Step 4: New Blade! (Sans Westley Snipes)

Here is a pic of the new blade (it has a protective rubber coating over the teeth right now. Remove the rubber coating, but make sure to not place the blade on a metal surface. Our shop happens to use carbide blades, but it is a general rule to not place the blade on a metal surface to avoid dangers of chipping a blade. On that note, make sure to inspect the blade for any defects. If the blade is defective, DO NOT USE THE BLADE.
Interesting info. <br> <br>When you say &quot;...make sure to inspect the blade for any defects...&quot; you could be a bit more precise. I don't know what defects to search in a blade as these.
great question! <br> <br>you are looking for cracks in the blade, both large and micro. You are also looking for chipped or missing teeth. You are probably not going to come across any other sort of defects, but if something does not look right, it is always best to try and contact the manufacturer before you use it.
