  6. Loud Cutting Noise Prevention
    • Caused by extremely low sharpness blades which will also  lead to serious chipping.
    • Wrong RPM set.
  7. Warning & Caution Information
    • Do not operate saw machine unless proper saw guard is in place.
    • Always wear eye protection, safety mask, ear protection and comply with ANSI Z87.1 and all other safety guidelines as per ANSI B7.5 and all OSHA regulations i.e. 29 CFR 1910.94, 1910.95, 1910.133, 1910.215 & 1910.1000 covering handling, storage & inspection –mounting – safety guard – flanges – machine condition – ventilation & air contaminants, eye, ear & other personal protection information.
    • Always mount blade securely in proper rotation direction. Make sure that arbor and flanges are clean, and tighten nut securely.
    • Mount the blade on the correct diameter arbor shaft.
    • Do not use blade on saw machine that will exceed maximum recommended blade RPM.
    • Inspect the blade before each use for excessive wear, core crack, core flatness and arbor damage. Discard damaged or cracked blade.
    • Before performing any cutting operations, let the tool run for a few seconds without load. If blade wobbles, vibrates or unusual noise occurs, stop the tool immediately. Examine the blade for damage or incorrect mounting.
    • The diamond blade is intended for straight line cutting only. Cutting curves will cause stress cracks or fragmentation on the blade, resulting in possible injury to people in the vicinity.
    • Consult your saw operations manual for important safety instructions and warnings.
    • Failure to heed all safety instructions and warnings could result in serious injury.

  1. Core Bit Jumping Prevention
    • Angle your drill at about 45 degrees and take the drill to your stone and make an initial cut.
    • As soon as this cut has been made, slowly move your drill into a vertical position and continue to drill.
    • Always on the required RPM setting and with very little pressure. Let the drill do the work.
    • By drilling at an angle to make the initial cut this helps to prevent the drill bit from sliding and skittering across the surface of your stone.
  2. Coring Small Pieces
    • when drilling into a small, loose piece, clamp it down firmly before drilling. Do not hold the piece down with one hand while drilling, as the drill could slip and result injury. 
  3. Faster Coring & Longer Life
    • occasionally move the drill bit up and down to let in some water while drilling. This will help the water flow in and around the stone and wash out any debris.
    • This will also help to keep the drill bit and material cool. Overheating can cause the diamonds to dull or come off the drill bit and the stone to crack.
  4. Pressure Given while Coring
    • Please do not be tempted to speed up drilling process or apply further pressure. Some materials will take a long time to drill through but speeding up the drill or applying more pressure will shorten the life of drill bit by dulling or burning the diamond grit off.
  5. Debris Stuck Inside The Core
    • Drill the next piece of material and this usually dislodges it.
    • Use a wire brush to dislodge the stubborn core.
    • Most core bits having  holes around the sides protection, push a pin through the hole to try and dislodge the core.
  6. Warning & Caution Information
    • Always wear eye protection, safety mask, ear protection and comply with ANSI Z87.1 and all other safety guidelines as per ANSI B7.5 and all OSHA regulations i.e. 29 CFR 1910.94, 1910.95, 1910.133, 1910.215 & 1910.1000 covering handling, storage & inspection –mounting – safety guard – flanges – machine condition – ventilation & air contaminants, eye, ear & other personal protection information.

  1. Vibration Prevention
    • Set the right RPM as required.
    • Replace the old back up pads
  2. Marble Polishing
    • Place the marble slab on a work table / stand; make sure that it doesn’t move while working. It is not necessary but is a good idea to mask places near to the marble stone that can be harmed by water, masking tape is an excellent item to use in this purpose.
    • Carefully look on the marble slab edges. A profiled or saw cur edge may have some sharp and heavy scratches. Smaller grit sizes (50, 100, 200) are perfect to remove the heavy scratches and higher grit sizes (1500, 3000) are suitable to achieve shiny finishing
    • Attach the backing pads to wet polisher, ensure it is switched off before attaching it. Now you can begin the polishing process, open the diamond marble polishing kit and start with grit 50 polishing pad. Attach 50 grits to the backing pad slowly open water flow for wet polisher. Start polisher at low rpm and start polishing the marble edge with side-to-side motion, not more than four or five times. With lower grits, too many iteration can grind more than needed without adding any value to polishing finish.
    • After repeating the process with other small sizes grits, you can find a better smooth surface that are free from all saw marks, old sealant or wax. Use the grinder initially as low speed and as needed increase its speed slowly for faster polishing suitable for specific stone.
    • Ensure every single part of surface is polished with the grit before moving to higher grit. Any unpolished area with lower grit will result in sub optimal shine. A good way to ensure every single part of edge is polished is to wipe the edge surface with gently squeezed wet cleaning towel, and polish dry. The heat will evaporate the water where it is already polished. Ensure entire water evaporates then perform one more round of wet polishing. Move to the very next higher grit once the entire surface is polished.
    • Continue and repeat the processes with diamond marble polishing kit from lower grits to higher grit until you get your desired finish. Make sure that you have used grits from lower to higher, apply gradually all the grits 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500 and 3000 grits. Don’t use more than the double grits from the first diamond marble polishing pads. Maintain the regularity to using the polishing pads.
    • Use one by one pad until the polish starts to shine accurately. Then, vacuum the area as needed to remove any debris. You would find good shine at grit 800, and as you progress to grit 1500 and 3000 it will start getting mirror like finish.
  3. Granite Polishing
    • Place and clamp granite slab or tile on a work table secure it firmly using right size clamps. 
    • Carefully check the initial state of the granite slab edge surface being polished for the unevenness due to saw cut edge or profiled edge. Unless the surface is very smooth and even, always start the polishing process with grit 50. Smaller grit sizes (50, 100, 200) are recommended to remove the heavy scratches and higher grit sizes (1500, 3000) are perfect for final finishing.
    • Attach the rubber hook and loop backing pads to wet polisher rotating it clockwise. Before attaching the backing pads, make sure that it is switched off. We are now ready to start polishing steps. Open the diamond granite polishing kit and start polishing with grit 50 polishing pad. Attach 50 grits to the backing pad slowly open water flow for the wet polisher. Start polisher at low rpm and start polishing the granite edge with side-to-side motion, not more than four or five times. With lower grits, too many iterations can grind more than needed without adding any value to polishing finish. Use the grinder initially as low speed and as needed increase its speed slowly for faster polishing suitable for specific stone.
    • On successful completion of grits 50, moving to the very next higher grits 100. After successfully completing the step with small sizes grits 100, 200, you can find a much smooth surface free from all saw marks, old sealant or wax.
    • Ensure every entire surface is polished with the previous grit prior to moving to a higher grit. Any unpolished area with lower grit will result in sub-optimal shine and will lead to restarting polish with lower grit for the professional finish. A good way to ensure every single part of the edge is polished is to wipe the edge surface with gently squeezed wet cleaning towel, and polish dry. The heat will evaporate the water where it is already polished. Ensure entire water evaporates then perform one more round of wet polishing. Move to the very next higher grit once the entire surface is polished.
    • Repeat the processes with diamond granite polishing kit from lower grits to the higher grit until you get your desired finish. Make sure that you have used grits from lower to higher, apply gradually all the grits 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500 and 3000 grits. Don’t use more than the double grits from the first diamond granite polishing pads. Maintain the regularity to using the polishing pads.
    • Use one by one pad until the polish starts to shine accurately. Then, vacuum the area as needed to remove any debris. You would find good shine at the grit 800, and as you progress to grit 1500 and 3000 it will start getting a mirror like finish.
    • Seal the granite surface.
