    Thanks for all of the above comments. I gave up on the Dewalt and finally bought a Hegner from Australia. Just love it!!

    I hope I'm not too late with this info, but I've been told that the power system in New Zealand is the same as that in the UK. All you would need to do would be to change the plug, because New Zealand electrical outlets use plugs that are a different shape to the flat pins used in the UK.

    It means that if you buy a power tool from the UK, it'll work in NZ. Unfortunately, I don't believe the DeWalt 788 is available in the UK.

    I believe Neil Schultz is the president of that club.

    There is not much difference in the emal. It might be father and son.
    Can you use any other motor?

    Looking at the SAW website, I saw that there is a scrollsaw club listed in Australia. The contact name is Nick Schulz [email protected]

    Try giving him a shout via email, perhaps he knows about resources in the region.

    Thanks Mike but I have tried all of the Dewalt websites in New Zealand, Australia, Britain, and other continental countries that use 220 volt power and had no luck at all. They apparantly have a minimum order thus cannot order one only. I may just have to go to a Delta which is a shame.

    Contact DeWalt. They might have help for you.
    I don't think you will find one in the US,

    Does anyone know where to obtain a Dewalt 788 scroll saw with a 240 volt 50Hz motor for use in New Zealand?

    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...
