  • Hello from Sylvania, OH

    Hello...I think this is my first post here, I know I have been looking around quite a bit. Anyway, like I said, I am from Sylvania, OH, just outside Toledo. I have been woodworking for about 12 years or so, but just picked up a SS a few weeks ago.

    HD was clearancing out the Ryobi 16" so I grabbed one. Been pretty happy so far, even with it's limitations, which I expected. I've actually sold a few projects from it already, so I think it has paid for itself .

      Welcome... keep your eyes open for an upgrade on the saw (craigslist or similar), you'll be surprised how much difference there is with a better saw. Happy scrolling!

        When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

        I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

        Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
        I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
