    By now everyone here should know I tend to surf the net as much as many of you scroll.

    Well I have come upon a nostalgic site of paper cut outs. These are movable toys made of paper. It would be so easy to glue the paper to BB ply and end up with a really novel folk toy.

    The files are PDF and although some of the pictures have speckles and dirt on them I am sure they would clean up real nice once they are cut.

    These were originally published in 1922 and 1923, it is amazing to see the stereotypes of that era.

    I hope someone cuts some of these out and posts them.

      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

      My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

      I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

      Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

      Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.

      Welcome to the group. I look forward to seeing more of your work. You will probably need to slow down you scroll saw when cutting the urethane on the scroll saw. If the blade gets to hot it will fuse back together.

      thanks for the kind words - I'm not really a scroller "enthusiast", per se. I like to make dimensional signs and have always used the band saw, routers, or Roto-Zip to cut the elements out then do some handcarving to perk them up a bit. I'll put some of my projects in my folder later on....
