  • Deal of a lifetime

    This past weekend I took a drive to look at a Hegner Multimax 18 inch scroll saw. The picture that I was given made the saw look rusty and pretty beat up. To my surprise, the saw was in near new condition,not a spot of rust on it. I cleaned it up and it is in perfect condition. Now for the best part, I paid $150 for it! That price included the stand.

    Now i just need to start practicing on it. I plan to start making some cutting boards into shapes. I subscribed to scroll saw magazine, but the next issue isn't for a few more months. Anybody have some past issue they need to get rid of? I would be more than happy to take them, i'll pay shipping costs. Thanks

          Sounds like a sweeeeet deal on your saw......good luck and have fun.
          Look on the left hand side of this page you will see Order Back Issues, click on that then click on Scroll Saw magazines. Lots of back magazine issues, also they now have 3 Cd's with 12 issues each on them going back to issue 1 if you are interested in those.

            Wow, you hit the jackpot, 20 years ago I paid over $1200.00 for the Hegner 18V with stand and Light. I never regretted it once. A great saw.

              Fantastic!!! Wish I'd have found that deal when I got into scrolling. Time to make lots of sawdust.

                  Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
