  • I fixed my blower on my hegner!!!

    Thanks for the info guys, I actually unbolted the block on the right side, and I had one of those steel L shaped brackets, drilled that out and then bolted that to the right side on the frame so it went over the top of the saw to the left, I then rebolted the block to that bar and now my blower is on the left side of the blade, it should be a lot easier to saw and move out of the way

    Thanks
    Bill

    Would you mind posting a picture so we can see what you did.
    Our club saw is a Hegner and the stock setup blows the dust right in your snoot. A very bad design for an excelent saw.

      Here's a picture of the retrofit on my saw

      This is for Rolf, here is a picture of the bracket I rigged up to move the blower to the right side. It works good. My saw is like a 1996 model.
      Thanks

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
