If you own a DeWalt, Delta or Excalibur scroll saw this tip might save you some frustration. The links on the air blower flex hose will eventually crack. The first link that connects to the machine is almost always the one that cracks.
If you have ever tried to replace one of these links you know how difficult they are to get apart. The pictures below show how to make the job much easier.
If you need a replacement flex hose you can buy them directly from DeWalt for $19.95. I think Seyco.com has the replacement for the Excalibur. I have not checked all the models to see if they are all the same so ask before you buy for your saw.
