  • broken lower bushing support Henger Multicut 1

    Yesterday I was scrolling without problems, until it became very hard to feed the wood through the blade, like it was out of alignment.

    I stopped, adjusted the table (it was off, which was odd because I checked it not long before).
    Started up the saw, made a werd noise, like the blade tension was very loose, so I applied more tension (weird as well, because when I sawed before it was fine).
    Started up again and found out the saw went from left to right instead of up and down. Looked at the lower arm, totally out of alignment.
    Looked further, lower busing support bolt is broken.

    The bushing around which the lower arm tilts has a bolt through it that goes into the frame on the right side, and on the left side it has a 6 sided bolt (I think to adjust the alignment of the lower arm?).

    It's broken in the frame, can't get it out yet. Is it easy to get a replacement part and where is it available? Does this happen often?

    Thanks,

    Bob

        Thanks for your help. It turned out that we have an importer in the Netherlands who has these on stock.

          First time I have heard of that happening. I have two Hegners, the oldest is about 11 years and really have not had problems with it...the VIR went out on my other one, but and easy fix. Any idea what caused the problem?

            Dr. Bob,
            You could also go the the Hegner company in Germany.
            They are great people and might save you some money. You could also get a tour of the factory.

              I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
