  • 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 fees here in Lubbock Texas are $45 per year plus $15 per 10' x 10' space each Saturday that I show up. . Crafters are limited to number and type (to avoid duplication, competition) Any kind of set up allowed, meaning, tent or truck or trailer. No insurance requirements, just a sellers permit from...

            Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

            As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
