  • Need info on Pro-Tech 3303

    A friend of mine who I've been trying to get into scrolling was given a Pro-Teck 3303 that had never been used. It's a 16" throat, controls on the front, variable speed, uses pins or pin-less blades and vibration is not too bad. The blade change is by using a "T" handled hex wrench but I think he could easily jury rig(sp) something changing it to a thumb screw like the Dewalt. To get him interested, it's not to bad. The company is still in business but they have almost no info on their site except about a 2 year warranty and a customer service #.

    Does anyone know anything about this scroll saw.

    I have a T-Handle saw and I have looked into the adapters. It's about $35 with shipping. I haven't done it. After you use it a few times, it becomes second nature. I will get tool less blade changing on my next saw, but lack of it is not a reason to dump the saw. Despite being unused, your friend could not get full price for it so I think getting started with it is a fine idea.

        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...

        I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
