Stick, In my country Trinidad and Tobago we don't have Hegner and looking at Amazon it is too pricey for my pocket. I have either porter cable or dewalt so I would much prefer dewalt. Thanks anyway for the suggestion. I take serious note of you postings and apply where I can.

Stick,
I was given an older Hegner with stand. Can I put casters on it without the metal tabs
bending when moving?

You JUST started when you posted this? WOW. Nice work.

Can I ask where you get patterns to do that stuff ? Just got a scroll saw - and in the mood to start it up.
Winter coming - cold last night - and it's just seeming like the right time.

Thanks, Gus

Gus; where you finding these threads?! That last comment (prior to yours) was from 2014!
A lot of these folks have fallen by the wayside in one way or another.

This is a 5 year old thread. Still, some OK info..

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Similar to "like"button? If I see an item/post that I like, or deem deserving merit,I could make a distinction if we had the "kudos" button, whereas now I just hit the like button.

Tom, I never look at the date of a post. I enjoy reading them even tho I make a fool out of myself at times.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
