    I did several pieces 40+ years ago. I gave them as presents to my family members. They were kits from Constantines when they were still located in the Bronx, NY. We also have a club member that is very good at it.
    I look forward to seeing your first piece.

    New work surface.

    I have a small basement shop and bad habits, like cluttering all of my horizontal surfaces. So when I need to work on a larger project or hold something for sanding it is always a pain.
    I decided to buy this Kreg work surface that I put away when I am done. I am truly impressed with it. It is...

    I truly hope no one thinks this site is clique in any way, those of us that have been here for a long time have become friends an some of us have even met in person. This forum has always been very welcoming to new scrollers of all levels.

    This forum was a s big as SSV is now until they went through the forum upgrade process that effectively killed the site for quite a while.
    That down time pushed folks to join and create other sites. As for why it has grown as it has, you make some good points. I think the one big difference is...

    Hotshot, well said!
    We tend to get caught up in saw and blade wars The best saw for any of us is the one that does what we need it to do with a minimum of frustration and good reliability. good maintenance will keep most of our saws running reliably.

    It is a good thing...

    That is a tough question. The only time that I have seen a multitude of saw manufacturers represented was at the Fox Chapel open houses.
    At the last one (2016) Hegner, Hawk, Excalibur, PSwood, and the local club had Dewalts and a couple of others available to try.
    This is rare event. It...

    From what I understand it typically takes one year per inch of thickness. This is an interesting article.

    For my turning wood I seal the ends and weigh them. I mark the date and weight and every...

    Wow what a project! Amazing details. From a ship design project they didn't have much of a rudder for a ship this size.

    replied to Clock parts longevity?
    Not hard but I do have to invest in materials. The rest is time on my metal lathe which is always fun. And a bit of soldering.

    replied to Lathe question
    You will need a bench grinder sooner than later. Many woods have a lot of silica that dulls the tools , and it is very difficult and frustrating to try turning with dull tools.

    replied to Hegner blade clamps
    Harry, even though I prefer my Hawk over the Hegner, I am not sure that you will find a more robust solid saw than the Hegner that you have.
    They are mechanically simple and easy to maintain. We have club members that have been scrolling on them for over 60 years. Although I do tell them that...

    Clock parts longevity?

    As some of you may know I agreed to provide the brass hardware parts kits (for a fee) for a a clock that was in the magazine and now published in a couple of clock books.
    I am looking for opinions on how long one would expect those parts to be available. The books and magazines will be around...

    replied to Hegner blade clamps
    It is my understanding that they have two clamps for different blade thickness ranges. If that is the case you may be using one for too small of a blade. Just a thought.
