Thread: Bandsaw sparks!
01/12/2008 00:17:00

I wasn't very precise was I? Sorry.

I mean the wheel approx 20mm diam that supports the blade from behind, and in the top guide assembly.  the sparks come from exactly there.

 It appears to turn quite easily - it doesn't keep spinning if you flick it, but there's no real resistance. it has a couple of 1mm deep scores in it (from the back of the blade).

Thanks for your ideas and suggestions .

I know this can't be right, but I can't see what I've done wrong (Adjustment/setting up). It didn't use to happen.
It's a Basato 3, and there are marks on the circular disc that is the back bearing. When I saw I get some sparking from this area.
Any ideas, anyone?

Thread: Rexon Mitre saw?
04/12/2008 14:24:00

I'd just decidedto go for the REXON when I noticed that it comes with no support bars, or end stop, and that the base has no holes to accommodate ones you might buy or make yourself!! I would have thought these weere too useful to do without - tho' maybe others would disagree...

In the end, I've been getting on with the current job by hand, and managing ok, so I may put the purchase on hold.

Thanks for your thoughts, everyone, and I'm still interested in where the right price/performance point is.

Richard, thanks for that. I'd guess you were unlucky with your Makita, but what do I know?

Very Interesting re Rexon: I can live with the 62mm depth limit, and the noise as I wouldn't be using it all day.

Thanks, John

Yes, with £500 I probably would too!

Sigh.

Thanks Dave, Have you used other ones - to compare?

Screwfix are selling the
Rexon SM2150AE 216mm Sliding Compound Mitre Saw

for around £118  (down from 170).

I note  that it will cut 'only' 62mm deep, but can anyone advise of any disadvantages? Where would it's quality (ie accuracy) be? Not as good as DeWalt or Makita I suppose, but how about JET, Erbauer, , or metabo/electra-beckum?

others?:

JET JSMS-10L      90x305    £150

metabo/electra-beckum  KGS255 Plus     60x255    £189

Ryobi EMS2026SCC    90X305    £199

Any experience, anyone?

Thread: Bench Belt/Disc sanders

Hi Tone

 Thanks - not sure how soon I'll buy either.

> I'm still too busy at work for much woodworking when I get home...

I know the feeling

Hi Ben

Yes, sorry, I missed a letter out of the model no.

Tony is right - that's the one I was wondering about.

Where have you got to Tony? Have you bought, or been put off buying within your budget?

John

Hi everyone, I've just joined the site, so please excuse any newbie gaffs!

Is this thread still 'alive' as I would like to pose exactly the question that Tony did...

I wasn't intending to spend more than 150ukp, but would going for the Axminster A2WEBD610 provide the sturdiness missing in the cheaper machines,  or are they ok really?

TIA, John
