  • Question ?

    If I turn up the speed on my scroll saw does that mean I'll make mistakes faster?

    I guess it would if you don't watch what you are doing.

      That got a chuckle from me for sure. In my case it sure could.
      Turning sharp corners with a high speed sometimes makes nice big circles.
      I do need to practice more.

          I have full speed about 98% of the time. Just let the blade do the cutting. To make turns, I put pressure on the back of the blade and just turn the wood.

            I agree with Mike. My Hegner is belt driven and I keep it at the fastest speed and just slow my feed rate. You learn how to do it very fast or you do make plenty of mistakes. When I cut on the slower speed Hegner saw it seems to slow.

              Maybe not any faster, but in my experience, they are GREATLY magnified.

              When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                I have found that the speed I have saw set at has does not cause me to make mistakes faster they just show up sooner. I slow my feed rate down for higher saw speed.
