  • Lucky newbie with a Hegner :)

    Hi, everyone

    I've been browsing this for a few months and inspired by many great scrolling results, I'm sure I want to start this hobby

    Recently I bought a set of pre-loved Hegner 2S combined with a Festool dust extractor, although it is a single speed scroll saw, with the very attractive price it can't be resisted to get it

    I started up the Hegner and test run it last night, it is simply awesome ! compare to the cheap saw that I got for expriment, it makes scrolling an entirely different enjoyment.

    I'm sure I'll have many questions to you guy later

      Nothing wrong with a single speed. Most of us never change the speed anyway. And Hegner is one (if not the one) of the best.. Good Luck

      When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

        Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

        Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

        Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

        I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

        Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
