  • $75 Hegner

    Sometimes Craigslist rocks. Looking for a scrollsaw bargain in like fishing, if you patient, eventually, something cool turns up. I let a G4 for $300 get away from me a year or so ago and have kicked myself every since.

    So . . . I just found and picked up a Multi-cut 2 (Multimax 14) for $75. I couldn't resist. It is 30+ some years old and you can still get all the parts. It needs bellows and a little love, although, I will probably buy a quickclamp and a few other things to spruce it up a bit. The belows and any other part will cost more than the saw. Don't know how long a saw that old will last, but, it runs smooth for now.

    It is super compact compared to my Mutimax 22. I'm calling it my baby Hegner.

      I have owned a Hegner 18v for over 25 years and have never regretted it. You got quite a buy for $75 if I were you I would purchase all of the parts needed to restore it to it's original condition. When I purchased my saw it cost me $1200.

            Great buy... I paid $600 for a 25 year old Hegner last year and felt I got a deal. Bellows worn out but I have a small fan blowing across the table to remove sawdust and keep me cool.

              Jim, If I remember, your multimax was a single speed also. I've never used a single speed before, so that will be interesting. I noticed there is a replacement variable speed motor/control available, but I'll not go that route unless the current motor gives up the ghost.

              (Single speed motor/switch > $400, I think VS > $700, wow)

                Yes my multimax is single speed but I can change the stroke length on it. (Also on the Polymax) The polymax has many speeds but to change speeds you move the belt. I leave it on one speed all the time. I had a variable speed saw years ago and the variable speed control failed a few times. I then had a DeWalt but ran it at top speed all the time anyway. I am now used to just varying my feed rate to control the cut. I have my multimax setup with a 3/8" stroke and tilted at 2.5 degrees to do inlay with and the polymax stroke is set at 3/4" for cutting thicker material.

                  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...
