Tips & Tricks

A tip we discovered to help prevent wear damage to the front hinge bracket of the Blue Ripper Jr is to coat the inside of the motor housing near the front hinge, as well as the hinge bracket where the blade sprays onto it, with Silicone. As the Silicon wears simply re-coat the surfaces. A lot cheaper and easier than having to buy a new bracket and re-aligning the saw every few years! See the attached manual for operating instructions, replacement parts, and more!

Worm drives

For a short period we offered the Blue Ripper Jr rail saw with your choice of either a Makita 5477NB, Milwaukee 6477-20, Skilsaw SHD77M, or a Bosch 1677M.  This proved to be a bad choice - the majority of our customers that purchased the non-Makita brands wound up swapping them out for the Makita.  This is because the bronze worm drive does not hold up to the vibration generated by cutting stone - we observed that the gear oil in these motors would go black within an hour's worth of cutting, and would often fail within a few days worth of operation.  Makita is still the only brand that offers the infinitely superior hypoid bevel gear - which we have not yet seen be the point of first failure in even the most abused Makita.  Because of this we've discontinued advertising and web sales of the models of the Blue Ripper Jr that used the other brands.
