    I have very little vibration in that range. I'm good up until about 1300, then after that it get's progressively more. I don't run the saw at the high end as I don't like that much vibration, but the smooth zone is plenty wide for me, so it doesn't bother me.

    The question I have though, was the saw smoother than it is now, or do you think you are back to where you were before?

      Randy, I'd say I was back to where I was before. I may not have noticed that vibrating spot in the past because it is not a speed I scroll at. I would just be passing through and not looking for vibrations like I have been lately.

      I have to wonder why it decided it didn't like being on a board after 2 years. Women!! Unpredictable! I named her Rita after Rita Hayworth, being red and all... oh sorry you are too young to remember Rita...

        Maybe the board absorbed moisture from the concrete and warped? As for the tension bar in the back, I fixed mine by bending the bottom piece up with a pair of pliers to the triangle. I replaced the whole tension bar last year, after 16 years. As for vibrations, I run at warp speed a lot and I don’t find it a problem.

          When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

          Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

          Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

          I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

          Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

          I have two variable speed controllers one is on my Digital embroidery machine(inherited from my Mom) and I also have a Rampower carver with the electronic foot pedal. The variable speed on both of those gives much more control. especially on the power carver....
