    Hello! I am new here, obviously, and just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I have only been scroll sawing for about two years, unfortunately the last year has been pretty dormant but I'm ready to get back to one of my favorite hobbies. Not sure how often I'll be posting due to two full time jobs (work and my 8 week old daughter) but I'm looking forward to learning new things and getting to know others with my same joy of the craft.

          Hello Catlyn, I have a Dewalt 788. It's a bit dusty at the moment, my husband is a furniture maker, and it hasn't been used in a year. I'm ready to get back into it. I will post some pictures of one of my past projects. I unfortunately don't have very many as most have been given away as gifts and I wasn't forward thinking enough to take pictures.

            The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

            When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
            Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

            Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
            by mccrookston
            First time posting.
            I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
            I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
            Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
            Any ideas on what might be causing...

            That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
