  • Hawk G4

    Hello-
    I purchased a 26" G4 in May from RBI at their Scratch and dent sale and have had no problems with it until Sunday. I was told that the saw never left the factory and was placed in the front office for display. It is a year old so I only got a 5 year warrenty. For the cost savings it was a no brainer to buy it. Sunday the dowel pin fell out that connects the pitman arm on the motor and the bottom arm. It goes back in and feels snug but if the saw runs for about5 minutes and check it it's ready to fall out. I have sent two e-mails that have returned saying that they can't be delivered and 2 voice mails and no phone calls returned. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with a HawkG4 or with RBI not retuning calls. I love the saw . I was ready to order a planer from them.

    Good luck with the problem. I can't help with it but I have heard a lot of times that RBI's service stinks. Maybe time to re-think about where to buy a planer..
    Hope you get it straightened out before toooooooo long.

        Y'all had me mighty curious there for a bit. Although I've never ordered parts from them to fix a problem, I have ordered extra things like blade holders, planer blades, etc. and always found them responsive. Wonder what the holdup was? How long was it and did they give any explaination? Just curious.

          It took them about 2 days ,but I guess it's not to bad considering it was the weekend also. I.m already starting to have withdrawls from not sitting at it.

            Well, If they spend their weekends like I do, eatin bbq and drinkin beer, I'd say two days ain't too bad. Next time that happens you might try what my doctor prescribed - drink a six pack (Lone Star works good) and you'll feel better tomorrow (you might want to add a little Bob Wills music also).

            Cheers

              SSWWC and the older CWWC magazines were and are still a great source of for my Christmas ornaments. I can't count the times we have gone through the issues an said "how did we miss this one". I agree I was disappointed with the lack of Christmas and holiday patterns in last years Winter edition....

              Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
              And on each cloud touching the body ?
              I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

              Thanks

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...
