  • 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...

        Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

        As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

        Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
        I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
        For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

        The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

        Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
