    I have a very beautiful bowl made from hackberry that Rick Hutcheson sent to me. I sure wouldn't throw that stuff away if you can find any use for it at all.

        Check out Rick Hutcheson's website. I'm sure you'll see pictures of the hackberry bowls. They're light tan with dark streaks. Just Google Rick and you'll find him.

          I LOVE Hackberry! ...especially if it has gray streaks going through it. Hard wood, but cuts really nice on the scroll saw, and sands up well too.

                Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

                by handibunny
                It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

                If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...
