  • 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.
        I am a nobody and no body is perfect...........therefore I am perfect

          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.!!!!!!!!

            Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
            That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

            If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

            The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

            You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
