  • New to scrolling

    Hello! I'm brand new to scroll saws. I bought a Craftsman saw a week or so ago, tried it once and hated it for a number of reasons. I had already returned one because it wouldn't run at all. I'm returning it this weekend and just purchased an EX16 to replace it. Looking forward to creating some art in wood. I'm sure I'll get some great tips here.

    When I started crafting many years ago I bought a little craftsman scrollsaw. It was about $120.00 and didn't last until the water got hot.
    Altho I do have a craftsman bandsaw and it has served me well over the years and I love it. Never ....so far ...had any trouble with it.
    But that cheap scrollsaw was a waste. And LOUD.

    I'm going to get an EX pretty soon...soon as the work is finished and paid for on my shop.I'm not wasting money on anything cheap this time.

      The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
      I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

      As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...

      The receptacle on the Festool dust collector can be a little particular about the things plugged into it. If the prongs do not fit tightly it sometimes does not work - bend them out very slightly and you may be good to go. I have one tool that has that problem.
