  • Question ?

    If I turn up the speed on my scroll saw does that mean I'll make mistakes faster?

    I guess it would if you don't watch what you are doing.

      That got a chuckle from me for sure. In my case it sure could.
      Turning sharp corners with a high speed sometimes makes nice big circles.
      I do need to practice more.

          I have full speed about 98% of the time. Just let the blade do the cutting. To make turns, I put pressure on the back of the blade and just turn the wood.

            I agree with Mike. My Hegner is belt driven and I keep it at the fastest speed and just slow my feed rate. You learn how to do it very fast or you do make plenty of mistakes. When I cut on the slower speed Hegner saw it seems to slow.

              Maybe not any faster, but in my experience, they are GREATLY magnified.

                I have found that the speed I have saw set at has does not cause me to make mistakes faster they just show up sooner. I slow my feed rate down for higher saw speed.

                  "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                  I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                  My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                  None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
