  • Thanks for the info

    I thank everyone for their opinions and advice. I decided to buy the ex30, it sure didn't look this big in the store. It was pretty easy to set up, and cuts really nice right out of the box. I'm not going to worry about the arm lift, after reading your replys it makes more sense to make my own. Thanks again
    Now the real fun begins!

    It's good to know you're finding the forum useful . I'm sure you'll get years of happy productivity from your new saw.

    Although the saw may appear to be perfectly set up, can I suggest you check that the table is square to the blade? You can use either a protractor or an engineers square to do this, or even a largish block of square waste wood; simply make a cut into the wood, then invert it and hold it against the blade - if the cut lines up with the blade, the table is square.

    It might sound quite trivial, but you'd be surprised at the difference that even ½° out of square will make.

      I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

      I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

      I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

      The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
