I unpacked the my new scroll saw today. After much deliberation thinking and talking I decided that i would buy the Excalibur 21 inch saw. I have to say that the saw was very nicely packed and worked straight out of the box only requiring that the power cable be inserted. I am not sure what the exact name of the saw is as the manufacturer seems to be transitioning form Excalibur to General and now its sports a shiny new black paint job rather than the previous drab green.
There are lots of videos on youtube that show the saw being unboxed or reviewed. The saw is smooth and very quiet so for now I am very happy with it. I will do some videos once I have had time to get some projects organised.
I mainly want to use it to make carving blanks for a style of Scandinavian carving that I am interested in. Being able to rough out the figures first will save time and hopefully improve accuracy.
