It helps carpenters can cut wood quickly, accurately and smoothest. But in the process of using saws. We may encounter a lot of problems related to saw blades such as broken saws, warping, worn blades, … Many people encounter these problems, they think the saw is broken. They have lost a large amount of money to buy a new device without knowing the errors can be overcome.

Therefore, in this article, we will explore the errors that you may encounter in the process of using circular saw blades and have a reasonable solution.

Problems and remedies when using circular saw blades.

The saw blade is cracked

This is the most common case and we would like to mention it first. The reason may be due to the wrong step of the tooth or the excessive sawing of the blade during the cutting of the material. It is also possible that the speed at which you put the material into the saw is too fast for the speed allowed.

Therefore, before selling saws to customers. Manufacturers need specific advice on the teeth of saws, the type of saw blades and the sawing capacity that can be made to best suit customer needs. There will be no perfect solution to this problem unless you are carefully advised by the engineers.

Saw cutting slowly

Many customers responded why their saw blades bought so slowly. In fact, the cutting speed depends greatly on cutting materials and saws, not saw blades. So, when you see the speed cut slowly, you should review your saw, see if they are damaged. If the saw is completely normal, review the compatibility between the saw blade and the saw. If they are not compatible, then both the cutting speed and the product quality are not standard.

Saws are easy to corrode

Worn teeth are also a common phenomenon that people use saw blades to reflect. When saw blades are easy to corrode, you should review the compatibility between saw blades and cutting materials. Not all saw blades can cut all kinds of materials, especially hard materials. Each saw blade model is only compatible with a certain group of materials. Therefore, you need to be careful when choosing materials to cut accordingly.

Risk of unsafe when using saws

After talking about some causes and measures to avoid damage to saw blades. I will talk about some of the risks of insecurity when using the machine so that you can prevent it.

Therefore, while manipulating you need to equip yourself with protective equipment such as glasses, gloves, protective clothing, … to avoid affecting your health later.

Splashes: due to pieces of tools, machined materials, saw blades that are not tightly fitted can splash. It poses a danger to users who can be injured like broken hands, feet, … Therefore. You must check the machine carefully before using

Preserving circular saw properly

Next, I will provide you with some measures for you to use the saw in a long-term way.

Secondly, Keep the saw in the open space, avoid moisture.

DIY white-washed patten floors

Well, what a weekend – need another weekend to get over the long weekend! But thrilled with the results of our newly white-washed, patterned floorboards in the Sunroom. If you missed it, here was the photo that inspired this look here. And the best thing, Mr B loves the floors!


This was back-breaking stuff, but worth every ache and pain. A whole day of prepping and sanding the floorboards in the sunroom, mudroom and bar area. Having previously been an outside verandah, it had some serious coats of ‘weathshield paint’ but surprisingly the floorboards were in great condition.

Clean up: Cleaning up the fine dust left by the sander was quite the task – surprisingly how much is actually produced when sanding floorboards (3 buckets and one very full vacuum cleaner). We then wiped down every surface – walls, skirting boards etc and gave then wiped down with a damp cloth to pick up any extra dust – vital to ensure the next step didn’t involve dust in the paint or varnish.

Create diamond lines: Whether it was the complete exhaustion or too much dust in the brains, but calculating how big the diamonds and diagonals took a while – a sit down and cup of tea helped us to see the (quite obvious) light! We measured out each point with a nail, and then used string to link each diagonal point together. Once all the string was in place, we then went along with painters tape and taped the outside of each diamond – again a very time consuming task – but worth it!

Being painting: I used the Porters Paint White Wash, which we applied with paint brushes. Allowing the diamond to dry for 3-4minutes and then wiping it down with a clean cloth. This allowed me to rub the paint into the grain have really get that ‘white wash’ look.

Reveal: The paint dried very quickly and once we had reached the end, I went back and gently removed all of the tape – voila!

Clear satin varnish: Mr B started on giving the bar and mudroom a coat of Cabots Clear Polyutherine Floor coat (satin finish) and just before bed we did one coat of the diamonds. Followed by 2 more coats on Sunday. Now we are leaving the floors for 72hrs before we can place furniture back in.

We were all amazed with the final results and how it made the room so much lighter and helped it feel wider and larger. Can’t wait to spend time in this room, it brings a smile to my face each time I walk past.
