Finally!! I now have a scroll saw!
I've had it for a couple of weeks now, but I really haven't used it for anything. For some reason, I just haven't been in the mood to actually create anything lately. But then, I'm still glad that I got it - it was a great steal to begin with.
It was kinda hard to decide which scroll saw to choose. I have been planning to get one just for my hobbies and thought that the Dremel one will work best. I talked to Alexbear about it but he and his dad suggested that I get something more reliable, since I do tend to make a lot of stuff.
After a lot of contemplation, we decided to just drive by Sears and check out what they got - afterall I've been thinking of getting their Craftsman Scroll Saw. From the reviews and blogs that I've read, the Craftsman Scroll Saw is a good start for entry level woodworkers. It's cheap, and not really complicated to use. The biggest setback is the vibration - but that's something that I'll find out when I actually start using it.
I got it set up in the basement. I don't know yet if I will bolt it down or not. I'm yet to figure it out and see if what they claim to be really bad vibration is really bad.
Plans for the future?
Ah yes, the lovely, lovely X-Carve. So it's like the Cricut of Wood working. It's basically a CNC machine for small scale wood projects. It can cut and engrave wood, acrylic and (again, from my research) some aluminum.
This baby right here is about three times the price of my Cricut Maker. I have options, but I opt to get the largest one because I don't really think the price for a 500mm justifies it - so I'll get the 1000mm and go from there.
It will take some time before I could actually go get it. It's a lot of money for me, and I have some other things to prioritize so unfortunately, as much as I want it now, it's really gonna have to wait.
In the mean time, I'll be doing more projects starting next week. Craft fair is coming up, and gotta step up my game. I've been just too lazy, winter is getting to me!
I've always kept a diary growing up, and come the digital age I always maintained a blog - until life got too busy.
