  • Hello from a Newbie!

    Hi.
    I am fairly new to scrolling. I did some work years ago on a Sears Craftsman. I have just upgraded to an Ex-16. I'm currently starting to make some boxes using the scroll saw. Having some tension issues (I should not have adjusted the knob at the back), and I will be ordering some better quality blades.
    I'm looking forward to getting a real start after the holidays!
    Thanks for all the support and information that I have already viewed.

      You will find once you have the tension knob at the back set you will not need to adjust it for quite some time. Go ahead and get the blade to move up and down without much forward to back movement which you can see from the side or by placing a block of wood behind the blade and then watching the blade from the side.
      Then just leave the rear tension knob alone...

          I also own an Excalibur 16 and have found that if you level your top arm with the table using the tension knob it is pretty dead-on. I got this advise from Ray Seymore at Seyco. Enjoy your new saw and send some samples of your work for us to view.

            Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

            Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
