  • Fretwork and Intricate Scrolling

    Everytime I try to cut intricate patterns with the scroll saw I get breakage of the wood that is not suppose to come out! What am I doing wrong??? I have a Hegner Multimax 18.

    Don't know but could be -
    * Using too aggressive a blade for the thickness & type of wood. You should have 3 to 4 teeth in the wood at all times.
    * Putting sideways pressure on the wood instead of straight into the blade
    * Trying to cut faster than the blade is capable of
    * The wrong kind of wood ... A soft grainy wood won't hold the detail that a hard tightly grained wood will.

    hope that helps

      Not positioning the grain in the right direction could be the problem also.

        Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
        That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

        If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

        The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

        You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
