Maintenance and Usage Tips for the Alpha® AWS-110/125

  • Be sure to inspect/test the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) before operating the tool.
  • Carbon brushes should be checked periodically and replaced when necessary. In many cases, this simple maintenance procedure will avoid having to send the tool in for unnecessary repairs.
  • Do not leave the tool submersed in water. This could expose the inner moving parts to moisture, which will shorten the life of the tool.
  • Light pressure should be applied when using this tool allowing the blade to do the work, excessive force will cause overheating and may result in premature failure of the blade, bearings, gears, or all of the above. Step cutting method is recommended: especially when using the curve cutting blade product line.
  • Use the side handle supplied with the AWS-125 saw for better control and ease of operation.
  • This tool has a left hand thread on the flange bolt. Turn right to loosen.
  • To ensure ease of removal, do not over tighten blade adapter screws. Do not leave blades installed on the arbor for extended periods of time.
  • Be sure the trigger lock is disengaged before plugging tool into a power source.
  • Replacing the felt strips when worn will prevent scratching and allow the tool to slide across the material being cut (natural stone, quartz
  • surfaces, tile, glass, etc…)

Maintenance and Usage Tips for the Alpha® AIR-658
  • At the end of each workday, 2-3 drops of AIR-008, solvent free oil (included with each polisher) should be placed in the air inlet at the base of the tool. Rotate the spindle counter clockwise, by hand 3-4 revolutions. (Replacement containers of oil may be purchased from Alpha Professional Tools® Part # AIR-008.)
  • Automatic oilers are not recommended: the volume, grade, and composition of oil used may cause premature failure.
  • In-line air dryers are recommended to extend the life of the tool.
  • Old or worn compressors, which emit oil through the air lines, can dramatically shorten the life of the tool.
  • Do not leave the tool submersed in water. This could expose the inner moving parts to moisture, which will shorten the life of the tool.
  • Do not leave threaded accessories (backer pads, core drill bits, profilers) on the spindle of tool for extended periods of time; this may result in making it difficult to remove these accessories.
  • Excessive force or impact to the spindle may result in premature failure of gears and/or bearings, which may not be immediately evident.
  • Operating the tool at a pressure that exceeds the recommended operating specifications (see owner’s manual) or without the silencer may result in premature failure of the tool.
  • The silencer, part number 658-52, should be replaced when it no longer allows air to flow freely. This is indicated by a dark, shiny appearance.
  • During the use of Alpha® Core Bits and Alpha® Profilers, use of the “C-Shape” handle is recommended. The C-Shape handle will allow the operator to have better control and ease of operation during these applications.
  • Excessive force or impact to the spindle may result in premature failure of gears and/or bearings, which may not be immediately evident.
Maintenance and Usage Tips for the Alpha® AWP-158 / VSP-120

  • Be sure to inspect/test the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) before operating the tool.
  • Carbon brushes should be checked periodically and replaced when necessary. In many cases, this simple maintenance procedure will avoid having to send the tool in for unnecessary repairs.
  • Do not leave the tool submersed in water. This could expose the inner moving parts to moisture, which will shorten the life of the tool.
  • Do not leave threaded accessories (backer pads, core drill bits, profilers) on the spindle of tool for extended periods of time as this may result in making it difficult to remove these accessories.
  • If dust or dirt settles inside the motor, it may cause the polisher to malfunction. After 50 hours of operation, run the motor in a no-load mode and blow dry air through the vents of motor body. Make sure to wear safety protection when blowing air through tool.
  • When polishing, do not apply more force or pressure than the force created by the weight of the polisher itself (the polishing discs are designed to work properly under the light pressure). Applying excessive force or pressure will decrease the rotation speed, which reduces the efficiency of the polishing action.
  • During the use of Alpha® Core Bits and Alpha® Profilers, use of the “C-Shape” handle is recommended. The C-Shape handle will allow the operator to have better control and ease of operation during these applications. Excessive force or impact to the spindle may result in premature failure of gears and/or bearings, which may not be immediately evident.
