    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?

      If you need a tool and don't buy it, you will pay for it and not have it

          I too use hot glue around the edges. I typically size my blanks, so as to not have large waste areas, but there isn't anything about the hot glue that would prevent me from re-using them....

          Thank you Karl, I to have seen these baskets at goodwill. I guess the reason they are so cheep is because they are easy to make. To cut your collapsible basket you just tilt your saw table to the left 4 to 5 degrees (for the basket only). For those of you that would like to find patterns check out this...

          Nice work Eugene.

          You know the sad part about our scroll saw work is where it ends up. I was just a Goodwill and saw a collapsible basket there with a price of only a few dollars.
