I've had some increase in reports of broken
blades recently - meaning more than the occasional
breakage that seems to be normal. In addition to
having the blades broken, at least some were stuck
on the spindle - and when it's stuck, you usually
can't get it off of the spindle without breaking
the blade. I've cleaned up the spindle and installed
a new S-3030 blade. It went on smoothly, and I
tried removing it and reinstalling it several times;
so blade changing works normally now.
From now on - all users who experience the
blade stuck to the spindle, send me an e-mail.
I'll try to track down the cause of this.
Note - there are only 2 more S-3030 blades left
on the shelf in the stockroom as of Aug 15,
until Tony gets a new shipment in.
