  • Hello from East Tennessee

    Hi,
    I'm Sam from East Tennessee... And I think I am becoming addicted....

    I have never owned a scroll saw until now. There are several times I have almost purchased one but, for whatever reason, didn't follow through.

    I bit the bullet and purchased a Hawk.. Just got it in today. A friend of mine was wanting one and got me interested again. So we both ordered one.

    I have been doing sand carving/blasting for a little while now and, after looking at many of my patterns, found I could easily use them with a scroll saw. Some will not need any changes and others will need to change a little.

    Eventually, after LOTS of mistakes I'm sure, I plan on combining the two to create some ideas I have running around in my head.

    I look forward to getting to know the good folk associated with this forum.

    Sam

      Welcome Sam, once you have been bitten by a scroll saw you become addicted. I took up scrolling when I retired in 1992, I do other woodworking but enjoy scrolling the most. Seems to be relaxing to me. Check out www.mikesworkshop.com for blades and great information on blades. I am in no way affiliated with Mike other than being a satisfied customer. Enjoy it. Mick.

        Welcome. Sam!
        Sounds like you have got the full-blown scroll saw bug - you will have plenty of company here. Keep us informed on how you are progressing, especially with marrying the two arts.

          Thanks for the warm welcome.

          Found a deal with a furniture mfg. company that went out of business. Got 1/8" to 3/8" solid core, finished, plywood (the type/size used at the end of kitchen cabinets, etc.) for 25 cents a pnl. (About 24 sq foot for $1)
          Lots of door pnls, etc...

          Again thanks...

          Sam

                After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
