  • Aloha from Hawaii

    Aloha everybody, my name is Tex coming from Oahu. I first started scroll sawing back in 1994 when I was around 12 years old with my dad for around six months and used a brand new hegner multimax 18 variable speed saw. Being just a kid got tired of it and gave it up ( big mistake). Now 18 years later while cleaning out the garage I came across the machine again. To my surprise it still works like a champ (after sanding some rust). Now I'm hooked more than ever knowing that there are great websites like this to broaden my horizon. I thank all of you who took the time to share your knowledge with newbies like me. I'm excited to start scrolling again and looking forward to sharing my projects to you all

    Much Mahalo,

    Tex

                        Welcome to the forum from TN. The bowls and basket are beautiful. Bowls are fun to make, I especially like making bowls from Carole Rothman's books.

                        U Just bought another year of Scrollmania

                        I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

                        Fix a 10 year old bug that didn't allow Scrollmania to move to different machines.
                        Rewrite the Load and Save functions so they no longer require flash. You apple users will like it.

                        Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

                        Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

                        Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

                        I can definitely see in your Heron that...
