    Question Slitting saw questions

    I'm getting ready to make a slitting saw arbor and was wondering what is the preferred size, 7/8 or 1 inch?

    Also, I see a TON of different sized blades for these in thickness, teeth count and type. Any suggestions on the more common (best) ones to start out with just for general work, nothing specific at this point. Just maybe 2 or 3 to start out with.

    Thanks,


    Bob

    Hi Bob
    Those are good questions, as far as arbor size goes it really doesn't matter, slitting saws come in a much more selective thicknesses than slotting saw, so you may want to consider what size slot you want first, cause some come with 1" arbors and others with 7/8", before it's all said and done you will wind up making both, slitting saws are mainly for cutting narrow slots while slotting saws are much thicker and heavier built.

    Hope this helped
    Here is a link to an arbor I made, can be modified very easily

    Yeah, maybe I will make both. I'm taking a short cut on this. I have an import boring head that unscrews from it's R-8 shank so will use that shank on the tools I make.
