    the Pegas 2/0 reverse, has 15TPI cuts fast. Yes Bob I did find it and may even have a few. I am cutting a stack of 6 1.5 mm Finish birch and even the it cuts very fast so I go back to the Olson 28 TPI blade. This is about 4" tall....

    Why careful with the knob? Fragile?

    I did replace the pitman arm.a couple of years ago. They want you to send the saw in? You can replace it yourself, I bought the pitman arm assembly from them at one of the open houses. I am sorry that you are so far away or I would swing by and take care of it for you.

    I adjust it just a bit at a time 1/8 - 1/4 turn tighter if you go too tight the lever will be very difficult to move....

    That is an amazing motor. I really like it on my Nova DVR XP. I may order the newer electronic controller that has a variable speed knob along with the adjustable presets....

    Jim, there is a small allen screw under the arm that needs to be tweaked now and then to keep the lever in place. this picture is from under the arm. Adjust a little bit at a time until it holds. ...

  • I also called yesterday and ordered a few gross of the Olson 2/0 R blades. That should hold me for a while.
    They will be missed, I am sorry that I never had a chance to meet them at their shop.

    Vgraf, I don't use the blower at all. I just bend it up and back so that it blows away from me....

    It depends on the project, but I spray most of my work with a semi gloss or satin lacquer. I was never a fan of BLO. I am not a fan of the lacquer smell either. Another alternative is shellac. I use spray....

    It looks great! When I was doing this project for the magazine. I realized the angle problem with the braces underneath. The edges were square in the pattern from John Nelson. There was no way that would work since the braces were installed at an angle. It took me a while to get it right.
    That...

    Wuss! I didn't think anyone would pay attention to that statement. Bob does Pegas have a 2/0 reverse with 28 TPI? I did not find it on any chart that I have.
    I have the Pegas 28TPI blade no reverse. It cuts nice but I want to reduce the bottom fuzzies.

    Olson blade source?

    I have been starting to use Pegas blades but when I have something very detailed I like using a slower cutting blade like the Olson 2/0R 28TPI. I have been getting them forever from Sloans, unfortunately the are retiring. If any of you use Olson blades who do you use? And no I don't want an alternative...

    replied to Pegas saw
    I added a trap to catch the small pieces that I don't want to lose. Also a simple swivel so I can swing the top part out of the way without messing with the upper nozzle. I did not glue the joints in case I get a clog. ...

  • We had a super show! The two days just fly by and I have a sore throat from talking and demonstrating along side my buddy Joe on his Hegner cranking out ornaments and compound cut stuff for the kids. As soon as I get some I will post them. I had no time to take any. We (the club members) Did a group...

    The G4 is, in my opinion the best Hawk saw that they ever produced. Jim I have had and been using mine heavily since 2005 so I may be able to answer any question you may have.

    Multiple saws, I sold my Delta SS-350 this past weekend to a fellow club member and he subsequently sold his older...
