  • Software to view PDF in thumbnail format.

    If you are like me you have tons of PDF files on your computer, specially those of plans. Sometimes the names are not the most descriptive, some have just a series of numbers representing a date.
    I just downloaded a try before you buy program called ST Thumbnail from
    It shows a thumbnail of the PDF files on your pc. You can see a thumbnail of most file types. I have 10 days left in the trial but I have every intention of spending the $29.95 on the program.
    If you would like to see what is in the pdf before you open it, try the program.

    It does require Ghostscript software, which is a free download.

    I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

    I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.

    The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
