I wanted one for a looong time but yesterday....

My wishes came true B)

Got me one of these:

or if you want the US specs :D

Tried it out and wow :D

One question though...

How hard should I tension the saw blade?

I googled it and saw (haha) a reference that the flex should be max 1/4" when you have 6" saw height...

But doesn't that depend on the width of the blade!?

Boy thats handy with a sander disc as well. Does it have enough power for heavy sanding without slowing or stalling the motor?

Its important not to over-tighten the blade as it puts excess load on the bearings and blade. 1/4" free play is probably correct. The manual should give this detail anyway. Check the guide rollers are set as per the manual as well.

I haven't tried it that much yet, only on a scrap piece of maple and some ash.

So I can't comment on the heavy sanding part. But I'll get to that.

I checked the manual yesterday and couldn't find any tips on free play.

I'm gonna double check the guide rollers to day. :D

Guys never grow up, it's only the toys that get more expensive.... right :D
