Hi to all :-) I am new here, just saw this website and thought its a good place to hang around for a while :-)
I am interested to buy one of these scroll machine MicroLux Mini Scroll Saw or Scroll Saw DS115/E, to cut silver, copper and gold etc for making jewelry, could you help me and give me a review about it? are these machine good? which one is better? will they cut saw accurately?

For this forged stainless steel torque,I started with 3/8ths solid square stock.I removed a fair amount of material for the 6 inch section that goes behind the back of the neck.I then ,(using the grinder)tapered the last 4 inches on both ends.I forged the ends into spirals then set about the twist patterns.The bar was still straight at this point except for the forged spirals on the ends.I did a soft grind and polish to remove the scratches,then with the final heat forged the bar around a pre-made form to the shape you see...
