Accessories for Bandsaw Blades
Band Saw Blade Tension Gauge
Correct band tension is vital to ensure cut straightness. The RÖNTGEN tension gauge quickly and simply measures the exact blade tension while it is mounted on the band wheels. An optimal tension of 300 N/mm² is recommended for Bi-metal blades with 4% chrome backing strip. This will help to avoid off-square cutting through low tension or blade breakage and machine damage through excessively high tension.
Soluble oil coolant makes an important contribution to extended blade life, helping to lubricates saw blade tooth tips to reduce wear and remove excessive heat from the blade and workpiece. At a recommended oil concentration of 8% - 12%, the emulsion will perform both the lubrication and cooling tasks. The oil to water ratio is measured by the RÖNTGEN Refractometer and can be read off a scale visible through the eyepiece.
