  • So Excited!

    Just got back from a shopping trip and bought myself a new scrollsaw! I got the Excalliber 16" and it was on sale for $499 and then the sales clerk gave me another $50 off! I think I got a good deal and can't wait to get down into my shop in the morning to set it all up and clear out the old dead craftsman! It has been almost a year since I was scrolling last and the itch is back big time! I already have projects glued up and ready to be cut! Wish me luck in finding my way back to civilization!

          And oh does she purrrrrrrr! Got her all set up this morning and tested her out. Can't imaging how I used to scroll on the craftsman with all the vibration and noise. Absolutely the best investment I have made yet. Now to get to all the projects on my to do list!

            Now you will have to dig out all those patterns you have been saving and dust off the scraps of wood laying around....before you know it, you will have dozens of new items cut. Having a good working saw is half the fun

                    And the best part is that my 8 year old son has shown an interest in it too! Yesterday morning he woke up and asked if he could take it for a test run! lol Now he wants to make something for his teacher for Christmas. Now to find some simpler patterns in my magazines for him to start with and I think we have a new addict in the family! Guess I will have to buy another saw!

                        Sherri, I'm happy for you. That's the kind of shopping to look forward to. I wish they would have had the 16" when I bought my DeWalt. I use spiral blades almost all the time & I wouldn't need the extra depth, but, I'm sure a great saw anyway. Sherri, you are fortunate that you can go in and try a saw or even have a store that sells them. We don't have that kind of store here in Yuma. Lucky to even find wood for projects. Enjoy your new saw & have at it. Take Care

                            Jim, you would have to tilt the whole saw 2.5 degrees just so it felt right.
