  • Hegner Quick Clamp for Axminster

    Hi guys.

    After a bit of a break over christmas, Im back to the scrolling again, and now looking to speed up blade changes for my Axminster AWFS18.

    Could anyone please tell me if the following link is the correct Hegner part for my saw, or is their a cheaper alternative? Seems incredibly expensive for what it actually is.

    Quick Clamp for Piercework - HM0450 | Hegner UK LTD

    Also, is there any other addons from Hegner that I could buy while im at it to make my Axminster experience even better?

    Many thanks

      Mike, you caught me typing in your address at the same time.

      Luke, I have the one Mikes shows and it works great.

        I was just about to start a post and ask if any Hegner owners have tryed

        the QuickLever that Mike has for sale. I was wondering if the red button

        on the end of the lever serves any useful purpose. Does the button allow for

        adjusting the handle into a more convenient position when the clamp is

        tightened?

          Al, I have that lever on both of my Hegners. The button is not used allot, but does come in handy when I need to adjust the lever. I like to keep the lever tilted to the back of the saw a bit...this is easy tighten for me. Over a period of time it will get out of adjustment and I just push in on the red button to adjust the lever back to where I want it. I was doing this the other day, and the button would not push in. I took it off the saw and added some WD to it and all was good. Just to much nasty sawdust build up. This lever is very easy on the fingers for making sure the blade is in tight.

            ditto on what Larry said. The lever is very comfortable and easy to use and the red button is just what you think it is.

                Thank you, Larry, Chuck, and Mike.

                I made an enlarger for the knob on the upper blade clamp

                but this handle looks like it would work much better.

                I am going to Mike's site and order one right now.

                again.

                    Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
                    This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

                    I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
                    Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
