  • 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

              We do one consignment event a year. It is at a local farm museum the three days after Thanksgiving. We just drop of our stuff and they set everything up. The fee is $60 up front to pay for the cashiers and the 20% on the sales. I just mark up my items to cover the fee. We pick up the remnants the following...

              I used those basswood blanks a lot some time ago, I found that unless you first use a coat or two of sanding sealer, they do not take stain real well. Often they turn out blotchy - technical term.. And sometimes they still do after the sanding sealer

              I used poly on the live edge too,...
