  • 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

              How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

              The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

              I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
              Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

              If I were in the market for a new...

              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
