    First of all, get yourself healthy, and quit messing with your saw! Your health should come first! You can get a copy of the manual here http://www.general.ca/pg_index/manuals/EX-16e.pdf that may help you out but first hun, get yourself healthy!!

      Have the arm down as far as it will go and take a tape an see if it needs to go up or down. Turn the knob in what ever direction that will take the arm in the direction that it needs to go. If you go the wrong way it won't hurt anything just go the other way. Good luck on your meds.

        I just finished setting my Excalibur up.
        Install a blade in the saw and turn the knob on top of the saw until the arm is parallel ( you can use a level on top of the arm, or a piece of wood that you cut to fit just under the arm at the back of the saw).
        Next put a piece of wood at the back of the blade and see if you have front to back movement if you do, loosen the 3 screws on hte motor and turn it until there is no blade movement.
        Hope this help.

          to make it parallel push the arm down have a blade in now find your self a square a small one set it on your table and turn your knob till your blade is strait up and down with your square. lock the knob with center nut on your knob. What I use for a square is one of those square gauges in the sewing stuff My wife has one of those pizza cutter things that she uses for cutting material and thuse square works great. I cut it to look like a "L"

            Did you guys have the tension lever on when you leveled the arm?

              Yes by having it tight you know exactly whatever angle you are at.

                Placing a level on top of the arm will not be beneficial unless your saw table is level as well. Since I have my saw tilted that would be of no use to me.

                  I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
                  I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

                  Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

                  I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
