  • quick release tension rod hegner multicut 3 vibrates loose

    I bought a 1987 multicut 3 Hegner scroll saw, added a few updates quick release tension rod and quick release blade clamp. The quick release tension rod keeps vibrating loose. What can I do to stop this problem?

    I have that same saw. 1986 though. I also made those upgrades. I found your problem happening on mine if I did not have the tension on the blade tight enough. Ran it tighter and it cured the issue for me. Good luck with yours.

      I put some of the least aggressive thread lock liquid I could find on the thread. Let it set up. Ran a nut up and down it a couple of times. That left enough residue on the threads to keep everything tight.

        How many times will I make a cut for inlay, then forget to reset the blade angle to 90 degrees? UGH!

        Rolf, on your second picture did you resize O Holy Night or was that the angle of the camera? How did you carve the bowl behind it? A little birdie told me I was getting the rest of what I need so I can do bowl and spoon carving. Actually, I told the bird what I needed/wanted. Your work is amazing.
