General Scroll Saw Talk / Re: Advice for Led magnifying light
« Last post by jscott2 on October 16, 2017, 11:11:57 PM »
A few years ago I bought a light much like this,43349  Got it on sale which was a bonus.

I mounted it on a block attached to the wall so it isn't affected by any vibration that comes from the saw.  Use it to light the scroll saw and the drill press table.  Getting up close to the lens doesn't bother me as there is little heat generated by the LED bulbs. Wouldn't work without it.

I bought a mag light setup from harbor freight has a clamp on the base of it to clamp to a stand or table and I love mine, helped alot seeign where I was cutting, plus I used it for other stuff in the shop not just scroll sawing, pulling splinters out of my finger, seeing small parts when working on mowers anything I needed to see that was small I looked under that mag light to made it alot easier. Mine takes a cfl round bulb if there is a led replacement when I need I will go that route untill I will use it till bulb goes out.

I actually wen tback and bought another for the wifes crafting so see could see to work on small stuff plus haveing the light right abover her to light up the work table helped her alot. Both lights work great and have not giving any issues and both still have the same bulbs in them when we bought them.
Ask Steve a question. / Scrollnado modification

Steve's video review of Scrollnado is very informative - especially helpful are his modifications to maximize dust collection.  I wonder if trimming the upper hose on a bias would help collect additional amounts of saw dust?  Here is a drawing (worth a thousand words perhaps?) that illustrates what I have in mind.  It would not only direct all of the suction down toward the work surface, the bevel would help the hose clear work material passing beneath it.  I would like to get Steve's or the manufacturer's opinion on this modification while I am making a decision whether to buy a Scrollnado (or a current Scrollnado user's input.)  Thanks, Joel

Depending on the wood I would use a FD UR#5.

I use my Excalibur Scrollsaw as a support tool for my woodworking hobby interest. Iím finding more and more enjoyment from using my saw and I see a Magnifying Light would be a huge bonus for me towards my cutting and with todayís impressive LEDís Iím sure Iíd be happy with this setup. Iím a big believer in experience and Iíd like to know some proís/conís or what your using to help guide me. Thanks so muchó
