    I just realized that my saw table is not square front to back. Left to right seems to be fine but is there anyway to make an adjustment going the other direction? When I attempt to score between letters for a name key chain, it cuts into the top sooner than the bottom.

    That might not be a problem with the table Mike. Most scroll saws don't provide a true straight up and down cut. It's just more noticable on some saws more than others. The thicker the wood the more noticable it becomes.
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

      I was reading just the other day about levaling a table. front to back, NO. but this is what they did. they , took a piece of plexie glass. cut it to the tabale size. put some sticky tabs or what ever. built up doubale sided tape, or what ever you could find, to do the job. and put them between the plexie and the main table. to do the leveling. I believe it was in my Diana Thompsons wooden Chess Sets book. this made a smooth and flat serfus. then always use your squer to line up the blade. hope this helps. Evie

      edit, also forgot to mention. the tabale might be level to the blade. but not to the floor. just a small levale or straight piece of barr. will tell you if the table is flat. you can see the spaces easy that way. thats what you would wont to fill with something.

        My Delta SS350 has about a 1/8 " movement front to back as the blade goes up and down. That motion results in faster cutting but, it becomes a problem when cutting delicate stacked items or 3d stuff. That is why I bought the RBI G4 I can adjust that motion to almost nothing. The Eclipse is probably the only modern saw that is truly vertical.

          This market is run a little different than most. All monies collected go back into the market. Each month they put on a different event to draw in people. The budget is usually $600 in the busy months. The pavilion is well maintained with sides that pull down in the colder months. The only time Sunday...

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          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...

          The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
