  • Hello, From Eastern Nebraska!

    Just want to say hi to everyone and SCROLL-ON!

    My name is Rick and I'm a retired Teamster and live here in Omaha!

    I've been a woodworker for over thirty year's, both as a hobby pastime and professional. I have been doing serious scroll sawing for about 12 year's and most of my interest is in Intarsia and Fret Scrolling. I'm an RBI person and recently bought me a Hawk G4, and love it! I'm President of the Omaha Woodworkers Guild and like to help and learn from other scroller's and other people.

    Thanks for having me aboard and change that blade often,
    Old Scrollers Never Die...They Just Saw Away!

              Welcome, Rick. I've only been woodworking for a short time so I always am glad to see seasoned 'pros' like yourself join the group. Hope we get to see some of your work.

                            Welcome Rick. I remember going to Nebraska as a kid and when I got out tof the car I was neary blown away. When my Father picked me up, I asked him how long does the wind blow? His comment was "Forever". So we moved to Kansas where the wind don't blow one day a year.

                            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                by Rolf
                                I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                                I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                                I used...

                                If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                                After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                                I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                                Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                                Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
