  • Plain end to pinned end

    I posted earlier but cannot find my thread - or post - I'll just have to ask again.

    I have an antiquate Ryobi Mod #SC162VS - I've been using plain end blades but stripped out set screw - waiting on new parts. Problem - when I try to use my old pinned blades the arm will not tension, it's like the pinned blades are too long now. I have no problem with plain end blades.

    The upper arm has some play in it and am wondering if there is a tension screw to bring this up. All other parts or in great condition.

    And yea, I'm saving up for a new DeWalt..

    There should be, so you can ad tension or release tension.

      JCJAGS4560 - don't know about the tension problem your having, but I noticed you said your saving up for a DeWalt... the Delta is the same saw but it may be a little less in the overall cost - and I'm not promoting either saw, just thought you'd like to know. Check out Issue 40 for a buyers guide.

      Good luck...

        Quarter inch BB with Red Gum (Australian Eucalyptus) veneer. My first attempt at veneering and there are a couple spots where there was not quit enough glue so small pieces of the veneer came off....

        In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

        Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

        The outside
        of the extension is almost finished apart...

        Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
