  • New machine

    Hello all
    I've recently bought a new Record variable speed 16"scroll saw after a considerable time without. I'm hoping to rekindle my enthusiasm in order to make small items for the grand children. Name plates etc. I'm wondering, does anyone have any opinions due to experience of this saw? I did cut a piece 3/4" thick on the kitchen bench (wife at work) without it being secured and found it cut quite nicely and sat smoothly. The blade in the machine also cut quite smoothly. All comment are welcome. Also are there any templates for nameplates to be recommended on any of the sites, preferably free.

    Hey Allejo, Welcome to the forum. You can go to www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com. That is Steve Good's site. He has a free program you can download to make name plates.

          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

          Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
