  • Roybi 16" scroll saw

    How can I keep the tension on my pin less blades ? It keeps comng loose at the lower clamp.

    I am not sure on the 16" but on my 18" I took sandpaper and sanded inside the clamps. There were some burrs left there during the manufacturing process.
    Once they were gone it was much better.

    note. I still do have a problem clamping extremely fine blades. less that 0/2.
    I have to admit it is a short coming of the blade clamp design

      Follow Carls lead, try sanding the blade ends a tad, if its not working, try sanding the setscrew. Dale

        I have found that over time my bolts on my Royobi seem to wear unevenly if I don't get the blade exactly centered in the clamp I have had to refile my bolts a couple of times top and bottom it seems there should be a way to redesign the bolts?

          Mine does not use bolts for the clamping. I will take a picture when I get home and post it. The clamp looks more like the jaws of a pair of pliers with an adjustment screw behind the fulcrum

            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

            I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

            Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

            And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

            Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
