  • Excalibur EX-30


    Few weeks ago my engine and driver was burned :/

    I received new engine and driver weeks ago . Mounted all today.
    Unfortunately, I have extreme vibration. Saw can not reach full speed.

    How this could be adjusted .I tried to turn the engine, but this is not working .

    What else should I check?

    I can't tell from that video whether there is an abnormal amount of vibration. The saw does vibrate a fair amount if you don't have it mounted to something solid... Preferably the stand. Mine is rock solid on the sand and would probably pass the nickel test but on the cabinet where I now have it, it sounds similar to yours.

    The motor adjustment is to minimize the front-to-back blade motion only, it doesn't make any noticeable change to the amount of vibration as far as I can tell.

    Do you have the saw mounted in the same way as before you replaced the motor? Can you bolt it down? Do you have the stand for it?

      Are there any counter weights on the motor shaft that are now not in the right location? After replacing the motor. The motor is balanced so it would have to be how you connected it.
      Unless there was an initial problem in the saw that caused things to burn up in the first place.
      Have you talked to SEYCO?

Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

        It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

        Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
