  • Henger 14E Blade Clamp Block? use one from 18

    In the process of moving to a new shop I lost one of the clamp blocks. Advanced Machinery does not list a replacement part (023) for the 14E but they do list a clamp block for the 18 -- are these interchangeable?

    Is there a alternate source for the 14E clamp block if they are not interchangeable with the 18...

    I think the blade clamps are interchangeable. They do have different sizes though. I can interchange mine on my Polymax-3 and my Multimax-3

      The blade clamps on my two Hegners are interchangeable. The different sizes Jim is talking about goes for the size of the blade (different thickness of the metal I think).. one clamp is supposed to be used with the lower numbered blades and another is for larger numbered blades.

        I suggest you talk to Advanced Machinery who sells Hegners. Nice folks there and very helpful. I would get a Quick Clamp from them. It works without tools, for the top clamp only, in place of the original that requires the use of a wrench to tighten. Look Here......Hegner Scroll Saw..

          Mike at Mikesworkshop has a better one. Been using it for about 10 years and wouldn't be without it.

            I have two from Mikes, that I used for a while, but found that they bend the blade so much at the top that I could not get them through the tiny hole, I drilled, while doing inlay work. The one form Advanced machinery has a spring loaded separate piece that goes up against the blade and it pivots with each stroke of the saw. No blade bending with this clamp. I like the lever on the one from Mikes but the metal knob on the other, works well enough for me.

              I've been using the knob from Hegner, and have been very pleased with it. No blade bending, and it grips nicely without requiring great strength. The Hegner parts are not cheap by any means, but as usual, you tend to get what you pay for.

                Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                I found this information on fuses in general.

                Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
