Getting the diamond blade on MK sock we don't have the blade installed right now I walk over how we do it. So first things first you want to bring the whole carriage closer you and lock the carriage so it's not moving when you're adjusting the blade and tightening the blade. There's a big nut back here, this not allows you to move this up and up and down so I loosen this and I lift this up. On the other side there's another little wing that hear that tightens it up right here so that if this is too tight you can loosen up that wing but make sure you tighten it after the blade is on. Now what holds the blade are these two flanges this is the inner flange this is the outer flange and this nut on the end. This nut is a left-hand that meaning left lefty tidy righty loosey the opposite of what most nuts all. Whenever you're taking the blade off whenever you're taking the blade off you need to take off the inner flange this plan for the interplan clean this area and lubricated give it some lubricant then you could be in Flanders back in it's a tight fit slide it back on.

Now we're ready for the blade, one thing you'll notice on most blades is the harbor on a 10 inch blade is larger than our actual harbour bridge is going to bounce around here that's no good most blades come with these little brass rings for this brass ring fits in here perfectly into this space here and we get in there as much as we can kind of like to bonk it in a little bit and now see the blades on type should slide on a bit more there is really tight on there very very tight fit. Now one thing you'll notice is the direction on the blades the other direction is pointing that way but look at this, this arrow is pointing this way what does that mean the blade is actually on backwards the arrow on the guard has to match the arrow on the blade, so I'm going to slide the blade back off and I will flip it around so now I know the arrows match and it puts his blade back on such a bit difficult to get on. Now I put the outer flange on and I've got the nut when I put the outer flange on it generally wanted to be a centered as possible.

The center here and again remember this is the left hand not so the opposite you do with most nuts tight that we have two tools we have a special lens provided by MK and then we've got an Allen wrench also provided by NK we're going to actually secure these to the table so that they never get lost. Wrench goes on here allen wrench goes in the middle and left to tighten you don't want to over tighten anything that's pretty good right there you don't want to over tighten you wanna cross thread anything going to set these down put this in my technique both of the next remember there's two not one in the front one in the back. It's not touching the guard there's another wing that he has the back of the door and tight really tight that we know the guards not going anywhere no I can loosen this and I'm ready to cut that's all. How to adjust the blade height if we are using plywood to support the tile or slab we don't want to actually cut through the plywood, plywood is bad for this blade and it was this blatant basically just burn through the plywood won't actually do anything so if we have a piece of stone on top of this we wanted to cut through the stone but not through the plywood so we need to adjust the height of the blade.

There's a knob back here this loosens the blade and the other springs and immediately want to pull up so loud move up and down so just talking to use a smaller blades and that's why it goes down so low but really we want it to come down to the we wanted to come down the plywood but not through the plywood so we've got this loose I push it down push it down pretty hard so that I'm certain that it's touching plywood and then I tightening it and it just needs to be hand-tighten you don't have to go crazy with it just give it a good tightening and now we know that it's perfectly at the height of the plywood no higher no low it's gonna cut completely through the granite but it will not cut through the plywood not sitting. On this machine there's a few points of lubrication first of all this rail needs to be lubricated weekly you can spray some wd40 I'm here some spray lubricant. These Springs need to be lubricated back here again we just spray a little bit back here and then the cutting head which is behind the blade also needs to be lubricated when I show you how to take the blade off I show you behind the phalanges lubricated it doesn't hurt to spray lubricant up here behind the blade so it goes into the cutting head. Once everything is lubricated we have to keep the pump and water supply clean.
