  • show or direct

    Hi, I stumbled unto this site and boy I sure am glad I found it.
    I have a delta 40-640 20in, and am now looking to upgrade. I was wondering if it pays to buy an RBI at a wood show or should I just buy direct. I have no idea what show prices may be. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Lin,

    Welcome to a great scroll saw site. Question, why do you want to upgrade? You have a good saw. If you want the best saw, go for the Eclipse: http://eclipsesaw.com/

      GO TO A SHOW! I got my Hegner from a show and in addition to many many FREEBIES - magnifying light, foot pedal, extra blades, blade holders, stand, 20 year warranty - show special - on the motor, etc., I also got to try other saws and compare with the RBI, Delta, Execalibur, and whoever else was there. PLUS, Advanced Manhinery, who manufactures Hegner, is located in Delaware and there are NO SALES TAXES so I got to save that in addition to the freebies. PHEW! What could be more fun! who knows, you might decide you like what you have after and not get a new saw.

        Hi Lin,

        Will is talking about the show price for the Hegner saw. If you like to go with the Hegner, email me and I have information how to get the show price without going to a show.
        I love my Hegner.

          Hi,

          I love my Hegner.
          I love my Hegner too. It's hard to imagine how it can get any better. For those interested I have a review of the Hegner model I own in my web:

              I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

              John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

              Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

              I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
