i know topic this has been hashed through and through but... what are some quick, cheap, ways to put a water drip onto my saw blade? im into some hickory now which seems to be quite tough for my old Kasko saw... even with new blade...
So, does this saw not have anything?
If you have to start from scratch, you can start with a 5 gallon pail, which you drill a 1/2" hole through the side near the bottom. From any ACE hardware store, you can get a rubber bushing that will fit the half inch. They also sell vinyl tubing, which you can get to fit the ID of the bushing of your choice.
A little spring clamp will work to shut if off between cuts. I'd whittle a little poorly fitting stopper for the top, to control the flow rate. more spring clamps to hold the tube so it flows where you need it.
I hope this helps. I had to replace the one on my old Woodmizer which fell apart right when I needed it, so this is what I did.
thanks. this is an old saw which never had anything for dispensing lube.
I bought a windshield washer after market kit on line and installed it on my oscar 18 . Works great. Dan up in northern Maine
