    Hegner variable speed....varying?

    Been distracted doing my tax return, but back on the saw today, this morning it was playing up, so while I'm waiting for new switch to arrive I swapped over the wires onto the two spare prongs on the switch. Scrolled for 3 hours and so far it's behaving itself 🤞hoping that's it sorted, although...

    Hegner variable speed....varying?

    Thanks, have no idea what that means, but I will look it up. I've never soldered before, but if I can't do it I know a man who can, although he does seem to hide now when I ask his advice, things always seem to end up being more difficult than they appear 🤣

    Hegner variable speed....varying?

    Hi scrimper, thanks for your help. Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I'm guessing that I have a faulty connection somewhere, which is going to be hard to pin down. I did speak with hegner early on, they thought I could replace the unit, but I've looked in there, it looks complicated 🤣 Its...

    Hegner variable speed....varying?

    I've been a hegner owner for a good few years now, and love them... but... My 2013 2se started giving me problems quite a while ago, it is losing speed/power erratically. When it first started doing it, it appeared to be a loose wire connector in the switch, now reconnected, but it's driving me...

    Please can someone help me purchase a scroll saw please?

    Hi Ian My advice would be to keep an eye on eBay for a second hand hegner. You should be able to find one within your budget, ask the sellers if they are willing to pack it up for a carrier if necessary, many are, and it should only add around £15 top. Ask yourself if you really need variable...

    I am new to scroll sawing. How long should it take roughly to make a chess piece using compound cuts.

    I don't know your saw, but daft question, if it's variable speed, do you have the speed at full? Packing tape or selotape will help to reduce burning, and maybe try #5 blade for that thickness of wood? I use pretty much entirely pegas modified geometry blades now, a 5 or a 7 would be better for...

    Bandsaw Blades

    I don't comment very often, but felt I had to here As a know nothing about band saws, I have struggled occasionally with what to buy and how to use it when I do. I have bought from Axminster, and it was fine. I consistently buy from Tuffsaws now partly because the blades do the the job I abuse...

    Vibrating floor

    Funny you should say that... moved it all about to make it more permanent, and I swear it's not quite as good 🤣 Yes, I've dropped in and out over the years, I'm sure you've helped me out in the past, as have lots of others 😊 Nice to see it's easier to post pics now. I make lots of different...

    Vibrating floor

    Thanks for the reply. I'll start with some concrete blocks, failing that, do you think another layer of better quality 18mm ply screwed down to the floor bearers, which are roughly 2ft apart will do the job?

    Vibrating floor

    Thanks for replying, that's one of my thoughts, I bought a rubber shock absorbing mat and put it under the saw, that made it worse, keep meaning to try some under the legs, will give it a go 🤞😊

    Vibrating floor

    Hi guys I wonder if anyone has ever solved the issues of scrolling in a wooden shed? I recently moved from my 8x6 to my new 10x14 shed, which is lovely, but the floor is disappointingly cheap plywood. I built a really sturdy workbench, but still getting quite a lot of vibration. It's not the...

    Dust collection

    Thanks for your reply, I suspect a cyclone thingy is the answer, sadly I just don't have any space left, one day I'll get a bigger shed...

    Dust collection

    I do a lot of scrolling, and create a lot of dust. I treated myself to a triton dust collector, which fits my shed, just, and my pocket, but have found it to be almost useless as the filter clogs up VERY quickly. I've tried bodging up a quick directional extension to the dust inlet to try to...

    Pegas blades advice please?

    I've been in touch with Axminster, who as ever, have been great and followed this up all the way through. I've sent them a copy of the reply from pegas, who have also been extremely helpful, so nice not to just be brushed off. As I say, I've been using some of the blades as I'm so low on stock...
