  • First Scroll Saw

    I'm looking to buy a saw and have narrowed it down to two different brands, can't make up my mind. Which one is the best of the two? The Hawk or the Hegner?

    I like the hawk, but I'm sure there's other opinions. Imho the rbi hawk is the best saw out there (my bias is showing).

        Im very happy with my hegner ......had it for 2 years now.
        My friend's hegner convinced me when looking for a new saw ...15 years of use and just replaced a $5.00 bearing (non OEM) Cant comment on the hawk as they dont seem to be available in Australia.

          Both are very good saws and around the same price. I have the Hawk 220 and 226. That is my recomendation and beside they are made in the good old U.S.A.!!!!!!!!

            Our feed belt keeps moving but Bruce did adjust it the other day when I was done and this is the first time I’ve used it. It kept getting louder so I bet that’s it or it just isn’t tight. Will check it in the morning. Thanks.

            Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
            I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

            I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

            I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

            Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

            Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...
