How to use a bone saw
Before you commence cutting, you first need to adjust the height of the saw to correspond to the height of the piece of meat you’re looking to cut into smaller pieces. You can slide the plate behind the saw to set the desired thickness for the meat you’re looking to cut. Bone saws are equipped with something called a meat pusher, with this lever needing to be raised before larger meat pieces to be cut down is placed on the base surface of the machine Federal Hospitality Equipment. Then, lower the lever so that the meat pusher makes contact with the meat you’re going to cut. At this point, you can activate the one saw itself. Push the piece of meat you’re working with along slowly, using the meat pusher as a guide Federal Hospitality Equipment. Carry on pushing the meat gently like this until a full slice has been successfully cut. When you’re done, turn off the bone saw motor and unplug the machine if you don’t need to use it again for a while.
