Blade breaker


While waiting for timber to build more hives, I decided to cut out some stuff and get rid of the clutter.

There was some Mahogany with patterns already drawn and a piece of unknown wood.

This small unknown piece was heavier than the Mahogany at double the size. Not sure what it is.

Note – the Hegner Polycut was on its slowest speed.

I started on the heavy piece first using a new Pegas #12 skiptooth blade. Was scarcely into the cut and there was lots of smoke and burning smell.

Then ‘dwang’ as the blade broke. (polite words were uttered …….)

Changed the blade to a #12 no name and decided the Mahogany needed attention.

Nice easy cut except for some burning around sharp corners. #12’s are not ideal to do a 180 degree turn.

Here is the Mahogany showing the cut outs.

Here is the other hard-rock-blade-breaker.

I will post some of the stuff cut out in another thread.
