  • renewing old habits

    I have just retired once again and am looking forward to once again using my scroll saw but much has changed and the fact is that the old saw isnt operable. I really am starting over and wonder what saw would be best ---need suggestions----

    Welcome back to scrolling. Look over the threads about saws in this forum & don't overlook the stickies at the top of the page.

      There is a couple nice Hegners for sale right here and an RBI. Ebay and Craigslist are other good places to find a top quality saw at a good price.
      What are you looking to make with the saw?

        In my opinion, there is no "best" saw that suites everyone. You need to examine what you need in a saw. Then you need to research what is available. Once you have narrowed it down to two or three, then ask questions.

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
