  • excalibur scroll saw

    A warning to Australians.
    These models are made by a different manufacturer to the American models.
    There is a problem with the variable speed card. Carbatec knows about the problemand have asked the manufacturer to fix the problem but they have refused.
    I bought one in october, now I have to ship it back to carbatec to have the variable speed fixed. They will pay for the repairs but not the shipping.
    It seems a bit insane to me that they know about the problem but still sell them asis.
    It would have been a lot simpler to repair the problem before selling them.

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your post.

    Hmm, I just bought a 2nd hand carbatec saw with a non-functioning variable speed control, maybe this is why? (was the only one I could get, not enough moolah for a new one) Not sure what model this is but it's a 16" pinned blade model

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
