  • Nickel or Dime?

    There was a little boy named Johnny who used to hang out at
    the local corner market. The owner didn't know what Johnny's
    problem was, but the boys would constantly tease him.

    They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a
    load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it,
    sometimes they would offer Johnny his choice between a nickel
    (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and John would always take
    the nickel -- they said, because it was bigger.


    One day after John grabbed the nickel, the store owner took
    him aside and said "Johnny, those boys are making fun of you.
    They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the
    nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or
    what?"


    Slowly, Johny turned toward the store owner and a big grin
    appeared on his face and Johnny said, "Well, if I took the
    dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I have saved $20!"

    That is a lesson we could all learn!

      Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

      I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

      Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

      That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

      Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
