    A couple of short vids showing the laser line changing position & the cutting.

    Sorry about the video quality........if I was a quality cameraman, I'd be working in the movie profession.

    How did you get the laser to be beside the cut line?
    Mine is right on the cut line which means that the blade takes 1mm off past the laser line.

    Difference in size from my old broken Electra Beckum to the Swarts

    but I only had to drop my recessed section of the bench for the SCMC by 5mm for the table of the SCMS to be the same height of the adjoining benches

    This is a direct statement from Swarts Tools website for the SCMS........

    "New to the Australian market our saw boasts internal bar ultra-smooth ball bearingslides. These allow you to put the saw right up against a wall or at the very the edge of a bench without the slides extending out the back of the saw like other models."


    This statement is correct in respect to the saw being able to placed up against the wall UNLESS you want to use the supplied dust bag. If the bag is used it protrudes approx 100mm past the rear of the machine when in the full back position. So the SCMS would have to be pulled away from the wall and take up more bench space if the dust bag is utilised. The saw would be able to be back against the wall if a shop vac or DC was attached with an elbow on the exhaust duct on the saw.

    Cheers

    Scott

    Wow, a bit off subject, but you certainly haven't wasted too much time filling up that new shed.

    Equipment sure is getting cheaper

    I just had a look at posts from people that had bought the same model Electra Beckum as mine.

    Discovered a post by a British woodworker who was extremely pleased that he got a discount on his and paid 269 back in 2002. I knew I paid a far bit but can not remember the amount. That was about $500 in 2002 dollars. You can pick up similar machines for $200-$300 now.

    Whoops! Getting my forum members crossed up. I guess it's a byproduct of ageing.

    My Swarts has gone off square. The blade is no longer square to the fence. I thought it was originally but now I am cutting wide boards for real work I see it is way out of square. Perhaps something is loose. I'll have to refer to the manual to figure out where to adjust that.
    Yes you can cut quite wide boards on this beast. These boards are about 300mm.

    Dave,

    If you look at one of my earlier posts you will see that squaring the fence to the blade is not in the manual but easy to adjust...just need a 6mm allen key
