    WOWOWOWOW what a project - looks GRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT
  2. Multi-Mode 'Fairy' Lights Deal

    This post is referencing the lights I used in the project pictured below Lights ON - surprise - the light kit has several different modes, battery operated and remote controlled (would be difficult to turn lights on and off with this hanging on a wall.) I paid $14.95 for the light kit (source will not be mentioned in this post). Thinking this price was a little steep, I researched the manufacturer of the lights and stumbled upon them at Amazon. I have since changed supplier of this light kit. In fact, I ordered more from Amazon. The same light kit that I paid $14.95 at ________, is 2 for $10.99 ! ! ! ! ! I have included the url for these lights below. Did I do good or what ? ? ? ? ? Light Kit Deal Here

    Unfortunately, no. That being said, the light kit has 8 different modes to it and several of the modes have a dimming effect.

  8. Status of Excalibur Scroll Saw

    I have heard rumors of Exclibur being discontinued. Seyco is no longer selling them ! (The #1 guy for Excalibur). Sent emails to the manufacturer in Canada (General International) but received no answer from them. Soooooo, I reached out to Steve Good to see if he has heard anything. Below is his answer to me (reprinted with permission). "General International and the Taiwanese manufacturer of the Excalibur had a disagreement. I hear that it was not very friendly but I don't know all the gory details. Just the rumors.(not worth repeating) There was also a rumor going around that they had made up and General was considering starting shipping the saw again. I cannot verify that and I tried. The loss of the Excalibur was bad for the community but the gap has been somewhat filled by the Seyco ST-21 which is made by the same Taiwanese manufacturer and is very similar to the old Excalibur with improvements. It also open the door for King Canada to market their King Scroll Saws in the US. They are basically identical to the Excalibur with different branding. Unfortunately King can only sell the 16" and 30" machine in the US at this time. I spoke with their marketing guy and he tells me that is because of a contractual agreement and they hope to start selling the 21" King saw in the US soon. No word on what soon means. They currently sell the machines in Woodcraft stores nation wide." So, my friends, what are we going to replace our Excalibur when the time comes? Where are we going to get replacement parts? With the St-21 and KingSaw selling for $899, and being new to the scroll saw world, any decision is to be made. Any thoughts guys??????

  10. Reported earlier that we were vending at a show in Perry, GA. Saturday great weather, great people (buying) and then the fire depoartment, with help from the weather prognosticators) said that the promoters should cancel the show for Sunday because of all the nasty weather headed our way. At the time of this writing (Sunday about 9:30am, it is storming with some pretty good winds and lightening. Glad I'm sitting in our dry trailer and not trying to get things ready for a "no customer" day. Nuff sed

  14. Woodworker Journal Weekly Update Tip

    I have also used different colors and red seems to work out the best for me. Medium grey also works good. Another thing I found (accidentally) is to ) print in "ink saver" mode - gets rid of all the background grey from the pattern. (ok, that's my 2 cents worth)
