    First of many answers

    I started with a Delta, it is a good beginners saw.
    I used one for many years with few problems.
    There are some great books out there.
    The Scroll Saw Workbook is available right here from Fox Chapel
    Scroll Saw Basics by Patrick Spielman is also a good book and also available here.

          you are all so helpful are there free patterns?


          • #6
            The best "free" patterns I've gotten are from the magazines - Scroll Saw Workshop and Creative Woodworking and Crafts. SSW is the better of the 2 if you can only afford 1, but CWC comes out a few more times a year, and there is always a nice variety of patterns in both of them.
            There is also a "free Scrollsaw Patterns" group on MSN, I think. Type in free scrollsaw patterns in your search gizmo, and see where it takes you. I found that most of their free patterns were of the portrait or fretwork variety - and I like other sorts, so personally that was not too helpful -yet. As skill grows, so do interests.
            I hope you get your saw soon, so that you can join in the fun.

              Check the links to various companies on the magazine websites and you will find several free patterns there. Try to get their free pattern of the month, as well as some pretty good patterns for purchase. Try this link: This should get you started.

                I had to replace the motor on my Hawk that we purchased new in 2002. I just called up Hawk & they had me send them my motor the power switch. He needed to collaborate the new motor and to my power switch. The new motor was sent back with in the week. I did this back in 2018 and it was a little...

                I've tried label paper as well. It peels off reasonably well, although different brands will probably perform differently. When it doesn't come off easily, I have a little heat gun that makes release quickly. When I have used 3M spray adhesive and left it on for too long, a hair dryer or heat gun...
