  • a problem with blades

    Hello, I have a Hitachi 16" scroll saw and prefer to use spiral blades. The bottom blade holder I am finding hard to get at to tighten blade. Does anyone know of any other type of blade holder I could get that is compatible with this brand? I would prefer to use some type of quick release.

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

      To fit a spiral blade in a clamps, I would put the ends in a vise to tighten them somewhat.

        Having previously owned a Hitachi CW40, I can tell you the easiest way to get to the lower holder is to remove the left side panel--especially if you have medium to large hands.

        Another thing I used was a T-handle 3mm allen wrench to give me a little more reach.

          Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

          I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there.

          Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
