      looking for a fix...

      I was over on the MSN free site and came across a pattern I wouldn't mind doing. I tried printing it but I guess it was to big for my printer and I only got half.
      so what's the trick for those free patterns?

        Possible solutions

        Hmmm,

        Don't you have an option on your printer that says "fit to a page"?

        It should reduce the size so it prints on one page.

        Or you can try and resize the image with some imaging software.

        I'm sure a guy feeling withdrawal will find a solution

          Depending on the program you are using to print with there are different ways. I use Adobe Photoshop CS2. With that you can go into a print preview and select one half of the pattern, then repeat the process and select the other half. Don't forget to leave some overlap on each side to help line everything up. Most people seem to use PSP, so hopefully somebody can give you the 'How To' on that one.

            I saved it and then that gave me more printer options so I printed it as a landscape which did the trick...

            I found a pattern of a 34 Frod Truck...
            that should hold me over until I get some more wood. I gave my first steelhead trout away so I think it's time I make one for our wall...

            thanks again

              because the 8 1/2 X 11 is a little small and the truck doesn't fit that fully eather...

                  I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                  I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                  Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                  One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                  I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                  Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                  If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
