    Look at the progress you are making already. You should be very pleased. Keep up the good work.

      thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! i was surprised i did so good know where i want to improve but that will come with practise. i lifted the back of the scroll up like someone suggested on here and it worked like a charm. plus i forced myself not to rush, that is a major problem for me, at spots i did and you could tell but i am learning not to. i cant wait to get the conversion kit so i can use pinless and better blades.

        Very nice project. Looks like a nice piece of pine(?). Once you can use pinless blades and your blade choices increase dramatically you will see a significant amount of improvement in your projects.

                    I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
