  • 500 paper snowflakes

    Well I finished cutting them. Lots of elves came to the office to hang them from the ceiling.
    I also cut three 4'x8' sheets of Styrofoam to make some church windows.
    I was going to make a hot wire scroll saw but for a single project it wasn't worth it.
    I cut them out with a soldering gun. I was outside in a breezy area. Those Styrofoam fumes are not too good

    The Styrofoam was covered with plastic table cloths and mini lights were placed behind them. The look is a cross between stained glass and lights covered in snow.

    Wow, Wow, Wow!!

    Wow, Wow, Wow!!

    Great work! I'm really impressed! I don't have time this year, but maybe next year, if I start early enough... You've inspired at least one scroller to do something similar.

    Merry Christmas,
    Dan

              Hi Carl

              Those church windows look rather large as well as impressive. I might have been tempted to have cut them with a jigsaw.

                The soldering gun sliding down a metal straightedge was like cutting through butter with a hot knife.
                Best thing is there was no sawdust. Worst thing is the fumes are gross. I think they may have an effect on the nervous system too, I think they may have an effect on the nervous system too.
                Either that or my memory memory.
                Not too sure anymore, Next time I wont inhale

                  Carl,
                  Really cool results!!
                  If there is a next time, and you haven't invested in some kind of fume mask, try setting up a fan as close as possible to your work, drawing the fumes away from you. (Of course, not into anywhere anyone else is breathing!) It doesn't cool it down like a fan blowing across your work might, but it really helps keep the stuff out of yer lungs. I use this a lot when pyrographing (woodburning) on stinky wood, or (briefly) over super-glued parts. It is easier than not inhaling!

                      I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                      Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...
