How To Clean A Taurus Ring Saw

The ring saw is a necessity if you are into making intricately designed stained glass suncatchers and learning how to clean a Taurus ring saw in particular, is much easier than you might think.

There are several steps to cleaning a Taurus 3 Ring Saw

  • First, remove the clear plastic face shield by simply pulling it off.
  • Next, remove the upper door side plate again by pulling it off and out.
  • Lift out the work table surface, remove the saw from the tub and set it aside.  
  • Pour out about half of the cooling water from the tub and leave the remaining water in the reservoir to help loosen the remaining glass residue when you scrub it out . 
  • Wash out and rinse the reservoir of any remaining glass particles. 

That's all there is to it. This video from Delphi shows how easily it's done.


If you want to really clean up the saw, add some liquid dish detergent to the reservoir after cleaning out all the debris and run the saw for several minutes before rinsing it out again.
If you currently have a Taurus 3 Ring Saw, feel free to comment on your experiences using it both pro and con.

The only complaints we have to date is how noisy it operates.  Unfortunately, you can't put a muffler on a saw!
