That’s right guys, a 20” RBI Hawk !!! Made in the good ole USA !! I found this on craigslist for $100. I couldn’t get there fast enough. I even got the magnifier light and lots of extra blades. Apparently the man I bought it from bought it intending to make wooden toys and decided scrolling wasn’t his thing, and just wanted it out of the garage. Lucky for me !! Well I need to get back out to the shed and make up for lost time without a saw. It’s great to be back. Terri Lynne

Looks nice. I think you should raise the table to match your height, though, or get a stool… bending over like that will get old fast. Have fun scrolling :) .

I need to get Mike to build a platform for it and raise the back up a little too. It’s easier to see your work when it’s on a tilt. I just couldn’t wait !

Congrats! I have the 26” version and love it. That’s a heck of a deal, the light is worth half of what you paid. Now you know, we all expect to see some projects posted soon! LOL

That was worth buying even if all you do is chop firewood! Great score.

Great score Terri, and I hope you get the platform soon….. but maybe you should hire the job out to a carpenter.

Sounds pretty wonderful. I’d add some “riser-blocks”, or something on those legs to give your back some relief. :) Just an idea
