Much like the wood shop in which the unfortunate person that trips the saw stop is expected to pony up money or the replacement - the machine shop has voted to do the same with the Cold Cut blades.
The main reason the cold cut blade has broken has been to poor clamping which makes it a user issue. Cold cut blades run about $165 each. We realize that there is wear and tear on it from use so if you’re the unlucky person that breaks one we will be requesting a $75 replacement fee. This is effective immediately.
