  • Different way to shape ginger jar!!

    Good afternoon friends and Happy Easter!! I'm getting a chance to work in the shop today. Working on the ginger jar I plan on entering at the fair. I've gotten down to the the shaping part which is not my favorite after my last fiasco. I practically destroyed the lip and top of it!! Thank goodness Carole helped my straighten that one out. I got to the place where I was to glue the lip on, then the center ring, then shape. I thought it would be so much easier for me shape without the lip in the way, so I set it on, put the lid on and traced around it. I then proceeded to shape the top of it. I didn't shape the other next ring down as I thought it would be best to work on that when it was all glued up like the directions. But it was much easier to shape the top of it!!



    I'm anxious for Carole to see this and get her opinion on it!!! Oh and as always I had my helper in the shop too!!!

    Looks good, Cathy, and definitely an improvement in sequence! I see that you also took the lid into consideration when you traced your outlines.

    Can't wait to see the finished project. Your sanding looks terrific, and with your little furry helper to cheer you on, you can't lose.

    Happy Easter!

      The Hegner like some other saws have a sweet spot or not so sweet spot where they may vibrate. I know they need to have a solid footing.
      When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

      I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

      Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
      I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
