  • Learned something about my Hawk today

    I went out to do some cutting and got everything set up. Sat on the stool pressed the pedal. Nothing! I checked all the usual suspects and could find nothing wrong. Got down and checked around under the table and found a dangling wire. The wire from the motor to the switch box is not hard wired but connects with a plug. All my equipment is on casters and somehow in moving things about the plug got disconnected. Put it back in and started to cut.

    Don't recall knowing about the plug before. Of course, I getting to the age where everything is new every day.

    Earl, now that was an easy fix. Glad you found it.

      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....

      Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
