  • 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 had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

      Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

      Reply to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
      by millwab
      I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
