        Welcome peterBA, would love to see your project. Not mandatory to post photos here, but sure appreciated. Did you know that the owners of this forum also publish a scrolling magazine? You can subscribe right from this site. Lots of ideas and information in the magazine. Just a suggestion for ya.

          Hi Peter - good to see another Brit in the group. We're in the minority here but we make ourselves felt!

          You've come to a great, homely forum with a very mixed bunch of scrollers at all different levels from complete newbies like yourself to superbly skilled masters in their hobby or profession. What you will find above all is plenty of help, advice, new ideas and if you join in the fun and games you'll meet a lot of really nice people worthy of being called friends.

          Spend a little time looking around the site and don't be afraid to post any questions however stupid or elementary you think they might be. Also, as has been mentioned, post photos of your work. We are not judgmental here. We really like to see all levels and kinds of scrolling work and for newbies especially this is a great way to get tips and advice on how to improve their work.

          Above everything else, have fun!

            Welcome Peter. I'm intrigued by your work and I've never come across Foamex before, can you paint it?

            A photo of your work would be great

            Also this site has a pattern vault Free Scroll Saw Pattern Vault - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Message Board which might give you some seeds for future projects.

            Good Luck
            Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

              The Hegner like some other saws have a sweet spot or not so sweet spot where they may vibrate. I know they need to have a solid footing.
              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...
