Q and A

Question : What materials can I cut with the Alpha® Vetro blade?

Answer : The Alpha® Vetro blade is primarily designed for glass cutting application.

Question : Can the Alpha® Vetro blade cut Safety Glass (Laminated Glass)?

Answer : Yes. Alpha® Vetro blades cut safety glass (laminated glass). There are many different types and thicknesses but you can cut all if used with water. This could be a typical application for shower door installers who need to trim a little bit at the job site.

Question : Which way do I install the Alpha® Vetro on my tool?

Answer : The blade direction is printed on the front of the blade. Install the blade so that the blade will follow this direction. If the front of the blade is no longer legible, a directional arrow is embossed into the back of the blade. As a last resort, examine the diamonds. The bond tail behind each diamond should be pointing the opposite direction of blade rotation. If the blade is installed incorrectly, the bond tails will reverse direction, which may cause some premature wear

Question : Can the Alpha® Vetro blade cut tempered glass?

Answer : No. Tempered glass will shatter as soon as the blade cuts the material and we do not recommend cutting.

Question : Can I cut Onyx using the Alpha® Vetro blade?

Answer : This blade is also highly recommended for cutting Onyx since the fine diamonds within the blade's matrix will minimize the amount of chipping.

Question : Can I use this blade for dry application?

Answer : No. Wet cutting diamond blades must be used with water to prevent excessive heat build up during cutting. Using water on the blade also reduces dust and helps enhance the cutting performance and life. A continuous water flow is critical. Using "wet" blades without water even for a few seconds will cause excessive heat and blade damage.

Question : The speed of my cut is slowing down. What can I do to improve it?

Answer : The diamonds are rounding over or glazing causing the blade to loose its cutting ability. You need to re-dress the blade using a soft abrasive material such as a dressing stone or a concrete block.

Question : What is the maximum RPM at which I can run the Alpha® Vetro for Portable Rail Saw blade?

Answer : See specifications chart.

Question : What is the arbor size of the Alpha® Vetro blade for Portable Rail Saws?
