  • New Scroll Saw Care

    I just received my first scroll saw and it's new. What do you recommend to remove the anti-rust oily coating on the table? Is there anything I should put on the table after the oil is removed?

    With my saw I used a good paste wax.Don't use anything with silicone in it. If you don't have paste wax take some waxed paper and roll it into a ball and use it. Have fun with your new saw.

    When you hit rock bottom the only answer is to look up

      Awesome advice on the wax paper!

      I had seen that before but I had totally forgotten.
      My saw has a teflon table, but I see the teflon is staring to show signs of wear.

      Hmmm if nothing sticks to teflon , how do they get it to stick?

        No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

        I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure black and white is easier...

        Just Wondering...

        Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

        With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

        I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

        Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....
