Question about Saws

Open Question

I have a Titan SF16G 406mm Scroll Saw. While I was cutting the blade slipped and lost the pin on one end. When I tried to start again, there just seems to be a humming sound but the blade in holder no longer seems to run and no air is emitted from dust blower. Any ideas? Many thanks

    Did you replace the broken blade with a blade that has both pins and then try? the saw won't engage if the blade is not chucked in the pinholders top and bottom. If you have done this and it still wont go, the lost pin may have fallen into the works and be jamming.

SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off

I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

SOURCE: proper blade tension to speed tips

If you are like most people, (from your description you probably are), you might be feeding too fast. I did the same thing, and many other people I know did also. I learned by trial and error, and using scrap, watched from the side as I fed. Sure enough, when that little blade bent just a little too far...SNAP. It is much slower sawing than I imagined, even with the coarsest blade. I learned the best and broke the fewest with spiral blades. I always set the tension by sound. Again, trial and error. Take your sweet time! Have fun!!

SOURCE: after reassembly blade will not cut wood, does not maintain suffient tension despite being correctly inserted

It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.

Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.

How to install blades

Almost all scroll saws use a 5 inch blade. You need to take all the tension off your saw before installing the blade. Make sure you are using the right kind of blade. Either it is a pinned blade or non pinned blade. Some saws can use either. Make sure the teeth on the blade is facing down toward your saw table. Clamp the blade into the blade clamps and then add the tension. You should be ready to go now

Clutch adjustment on ryobi reciprocating saw # rj160v

The Ryobi RJ160V does not have a clutch, it has a direct drive system: the armature has a gear pressed on the end of it that turns a bevel gear with an off-set pin on it. This pin fits into a slot on the end of the saw bar assembly which is what you attach the blade to. If you have slipping it could be stripped armature gear teeth or bevel gear teeth or both or the pin on the bevel gear is broke off.

My Dewalt DW788 scroll saw continuously ends up speeding up and then slowing down, like the circuit board controller is blown...........the service center says they fixed it and replaced the board and...

Part is $84.00 Are the operators crowding the tool, blades sharp? Scroll saws do not cut quickly.

How to change the blade on a craftsman scroll saw? The manual was been misplaced when we moved

You might be able to find the manual on the Sears site (this can be a frustrating search - but start with the model number). But even without the manual, this is pretty easy on most scroll saws. There is usually a plastic knob (about the size of a ketchup bottle lid) on top of the machine at the back. You loosen this knob a couple of turns (to the left) and the blade will become very loose. The blade is probably the "pin-end" type - it will have a little cylinder about a 1/4 inch long on each end of the blade. You can buy new blades at any home improvement or hardware store. Besides qualtiy, the main differences will be the length of the blade and the size of the teeth (expressed as TPI or Teeth Per Inch). You need more TPI for cutting harder and thinnner materials, less TPI for softer and thicker material. Put the new blade in like the old one was (teeth pointing down) and tighten the plastic knob. It's hard to be sure how tight is should be, since it doesn't suddenly tighten up. About a 1/4 turn past where is starts to get noticeably tighter is a reasonable place to start. If the blade pops off during use, it wasn't tight enough.

I bought a delta scroll saw model number 40-540, the blade was broken. I need to know how to change the blade and what type of blade the saw takes. Thank you

your delta scroll saw has two blade attachment points one under the table and one in the arm. attach under the table first and then in the arm. that way you can be sure to adjust the tension properly.

there are only two styles of scroll saw blade, those with pins and straight blades without pins

look carefully at your saw and you will be able to see which type holder you have

How to install blade in very old model of craftsman scroll saw model 110.27500

I just picked up one of these saws at a yard sale. It looks like it takes a 5 inch pin end coping saw blade. If you tip the saw up you will see a piston under the table into which one end fits. There is a black spring steel receiver under the over arm that takes the other end. You can loosen the guide arm to facilitate installation. The guide is a simple brass knurled head screw with a slot in it. The motor is one of those magnetic vibratory types that is very loud when there is no blade installed, Probably scared the hell out of the seller ;-) My Gain for 5 bucks. This old craftsman stuff is bullet proof, albeit lacking elegance. This looks like a good little tool for cutting out little figures like you would use for decorative yard spinners.
