have recently aquired dw 320 ,have fully cleaned and reset but have no instruction manual. I just need info on correct methods for using especially rip sawing. Can anyone brighten my darkness.
Makes a change. there are countless HSE leaftlets, things etc which give totally bonkers and sometimes dangerous advise.I'd also strongly recommend reading the HSE leaflets "Safe working at woodworking machines" and "Safe use of manually operated cross cut saws" - they're free and the advice contained therein is good advice
Ever tried reading the one on cross cuts (or at least the bit pertinent to RASs), Matt? If you'd like to point out where it is wrong I'd be curious to know, especially as it seems to be along the same lines as Eric Stephenson's and Nigel Voiseys writings on the subject, not to mention current C&G/NVQ training. I'm not saying I agree with everything in every one, but they are generally quite a good starting point, especially if you are untrained.Matt1245":1ubl4gfd said:Makes a change. there are countless HSE leaftlets, things etc which give totally bonkers and sometimes dangerous advise.
Thats the kinda thing i'm on about. Ask any scafolder, and they'll tell you about it being more dangerous to be tethered to the scafolding, restiricting there movement etc.although in my experience they could be bl**dy dangerous
