Table Saw Maintenance

The one who harbors his work and the tool he needs to be ready to take care of the tool, that is to maintain it. When we need some tools we need to put it in a place where we can always find it, that is, it has its place. When we find it, it should be in a function, which means that after the previous work was cleaned, lubricated if necessary and sharpened.

Prior to all maintenance and cleaning work, it is necessary to remove the mains plug. More extensive maintenance or cleaning work than those described in this area can be performed exclusively by qualified persons. Damaged parts, primarily safety devices, should only be replaced by the original parts, as parts that are not checked and approved by the manufacturer can cause inconsistent damage. After maintenance and cleaning, all safety devices must be put into operation and checked.
Replace the saw blade
Immediately after cutting, the saw blade can be very hot and there is a risk of burns. Leave the heated saw blade to cool down. Do not clean the saw blade with flammable liquids. Risk of cuts exists while the saw leaf is stationary. Use gloves when replacing the saw blade. Be sure to pay attention to the direction of rotation of the saw blade during assembly. Use only suitable saw blades. In the case of unsuitable or damaged sheets of the saw, centrifugal forces may result in the explosive ejection of parts.
It is necessary to regularly remove the dirt and dust from the machine in order to avoid any damage, to corrosion, to breaking the blades or other parts, and to the dirt of the material to be used.
How to stay safe
The most important is that you should never stand in front of the line with a blade and that you should always unplug your saw when you want to change the blades. Important to remember is also to never reach your hand over a blade and to always wear eye protection. The following information is here for your protection. These rules are quite basic and if you want to use a saw they are something that should get under your skin because without basic knowledge you cannot be prepared enough to use and maintain a table saw.

First of all, you need to make sure that the fence is really good locked into place, and you need to check that after you set it in the desired width. You need to keep woodwork down with a firm grip while you push it past the blade. It doesn’t matter how much time you have, never push wood faster than the machine can manage to cut it. Never! That is how most of the accidents happen, and that is how your wood will get destroyed and will no more be usable. Not to mention, that is how you will damage your table saw, and that damage can be beyond repair.

How To Avoid Mistakes In Furniture Painting

There are many tips on how to paint furniture, and with a few tricks, a little patience and paint, you can really make your old furniture more beautiful. But following the recommended steps you will face many problems very quickly: the paint is peeled, the finish layer is not smooth, the balloons on the protective coating…
Have you ever been bothered by old furniture that has lost its luster and is no longer fashionable? With a little imagination and skills of old chests, tables or cupboards you can make very modern striking pieces.
Preparing the furniture
In many tutorials, it is claimed that the furniture grinding before painting is not necessary. Also, on many primers and painters, there is an instruction that it is not necessary to grind. However, the sanding of all surfaces with sandpaper is necessary.

Be careful not to damage the surface. The goal is to make the surface only a bit rough so that the base layer has something to “catch”. If there are old layers of paint on the furniture, it is necessary to use coarse sandpaper granulation and to sift in more detail. After that, you need to remove all the dust off your surface with a nice clean cloth.
Basic color – primer
Use a small sponge roller to apply the basic protective layer. Use the brush for the hardest parts available. Let it dry according to the canned instructions. When the primer has dried, squeeze the surfaces with fine sandpaper 220-240 and clean them with a cloth.
Painting your furniture
Apply three thin layers of semi-colored paint with a small roller. Wait between each painting to dry the layer. It is important to scrub the surface before the next painting if it has excess colors or wood residues and clean each time with a clean cloth. It is very important that the cloth be clean and remove any hardness before applying the finishing layer that is transparent.
Apply the finishing layer
Using a new roller, apply a thin, water-based shielding coating. Apply the coat very lightly so that there are no balloons and the surface is smooth. Let it dry for 72 hours before use.
How to make wooden furniture shiny
Your wood furniture will get a completely new glow. All you have to do is mix two tablespoons of olive oil with two teaspoons of lemon juice, and shake it well in a bowl. Apply on the cloth these ingredients and apply them to the furniture. Allow the wood to absorb for about 10 minutes and then again spray the greased surfaces with a clean cloth.

This oil does not stick and there is no smell, and these two ingredients are healthy, so you do not have to worry about having your inhabitants breathe in some of the harmful substances. This combination will clean your furniture but will also feed it. In addition, olive oil is a useful ingredient for concealing small scratches on the furniture.
