  • Gold Leaf To Carvings

    Hi everyone,
    I have never done this so I need some direction. I would like to apply gold leaf to some carvings. The application is carving to be placed onto the sides of miniature circus wagons. These were the very ornate
    parade wagons from years past. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Gold Leaf To Carvings

    Gold leafing is easy, Most important part, make sure base area is smooth. I use a under coating of sign paint because it is glossy. Than put the sizing on allow it to dry, Use a very soft brush to lift the gold leaf up, place it gently on the surface. When finished, rub with a cotton ball to polish it. I get my supplies from D.i.c.k Blick online. If you search the web you should find some info on gold leafing. Have Fun!

      When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

      I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

      Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
      I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
