  • Hello

    Hello, I just joined this group and wanted to say hello. I have been ww for about one year and decided to try ss. I picked up a old Duro 12" saw dirt cheap. This will allow me to get started with this for a low cost and find out if I like it or not.

          Welcome to the gang AL, always remember you get what you pay for.I'm just saying that because if your saw was dirt cheap it might not do a good job on your work,my two cents lol.Anyway welcome.

                    Welcome

                    I agree on the cheap saws! I tried out 2 deltas which both broke within a couple of weeks of getting them. After I bought my Dewalt, no more problems!

                      I agree with others. My first saw was a Carpsman and got so sick of it I put it in a corner and didn't try scrolling for over 2 years.

                      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.

                        I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
