    Tracey,

    The machine I started on is similar, I believe. Looking at the picture that white plate with the two stickers on is covering the bottom blade attachment. I took mine off along with the hold down and the guard. It looks as if it is only secured with two bolts.

    I discarded all three bits. Otherwise there is no way to change the blade without trying to "fish" for the attachment. I think they are only put on for some H&S numpty. They just make things impossible with them on.

    Let us know how you get on.

        I agree, after getting my first saw, I quickly realised that very little thought had been put into how the thing would actually be used.

        I suppose someone had seen a potential for putting your hands or fingers underneath the saw table while the saw was running and coming into contact with the blade. I take it that your saw types pin end blades? Mine did and it was just possible to change the blades by fishing for the cup hookd through the hole in the saw table. Most unsatisfactory.

        But one thing it will do far better than anyone telling you, is let you know inexpensively whether you like the hobby or not, and it will let you see for yourself all the features you want on your next saw.

        Good Luck

            SSWWC and the older CWWC magazines were and are still a great source of for my Christmas ornaments. I can't count the times we have gone through the issues an said "how did we miss this one". I agree I was disappointed with the lack of Christmas and holiday patterns in last years Winter edition....

            Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
            And on each cloud touching the body ?

            Thanks

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...
