    I bought my first copy of Wood Carving Illustrated today.

    What a magazine! I can hardly wait to try out some pyrography.
    The magazine is chock full of projects, photos and hints and tips.
    I wont give up scrolling for carving but I am sure I will buy another issue or two in the future.

    Good work FoxChapel

    You're hooked now!! I get both mags, and I'd be hard put to decide which one to give up, if it came to that. You will find a lot of tips that apply to both scrolling and carving in both - cutting, storing, choosing the wood, finishing, pattern making. Pyrography is applicable to both arts, and many of the relief patterns would be great scrolled, and vice versa.
    Fox Chapel really does do a great job - now if we could just get more issues a year (I think I hear hair ripping out in the publishing offices as I write!).

      The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

      Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.

      I have a magnetic sheet on my EX for over 2 years and still smooth, once in awhile I sprayed it with greaseless lube and wood slide real good. Highly recommended.
