 Re: RDG Gouging Machine Care

Hi Sam

I have a RDG machine my self and bought it second or third hand.

Mine has one Allan Key screw to hold and lock the blade down ( its on about 45 deg angle facing the cutting end of the blade) and 3 other fine adjustment screws. if yours is the same it should be just one screw to get the blade off. the other 3 screws would feel suck if the screw locking the blade down was tight.

I hope that helps. other wise WD-40 or better to remove the rust should do if that's all it is.

After you put in a new or sharpen blade in there will be a lot's of adjusting to do. and lots of cane wast.

Nicholas
