  • New Member - Intro and a Question

    This is my first post here, so let me introduce myself. I'm a retired electrical engineer who got into woodworking when I retired.

    Right now, I'm learning marquetry and use a scroll saw to cut out the pieces of veneer to make pictures. You can see some of my work at Mike's Woodworking Projects

    I Just bought a used Hawk 226VS scroll saw. The guy I bought it from didn't have the operator's manual. I know Hawk used to put their manuals on the web but since they're were sold the manuals didn't make it to the new web site. Does anyone have a PDF of the 226VS manual that they downloaded from the old site that you'd be willing to send me?

    I also contacted RBI but haven't heard back yet.

    Mike

    [And in the spirit of "No pix, didn't happen", I'm including a pix of the saw in my (messy) shop.]

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

      Thanks. When I try to download the manual from that site I get an error message. Does it work for you?

                  Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
