  • Hello from a Semi-noob

    I just wanted to say Hi before I got to the main forums. Found the site a few days ago and have been lurking up until now but I must say that this is quite the community and one that I'll be glad to join.

    Thanks
    Carl

          The name is actually a two way street. Number 1 is that I love to work with wood, and number 2 is that my wifes last name used to be Wood. She's one of the main reasons I'm here. I'm always looking to get more tools and when I pointed out scrolling to her she has got all sorts of excited so sometime in the near future I'm going to be ordering a dewalt 788 for "her".

          Thank you for all of your kind comments so far.

          Carl

            Welcome Carl. Glad to meet you. As for the scrollsaw for "your wife". Don't be surprised if you don't get to use it much!! Once she uses it and gets addicted to it, you won't be allowed near it!! And make sure "she" wants the dewalt. After all it is going to be "her" saw and she might have something else in mind!! Show us your, and your wife's, finished work. I would post mine in here, but I still haven't figured it out yet! Oh well, I can't be "great" at everything!!!

              Well this weekend I picked up a variety of blades and ordered the Dewalt 788 from Amazon. I was able to get it for $370 after a $50 dollar instant rebate and free shipping so

              I was able to borrow some scroll saw books from my mom so hopefully by the end of next week "my wife" will be sawing away.

              Wish us luck

              Carl

                After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
