Santa Scroll Saw Pattern

A Christmas present in October.

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.

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.

  • Electronic variable speed can be adjusted from 400-1,750 SPM for a wide array of cutting applications
  • Dual parallel link arm design reduces vibration reducing over and under cutting improving accuracy and quality
  • Upper arm lifts and locks in the raised position during blade changes or while adjusting blade position for fret work
  • Tool-free blade clamp allows for quick, easy blade changes in seconds

In Memory of Arnold Palmer September 10, 1929 – September 25, 2016.

Arnold Palmer is generally considered one of the greatest golfers of all time. He was one of golf's most popular stars and its most important trailblazer. He was the first superstar of the sport's television age, which began in the 1950s.

In a career that spanned more than six decades, he won 62 PGA Tour titles from 1955 to 1973, placing him fifth on the Tour's all-time victory list. He collected seven major titles in a six-plus-year explosion, from the 1958 Masters to the 1964 Masters. He also won the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998, and in 1974 was one of the 13 original inductees into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

I have come to respect the Rikon brand. I own the older version of this band saw and it is a dream to re-saw lumber. I have used it to it's maximum capacity on walnut, cherry and maple. I did replace the standard blade with a Timber Wolf blade and that made it even better at re-sawing. If you need a band saw for your shop I think you will enjoy this one. Just make sure you set it up correctly and install a good blade. You will be cutting thin stock for your scroll saw projects like a pro.

  • Quick-release blade tension
  • 2 speeds: 1445/2950 ft/min
  • Hinged blade guard with sight window
  • Large 16-by-21-1/2-inch work table
  • 4-inch dust port

KaBoom! Word Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

Here is a little comic nostalgia to hang on your wall. Have a box of comic books. Glue this on the box. Better yet make a box for your comic books.

The Coyote will never learn.
