  • Hegner Help

    I am currently using a Hegner MultiMax 18V. I love the cut quality, motor, table, etc. but, I'd like to try this as a top feed saw as I am doing more fretwork lately. Anyone been able to switch the clamps or come up with a system to do so?
    Does Hegner (Or anyone else) make a clamp for top feed?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hegner was never designed to be top fed therefore I have never heard of anyone being able to modify it to do so..

      Top feeder!

      I always suspected the Hegner owners were bottom feeders.
      We the RBI G4 guys can feed anywere. So does my Delta.
      When our club meets the Hegners used to be on one side of the old barn where we meet and the OTHER saw owners on the other side. (pure coincedence, but worthy of lots of harasment and laughs. We have since integrated.

          Top feeding

          I had not done much top feeding on my saw until I did Jeff Zuffino's train picture( Old and New). I used very small holes (#68 drill .027") and lots of them. It was very difficult to feed the blade from the bottom in the center of pattern. The top feeding became second nature. The RBI arm pops up when you release the bottom blade clamp (like that gadget on the Dewalts) and then there is a small lever that holds the arm down will you re-clamp the blade. Overall I still prefer bottom feeding.

            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 ?

            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...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
