Paul Corliss from Paul's Messy Workshop reviews the Hegner Multimax-18.

One brand of scroll saw that I do not have hands on experience with is the Hegner. I try to keep up with as many saws as possible so I can answer questions from my readers. I am comfortable talking about the Hegner features and reputation but there is nothing like driving the saw to be able to give a competent opinion.

Fortunately Paul Corlis from Paul's Messy Workshop sent me an email this morning. He has owned the Hegner Multimax-18 for several years. He posted a video talking about his opinion of the machine. It's not what I would call a full on technical review but he spends just a few minutes discussing his like and dislikes.

The Hegner brand is sold by Advanced Machinery. These are premium level saws. They are built to last and have a reputation for smooth operation. The models run between $750 up to well over $3000 for the Hegner Polymax.

If the good folks over at Advanced Machinery would like to send me a saw(wink wink) I would be happy to do a complete technical review. Can't blame a guy for wishing...

Take a look at Paul's video if you are interested the the Hegner brand of saws.
