What do you buy a woodworker for Christmas? Scott and Suzy Phillips, “The American Woodshop” co-hosts, have the answers on their 2017 holiday gift list.
I started scroll sawing in 1971 with a Delta machine that had a primitive spring mechanism on the top of the blade. Thankfully, things have come a long way.
The American Woodshop co-hosts Scott and Suzy Phillips will focus Season 26 of their long-running PBS television show on a history in wood with custom creations from independent woodshops across the country. Thirteen new episodes will begin airing Saturday, January 19. Check your local PBS station for airtimes. Woodcraft is proud to continue our sponsorship of The American Woodshop.
King 16" scroll saw
I'm a little disappointed in the scroll saw. The silver finish on the table wears off and leaves a black table. Also it is hard to install a new blade in the upper blade holder.
I purchased this saw a couple weeks ago, I have been scrolling for a few years now, and wanted a better saw, from all I have learned online this was the saw for me, and I was not disappointed, I use Flying Dutchman blades and I am amazed how well it cuts, nice tight turns, smooth cuts, its a great saw, I say if your starting off and can afford it, drop the hammer on it and get it, the smoothness is well worth it alone. Even my son, who is 9, finds it easy to scroll on it for the first time.
A good scrollsawing choice
Scroll saws bearing several brand names in this group use the same engineering to grasp and move the blade and to tilt the arm to change the bevel. Color schemes and badges vary with the names. The King KXL-16 is a robust machine that keeps the metrics I set and delivers excellent results without a lot of fiddling. As a hobbyist, I can’t imagine tackling a project with so much real estate that I would need a deeper throat, but the 16 sits comfortably on the 20-by-24 mobile cabinet base I built for it. Size matters in a small shop. With any scroller the enjoyment or lack comes down to the ease of changing the blade and moving the blade from hole to hole in the work piece. Muscle memory replaced fumbling quickly for this model, and the tensioning lever (pretty much standard with Seyco, Excalibur, Pegas et al.) really helps. The tilting head, the sawdust blower and other features deliver as advertised. I added a foot switch (press on, press off) as soon as I ordered the saw. I am happy with my KXL-16, which was chosen after a lot of research on-line and in stores. My ancient Dremel scroller still runs, so I use it as a sander for close quarters.
