When I first started my woodworking business in 1990 I started out small, cutting out hundreds of shapes for local crafters to adorn with decorative painting. Thirty years later and I still have a few loyal customers who occasionally order more of the same. Like this pile of 120 gingerbread cutouts and 10 shamrocks cut from sugar pine milled to 5/8” thick. My first scroll saw was used RBI Hawk that I picked up for $300. It got a lot of use and performed so well that I bought a new RBI a few years later. I sold the old one which was still running fairly well for $200. I’ve gotten more than my money’s worth out of both and over the years they allowed me to cut out thousands of shapes .

Hawks are great saw and been around for a log time. Unfortunately, the people that own the Hawk business currently, are struggling and not providing the service one would expect from a saw of this expense. They are not noted for providing service. It is a big discussion point at Scroll Saw Village. Sad to see.

Glad you are getting good use out of yours. Hope the current provider get things squared away and run the company properly….
