  1. Ron has a good idea about the lathe and the person using it.. Comfortable to use so a person don't get wore out before he gets started using it. When I bought the new 788 in 99 I decided who ever built the stand that came with the scroll saw was about half off his rocker....So I went to thinking ....and here is what I use to keep me in the shop, longer, and with not as much aches and pains. I built a table to sit the saw on that is 19 1/2" tall. The saw is not bolted to the table, it will slide around as it sits on pieces of a truck tire inter tube... making it quieter, not a clue!! Sometimes I am sawing long pieces of wood and the saw needs to be turned one way or the other to accept the area where the sawing is fixin to take place.. I sit on an office chair with good swivel casters so I can go back and forth to the work top area a few feet away from the saw....Another good thing, which makes me follow the saw line better, I am mostly looking down on the piece to be sawn. Better results on saw-man-ship, not a clue again, but after building this set up , I got better at scroll sawing?? Most of the time these 788's don't bounce around much so maybe the inter tube is helping there?? This scroll sawing turned out to be the most comfortable tool useage of anything I do in my shop.. After I get a pattern attached to the wood then head toward to scroll saw, I let out a loud hurray or is it hurraw for the next few hours will be sitting down to where I can relax and make saw dust! And don't forget to turn on that box fan with the filter attached over there to the left of the operator! It took years to get my shop set up so tripping over objects in the floor would be a priority. I did leave room so I could get to the commode and the sink after I finally locate where they are! Does anyone have any good ideas to keep lumber stored thats not being used from day to day? The 12" Powermatic # 72 table saw catches all the overflow for all it is used for is cross cutting so it gets all the extra crap.... The sled on it is a permanent fixture for it measures 34x48" and is too important to stand up somewhere and get knocked out of whack. Yes I do take care of some of the small long pieces but sometimes I forget they are up there out of the way. And this fixture keeps some clamps close to the work table which is over the end of the table saw I call my work table. Its on a swivel so the clamps are easy to get to. I didn't say easy to squeeze, which they ain't!! A small metal strap bending tool is a good tool for making brackets for storing wood on the ceiling.. Oh, the drill press has a magnet to hold the chuck key but it serves another very important service for the light next to the magnet is too heavy with the extra large bulb making it too heavy to stay up in the air so the magnet holds the light over the work area also to even for. Its on a swivel so the clamps are easy to get to. And did I say not easy to squeeze? I decided getting up in age I need everything out in plain sight so I won't have all those drawers to look through. So I have lots of turn tables with lots of holes to display lots of small items. And I do think it has helped save wasted time..... Lots of experimenting went in to the 60 and 100 watt led bulbs in my shop and my house. I even had my wife take pictures of the receipts and the expected years these bulbs are supposed to last!!!!! I can just see the clerks asking are you sure those led bulbs were the 9 year, or the 18 year or the 22 year warrenty models or what???? We had just now finished installing all those curly cue light bulbs in all the shops and garages and houses receptacles and are now returned to the boxes the led's came in, with no where to go with them!! HO HO.
  2. Scroll Saw Table Refinishing

    I have had my Excaliber 21 for some time now and LOVE it. I love it so much that I have worn the "paint" right off the top near the blade opening. Now, the color of the bale matches the color of the blades. Makes it really tough to see the blade entry. I have tried paper, zero-clearance 1/4" plywood, coloring the blade with no results. OH, most learned members, how can I fix this problem. Short of taking it somewhere to have it ground down, polished and poder coated, does anyone have a real solution? Will be most anxiously awaiting your responses. fred

  4. Coloring Scroll Sawn Designs

    Tried something different a couple of weeks ago and am wondering if anyone else is doing it. First a picture of the project. An easy eagle (Pattern by Gayle Mortison). Cut the project in Poplar and made the uneven corners. Before applying a finish, I go out some trusty water based paint and tinned the fool out of it to make a wash. Did the white and after that dried put some yellow on the beak. Jut to make the eye blacker, put a touch of black inside (from the back side). Waited for the whole thing to dry and then finished with two coats of satin lacquer. Have any of you guys tried this technique? Show us some pictures. If you haven't, would you be willing to try?
  5. Trouble seeing the cut line

    I'm having trouble with my tired, old eyes seeing some cut lines on patterns. I use a light-magnifier but when I'm cutting patterns like these from Steve Good, I have a lot of problems. The black line patterns with the magnifier pop right out at me but these filled area patterns drive me nuts. I loose sight of the blade in the black. Any suggestions on what I could try?
  6. Today I was cutting a bunch of the military stars and it occurred to me that we have never discussed how we try to cut straight lines on our scroll saws ! ! ! ! I guess we just assume that: Everyone knows how Can't be done on a scroll saw After discovering that I usually don't pay much attention to it, I started figuring out how I managed to, basically, cut most of my lines fairly straight. AND....... I came to the following conclusions: When cutting a bunch of straight line stuff, I generally change to a larger blade - gives a little more length to the blade and a little harder to make a sharp corner; During the cut, I never seem to change the position of my hands (for kicks, I DID change positions and, behold, it went crooked); I also sit directly in line with the cut - just about all blades will pull a little to either the left or right and I just move my position to line the cut up - the blade is lined up with the kerf (if you one-eye it). What say you all - agree, disagree, more suggestions are always welcome....... What do you do if and when your line DOES go crooked?????????????
  7. Celtic knots

    Now I am sure I haven't made anything like this. When I first cut it out with the scrollsaw I didn't think it would look anything like the picture. A while more with the machinery, who knows?
  8. This is not really a tool I want to buy (would rather be getting a drill press or 2nd router) but my wife has a particular project for me that will require a scroll saw. I would like to stay under $150. Any hands on experience from any of you with one that would fit the bill? This would probably only be used occasionally.
