  • 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 perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

      Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.

      I have a magnetic sheet on my EX for over 2 years and still smooth, once in awhile I sprayed it with greaseless lube and wood slide real good. Highly recommended.
