  • Long time member done little to no scroll sawing.

    Ok, I joined this group way back in 2012. Have done virtually no work since. However, quite recently I got the need to fill a lifelong ambition to build and furnish a dollhouse. so for some of the very small intricate work a scroll saw was needed. So I purchased the Harbor Freight Central Machinery one. Cue the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    It came with the hanger type attachments. I was wondering what are your thoughts on POZSGAI'S DESIGNS EZ Set Blade Holder System at $38.49 or this one from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Olson-AC49610...s%2C180&sr=8-2

    Sorry but no experience with either. For the price it may help. Surely it is a cheaper option than dropping $700 on another saw.

    If you do go down this road please post how it turned out. It might help or save someone else.

    PLEASE POST PICTURES OF THE DOLL HOUSE. We would love to see it.

      I would go with Pozgai, I have the clamp mods he designed for the Hawks on my Hawk saw. His stuff is well engineered and well made.
      And like Scott said post pictures as you go "Please"

          I puchased the POZSGAI'S DESIGNS EZ Set Blade Holder System 4 years ago and it works fine on my cheap EINHELL scrollsaw. It was a good upgrade.
          Feel free to ask.

            I would not invest any more cash in the Harbor Freight scroll saw. I had one, and it did not work so I sent it back. They sent me another and I used it 6-7 times and the speed controller died. So I then quit scrolling for a few years and eventually bought a DeWalt.

              No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

              I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure black and white is easier...

              I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

              Just Wondering...

              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?
