    That definitely is a distinct possibility. The other thought that came to mind was: When the PEGAS Scroll saw hit the market, I remember reading that they beefed up the EX21 frame design, I don't know what that modification entailed, I wondered if that meant they used a stronger material for table. Using a stronger material for the table would definitely change the the frame dynamics and alter the resonance point

      Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that.
      I have a Taiwan era Excaliber too, and I also hated the dust collection holes in the table top.

      I bought a magnetic sheet from Amazon, sorry it was so long ago I do not have a link, and put it on the table top. I thought it would not stick, I was going to use double sided tape, but when I put it on, it worked.​

        I had considered useing a hot glue gun but I like to be able to reuse some of the bigger waste pieces. Also when I use brads and they extend through the bottom piece I am always carefull to take a small hammer and tap the points back up flush with the bottom piece so I do not scratch the table.

        Ray at Seyco has the parts for the Excaliburs as long as it isn't one of the more recent Chinese clones....

        I use a pin nailer in the waste areas. The brad and pin nail guns are a wonderful thing.

        Good idea. I’ll have to try that when I get to the point of stack cutting. 👍
