  • Hello from Oregon 2 (too)

    Greetings all. Very new to woodworking, but I have experience building RC planes, so I have a few tools in the shop... er garage. I am looking forward to getting a scroll saw because I love the detail that is possible. I like building RC planes more than flying them... so why not cut that whole part out. =)

    So I have a wealth of books heading my way, but if scrolling is anything like RC plane building, I know books can only get you part way there. I have already learned quite a bit from reading through the forums (I lurked for awhile) including very important information about what to look for in a first saw.

    My wife's father who passed before we married did a lot of woodworking. All over our house his creations sit or hang. I never stopped to look at how much work and talent went into them, but I have always appreciated the warmth they add. They are heirlooms that I will pass down to my children, and who knows, maybe with a lot of practice, I can creating something worthy enough to be passed on too.

        Fantastic! Thank you very much for the offer. I am positive that there will be something very quickly that I just can't figure out and would love any help you can offer. Should have my saw set up within a few weeks I hope.

          Very cool... I really never thought of building a RC boat... but I bet it would be fun. Lots of small lakes where I live.

            What is a RC Boat? Can't be made of Royal Crown or can it? People make anything from anything any more.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

              Welcome from another R/C builder/flyer from the left coast. I started this hobby about a year ago.

                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                If I were in the market for a new...

                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
