      Be careful once you get to the point where you attach the saw to the stand. You CAN over tighten the bolts. The steel for the legs just isn't that strong. Mine have bent but I caught it early enough so it isn't a real problem.

          Hi, Welcome, AND Congrats on a great deal you got on your Dremel! Sounds like you purchased the Scrollstation with the disc sander?

          I have the 1680 Dremel and really like it, though I don't have any experience with which to compare, except a Ryobi 16" I tried and took back because it vibrated so much. The 1680 as out of my budget, then I saw it at a store marked for only 110 -- when I asked if that was the correct price, the cashier said "Well it is for you because that's what it was marked!" Next time I saw it the price was $179. So now is the season for good finds on Dremels, it seems!

          Mine came with a stand. Most important thing for me was to assemble all forty billion nuts barely tight, mount the saw, shift the stand till I got everything level, leave the level on the saw table, and start tightening, keeping a good eye all the time, every bolt, on the level. If it went off a little, then I loosened the previous nut, shifted it back to perfect again, and tightened it up again. The stand definitely took a bit of patience!

          Welcome and all the best,

          Ann

              New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

              It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

              Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

              I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
              on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
