  • Thumbs Up!

    I request late last week for a catalog from the Wooden Teddy bear and guess what came in the mail today? What fast service that was.

    Lee Valley tools gets my thumbs up too. I put in an order late Sunday night and when I came home from work last night I received a shipping confirmation number, that should get to the door step tomorrow.

    Other places I've dealt with and was very happy with the service, fast delivery as well as prices were,

    Sandpaper store
    This place has great prices on all types of sand papers

    Lange Vin Forest

    This place has lots of nice stuff a little to expensive but worth it, but what I love is the selection on books they have


    Marcel, you must know this place? Best prices in town with great service in store to help you make up your mind.

    Berry Basket
    I love this place for patterns no shipping fees just need to click away. I would only wish to have a Catalog to look at instead of going on line.

    If anyone else wants to share places they shop at for supplies and are happy with I would like to know as to increase my selection of place I can get things and get the best prices.

    How much commission are you on from these guys, Eric ?

    I know you're just trying to recommend companies that you've found to give good service, but let's not paint the forum with lots of gratuitous advertising. We're here primarily to exchange knowledge about scrolling techniques. From time to time some members may look for advice about supplies and it's great when we can suggest companies who might be able to assist. Let's try to keep it at that, especially when companies are mentioned that don't reciprocate by extolling the virtues of our host publication.

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

            Another great place to check is the advertising index of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts...Since in one way, they are supporting this forum!


            Under further consideration, I've removed the links from the thread...if anyone wants the information, feel free to PM Eric...but I'm also afraid that people not on the list--especially if they advertise in the magazine--may get upset.

            I agree that it is a good resource, but the direct links makes it too much like advertising for me.

              The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

              When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
              Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

              Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
              by mccrookston
              First time posting.
              I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
              I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
              Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
              Any ideas on what might be causing...

              That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
