  • 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.

          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.

            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.

                Just Wondering...

                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
