Keeping Your Planer Blades in Great Working Condition

Keeping Your Planer Blades in Great Working Condition

As a rule of thumb; planer blades tend to be sturdy and resistant to heavy duty work – as long as they are properly maintained. If they are not, then understandably the work that you carry out will suffer as a result. Understanding why it is important to properly maintain your woodworking tools is the most important step to take.

82mm planer blades are just one example of woodworking tools that need to be kept sharp. If they are not, your end product will suffer significantly. The result for taking care of maintenance issues can only be positive; and will help you achieve the best possible end product result. It will also showcase your knowledge of issues surrounding in quality control and help you impress in the process.

No Better Place to Get Your Planer Blades

Here at Knife-Point we stock an entirety of different blades.

We are confident that you will come back to us time and time again; thanks to our dedicated, experienced team. You can view all of our products here, at www.knife-point.co.uk.

Without understanding both the importance of keeping your planer blades in good condition – and also how best to utilize it – not only will your planer blade not work properly, it will also subsequently result in you being unable to produce a high standard product.

Understanding Planer Blades Maintenance

If ones of your planer blades requires maintenance, then you will need to follow a number of simple steps to carry out the job successfully. There are a number of resources available to tell you how you can do it best; which include guidelines on using an oiled whetstone, the importance of removing chips on the blade and ensuring that the blade is worked with a pushing action and not a pulling action

When it comes to understanding whether your product needs to be maintained, it is helpful to do your research (we often provide advice through this blog). Perhaps the best way to test the sharpness of the blade is by tilting it up to the light. By observing how the light reflects off the bevel of the blade, you can gauge its condition. If the blade is sharp, then the bevel will appear flat.

Take Time to Maintain Your Planer Blades

It is useful to wait a few seconds when you start up your planer to carry out work. This enables the motor to reach full speed; and the blade can now be eased into contact with the material. From this point, you can push forward at a steady pace, ensuring that you continue to apply pressure on the front of the planer as it meets your piece of work.

When actually implementing the use of planer blades proper balance is essential. Distribution of body weight – by keeping your feet apart in a comfortable position – enables you to maintain the closest control when using a wood planer. Naturally, the end product will emanate accuracy and quality as a result.

 

Increase Brand Exposure with a Projecting Shop Sign Sheffield

leave a comment

Projecting shop signs are very effective for shops that are located on a narrow street. For shops in this position, their main shop sign may not be as visible as signs on shops located on a wider street, reducing the amount of passersby that are exposed to the brand.

Projecting shop signs can, therefore, be an excellent solution, as they protrude from the building at an angle, enabling it to be seen at a distance from either end of the road. A projecting outdoor sign is a great addition to your main shop sign, and another measure to ensure that your sign doesn’t get lost in the array of other business signage around it.

Illuminated Projecting Shop Sign Sheffield

This projecting shop sign for a hairdresser in Sheffield called Halo is a great example of the impact that the illumination of a sign can make. This particular sign projects from the wall seamlessly, with the bracket carefully hidden to create a modern, simplistic effect.

Illuminated projecting signs are also great for increasing the visibility of your business at night time, or in times of bad weather and poor visibility. The panels themselves can be manufactured in a range of sizes, and the graphics and text can be printed directly onto both sides for maximum advertising opportunity.

In this case, the LED lights have been placed inside the PVC box, creating an impressive glow that really makes an impression. The effect of the light behind the letters is very striking; especially as the last letter in the word HALO is white, allowing the light to shine very brightly in comparison to the other elements of the sign.
