  • 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 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.

              Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
              And on each cloud touching the body ?
              I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
