    Hello Scroll Saw friends,
    I'd like to introduce myself as a new member. I live in Benoni, South Africa and I do not have a lot of experience but I learn fast and would really appreciate all the help I can get from you.
    I am close to retirement age and have an engineering and foundry background. I own a CNC router engraver and a nice collection of woodworking machines. I welcome all questions and comments, and look forward to spending a lot of time creating some great items.

        Reply to Question about tilting head saws
        by Bill Wilson
        I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...
