Hi Jim, welcome to the forum. We've been following the Hawk saga over the past few months and it's good to see that the company has a future.

I don't have a Hawk saw, but I am interested to see what happens, going forward. Good luck to you and your partners.

Send a message via Yahoo to Rick-H

You should set up a booth a the Wisconsin Picnic coming up on the 31st of this month. At least get out there to the scrollong community and let them know what the plans are for the new company.

Hi, Jim It's good to hear that a Co. is saved. Hope everything works for you & good luck in the future. I assume you are located here in U.S. Glad the Manufacturing wasn't moved to another Country for a change ! Thanks for your saving abilities. Good Luck Perk

.Looking to see/learn what/how/why,,you know what makes Uall tick!! WHAT? creating something with your own hands, and giving as gifts. HOW? In your own world where stress of life is'nt welcomed.(Man Cave). WHY? anything that can make you happy, and make others happy. why not do it. What makes you Tic? Scrolling and working with wood.is what keeps me Ticking.. When I show someone something that I created, and they say WOW! I wont that. Now thats a true Tic getter,.PS, dont forget the money you can make.

What? I make whatever strikes my fancy or my family's and friends. Scrolling isn't the only woodworking I do but it has become and addicting part of it.
Why? It's relaxing, I enjoy creating stuff that makes others and myself happy. Reading a book is enjoyable and relaxing, so it boating and gardening but in the end what have you got? A couple of hours or days in the shop on the other hand.....then you have something you can put your hands on, something you can feel, you made something from a pile of sticks that is beautiful, or functional or just pretty.
And too, it keeps me out of "Gin mills and Houses of Ill Repute"
You guys make a good quality product, listen to your customers provide the best customer service you possibly can and scrollers and woodworkers will be beating down your doors. Good luck, I'd hate to be starting a business in this economic climate. Pat

Hi, Jim. Welcome to the board! Nice to have a tool techician here; don't be surprised if you get a lot of questions about people's saw's dings and pings.

I've got a Dewalt myself, and am really happy with it. Good luck working with the Hawk!

If you're looking for professional feedback, I think most of us like saws which are reliable, vibrate very little, have some degree of muscle, and (very important) have an easily performed blade change mechanism.

I like low vibration and a deep throat so I could cut large yard designs easy to change blades

Jim, how about a web site, phone # etc. so that we Hawk owners can contact you if we need something or have a question. Glad that the brand is still around.
