  • Dremel Europe Scrollstation Recall

    Some of you will no doubt have seen this warning from Alan on the UKWorkshop forum, but for those who haven't I thought it worth repeating here:

    Just in case anyone has bought a Dremel Scroll Saw 1800 (Dremel Scrollstation), there has been a product recall notice issued. Details can be found at www.dremel.co.uk. Basically, they advise you not to switch it on as it is possible that the housing may become live, resulting in electrocution.

    Personally, I find this shocking.

        Good one Kevin,

        But have you considered the effect on the steroid wood worms?

        A jolt like that would incite anyone to go for many short cuts rather than long ones

        Hey! Maybe you could partner with them and have them include one of your patterns with each saw they sell?

        Just thoughts, LOL

        Regards,

          Hi Gill,

          This is only for the UK not for the US.

            Yes indeed, Mike, it applies to Britain and the rest of Europe. That's why I used the word "Europe" in the thread title.

              I understand Gill. Just wanted to make sure.
              Some might not have seen that.

                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
