I had an email from a reader the other day who uses a wheelchair. They ask about scroll saw stands that would accommodate the chair comfortably. I knew that Hawk made such a stand for their saws but I was not aware of a generic stand.
I did what I always do and asked Google. Right off the bat I found that The Art Factory sold exactly what we were looking for. Not only does the stand look great but it comes from one of the most trusted scroll saw sites on the web.
The price is a bit steep but if it gives you an opportunity to pursue your hobby without pain or discomfort it may be worth the price. This stand is also recommended for those who want to use a chair instead of a tall stool that is normal for most stands.
You can click the link to view the details but it says it works with the Excalibur, PS Wood, Hawk and DeWalt saws as well as many others. The image is linked to The Art Factory web site.
Click now and make a family heirloom this weekend.
DVD and the 2013 update DVD at this link. DVD #1 is $20 and contains over 1,100 patterns. The 2013 update DVD is $7.50 and has another 178 patterns. The 2014 update DVD is $7.50 and has another 223 patterns.
If you are looking to move up from an entry level saw this is a good buy. This Delta 40-690 is sold without the stand and light so the price is under $380. I normally recommend you buy the stand that comes with a scroll saw but if price is a barrier this does help.
