  • Finally Decided on saw upgrade.

    I've read everything (reviews & comments) everywhere I could find. And in my price range, the DeWalt and Excalibur came up most posative. I looked at both and found a stouter table on the Dewalt but, really like that tilting head on the Excalibur. Tossed and turned and mulled for a few nights and decided I could not go wrong with either one. Was leaning toward Ex and finally decided on it because of that flat table, positive angle settings, and support. If I had been using a tilting table for a long time, I'd have gone with the Dewalt, or even checked further into a couple others.

    I was tempted by a $400 Hegner on CL but, decided against because as a new scroller, I want to be sure of what I'm getting. That would have been great if I was adding a machine.

    Thanks to all of you that put tips and reviews on all the machines.

    Looking forward to pics of the new saw with sawdust on it, under it, around it...

          The 16 is what I ordered from Seyco. If I do something 12" that will be huge for me.

            Congrats Regis on the new saw. I look forward to your impressions, once you've had a chance to put it through it's paces.

                  "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                  I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                  My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                  None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
