  • 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.

            Linda,
            Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

            Thanks for posting Carole, Depending on what other time consuming distractions I have I might just have to do a wavy bowl.

            There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

            Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

            In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
