    Hoping that someone can help. My scroll saw needs oiling and reading the manual it says use SAE20 oil, is this just motor oil?

          Hello Dave
          Oil your saw after use the while bearings are warm. The oil soaks in better over idle time with less chance oil will dripping on your workpiece. SAE#20 oil is slight bit thicker. Most oils catch dirt so when starting up after serviceing run the saw ror few seconds then clean drips if any. Good Quality sewing machine or clock oil will not leave residues but are thin like 3 in 1 oil.

            G'day Dave,
            Every couple of months I give my saw a good blow out, and put few drops of oil on any and every moving part. I then run it for a few minutes and wipe any excess oil of, especially on the parts that may throw oil onto stuff I'm working on.
            Regards

              Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

              Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
