  • G4 speeds

    Does anyone have any idea of the speeds of the G4? I emailed Hawk and they just gave me the same thing the manual says. From 30 to 1750. But it has marks on the speed control, like 10, 20, 30, etc, but what speeds are those. I found on the other saws they make that doesn't mean you can divide it by 10 and know the speeds that way, as it seems they give a much different speed than how that would work out. I would think a company as big as they are would have that kind of information. I have found that you find a certain speed works best for you with certain blades, on certain woods, so its nice to know. Thanks for any help you can give.

    G4 speed

    I have the G4 and never gave the actual speed a thought. I just adjust it until I am comfortable with my sawing and not buring the wood. I find that I don't change the speed very often.

      A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

      I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

      Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

      This is only my opinion.

      Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

      It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

      [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

      I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
