Cold Saw: Blade Broke, Awaiting Replacement Blade and Part

The blade on the Cold Saw broke into pieces. I will investigate how this could happen while we await a new blade. It will be offline until that arrives.

Update: we will need a replacement part for the saw as well. No ETA yet, but it is likely longer than that for just a blade.

Update: the replacement part has been ordered. Unfortunately, it is literally coming on a slow boat from China, which will take several weeks. However, Joe and I are confident we can machine a temporary replacement for it. I’ve already acquired the necessary raw material.

That means the limiting factor in getting this back online is getting a blade. The ETA for sharpening the old blades and for getting a new one is the same, hopefully late next week.

There will be a few procedure updates for the cold saw once it’s back online to address what happened. Look for announcements here and big glaring signs on the saw as well.

We are still awaiting parts from overseas.

The Cold Saw is back online with a replacement part that I machined. But there are new procedures to be followed, as explained here: Cold Saw: Back Online, but with Updated Procedures
