  • 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.

          Don't worry be scrolling

                    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.

                        I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                        I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                        Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                        One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                        I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                        Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                        If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
