  • 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,

                        by Teacher
                        My son is getting married and my wife fell in love with a pattern named "Sylvia's wedding cross". Apparently that design was done by a person who is no longer on this forum and it is rather an old one as far as I can tell through searching. From posts I have searched several have made it....

                        Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                        Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                        My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...
