  • Should I Wax My Dewalt?

    The old scroll saw that I used to use got a rusty surface in my garage. I read about people waxing cast iron scroll saws. Should I do this on my new used DeWalt?

    Yes, use Johnson paste wax with no silicone...silicone will stain your wood.

        I used wax paper for a long time. Then I decided to try the Johnson's paste wax. It really works well, lasts a long time and makes the table slicker than slick. (tried to be good and not say anything bad LOL) I'm a believer.

                I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
