  • Hello all from Michigan

    I have been having a problem with my blades. I prefer to use spiral blades, and recently when ever I try to tighten them they will either pop off, or the ends will bend to the point that I cannot use them for another cut. Please help.

    Welcome Taylor, sorry to hear you are having a blade problem.
    Are you using flat end spiral blades? Try running the ends between some sandpaper or cloth with alcohol on it. Blades usually come with a bit of residue oil on them.
    If they are not flat end spirals, try twisting both ends so they end up on the same plane.
    Another thing you could do is clean your clamps by running some sandpaper between them.
    I'm sure others will be along with more info for you but that's all I can think of for now.

        Thanks Wood. I tried the sand paper on the ends. It helped a little, but I will try to twist the ends for now. Then order some flat ends soon.

          I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

          The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

          Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
