  1. Air nozzle assembly does a GREAT job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2019

    My RBI Hawk came with a simple tube that pointed in the general direction of where the cutting occurs. It was held in place by a thick wire that never really allowed me to point the air flow in the proper direction to fully remove the sawdust whilst operating the scroll saw. Since I bought the saw used, I don't know if the thick wire holding the tube in place was the way it was manufactured or if it was a "fix" by the previous owner. I'm guessing it was a fix because I don't think ANY manufacturer would have shipped something out that worked so poorly. After receiving the nozzle assembly, I decided that instead of messing with the bellows and replacing the entire hose, I simply snipped the new hose, near the nozzle, and attached the new nozzle to the old tube. I realize I probably don't get as much airflow since I'm still using the old 1/4" hose... but being able to direct the airflow EXACTLY where I want it is what I was wanting to accomplish in the first place. I felt like I was getting enough airflow through the 1/4" hose, I just couldn't get it pointed in the exact location I desired. The flexible nozzle attached easily and I can now get the airflow pointed in the exact spot where I need it. For me, it was a bit on the pricey side... but WELL worth the money! Since I have plenty of hose left, I may take the time to hook the new hose up to the bellows and see if that actually does make much difference. All that to say... even with using the 1/4" hose and the flexible nozzle, it works GREAT!

  2. Replaced dust blower 5 Star Review

    The dust blower that I ordered was very good made and works better than original one that came with the saw.

  3. Why just replace when you can upgrade? 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2018

    If I had removed my broken part first, I could have figured out how to install the new part. I called Hawk and they walked me through it, as usual. The bracket was rather large and could have had a third hole to get the air hose further away from the table. The new hose delivers much more air than the old one.

  4. No news is good news 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    Since I ordered this for my brother in law and we were a little unsure when we did since it was the 'larger' replacement of what he had...... and I haven't heard any negative comments from him (and I would have if it didn't work) I have to say.... no news is good news.

  5. Best update yet !! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2018

    Update allows you to adjust air stream to the exact spot. Takes older Hawk units with 1/4" air lines & upgrades them with 3/8" lines from bellows to saw blade, you will notice the increased volume of air. This is a no brainier, upgrade today!!

  7. Perfect Upgrade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2017

    I upgraded my older Hawk with this new hose kit and the pressure increased and the control hose works nicely. I had to drill out just the hole for the hose and grommet below the bellows but that's it. Very easy to install.

  8. Upgrade kit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Oct 2017

    Replaced original (?) cracked and brittle hose. A pleasure to use, just swing it up out of the way for blade changes. Stays where I position it. Had to drill out 2 holes, piece of cake. Love it!

  10. Scroll Sawing at its Best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2017

    Dust control is very good when coupled with an air filter . Is easy to move out of the way and right back when you need it.
