    I recently installed windows 7 on my computer and lost a lot of stuff.
    One thing were the great fonts that we use on the scroll saw.
    I think I got them from Steve Good but not sure.
    Were they with a program he has or did they come with something else.
    I need to make letters for my grandson's bedroom doors.

    thanks

    There are thousands of fonts out there and Windows 7 installed some new ones but the removed a lot of the old ones that came with XP and earlier editions of Windows. You can install any font you want as long as you have the font file. Do you know the name of the font you want to use? I have not tried running Steve's programs with Win7 so I'm not sure if they would work or not but if you have the Professional or Ultimate edition of Win7 you can download and install XP mode from Microsoft.

        You can go to dafont and find some to download for free or do a Google search for free fonts and pick a site. If you know the font names that would make it much easier. You can use multiple fonts for scrolling as long as your program lets you adjust spacing etc.

          Stephen, Steve Good has a pattern making software that has 4 or 5 different fonts in it. Maybe that's what you want. Don

            Stephen, you most likely are referring to the fonts made by Sylvia (Jr_Ranger)Mendiola. You may be able to contact her through her website, Kerf Designs, Welcome to Kerf Designs to see if she might email you the fonts. Hope this helps you.

              StephenD, if you have Word on your computer, there are several fonts there that work. I use Formalscrp421 BT a lot. You have to make your own bridges for the capitals A, B and D. The lower case letters are all scrollable.

                Shoot, heck, I realized that I can use any font in word.
                Pick a font, bolderize it, choose format/font/outline and voila. I can also choose spacing from the font menu and bring the little buggers closer together and over lap em if I want.
                Thanks for the help. You all did me a great service with your input.
                Mick, I couldn't find that font, but I have gobs of others to choose from.

                    Sweet looking display. Excellent examples of the puzzles.

                    In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                    Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                    The outside
                    of the extension is almost finished apart...

                    Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
