    Re: Blade Clamp broke

    i had a simmilar saw foor about two weeks. i agree, dump the saw. i bought a comprable delta saw for around $100. If you keep the saw, i found thumb screws at the store. Remember that this is a metric machine. I belive they were 13mm. I could be wrong. one word oof caution. After I got a new clamp (ryobi sent me one on warranty) the orther screws and heads were breaking on me. If you just bought hte machine, try returning the machine.

    My only suggestion is DTR....dump the ryobi! lol Get the DeWalt! I will add to this, I just heard from a scroller that the Delta 20 or 120 something like that is actually better or will give DeWalt a run for its money,,,,so....I would look at both at least!

    Blade Clamp broke

    Hi all

    First off, I know my scroll saw is somewhat cheap, but what do you expect for a beginner..... I have a Ryobi 16' SC163VS that I think sells for about $100, I have done three maybe four projects on it ( X-mas ornaments) and the blade clamp screw broke. I know this girl cant be a brute but not that much, (just call me Zena), heehee ; p... Need help on trying to rig this puppy so I can use it again so that it's easier to use and without having to go buy a bunch of screws just in case I brake the next one.
    Thanks for all your help.

    I have had my Bosch Miter Saw since early 2000 and have used them three or four times at the most, That said is this new or is used? I am almost certain that they are available from unless the saw model has been discontinued

    You can find them on ebay for your saw. Like KarlB, I have had my Makita Chop saw since 2010 and used the hold downs maybe three times. They have their purpose. That saw does need a bit of TLC. Check and make sure it is properly setup.

    Yeah they are pretty popular. My brother makes them and sells them in the central FL area. I gave him some hardwood pieces to make some.
