  • Blade alignment problem solved!!!

    Thank you all for your helpful suggestions. I found several problems.
    (1) The "0" stop was keeping the table from being level(I didn't know I needed to check it). (2) There was a burr on the upper arm blade clamp. (3) I think a little of the problem might have been operator malfunction!! The saw seems to be working fine now. I actually cut out a Christmas ornament yesterday,and still have all my fingers(well,except for the one I lost in 1979,but that's another story!!) Thank you,thank you. Roadhog

    Way cool, Roadhog!
    We're now looking foreward to hearing about what you're cutting.
    Happy sawdust making!

      That's good news! Nothing worse than chomping at the bit to try out a new toy and not have it work right.

          Roadhog,

          Glad you resolved the problem with the scrollsaw.

          That Christmas ornament you cut... KEEP IT!!!

          You need to have something to compare your progress with, and believe me, you'll be amazed at how fast and how much progress you will make.

          Ah yes, one more thing, take a picture of it and show us.
          We are a funny bunch that way, we like to see people's work.
          We like to offer encouragement and constructive advice as well.

          Regards,

            I think what Marcel means is : Take a picture of the ornament to show us.We all enjoy seeing one anothers projects and progess.

            I'm sure he did NOT mean : Take a picture of your missing limb. We are a totally mixed up bunch, and like seeing stuff like that.

            Ok, That was meant as humor, I hope everyone realizes that. Roadhog, congrats on getting your saw going.As Marcel said, you will make huge strides at scrolling rather quickly, and the scrollsaw will take over your life! You wont ever want to stop cutting! Dale

              Way to go Roadhog. You've already shown you have patience and persistence, the 2 main ingredients of a happy scroller. Throw in a little humor and you've got it made.

                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
