  1. I have an old Delta 40-560 scroll saw. The air diaphragm, or bellows, that generates the air flow to keep the cut line free of dust is shot. I can't find a replacement for this part anywhere. I emailed Delta, but they don't have a replacement. They recommended I check with another company that specializes in obsolete and discontinued parts, but I struck out there. So here is my question. You know the flex seal product, where the pitch man sticks a patch on a leaking 5 gal bucket of water, or cuts a boat in half and then fixes it with the tape version of this product? Would that fix the bellows on my scroll saw? I'm thinking of a quick dip in a can of this stuff, or maybe painting a layer on the bellows with an acid brush. I use a scroll saw so seldom that a purchase of a new one, or even a used one, just doesn't make sense. Everything else works fine. I can use it this way if necessary, but after a while I get dizzy from trying to blow a steady stream of air so that I can see where I am cutting. Any suggestions?
  2. New (to me) scrollsaw?

    Hi, I am in need of advice from those more knowledgeable than me (so everybody). I’ve been looking on the various used items websites and have found two scroll saws I think I’m interested in. One is a 2004 Hegner Unimax, listed as brand new. This soon not seem to be sold any longer. They are asking $250 for it. Will it serve the needs of a newbie, and yet maybe last into journeyman status, or if I take to scrolling will it not be adequate in the future? Two is an RBI Industries scroll saw, used, and model number not listed. It also looks like the upper bar that holds the safety/clamp (I’m sure my naming of the parts is incorrect). That is next to the upper bar that holds the blade is missing. I have not received any contact back from the lister. This one is being sold for $75 which would give me some leeway parts wise. I got a lucky break over the weekend and got a $300 windfall, so either of these does not come out of the family budget (at least that’s what I’m telling myself LOL). Option 3 is wait till refund from taxes enters bank account, and dip into that for $250 and buy a new DeWalt 788 from Grizzly. I think that’s around $530 total, with shipping, stand and light. Any and all opinions wanted, and welcome. Thanks Artie
  3. Amazing Discovery in trimming

    First of all, when I use the term "trimming", to me, it means making the cut just a little bit wider. In scrolling there is no "untrimming" Let me put a picture up that might help: The red line is the blade and the blue line is my cut. I am cutting on 3/4" maple with some pretty hairy cuts. The blade I chose is a Flying Dutchman UR3. As you can see, the needed cut is a little over twice the width of the blade. My first cut is down the left side from A to B. Then I back the blade up and "trim" the right side from A to B. This was working great until, all of a sudden, this didn't work any more. Couldn't perform the task. SOOOOO, being the resourceful guy I am (and cheap) - (ops - meant frugal), instead of changing the blade I tried reversing the procedure. First cut down the right side and then followed up on the left side. Worked like a charm. OK, guys, what changed??????????????
  4. 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??????

  6. New Military Items

    Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Wife has been quite sick and all my attention is on her and her recovery. That being said, I have spent a little time in the shop to work on a few Steve Good military patterns. Examples below. Hope everyone had a great turkey/ham day and with Christmas coming up, please remember the reason for the season. In alphabetical order (so I don't get into any more trouble). Maple on Sephelle
  7. I have a question about scroll saw blade nomenclature. I am doing a project that requires some scroll saw blade work, and the plans specify a #2 reverse tooth scroll saw blade. I understand the reverse tooth, but what does the #2 signify? I was looking at a scroll saw blade selection chart on the Olson blade web site, and every specification that I could imagine was listed on the chart, along with a Universal Number column. Any ideas?
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
