  • Newbie Says Hello

    Just want to introduce myself. My name is Tony Cunningham and I live in Paris, Texas. I am just now beginning in woodwork and am still in the process of purchasing saws and tools. I am still undecided about which scroll saw to buy. I think it has been narrowed down to Delta 40-690, Dewalt 788, or Excalibur 16; so, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am joining this site to learn and to meet other scrollers. Thanks for reading this have a great day!

      The delta is a clone of the dewalt so it is a matter of price there and the excalibur is a superior machine to both of those mentioned. I have a 788 and the ex21 loved my 788 really am in love with my ex21.

        Thanks so much for your input Mike! I am leaning toward the Excalibur because I am only about 1 1/2 hr away from Sayco, and service means a lot to me.

          If you are leaning anyway, here is a gentle nudge to topple you all the way. You won't be sorry.

            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.
