    replied to New work surface.
    I like the idea that I could buy two, but only use one on the large stuff, or get a seamless larger table by tying them together. It looks pretty neat.

    I can see junking the 14", but if the Polymax is in good condition otherwise, there probably isn't a part on there that would "total" the saw. The motor is unique among the Hegners, so that particular item would be very expensive. The rest of the parts that are "wear" parts...

  • The USB stick isn't really a big thing for me. It would have taken less space, but I copied all the files to the computer, then stashed the CDs.

    It is very very interesting looking through the early issues. The landscape has changed dramatically since those early days. I didn't recognize...

    Don't think you are using a second rate saw because you are using an EX/Seyco. It simply isn't true.

    I think to fully understand what the Hegner (or Hawk for that matter) is about, you need to try it yourself. I respect the Hegner for what is it, but I wouldn't say that the Hegner usability...

    Ah yes, my 14" has dry rotted bellows. But, I don't use the saw, so I've been hesitant to fix it. I need to get rid of that one. Hegner should be ashamed to make that model, and I would almost feel bad for the sucker that bought it. Actually, it's better than any new less than $200 saw for blade...

    Woodterry, early on, I had a time when I had some knocking, but that went away when I adjusted my saw to minimize blade travel.

    First thing, make sure the arm is perfectly level with the table, once it is level, do not use that back knob. Only time you use it, is to get that table back...

    The weak spot in the Multimax 22vs is the plastic connector rod. At about 20 years, dry rot gets the best of them. I'm sure there are exceptions, but I've talked to several people that have had this issue. Just talked to someone last week, same thing. I was told when shopping for an old Hegner, always...

    replied to Clock parts longevity?
    I wouldn't feel any pressure/obligation to do one day beyond what you want to. For the magazine, I would thing the bulk of those that are going to try it would have tried it within the first year, and much less the year after. There will be some that want to build the project, and are trying to build...

  • Pulling the Trigger on the SSWC Archive CDs

    Been looking at the Archive CDs for a long time, thinking that would be the best way to get all the back issues to the very beginning. I saw a coupon code from FoxChapel for 20% total order, so I decided to go ahead and do it.

    It wasn't cheap, but the discount made it a little better. Anyway,...

    The pleasure was all mine. I wish I was a little closer so I could drop by more often and see your various projects as well as the work of the other incredible artists you showcase there. Pictures on the forum are good, but they don't really do your projects justice.

    I think I'm going to...

    Fibber, it was wonderful to meet you and your wife. It if very rare for me to meet another scroller, especially one from our community. Today was a very good day as I met two. I'm looking forward to seeing some of that newly acquired skill from your classes. One day, I'll muster up enough courage to...

    I and the wife plan to take a trip to Chattanooga soon, and drop by to see the store.
