  • Which saw to buy?  Consider this...

    This is from a want ad in our local paper. It says a lot about scroll saws. 20' RBI Hawk with 10 hrs. of use. $950.00 Dremel Scroll Saw with stand; $200.00.

    There are some really great high-end machines such as the RBI's and Hegner's, then you drop down to the Dewalt, and after that you get to the rest. The 'rest' may be good enough, but if you're going to pay $300 for a mediocre saw, you might want to spend another $100 to get a good one

    Amen - My first saw was a Ryobi thought it was kind of cool until I got a DeWalt. Used the DeWalt for a couple years then broke down and got an RBI about 4 years ago and couldn't be happier. Is the RBI worth the extra money? Depends on how much you plan on using it I guess, I feel it was, but that's me.

But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

      Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

      What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

      Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

      I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

      Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
