Default RE: Scratch Designed/Built Sailplane

very nice build.. Which scroll saw are you using for cutting the ribs?
Thank you. Mine is a bog-standard, entry level, 16" scroll saw from Skil Tools. Other than color, as far as I can tell its identical to the Ryobi scroll saw currently available at the Home Depot. Both are relativly cheap, kinda wobbly, vibrate like crazy at high speed but are invaluable in the workshop. I'm not sure how I ever got along without one. There's several other brands worth a look but if you have the cash & want a quality tool, I've heard the DeWALT DW877 is the saw to get. Silky smooth, vibration free cutting & made to last.
