    replied to diabetes and scrolling
    I'm diabetic, diagnosed type II in '88. I've watched the neuropathy progress slowly since then and today I have little feeling in my feet, making it difficult to maintain my balance. AiC is 5.7. I've only been scrolling for the past 5 years, so I know scrolling isn't influencing my diabetes. It...

    The deadman foot switch is the way to go, but I also suggest that you cover the regular switch with tape to keep the dust out. With that switch in the "on" position, of course!

    Rolf, I have no idea how my "Hegner" guess showed up as a post after you disclosed what your new tool really was. I remember posting it on pg #3, and can only guess I posted before reading ALL the posts. Sure looked odd where it came out!

    Danny, you CAN get the foot switches at Harbor Freight. Your choice of momentary (press to run, lift to stop) or push on, push off. I've got four of them and never had a problem with any. My preference is the "dead man's" switch where you keep your foot on it to make the saw run. Lift...

    replied to going to be off for quite a while
    Lefty, I had my right shoulder done a few years ago but made the mistake of thinking I was healed after about a month and managed to pull it all loose. Doc did it again, but this time warned me that there wouldn't be enough left to do it a third time, so behave myself. I did, and today I'm doing fine....

  • The blower on my EX 21 gave it up at one year, and never did create much pressure. I've put in a fish tank air pump there. My Hawk G4 on the other hand really clears the dust.

    replied to Rbi hawk 226vs question
    That roll pin should come out easily enough with a c-clamp. Put a small socket from a 1/4 " drive set over it on one side, then use a small pin on the other side so you can drive it into the roll pin and into the hollow of the socket. It's a bit cumbersome to get everything lined up but should...

  • I also prefer the slant. I can see better, it's more comfortable on my back and arms and more. The wood does not slide while I cut. How high? I started with the DeWalt and adjusted the rear leg to give me an extra four inches. I now have both the Excalibur 21 and a G4. I adjusted the EX stand to...

  • I agree that there is something seriously wrong with a person that would do that.

    Not quite on target, but our local vet has a cat with three legs. She got run over by the mail truck. That cat gets lots of love from the staff and customers. They named her "Postal". Can't...

    replied to EX-21 tension problem.
    Ray exchanged mine a good six months ago. Had to ship the old one back was the only cost. The replacement looks like he ground a new flat in one area. Works just fine now.

    Now if I could just figure out how to get the new bellows installed without totally dismantling the arm...

    Rolf, you may have done a review on the new Hawk on this board, but I haven't seen it. If you haven't, I believe it would be helpful to many if you did. (Hint, Hint)

    replied to hawk 220vs
    Bit of a long story on that. A year or so ago I got a Hawk 220VS and I really liked it. But I kept reading posts about how good the Excalibur is, so I sold the Hawk and bought a new EX-21. Part of my reasoning was that with the Hawk I could only do bottom feeding, but with the EX-21 I could do either....

    replied to hawk 220vs
    It's a great saw, bottom feed only. IMHO $599 is a bit high as I've seen them on Craigslist closer to $400-500. If you want to know it's age, call Bushton with the serial number and they can tell you. The age isn't as important as the condition. One thing to check is the motor and whether it's AC...
