  • Question for Bronco or anyone else?

    Picked up a 40-251 blade clamp tonight and tried to install it on the lower arm of my SS-250. It will go on alright but won`t clear the table bolt.
    For those who made the quick change conversion on lower arm.
    Did I get the wrong one or is there a trick or modification?
    If it won`t work guess I have a spare for top arm.

    Jim,
    I removed that bolt and replaced it with one with a smaller bolt head I
    think I bought one at Lowe's. Once you get the lower blade clamp in
    it will be well worth your time.
    Good Luck,

      I want to revise my last post.
      I went and looked at my saw and what I actually did was
      bought a shorter bolt and turned it where the bolt head is facing the opposite direction it was, and put the nut on the side where the blade
      clamp is to be installed. This gives you pleanty of room. I hope this makes sense.

          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

          I'll talk about this specific "slice" of your question, with more detail that you probably want or need.

          Most Tilting head saws do come from the same Taiwan factory, except Excalibur. So what happened with Excalibur was . . . General got bought by a Chinese investor, some China/Taiwan...

          Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

          It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

          I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...
