    Hi to you all,
    i have been looking around your scroll saw magazine and i am really pleased with what i see, i am a retired woodworker and have used scroll saws along time ago iam getting back into the hobby and looking forward to buying a new machine the one i have at present would sooner go for a dance around my small workshop than cut a piece of timber. If any one would be pleased to drop me a line with a recomendation as to the brand name and model i would be pleased to receive it.

    hope to hear from you soon cheers ken,

      Hi Ken

      Welcome to the group. As far as saws go it comes down to what features you prefer, and the amount you want to spend. I have a Dewalt 788 and have not had any problems yet, when the problems start I will probably go with an Excalibur Ex-21. Hegner, Hawk and Eclipse are also good saws but they can put a real hurting on your wallet.

      Check out Craigslist in your area you might run across a good deal on a used one.

      By any chance is your dancing saw a Craftsman?

      In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

      I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

          Just Wondering...

          Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

          With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

          I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

          Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

          I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

          If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

          Hi Linda, great find...I think.

          Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
