  • 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

        I like it.... I need to mod my Hegner like that also.

              Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

              Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

              Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

              Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

              I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

              Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
