    If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help with Pegas questions.

    Question about tilting head saws

    So I have a Rbi hawk 226vs ultra, and a Canadian Excalibur es30vs with tilting tables instead of the arm. Is the tilt arm saws how you all are make the blades bend for 3D looks? Also I read somewhere that all of the tilt arm scrolls are built in the same factory in Taiwan, so why would one be better than another? I have never operated a tilt arm saw, but I think I am about to buy one.

    I have had my Bosch Miter Saw since early 2000 and have used them three or four times at the most, That said is this new or is used? I am almost certain that they are available from unless the saw model has been discontinued

    You can find them on ebay for your saw. Like KarlB, I have had my Makita Chop saw since 2010 and used the hold downs maybe three times. They have their purpose. That saw does need a bit of TLC. Check and make sure it is properly setup.
