  • Excalibur cutting skewed

    Haven't been scrolling much lately, last time I used it it was working fine. Today, could hardly cut a straight line to save my life. It wants to skew off to the right.
    Tightened what screws I could, the plastic auto tightening mechanism in the front of the arm seems to have quite a bit of wiggle, don't know if its supposed to be that way or what.
    Has anyone else had this problem ?

    The only time I've ever had that happen on any saw is when the blade somehow got twisted. Have you tried a few different blades to see if you get the same result?

      Sounds like not enough tension on the blade.

        I've had that happen many times with a twisted blade. Doesn't take much, just a little twist with the saw not running. Can't tell by looking or feeling the blade, but it won't cut straight for anything! Sometimes when I'm sitting a little differently the blade seems to want to cut differently, but not by that much.

          I have E21 you should not have any play in the tension knob in the front. Is your blade tight if it is maybe a twisted blade.you ain't using a spiral blade are you?

            May also be the blade with a burr on the back side. Give Ray a call.

              He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.

              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...
