  • 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.

      He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

      Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

      I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
