  • Yep - I'm a newbie

    I am brand new to scroll sawing. (Which translates into - I know nothing about it). Just got a new Delta 695 20" scroll saw and in the instructions it states to "secure stand to floor before use". Is that necessary? Not to excited about putting holes into my garage floor.

    No you don't need to secure it to the floor. You may want to add a couple of sand bags to the bottom to keep it more stable.

        Welcome to the forum! I have an EX 21 mounted on a stand, but, the stand is not bolted to the floor and it is a wood floor and I have no vibration except at very high speeds, but, I cut at about 3/4 speed anyway. So no need to bolt to floor, but, as Mike said you could place sand bags or sac crete on stand frame.

          I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

          What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

          I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

          Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
