          blade clamp probs.

          After all the upset, I would send it back. The whole idea is to enjoy the hobby and get some personal satisfaction out of it, not become a tool repairman. Its of course your call. Other peoples opinions don't cost anything.

              I got the same saw and am really fed up with it already......had to change parts from my older saw because the screws of the clamps were worn straight away.....that plastic cover is to thin so it is not level with the table....and the amount of vibration....not good from them...also spoke to them and also wanted to send me replacement parts......but like you said...i am no repairman and am not intending on asking for new parts every 7 weeks.

                  Some saws are made very cheap, When I first moved to Hawaii I tried to get a good saw but most places wouldn't ship there so I settled on a Ryobi and what a piece of gabage went throgh two of them cause of blade tentioner broke,so I went to sears and got the craftman turns out same problem went throgh two of those then gave up. I found out ryobi makes the craftsman saw lol so I don't think it's you.Jerry

                    In most cases you get what you pay for. If your saw costs when you bought it new for $100 USD or 76 EUR then you can expect that a few corners have been cut during the engineering and design phase of the saw as well as making it with the cheapest materials possible. I am not sure what saws are available in GB but I would most definitely be looking for a better saw.

                      thanks jerry, i did really enjoy what little time i had on the saw, to be honest this saw is not for me its making me stressed and that is not the idea, so hopefully they will come and take it back, before it puts me of scroll sawing,,,,,

                        Do yourself a favor and just return it, as for getting stressed it's not worth it that's why I gave up over in Hawaii just didn't want to stress out on the cheap saws, good luck and just wait till you can get a better saw.Jerry

                              Hi Doddy
                              If you are still having trouble with your blade holders Olson do a conversion kit. Have not used it myself but it may be worth ago,it's avaliable in uk from Woodwork craft supplies,at woodworkcraftsupplies.com .Sorry don't know how to put link in. stick with it as it's a terrific pastime

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                                I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
