    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.

    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.

After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....

      I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

      Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

      The VacuFlo actually uses...

      I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
      Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
