  • excalibur instructions

    Trying to put together the stand and it's heel right now. Hubby is cursing...lots :-(
    Paper is not clear and he is now wondering why I bought another saw :-(
    Eventually will get it together.

    I suppose it wouldn't help if I told you I put the stand together all by myself. It was easier looking at the picture than reading the instructions. Tell him it's worth it.

      I think there were other people on here had trouble getting it together.
      Stick with it you'll get it.

        The instructions are not worth the paper they are printed on, chuck them and use common sense.

          There are no written instructions only a very poorly explained picture. It is finally together and you will get a picture of it soon. We are not sure we put the right bolts in to hold the saw onto the stand. Oh well...
          I'm on dial-up so uploading is long. Be patient.

              I'm sure it will look better once it has saw dust on it!

                  Glad to see you have it finally done. I have done enough of these type of things that I just go with what makes sense. It is the same with IKEA plans.

                  The only thing I did is put a piece of plywood as a shelf as I built it.

                  I have to change mine as my wife bought me a new stool for Christmas and it is about and inch or so higher and I can't use it till I raise it up.

                  Good luck

                    I left mine in the box until hubby got the hint

                      I think you should have him put those bolts in the other way. The ones that are holding the feet of the saw. I bet it will 'feel' better if those bolts go in the other way.

                        Congratulations Diane!

                        The way the bolts sits in your first picture tells me that maybe there is a plan for fastening something to them. A shelf for your blade containers or some other nice gadget..

                        John may have a point, but I would say "look" instead of "feel". I think he is a little envious

                          Hi Diane - sounds like you are having real fun. As one who rarely reads a manual until I get in a real mess I'd say use the picture as a guide and then shout for help as needed.

                          Btw - when I saw your title for this post before I opened it I couldn't help thinking...

                            It needs some pin stripeing! Is that a new color for them?

                              I would have just set the saw on the kitchen table and started sawdusting! Oh, wait, my wife says I can't do that...but it was a thought. I'm anxious to hear your comments on your new saw. Congratulations!

                                by Bill Wilson
                                I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                                Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                                And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                                Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
