Re: Angle and gap problems. Knife Block issue?

Also bear in mind that a Morso was designed on its final cut to only shave the face of wood mitres some plastic mouldings prefer a much wider final cut as the shave cut can disturb the surface on man made materials.

Re: Guide lock handle, tighten ?

Yes the handle just sits over the nut and the O-ring is fitted to the nut to stop it working loose but over time the handles do tend to stick themselves to the O-ring so yes a flat bladed screw driver is required to gently lever the handle off.

Re: Underpinner help (Alfamachines Minigraf 44)

Daft question?

When you replaced the hammer did you fit it the correct way round? the earlier Minigraf hammers had a flat top which could be oriented either way but the newer hammers have a raised lip which must face toward the wedges.

Re: New morso blades stiff

The bottom blades may need moving outward very slightly to allow the cutting blades to pass without binding.

Re: Cassese cartridge wedge not firing

Debbie

Changing the spring on a Cs79 is a little bit of a faff so if you have any issues or are unsure how to go about fitting it then give me a call my mobile number is on my websites contact page.
Thanks for the order!

Re: Cassese cartridge wedge not firing

Debbie It could be caused by the wedge slider (the part that is attached to the pull cord) sticking in its slot due to dirt/grime, if so spray some wd40 on the slider and work it back and forth to clean or possibly down to a weak cartridge spring which no longer has sufficent tension to pull a full ...

Re: Top Presser Issue

Cut 2 small pieces of the same moulding on your Morso but with the rebate pointing the opposite way to normal and pin/glue the two cut pieces to form a chevron then just place the chevron upside down on top of the troublesome moulding, your top pad will then make contact with a flat surface.

Re: Cassese CS20 Cart Problem

Could be the pedal has failed which is becoming a very regular fault on Cassese machines since they started fitting cheap chinese branded pedals to their equipment.
If its under warranty contact your supplier.

Re: Minigraf 4 advice for a novice

Alfamacchine make a great range of underpinners so don't be concerned about there robustness or reliability, my only concern would be the fact you are primarily using 78mm wide moulding and the Minigraf 4 (depending on build date) is limited to either 2 or 3 different wedge positions and you may req...

Either the clamp control valve is jammed in the 'on' position or the foot pedal valve is faulty.

Re: ok so simons have suggested this underpinner

Neither.
The UNI version uses changeable wedge blocks just like the Alphas, the Cart does not.
Both models suffer from cheap/nasty moulding fences and only use elastic to pull the wedges forward.

Re: ok so simons have suggested this underpinner

The Alpha is a solid machine but lacks some features that you may find handy, as others have said changing wedge blocks does become a chore even for small scale users and the inability to adjust the moulding fences also has an impact on joint quality. Personally i would look for a used Cassese Cs88 ...

Re: Looking for CASSESE CS940or similar

Russ The Cs940 is brand new to the market (i am yet to see one in the UK) so will be impossible to purchase second hand for the foreseeable future. Brevetti Prisma mitre saws are worth a look as their capabilities are similar to the Cassese, Wessex have them listed (new) on their website but these d...
