My saw blades by Leuco just scream while running.Leuco techs. told me years ago to spray foam around the blade in the throat.Ha,ha…not doing that.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a quieter blade?This saw blade is 12"-14" with 30mm.bore.
I have sold a lot of german made sawblades. And believe me height does matter. And also Upm. Leuco is, for so far I know, using good steel for their blades. But their are a lot of steel species. Every blade has tension. And by the production of a good saw blade they make the sawblade paralel. At youtube “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUtOMIlv2ok”; (50 seconds and 350 seconds) you can see the tensioning. Mostly German blades need a bigger flange. I could not find it at the Leuco site but on the Leitz site “http://lexicon.leitz.org/productdetail.php?productid=057502&pgid=53480&chash=7cbc86”; you can see that your 3" (75 mm) flange according the Leitz rules is to small. This is a along grain saw and I don,t know your type of blade.
Thanks Dutchy, very interesting, I will check into the possibility of a larger diameter saw blade flange for this saw This flange is pressed into the bore of the blade and rides on the arbor.Hopefully a larger diameter, if possible, flange does not reduce the saws depth of cut.
A bigger flange normally reduce the depth of cut. Saw machine makers always want a big cutting depth and that is why they make the flange as small as “possible”. Leuco and Leitz are industrial saw blades and a blade of 8" is made to saw a max of 2" wood.
Note: You can make a smail flange on your saw, but only when the sawblade is made for a little flange. In this case the blade is tensioned especially for this flange. A Festool saw and blade is a good example.
When you use a bigger flange always a chamber is needed!!!
