  • Another Newbie

    Hello from Ohio,
    I'm another new guy to the world of woodworking and wanted to say hi.
    I've been using a scroll saw for maybe a month or so, just upgraded last week from an old, used craftsman saw to a new DW788 and so far I'm loving it.
    I have been reading your forums for a while now, and I have to say there are some really talented people here, I'm sure I'm going to learn a lot and enjoy every minute of it.

    Welcome, Joel. I doubt you will find a more giving and talented membership anywhere. Like you, I've only been scrolling for a short time. So, I really enjoy the insightful comments and wonderful cuttings. Be sure to post some when you feel it's right.

          Oh yeah..we got about 8 or 9 inches in the last few days, it might not sound like much to you, but that much almost shuts this city down.

            You have definately signed up in the right place. I started sawing a couple of weeks ago and I have learned so much from the people on here.

            I have never seen a sight where everybody comes together to help those who are starting out. You got a question or a problem post it and someone will come to the rescue.

                          Excalibur 21 repair #2
                          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....
