blade should have maximum speed in revolutions per minute printed right on the blade. Wood cutting table saws may exceed that: check before powering up.

Good thought. I would think it should work. This was not a cheap abrasive blade. Perhaps it is. I think of abrasive blades as those composite jobs nonetheless I appreciate the comment and will double check

update: The blade is rated 6110 rpm and the saw 4500 rpm ...well within tolerances

make sure the saw is grounded if you are going wet! This sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Might be a Darwin Award if you are not careful. How about putting it on a GFI circuit for good measure

Table saw:
works fantastic!! cuts accurately and well.
I put a styrofoam cooler over the motor and cut it to fit,...stays bone dry
Yes and it is on a gfi just like the mixer
