  • Where is everyone??

    Did everyone go into hibernation??? I guess I'm the first to use our new site. Since Christmas is over and projects finished, I feel a let down. Like I should be planning for a new year project. Do any of you feel the need to be doing something new for the New Year?

    Happy New Year

    Yes, Dena -- First thing tomorrow morning I'm cleaning my shop. I'm going to start '05 CLEAN. And, for me, a clean shop is new.

      Got to finish daughter B'day gift (10 Jan) then start on next years. got a bunch of nice cedar fence boards from a discarded fence that I have rescued by planing them down so should be able to do some nice somethings out of them. Probably ornament as the cedar is nice and light.

          I'm sawing!!

          I got a new RBI Hawk for Christmas (I guess all that bellyaching did some good after all), but FedX temporarily lost it, so I just got it yesterday. Wow!! Whatta machine. Now I can change a blade anytime I wanna. Used to be such a hassle to change 'em, I'd just keep sawing 'til the blade broke. Happy New Year to everyone!!

            OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...........Sheltie, you didn't say a HAWK (or I missed it). A Hawk ~sigh~. I had a little Hawk I adored. When I started having problems with it I decided to get a new saw and wanted a longer "throat". I bought a 30" Excalibur and I'm bitterly disappointed. The 30" are great but everything else is ......well, I just don't like it. Even with the speed control set as high as it will go, it's too slow, adjusting the tension is difficult, the manual says it should be oiled EVERY DAY. It's probably me, but I have trouble changing the blades. I WANT MY HAWK BACK.

                Here I am!! I'm at work looking for something to do while I could be at home cleaning my shop. I just found out that I need pics of my shop to send in an application for a juried show. Anxiously awaiting next week-end when we go to the woodworkers show at the fairgrounds. I have my coupons, list and money and am ready to spend, spend, spend!! Accountant says I can still show a loss next year so I am only too happy to oblige!! EVERYONE HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR!!!

                  Well, I see that not everyone is hibernatiing. Nancy, I hope your shop space is larger than mine. I have a 10 x 10 bedroom workshop. I use to teach 6-12 yr olds to sew for 10 yrs, then I wanted to do some airbrushing and now I have big and little scroll saws. All equipment in the same room. I have to keep it clean or I wouldn't know which machine I was using. LOL
                  Thanks everybody now I don't feel so lost and will start working on my miniature rocking chair with fretwork 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".

                    by handibunny
                    It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                    I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                    This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

                    If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                    I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
