    Gary Browning has a book out on it (Scroll Saw Portraits), but there are several people on the site who make their own patterns. I know Canadian Scroller uses Serif a lot...perhaps he can help!

              I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

              Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

              Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
