Abstract

The saw accurately makes repeated, very fine cuts such as are required in a jig for holding wires that are being threaded through a memory core plane. The saw has thin blade 2 that is mounted on an arbor, made in two parts 3 and 4 which are threaded together. The arbor is mounted in pivot bearings 6 and 7, supported by posts 8 and 9 on base 10. The latter can be mounted on an X-Y table. The arbor is connected to be driven from motor 11. Thumbscrew 5 is arranged to position bearing 7 to prevent axial play. Circular blade 2 is made very thin. Arbor portions 3 and 4 are provided with shoulders that support blade 2 radially outward. With this arrangement blade 2 can be as thin as one and one-half mils.
