  • Scrollsaw Videos

    Been playing with a new idea and have put a page on my web site of videos about scrollsawing. These are short clips about different tips on scrolling.
    With so many people not being able to see some of the saws and methods of doing things, I think the video is an easier way than trying to write a tip.
    Please go over and take a look ans see if you think this may be a help to scrollers. And I am looking for ideas on what to show next. http://www.scrollsaws.com

      Wonderful resource.

      I can't see them at work since I don't have real palyer

      I think it would be good to show bevel cutting, 2 layer bevel inlays, maybe one on the selection of blades.....like the reduction of tearout with reverse blades.
      The difference of cutting with a regular blade and a spiral.

      You do a great job on your videos Rick I have sent many people to your site for the Corel tutorials.

      Keep up the great work

        Hey Carl,

        I don't know if you were the inspiration, but Rick covered all of those subjects... and more.

        Nice work Rick, very instructive.

        I learned to love the blade holder on my DW788, and the one on the P20.
        I can't figure how a saw as well praised as the Eclipse requires a tool to detach the bottom blade, or any of the other "High End" saws for that matter.

        Respectfully,

            Hi, Marcel

            I hope you won't take this as disrespectful but I disagree with you about the blade holders on the DW788 and the Eclipse. I own both of these saws and I much prefer the Eclipse. I will be selling my 788 very soon. I know that I am in the minority with this opinion but it takes all kinds of opinions to make a discussion, doesn't it?

            Regards, Don

              At the risk of starting a saw debate. I feel that in this day and age there is no excuse for a higher end saw to require tools for blade changes. Even the low end saws like my SS350 don't need tools.

              My opinion.

                Hi Don,

                No offense taken, you are entitled to your oppinion as I am, and your delivery is respectfull.

                I have read about the Eclipse, and find it perfect in all other manners except for that one.
                It is better engineered than the DW788, and mine would never pass the vibration test with a piece of 1/4" BB standing on end, much less a dime. (Well... Ok, I'm exagerating a little bit, but you get the point )

                I still think there is no excuse for it to need a tool to change the blade

                And from Rick's video, I'm even tempted to say that the Delta P- 20 clamp system looks better than the DW's screw system. Although I'd have to try it firsthand to make up my mind.

                And that's my story and I'm sticking to it

                Respectfully,

                  I have been trying to tell some people that for years. It not only looks better but it is better in many ways. I am talking from experience after owning both of those saws.
                  Most of the responses I got (and some were very rude) were from Dewalt owners that had never even seen a P-20 up close and didn't know what they were talking about..
                  And yet others were from P-20 owners that were going about using their blade holders in the wrong way and some even damaged their holders simply by operator error before learning how to properly use them.
                  All it takes is a little practice and understanding of how to use them.

                  Rick's video on the P-20 blade holders will settle that once for all because he is one of the many P-20 owners (including myself) that knows how to properly use them .
                  I was able to download the P-20 video only so I saw that one but I am unable to download any more due to a computer problem with the format that they are in not agreeing with my computer on my dial up service..
                  I would love to see the rest. I noticed the one on the Hegner is a very big file compared to the rest. I would love to see why that saw requires such a large file to show how to use thier blade holders. I know tools have to be used on the Hegner but can't imagine why that would slow down the process all that much.

                      Good News;
                      There was a glitch in my first download of Real Player so I uninstalled it and re-installed it and was able to eliminate the glitch and now in a round about sort of way I am able to download and save every one of the videos. I must admit that the picture quality is very good on the Real Player and better than if they had been on Windows Media player. Once saved I can click on any one and it comes up and starts playing instantly. It is the initial download that takes so much time on dial up service.
                      I spent from 7.00 PM last night until 1.30 AM to download 24 of them starting from the top of the list . I now only have about 16 more to go , unless of course Rick adds more and I will continue to save them all.
                      This is a wonderfull thing that Rick is doing for the scrollsawing community.
                      Like the old saying goes . . . a picture is worth a thousand words and anyone that needs to know the right way to go about different phases of scrolling needs only to go to those videos to get a world of knowledge from one of the worlds most expert scrollsawyers. .
                      The nicest part about it is that he spends the time and effort to provide all the information on his site from his generosity in trying to help people and it is all free information for anyone to go into and check out at any time.
                      My hat is off to Rick Hutcheson for his continuous efforts in helping out the scrollsawing community so much.

                        People who don't like Real Player might be happier using the free Real Alternative.

                          Thanks Gill I will post that site also, never knew it existed.

                          Today I am working on getting a quick review up of all of the saws, a way for people to get a better understanding of the features of each saw I have.

                            Changing a Hegner blade is time consumming and requires a tool. But I never have blades slip out of the clamps once they are in there and that includes sprial blades. Can't say the same about my P-20. The videa that Ric shows is really a old Hegner. But like anyother tool, after you have done it a few (hundred) times it don't seem like long.

                              I've got to say that Rick's website has always been one of the finest resources available for scrollers and the latest video developments are superb enhancements.

                              Chuck's comments on Hegner blade changing are interesting. Rick's video certainly describes the procedure accurately insofar as the earlier Hegners are concerned, and I believe it's the method recommended by Hegner in the instruction manual. However, it took me ages to get my Hegner 1 to cut without breaking blades in the upper clamp. In the end, I achieved this by securing the upper blade clamp in the top arm as described in the video, but now I don't release the screw that holds the clamp in the arm. I find the blades seem to suffer less strain this way. Actually, I was told to do this by the Hegner UK rep at a woodworking show about 5 years ago - it doesn't seem to have adversely affected the saw at all and my blades last much longer.

                              Hegner now produces a "Quick Release Clamp" which speeds blade changes and piercing work dramatically. This, when used in conjunction with the quick tension release lever on the upper arm of some Hegner models, makes the saw much more user friendly.
