  • Blades keep coming off

    I have a rbi 214 Hawk scroll saw that I just started using.When I put the blade on it appears that the top angles to the right. The bottom lines up with the center slot in the table but when I attach it to the top it pulls to the right. Is there an ajustment to the upper arm to move it to the left to line up with the bottom?

    Blades are held in most saws by "pinching" the blade between two flat surfaces. Most saw have a fixed set screw (allen type) on the left side of the clamp and another screw type device on the right side of the clamp. The fixed set screw can be moved for fining tuning the alignment.

      scott has it right but also be sure to use a drop of blue loc-tite so the set screw wont move around at all.

          I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

          If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

          The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

          I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies.
