  • 10 Circular Saw tips and tricks

    A circular saw is no toy, but after reading these 10 circular saw tips and tricks, you would be more confident is using one #Powertool For all your tool needs to and see us at Randburg Midas. Most novice do-it-yourselfers feel perfectly comfortable using an electric drill or jigsaw, but nearly all of them are hesitant to pick up a portable circular saw. And that’s not surprising when you consider that drills and jigsaws are relatively safe, quiet and easy to control. A portable circular saw, on the other hand, is a powerful, noisy, sawdust-spewing brute that can inflict serious injury if it’s used improperly—it’s on our list of the 5 Most Dangerous Tools. However, to improve your DIY skills and advance the size and scope of your weekend projects, it’s important to learn to cut with a circular saw. Here are 10 tips to help you cut safely and more confidently. Reminder: Wear eye protection when using any power tool. Inspect the Saw Before each use, run a quick safety check on the saw. Be sure the lower blade guard retracts smoothly and snaps back when released. Check the blade for chipped or broken teeth; replace the blade if you find any damage. On corded saws, inspect the power cord for cracks. If using a cordless saw, make sure the battery is fully charged. Remember to unplug the cord or remove the battery before loosening, tightening, or changing the blade. Check the Blade The speed and quality of the cut depends on the condition of the saw blade. Never cut with a dull, rusty, or damaged blade. I recommend using a thin-kerf carbide-tipped combination blade, which can be used for crosscuts and rip cuts in solid wood and plywood. With the saw unplugged or the battery removed, adjust the saw’s depth of cut so the blade extends no more than 1/4 in. past the board’s edge. Circular saws aren’t just woodcutting tools. When fitted with the proper blade, the saw can also saw through various types of metal, and through masonry such as brick, stone and concrete. Find the Proper Saw Position There’s no hard-and-fast rule regarding which direction to make the cut, but whenever possible position the saw with its motor facing toward the larger section of board that isn’t falling away when cut. That way, the saw’s base plate, or shoe, will be fully supported throughout the cut…

    We have showed you how an Air Filter works now it’s time to learn how to change one #MidasServiceParts Randburg Midas stocks service parts for all makes and models of cars so be sure to come and see us when your next service is due. Instructions Buy your air filter. Most air filters are pretty cheap. Between R50-R200. Swing by Randburg Midas and pick an air filter. Figuring out what air filter to get for your car is easy. First, you can check your owner’s manual, but let’s face it, you’ll probably forget to do that. Lucky for you, Randburg Midas has highly skilled staff who would be able to track down what the correct filter is for your car in no time. You just need to know the year, make, and model of your car, and they will be able to tell you what parts you need for your car. Open your hood and locate the air filter box. It’s the black plastic box sitting on top of or to the side of your engine. The filter box usually has a giant hose sticking out of its side. Open the air filter box and remove the dirty air filter. Opening an air filter box is a cinch. Just unclasp the big metal clips that hold the top down and open the box. Remove the dirty filter. Check the old air filter. Give your old filter a look over to see if it’s past its prime. Look inside the folds. See a lot of dirt and gunk? Time to replace it. Put in the new air filter. Place your filter in the filter box. Make sure it sits snuggly in the box. Close the top of the box and snap the clips. That’s it. Your engine will no longer be gasping for air like a fish out of water. Total time: about a minute. Source: www.artofmanliness.com
