  • Scrollsaws from Heaven

    Seems I have been wrangled into buying a Hegner 14e (I think it is fixed speed) for $250. Seems I also have a father-in-law that has a Delta C-arm (not sure of model) I can get FOC (Free Of Charge).

    Now to find the space in the garage for it. Or see if Marcel can share his 'shop' plans. I'd love to put a 2story 16x24 shed out by the pool.

    If there is one thing I can make perfect every time it is sawdust.

      How sad . Couldn't he get a proper prosthetic arm?

      Seriously, congratulations on your good fortune .

        Yes the 14E is a single speed saw, I bought one a few years ago, and have made a lot of sawdust with it. I have this year updated to a G4 Hawk. Only because of the, being able to run the blade from top to bottom. But on the Hegner, I did what they tell you that you can't do. They say it can hurt the motor, but it never did mine. And that is I hooked up a fan speed control to it, and slowed it down to where I wanted it to run. I ran it for years that way, with no problems. Now maybe I was just lucky I don't know, but it worked for me, for a number of years. But the little Hegner is a sweet running saw.

          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...
