To insure maximum life of M42 band saw blades it is extremely important to properly break them in. The correct procedure after installation is to reduce the feed force into the material at 50% of normal speed for a period of 20 minutes. Then gradually increase feed force in 4 steps during a 10 minute period. This break-in process can extend blade life up to 50%.
