  • excalibur scroll saw

    A warning to Australians.
    These models are made by a different manufacturer to the American models.
    There is a problem with the variable speed card. Carbatec knows about the problemand have asked the manufacturer to fix the problem but they have refused.
    I bought one in october, now I have to ship it back to carbatec to have the variable speed fixed. They will pay for the repairs but not the shipping.
    It seems a bit insane to me that they know about the problem but still sell them asis.
    It would have been a lot simpler to repair the problem before selling them.

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your post.

    Hmm, I just bought a 2nd hand carbatec saw with a non-functioning variable speed control, maybe this is why? (was the only one I could get, not enough moolah for a new one) Not sure what model this is but it's a 16" pinned blade model

      So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
      I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
      In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.
      I also added the...

      Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

      Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
