    Hi all,

    Just joined , new to scroll sawing, my new machine was ordered last week and is on its way. I'm looking forward to this and hope to find it enjoyable. Never did much with wood, I'm an old machinist so I'm trying something new.

      Cool...
      This should be interesting...
      I think the first thing you'll notice is that wood is softer than metal...hehehe

      Be warned, a scroll saw is only as precise as your own hands...
      ...and once you get going, it's really addictive...

      Welcome..!!!
      Can't wait to see what you come up with...

        Welcome... I'm sure the fudge factor is a lot higher with wood than your used to. Be sure to post pictures.

            Welcome dlandis. Was wondering what saw you ordered. Hope you can find what you want in scrolling. We did. Like Jim say's, it's addictive. We look forward to seeing some of your work, & don't worry about being new, just enjoy yourself. Good Luck

              I ordered a Shop Fox w1713. I read an article rating different scroll saws and this one came highly recommended for the beginner.

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
