  • Pomeroy Cross question

    In the spring 2001 issue an article was published. "A Page From the History of Scrolling." I do not have the magazine, but borrowed the magazine and made the cross of which I posted a picture here. Can anyone give my any information on the origin of this cross ? I think the article said the origin was from the 1800's, but I am hoping for more information. (The 'S" in the cross resembles the dollar sign which brings comments usually). I found the article in the article index. By the way, I subscribed to the magazine later because it gave me so much information that I needed as a neophyte to scrolling. Thanks for any help.

        I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
        I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

        I used...

        If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

        After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
        I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

        Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

        Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
