I have a Hegner, but am not on the level of scroll work the guys above are. Still, I only paid a couple hundred off craigslist and it’s a nice machine. Said another way, don’t sneeze at it, if you can get a good buy on one. Just make sure it’s a variable speed and you can run a foot pedal.

Regardless of what you get, blade swaps and such need to be fast and easy.

These things said, I agree the Hawks and Excaliburs are impressive machines. In the end, they all have their advantages and there’s going to be a lot of Ford vs Chevy attempts to influence your decision, so gather fact on the names that repeat and chase your personal preferences and needs.
