  • Hello from NJ!

    Hi everyone! Brand new to scrolling. Ended up falling into it kind of on accident. I've enjoyed wood working for a few years but put it on the side due to work and family obligations. We ended up wanting to make a few hand made wooden puzzles for our son so I threw some wood through my band saw and it just wasn't going my way.

    I saw the scroll saw, purchased and made my first little puzzle for my boy. I was impressed by how tight I could make cuts. I started poking around online at some things that can be done with a scroll saw and I have to say I am completely shocked at the designs and intricate projects done by the scroll saw.

    So just seeing the capabilities I am hooked. I look forward to learning from everyone and perhaps one day I can share some knowledge !

            Welcome aboard. I'm also in NJ and have been cutting just about anything except intarsia for 12+ years. Pictures please, we love them and our critiques are constructive and designed to make you a better scroller. What saw do you have?

              It is addicting, and I'm down in Ocean County outside of LBI.

              sawdustus, I'm still learning how to make tight turns and get the overall feel for using the saw so I don't have anything picture worth yet ! Rest assured I will !

              I don't have any elaborate saw, just grabbed a Ryobi 16" from Home Depot. Thanks for the replies!

                Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

                The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
                I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

                As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...
