  • Ray Wilckens

    Just thought everyone should know. I just received the Dec issue of the other magazine (CWWC) and in it was a tribute to Ray Wilckens, who died this September. I never met him but have cut some of his and his son Dan's patterns which are always challenging but fair. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

    We had the pleasure of meeting the Wilckens family at scroll saw events. Ray and his family were very enthusiastic and involved with scrolling. Ray enjoyed feedback and was willing to help if asked, and we shall miss him. We hope we shall still see Wilckens patterns and appearences in future magazines and events. Hopfully our messages of caring help the family at this difficult time.

      Ray will be missed by many. He was a great guy. I had the pleasure of meeting him many times over the years at many scrollsaw Picnics, tradeshows, expos, or whatever you want to call them.He and his son have designed and created some of the greatest scrolling projects out there. I too hope Dan keeps on designing those great heirlooms! RIP Ray

        Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
        by cwmagee
        A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
        That is...

        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
