Well I guess I ran a foul of the posting laws yesterday. In my excitement of getting a new Scroll Saw I assume that I posted it in the wrong area. Not that I have not seen lots of other posting place there that did not belong – Oh well lesson learned.
As I have stated in my past post, I have begun reviewing my “business plan” for 2012. One of the items on the list is/was a better Scrollsaw. The Dewalt or Delta was the two of choice in my price range. I have been searching Craig’s List for several weeks looking for one to purchase. I found several but in my opinion they were either “well used” or were asking too much. Yesterday I found the saw I wanted, at the price I wanted to pay, and from the person that I felt comfortable in purchasing from.
As I am sure anyone knows, the DeWalt Type 1 is the only one to consider. The Type 2 is the newer model made “overseas” and has some reported issues. Some of those are the table not being flat, the tension lever not working correctly and (I guess) other problems. Now I am not claiming to be any type of expert here but this is just what I have seen printed.
Now my project of reorganizing the garage to fit one more woodworking tool into space available is a project that must be accomplished THIS WEEK.
Anyway, I now have my new (to me) saw and have used it for one small project. It works SOOOO much better than my previous one purchased from the BIG BOX hardware store. I now can understand what Shelia, and others, said in their posts about purchasing only the upper end units. However I still have a passion for us that could not afford to enter the world of ‘Scroll Sawing” at that price level.
I hope to post several “WOODWORKING” projects from the new saw soon and as always Thanks for Looking.
