Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Newbie question about saw lubricants
I am not familiar with your saw but it's sounds like just by the name that your saw should take a 10" blade. But just to be sure/safe take all the necessary measurements from center of axle or arbor shaft to all possible contact points including the guard that covers the blade, especially the pivot point of the guard. I have found that I can run the 6 1/2" blade from Inland on my 6" saw. I don't however encourage anyone else doing this. In my case I had to increase the arbor hole size to 5/8" so that it would fit my arbor shaft this can be a bit tricky to do and maintain absolute center, also I had to notch the guard at the pivot point to allow for clearance. Inland only has a 1/2" hole available in their blades. I did this to allow for a slightly deeper cut plus it gives me more cutting surface from the blade itself. It would be nice if they would offer the option for 1/2" w/bushing or 5/8" on their blades but they don't. To get back to the point here, check and double check for proper clearance.
