Everyone that knows me knows I am a scroller at heart. In 2008 my wife bought me a Craftsman Scroll Saw for Christmas and I haven’t stopped since then. My Craftsman Scroll saw has provided me a learning experience from which I have learned the art of scrolling, met new friends and mad a couple of dollars. But most of all it has allowed me to give my friends and Family things I have made which have brought joy to them. As far as the learning experience goes,....I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER PIECE OF EQUIPMENT WITH THE WORD CRAFTSMAN ON IT! It has been in the shop 4 times within the last 2 months. But, I have come out on top!
I belong to the DFW Scrollers here in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area to which I am an officer. We have monthly meetings to discuss the promotion of scrolling around the area. We put on demonstrations and also raise money by donating our crafts to different organizations. Well, after our meeting last Saturday, a very nice lady named Faye approached me and said “I have an old scroll saw in my garage. It is need some work but you’re handy and I think you can fix it. If you want it, you can have it”. Well I followed her to her house. She opened the garage and my knees got weak! There stood a 24 inch Excalibur that looked to be almost un-used WITH A STAND! The “work” it needed was to redirect the puffer which I did with two fingers! She GAVE IT TO ME FOR NOTHING!!! I had to hug her! :-)
