The Rustoleum Hammered Black was a perfect choice for your saw IMO. I've used it on a couple of planes. I really like the look it gives. I have a few more I intend to use it on as well...purists will freak out, but the planes are mine and hopefully will get put to use some day.:blink:

@Grandpadave52

I live about 5 miles from the Rust-oleum plant , and have a friend that works there.

He gets me cans that don't pass inspection. (I can't see anything wrong with them but the price is right):2030125484_TwoThumbsUp:

IMHO the Hammered Black fits the character of my machines, and dresses them up quite well. It also helps hide casting flaws etc..

I agree with you about the "Purists", let them freak out! :1979502852_DevilLaughing: 

The machines I start with are usually what most people would consider parts machines, or worse. :(

I see the "Diamond in the rough":1726666591_DayDreaming: and enjoy the challenge of bringing them back to life. :D

Besides that they have a cool B) factor that I just can't/don't see in something that is half plastic.

I forgot to mention between the two saws I used plus a near perfect period correct motor that I got for $25.00 I've got about $100.00 tied up in this Scroll Saw. I've got way more time than money so I figure I get way more bang for my buck going the old machine route.

Here's the $25.00 motor that will power my combination of machines when they're all done.

Sweet restore Larry.  Is this motor tag one of your GIMP's?  I would sure like to see a little more of this process...

Larry, you're fine, personally I am enjoying everything here, Whichman didn't mind, it was just a friendly reminder is all for future "stuff".

I am still doing back flips that you decided to grace us with your presence, once again. :1726666591_DayDreaming:

Last day at the market 2018:

Is that a picture frame or a small mirror/frame? VERY nice! Your detail is simply amazing. Hope you had a good crowd & customer base. 

Green Valley Products still meeting your needs? I still haven't made it down there yet.

@Wichman3 I was MIA for awhile, and missed your posts.

I just looked through some of your posts, and must say you do some beautiful fretwork! :2030125484_TwoThumbsUp:

Hope you return so we can see more of your work.

It's both a mirror and a picture frame :) Just rotate the frame to get what you want. My first order through Green Valley was great, I'm about to put in another. (I'm trying to use all or at least most of the order before I order more (scrap piles annoy me, because I'm a packrat).

I uploaded pictures of the mirror/photoframe to my gallery, couldn't find the projects gallery.

Great. Happy they worked out. I will get there one of these days...not that many miles but still about 75-80 minutes from here since it's mostly secondary state highways that include lots of curves and hills.

Well at least we share something in common.:lol:

Personally I use an Excaliber EX21.  Love the idea of a large table and the tilting arm (as opposed to the tilting table)

I have an Excaliber 16 and love it. It's very smooth and easy to operate. The only downside is the dust collection, it is useless.

 

I use the Pegas MGT blades. These blades are different than others. You feed your pattern line straight into the blade instead of at an angle.

Herb, what didn't you like about the Hegner? They're supposed to be primo.

I have heard some not so good thing about the Hegner. I have an Excaliber and love it. I think it's a better saw than the Hegner. The Excaliber is out of production but there are several copies being made. You can still get parts for the Excaliber, partly because of the copies being made. I know Woodcraft is selling the brand called King which is a copy.

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.
