    Hello folks. A short time ago I bought a scroll saw mainly for a project I was doing. Oh darn I said, I have to shop for another tool. lol During this project I fell in love with this versatile tool and wanted to use it more and more. I purchased books and other material and became excited. But those intricate cuts and turns just blows me away. So I'm here to learn what I can. Thanks for being here.

    Welcome, and thanks for joining the forum family. We learn things from each other all the time, and it's great to have as large a base as possible. The scroll saw sure is a versatile tool as you call it, and we would love to see some of your projects if you decide to post them.
    Posting photos is not mandatory around here, but sure appreciated.

      You're going to have a lot of fun with that saw. All those intricate cuts and shapes are just results of a bit of practice and not being afraid to turn wood into sawdust, and sometimes, into designer firewood. We've all done it and are having more fun than anyone should be allowed to have. Jump right in, spend some time in the older posts and don't forget to check in with photos and observations.

              Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

              Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

              The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

              Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...
