Well I'm a little bummed about this one. This may not mean much to any of you guys but for those of use who scroll, it is a huge blow as far as getting equipment goes. I had one of my youtube viewers ask me about getting a scroll saw. They really wanted to get an Excalibur. He found a local supplier who said that they had them in stock and he purchased an EX-21. When it arrived, he excitedly put it together and then noticed the name on the side of the saw. EXCELSIOR. What the heck is that? He contacted me and asked what was going on and in my efforts to help anyone I can, I called him on the phone. He was quite distraught, thinking that the supplier had duped him and sent him a very expensive knock off. I looked at the pictures of the saw and thought "if this is a knock off, it's one hell of a good one". I ended up calling the sales rep for Excalibur that I have dealt with for years and spoke with him. Turns out that about 3 years ago, the Canadian division of the Excalibur, through General International Tools, was bought out and that the Excalibur was now being manufactured by King Canada. They are using all the same specs and tooling to make the scroll saw but it no longer carries the Excalibur name due to copyright laws etc. My sales rep told me that although it is the same saw, he couldn't speak of what kind of quality control measures this new manufacturer had in place and that because of that, he couldn't vouch for the quality of the saw. It just kind of sucks that a brand that I've been loyal to for years has been down played by big business. I just hope that they have kept the same QC standards and that the product is still one that someone can be proud to own and use. I also hope that mine doesn't need repair parts any time soon because I'm not so sure that the parts made by King Canada will be as compatible if their QC isn't up to spec.
