  • Love my new DeWalt

    I got my new DeWalt the other day and I truly to love it. I practiced with it for one whole day. It cuts more agressave than my old (now back-up saw) Delta SS250. I like the top feeding and the tooless blade change. Also the tension, I think, is better. I know I can cut more accurately without the vibretion of the other saw.

    Somebody mentioned in a thread that you could buy a counter balnce for this saw. Something like Jim Dandy or whatever. Does anyone remember?

    Yeah I know what you're talking about. I got mine from Wildwood Designs. It's labeled as the Easy Lift System in their catalog. $20.95 Don't know if it's cheaper anywhere else or not.

          Bill,
          I recently upgraded my scroll saw and it was like moving from a biplane to a 747. The difference in smoothness and accuracy was really marked.

          Enjoy!!

            How did you attach the aluminum flat bar to your saw? Change out the screws on the saw? Bungie cord,Hum. Interesting.

                Thanks for the suggestion on the homemade counter balance. I'll have to try that.

                  Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                  That is...

                  The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                  Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                  Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                  Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                  Now,...
