  • Need some help with my 788, please

    I'm posting under the "General" heading in hopes more folks will read this.

    My air nozzle cracked at the end, where it attaches to the saw. We removed the cracked section, but trying to securely reattach the nozzle has not been a success. I can get it pushed on snug enough for a while, but then it falls off.

    I've been fighting this for several months and I'm sooooo tired of it.

    There has to be a slick trick to get that pushed all the way so it snaps back on, but I sure don't know what it is.

    Help!

    Nancy:
    No experience in this problem, but judging from 788, it seems you should be able to heat the nozzle section in hot-not boiling- water and make it expand/become pliable enough to get it snapped on. Then set it with an ice cube.

    Again, no promises, just an idea

          I melted mine off with my magnifier light bulb.

            progress!

            Yippe, the hot hot hot water was a good suggestion....I managed to push the plastic end onto the outlet far enough that it stays in place when I reposition the nozzle. It isn't 100% all the way onto the outlet, due to my lack of strength to push harder, but it's 95% on and stuck pretty securely.

            Later on, I might try to get it pushed on the outlet all the way, with some help from my strong son!

            THANKS!!

              I've thought about using some clear tubing and just pushing onto the outlet and then hanging it somehow.

              Sorry your melted!

                Nanc when mine fell off I used a hair dryer to get it warm enough to push in......just in case you run out of water...... Whatever works is sweeeeeet.

                  I used a hair dryer as well. Glad you have it partially solved.

                    Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                    Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                    That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
