    replied to puzzle edge roundover
    How about a small round-over bit from Dremel? I have a "table" my Dremel tool fits into so you can use it like a router.

    replied to Plywood or Solid wood
    My problem with "real" wood is warping (cupping). Drives me nuts. Sometimes, a piece will be flat in my basement workshop, but will cup when I bring it upstairs. Some pieces cup and flatten with the changing of the seasons. Sometimes I think I'd be better off with metalworking! Plywood is...

    I've never found a way to unwarp wood. You can temporarily do it via the method above (soak one side, warm the other), but in my experience this is temporary. I think wood assumes whatever orientation it wants depending on the moisture content. It is also my understanding that warped wood can be an...

  • I just happened across this post from last month & would like to add another idea. In addition to all the suggestions/ideas already posted, I've also been experimenting with specialty papers. You can find lots of them at Michael's, such as the "sunset" backing I put on the lighthouse plaque...

    You're right, it does look cumbersome, doesn't it? Well, I'd be willing to do it if a) I liked everything else about the saw, and b) it didn't break blades on me. It's true how much different saws can be. Different blade motions, arm designs, tensioning mechanisms, etc. In fact, I can't think of another...

    replied to Excalibur owners
    That's the way they should've done it - The quick-release lever should also be the tension adjustment lever (just like on the 788). That way there's only one lever to move and you don't have to throw the front lever and then adjust the tension with the knob on the back! It puts an extra step in the...

    Because I'm sick of fighting with my G4. I despise the clamps and am not crazy about the tensioning mechanism. I break a lot of blades - I'm probably not setting them just right in the clamps because they break right at the set screw. I don't believe I'm tightening them too much because when I take...

    That's what I figured: After I wrote that, I took another look on the Seyco website and noticed the knob on the back. Do you find yourself using the adjustment knob often, or do you get sufficient tension with the lever?

    Excalibur owners

    When the Excalibur first came out (I believe it was when General stopped making the 788 for DeWalt), it was very similar to the 788, except that it had the rotating head (as opposed to the rotating table). IIRC, the original Excalibur also had the same tensioning system as the 788 - a lever that you...

    Mike: Just to be clear: Are you saying that there is no longer any front-to-back blade motion? So, when viewed from the side, the blade is in the same place at the top of the stroke as at the bottom?

    Or, put another way, if you lay a pencil on the table and lightly touch the BACK of the...

    Gawilke: Did it solve the front-to-back blade motion? I'm thinking of buying an EX-16, but I need more proof that this issue can be fixed. I really loved my DeWalt, except for the wacky blade motion. Since the Excalibur's are the same "double parallel-link arm" design as the DeWalt, I'm very...

  • My guess is that it accepts both pinned and pinless blades, but I can't make out the clamping mechanism. It says the blade tensioning mechanism is located on "the front upper arm", but I don't see it in the picture - It looks like the tensioning clamp is in the back, which is less convenient....

  • Thanks for posting this...I've been looking for just such a lever for my G4, which also comes with a tiny thumb screw even more annoying than the one on the 788.

    I recently made a modified thumb screw using a wide knob I got at Lowe's. One thing I've learned, however - The thumb screws...
