  • Hello from Longueuil

    Hi,

    I just purchased a DW788 for my birthday last weekend and found this forum by running a search on "DW788" on my favorite search engine: dogpile.com.

    I've looked at some of the threads and found it interresting enough to sign-up.

    I have a LOT to learn as I've never used a scrollsaw before, I don't have a lathe, but I have a well equiped shop.

    I may not have much to show for a while, or to say either, but I will be taking in all the information I can grab and participating where I can.

    BTW, for the curious: Longueuil is located on the South Shore of Montreal across the St-Lawrence river. It is the 4th biggest city in the province of Quebec, Canada. French is my mother tongue, and I'm fluent in both French and English.

    Talk to you soon,
    Marcel

        Welcome Marcel! I hope you enjoy your visits.

        BTW: Can you help with the pronunciation of your city? Is it something like lon-'kee-el? Americanized pronunciation might be something like long-oil so it won't be that I am sure.

            Welcome Marcel!!! You're gonna like it here. You really made it tough on a West Virginia Hill Billy to pronounce your home town!! I can pronounce Marcel however and you're going to become addicted to scrolling!! Stop by and chat even if you haven't finished a project yet. We have answers to just about any question regarding scrolling and even "the meaning of life". BTW... I love your search engine...DOG PILE????
            If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

              Actually long-oil is pretty close, I haven' found a word in english that is close to the true prononciation of the "ueuil" part, but if you know the french prononciation for "eye" (oeil) it's the same.

              The closest I can come up with is "long-heu-ye", and saying it aloud myself it sounds right. But you guys throw in your local accents and I'm not responsible for accuracy anymore

                  by handibunny
                  It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                  I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                  This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                  If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                  I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
