  • Purchase Too Good to be True


    Went to an auction of a woodworking shop last weekend. Professional woodworker had died and wife was auctioning all the equipment. Set around for four hours waiting for my main interest, a Hegner Multimax 22V saw. Made in 1995 but looks like new.
    Auctioneer started at $200 and had no takers. None at $100. When he dropped to $50 I figured I had better start the ball rolling. When he asked for more bids there were none and hammered it down at $50. On top of this there were blades along with it. Got home and counted almost 40 dozen blades.

    Have set everything up and it is running just fine in my shop. I guess clean living pays off some times. Not buying lotto tickets this month because I assume my good luck for the near future has probably been used up. Can't wait to get some projects started!

                  I would call that a Fantastic buy . That is a $1600+ scroll saw new. You are probably right about using your good luck for awhile.

                    OMG! that was almost a steal! And all those blades to boot. You won't have to buy any for a long time. Best wishes on the new to you saw.. Fay
                    Have a great day, Fay.

                        Fay seem to be reading my mind again, the blades cost more than a fifty , the saw cost nothing

                          What a deal

                          You are one lucky man. The good Lord was watching over you that day. Sounds like something I did recently. Went to a church garage sale and got a professional kitchen aid mixer for twenty dollars.

                              Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. 🤪 We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is “temporarily...

                              My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                              Hello all, new here.
                              by Redlee
                              New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                              I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                              Thanks

                              Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                              Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
