    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.

          I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

          Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

          Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

          The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

          WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
