  • Craftsman 16 Inch Var speed

    Bought a used but in good condition Craftsman 16 inch scroll saw. No info with it and was wondering what the large red knob on the end of the frame is used for. It has a black tightening knob on top. Red knob is marked "tension" and "release". Any help appreciated. Thanks, K-hornet

        I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made.

        The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

        Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
