Title Noise reductions at band re-saws
Bibliographic information Woodworking National Interest Group, Health and Safety Executive, 14 Cardiff Road, Luton LU1 1PP, United Kingdom, 1990. 2p. Illus. 4 ref.
Abstract The noise generated by band re-saws (typically over 85 dB(A)) can be reduced by maintaining the machine and blade in good condition. Factors affecting the blade vibration level (the main source of noise) are listed along with advice on how the difference in noise levels when cutting and when idling can be used as a good indicator of the condition and adjustment of the machine and blade.
