    Hello Everyone, Phestus Here!

    I am a 74 year old retiree and I am just getting into scrolling. I have been a woodturner for about 15 years and was looking for a change of pace. I think I have found it. I live in Colorado and since I don't ski I need something to help get me through the winter months. I look forward to reading all the posts and hopefully one of these days I'll be able to contribute to the forum.

    Many Thanks,

          Thanks for the welcome

          It is great to be a part of this forum. I plan to do some searches on past postings and I'm sure I will find enough good info to keep me busy for quite sometime. I own a Dremel 1671, Type 3 which I bought new a number of years ago, then just put it aside and got into turning in a big way. The 1671 has less than 10 hours cutting time on it. I plan to rectify that situation in the coming months. I really don't know what the difference is between the Type 1, 2, and 3, and between the 1671 and the 1672. I look forward to seeing what others are doing and I'm sure I'll draw some inspiration from that. Thanks again for letting me become a part of this group.

          Best Regards,

              Excalibur 21 repair #2
              by Rolf
              I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
              I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

              I used...

              If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

              After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
              I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

              Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

              Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
