    Hello everyone, I'm John and I just got my new Dw 788 last night, I can't wait to start scrolling. I do have a question about what I've been hearing on the table top being off, Can anyone tell me more about what I should be looking for? Thanks

      Hi John,

      I moved your posts to your own thread so you can get better answers.

      The fire dept patterns you will likely find in one of the two Free scrollsaw pattern group or

      Look in the archive or ask. I'm sure I've seen one before.

      As for the DW788. use a straight edge and see if your top is flat. The problem is noticed around the hole where the blade passes through the table. It seems that the punching of the hole causes a slight distortion (dimple or bump effect).

      And welcome to the group, hope to see some of your efforts at making sawdust soon.

      DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

        Thanks so much for the answer, I'm going to be doing a lot of playing around this weekend to get use to the new saw.

            sorry.... lay a straightedge across your table, it should be flat, or reasonably flat. If much more then a couple sheets of paper slips tween the table and straight edge, you should contact their customer support folks. Dale

              Hi JP I can see buy your name , that you must be a firemon. and to start, I wont you to know , you guys are some of my most favorite and loved heroes. living in calif. we have lots and lots of fires. and I just don't know what we would do without you. and I will take this oppertunity to thank you for all you do for us. I tryed to give you a link to some free scrollsaw pattern places, but i get shut off. so maybe Marcel can put it up for you.

                      I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

                      Just Wondering...

                      Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                      With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                      I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                      Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                      I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                      If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
