« Part 58: Embellish of existing patterns Part 59 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 60: New Scrollsaw Almost setup »

I have had a DeWalt scroll saw for about three years and it has been one fine saw. I did buy it used but still got a deal, I think. It has started showing signs of wear and age. Perhaps a few parts would make it much better but who knows.

So last night and again this morning, I talked to Ray at Seyco and they have put on reserve their last Excalibur EX-16. This is reported to be one of the finest saws on the market and well fits my needs. I know some people will say they like others and that is OK.

I a few days I will have my DeWalt for sale and will place a good E-Bay price on it.

Congratulations on the move up, I am sure you will be happy with the new saw, and looking at your work
you deserve it.

I bought the Excalibur 30” and love it. I got rid of my Dewalt and regret it . There have been many times I wished I had it back. Not because I don’t like my Excalibur but because my daughter and some of my grandkids are getting into scroll sawing and are always wanting to use the saw. It would be handy to have another saw for them and for people that want to learn to scroll. It would be easier to get others into scrolling if I had another saw. Just a thought.
