  • G4 vibration test

    I read from time to time, about someone balancing a coin on the saw table, and it staying there while they saw. I just read on a web site, about a guy that had a middle priced saw and then upgraded to a high priced one, higher priced than my G4. And had a little video of sawing with a dime balanced on it. So with the stories by a couple of fellows saying the G4 vibrated a lot, I thought I would put it to the test. I had a hard time just balancing a dime on the table, maybe it was a round bottomed one, I don't know. But finally did and put the saw at highest speed. It only stayed about 15 seconds, but like I said it was a hard one to balance in the first place. So I got a nickel and tried it, and I guess I could saw all day with it there, if I didn't hit it moving the piece of wood. So I think I can say my saw doesn't vibrate very much. Just was wondering how it would do in the test, and I say it passed the test fine.

    YEs, it sounds like it passed fine. I have sawed like that for a long time before. I did use a nickle, I cant get a dime to stand on edge on our kitchen table even, and to get my saw table that precisely level to try the dime, would be pointless. congrats on a great saw! Dale

      I tried mine with a magnet, and it never fell at all.

      It is always fun to try these tests. I got a new car the other day and I like to think you can't tell the motor is running. I don't know if it makes my car any more practical than the next but it is nice to imagine that it is.

      I did once have a saw that would probably throw a ten pound bag of potatoes off the table if I turned it on and that was no fun at all to use.
      Somewhere in the middle is a saw I can afford.

        First, let me say those are beautiful! Second, I can tell you that on the Facebook laser forums those people have been hunting for sources on cutting and charcuterie boards to laser engrave various personalizations onto. Some are willing to pay for quality and the finished pieces show it. Others...

        A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

        If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
