    Hi - I have been asked in work to souce bore reducing rings so we can use 35mm bore circular saws on a 30mm spigot.

    In the back of my mind, I remember this is outlawed but cannot find any legislation.

    The saws are 550mm diameter and used 24 hours a day.

    Anyone have any knowledge of the law on this??

    Thanks

    Don't know but Amazon UK list them for converting a 30mm to 1" which I'd be surprised at if they were not legal.

    Plus B&Q and a few other places list them.

    Might be different rules for commercial use?

    SCM sell bore reducing kits for their saws.

    Found this out after skipping 10 blades that didn’t fit :doh:

    Still legal, any sawsmith or professional blade supplier will get them

    As long as whatever you use makes the blade to run concentrically, your blade is balanced and therefore you're using the equipment correctly (staying within blade speed limits)

    Any machine shop (anyone with a lathe, in fact) can rattle these up :)
