Just wondering if it might be better to have it shipped to a store in NH Artie. You'll save the Maine sales tax. Seabrook is not far off the beaten path when traveling to Maine

Al, If I decide to move up, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna buy from Seyco. I’m just posting this for any one interested.

Artie - we value your opinion on dealing with Seyco, ease of ordering, shipping speed, and overall opinion (as a relatively newbe to scrolling) of this new machine.  Please keep us informed of your journey.

 

Thanks again

Hi Fred, I am just looking into what I might move up to. I am really liking the Shopsmith one. I think the issues I have with it are all solvable. I will find out about the biggest one when I rig up an aquarium pump as a saw dust blower. If that works well the rest is easy to do. I look at oceanfront real estate all the time, my Wife laughs at me. I tell her I just want to be prepared, if I win the lottery LOL. Kinda the same thing with the woodworking tools. I have the next shop all planned in my head :) . While doing all my online research I just found a huge number of compliments for Ray of Seyco. I feel if we don’t support the people/companies that go above and beyond what’s expected for customer service, then we have no right to complain when we are left with just the BORG’s. From a strictly $$ point of view, the Excalibur EX-21 at $799 with stand and foot switch, delivered, seems to be a great deal. While I think a scroll saw that tilts instead of the table, and also lifts up, and stays there, it’s a better design, my last two sessions on the Shopsmith went really well, and I’m very happy with it. There’s a thought floating around the little thing I call a brain, that maybe I stay happy with the SS and my next toy is a router table instead of a new scroll saw. I’ll probably change my mind tomorrow LOL. I have two additions to finish up, and a new one to start, so my leisure time is going to be in very small supply for the next couple of months.  I’m most likely compensating for that by all my imaginary shopping I’m doing.

Couldn't say it better myself.  Thanks

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
