« Part 59: Time for a new saw Part 60 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 61: A Project almost above my ability »

My DeWalt scroll saw had a lot of miles on it. Now it still was doing just great but I still worried about it’s condition. I posted the DeWalt on my FaceBook page and with in three hours it was sold. So I had build up some extra money in my scroll saw account. I talked to Ray at Seyco and he said he had one Excaliber EX-16 and that size would just fit my needs. As a live not too far from his business I said I would drive down and pick it up. As it turned out that morning we had 3 inches of snow in the Dallas area. I called Ray to see if he was open. He answered the phone and said he would stay if I was going to come down. Well and exciting trip but I made it safe and he showed me a much shorter route home. He is a wonderful person and great to do business with.

Yesterday afternoon I got out in the garage and took the DeWalt off the custom stand I had made. I had to do some adapters for the new saw but it is on and bolted down. Today I need to work on the vacuum system, mount the blade storage system I made plus some other details.

I did turn on the Ex-16 for a minute and I will say you can hardly hear it running.

Here are some pictures of the mounting so far.

I can’t wait to cut wood.

I am so jealous. I have a similar setup with my DeWalt.
