          JJT, some 52A pieces have two holes and screws to fix it, just leave one screw out, it will reduce the stress on the piece.

            Mine broke in the same place last week and I spoke to Ray at Seyco about it. Apparently they had a bad batch of that piece that they had determined had been over-hardened making it brittle. It's only a problem on that particular batch...My replacement parts are on the way now. ... I guess we are the lottery winners

            Got the old Dewalt out and man is it hard to cut small detail work with it. I REALLY notice the front-to-back blade motion now after getting used to the Excalibur! My designs are sitting on hold while I wait for the parts.

            On the plus side, Sheila got a large production order and was forced to use the Dewalt. These are simple, easy silhouettes for painting surfaces and it turns out that the aggressive blade motion gives the Dewalt the advantage of cutting quite a bit faster on such simple patterns. This is a good thing since she has to cut out over 2000 ornaments!

              same ol'

              Same thing happened to me, twice! and i live in Honduras, so you can imagine the trouble to have that fixed.
              Ray was very helpful tough and he sent me the whole arm with an spare screw, which broke again, and have to use the old screw, which so far is working. Ray said that he will send me a special screw but if it brakes again i think i will be going to a metal shop (?) to have one custom made.

              hope you can fix your machine as i do know how frustrating can be to have that saw not working for a few bucks worth screw.

                My saw is up and running again! The part that Ray sent to me is quite different from the one that it replaces . I imagine it's the one he was referring to with you, Nayo. It's not even a screw. That whole turnbuckle linkage is replaced and the offending screw is no longer needed. Here's a picture showing the difference between the two.

                    How hard is the part to replace? I'm waiting for the part too. Mine broke last week. Ray was very helpful and would have replaced the whole saw for me if I wanted.

                        Since the part they sent to me was already set to the correct length, replacing it was not too difficult for me. I suppose it depends on how mechanical you are. Seyco sent me the instructions on how to do it and I didn't find it was that hard to follow. The only trouble I had was in pulling the motor out since it was a little hard to get the shaft to come out of the bearing.

                              When seyco sent me the part the didn't send instructions. Jean-Jacques sent me what he had (Thanks!!). Between those and talking to Ray from seyco I was able to get it fixed.
