  • Boy do i feel du... not smart


    So there i was working on my new project, part of it needs a compound feather. Ive tested a few patterns on some small pieces of wood about 6"X1"X1" or so.

    A few came out ok, a few not so ok. Actually one of my feathers came out looking like a leaf, (now i know how to cut a

    So i decided to cut one close to the finish size about, 12" x3"x3/4" , the wood blank is just a bit bigger.

    So i glue on the pattern, cover with tape admired my work and began to cut.

    cut...cut ....boy im good...cut ...cut....following all the lines......great

    im so good....... mabey i should quit my job and do this full time.....i can sell these things for at least nine thousand dollars......cut....cut......perfect .

    the long flat side is done, now to turn it on its side and do that part, boy im good.

    hey pete you know how wide this feather is...nah never paid any attention to it, looks good right ....yup looks great

    hey you remeber how wide a peice of wood your saw can cut.......nah not off the top of my head why?

    Do you know anyone with a bandsaw that you can finish it off with?

    BTW don't feel bad I have done the same thing. After all the blade is 5" isnt it

          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....
