Happy to hear you got your new saw. The obvious thing is to throw away any blades that came with it as they are useless. Check for any for and aft movement of the blade with it on slow speed and if you have any this can be adjusted by loosening the bolts that hold the motor and turning it one way or the other. I could e-mail you an article on this if you need it. When I unpacked mine I found one of the small bolts on the lower arm was minus a nut and washer and all the bolts were extremely loose, there has to be play in the arms but not as much as I had. I wish you well with the new saw. Keep us posted on how you get on with it, With me I am saving for a hegner although the AWFS is tempting.

Geoff.

Hi Doddy.
Your new saw will be much better than the last one you had. If you have any trouble with the set-up take a look at Steve Goods Scrollsaw workshop. He has 3 videos where he does a review of the EX21 which is the same saw but smaller.
Hope you have a good day tomorrow.
Roy
