  • 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,

                        Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                        What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                        And now for the questions

                        I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                        Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                        BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
