    Howdy Dave, nice shop you have there, I wish I had a few more windows like you do to get some natural lighting in.

    Welcome aboard.

    New to the message board

    My name is Dave Nichols. I live near Allentown, Pa. I have been Scrollsawing for about 9 years and doing woodworking for about 45 years. I have some pictures of my shop at the following link if anyones interested in looking at them. http://public.fotki.com/daven/woodwo...dworking_shop/ I enjoy building furniture, woodturning, toy making and of course scrollsawing.
    I do fretwork, intarsia and love doing the 3D pictures that Scroller sells plans for.

    Howdy Gus,

    I was also asked to find a hobby...but that advice came from my wife. Of course now she thinks I have some sort of affair going on with my scroll saw.

    Welcome Gus

    Hi Gus....Welcome aboard. I know just where you are. Been there several times. I lived in Mayport two different times as I was stationed aboard USS Saratoga for two tours. I really like that area and used to fish a lot at Guana Lake just up A1-A from you. Really nice folks on this site. Lots of help anytime you need it!!! Post some pics. of your work in the gallery, I'm sure we would all like to see them.

    Hello All

    Hello to all from St. Augustine, FL, Home of the Nations oldest city (just south of Jacksonville, FL).
    I am a firefighter/paramedic. I started using the scrollsaw (when I was told by my doctor I needed a hobby) for intarsia and have created several pieces, most of my own design. I'm still trying to develop my techniques and skills. Well I guess that's all for now.

    Welcome Linda.


    I'm a beginning scroller too--but have some experience carving! The people on this board have been very helpful (and understanding) of my transition between carving and scrolling!

    glad to be here

    Hi all,

    My name is Linda. I got my scroll saw a delta 20' in 1993. I bought it because I wood carve. I then went to work outside the home at a local theme park where I learned even better how to use the saw. I never expected to love using the scroll saw, but I did. Now I seem to be getting back into wood carving and scrollsawing and loving it. I am glad to have found this site and see that there are many others that share my love of wood.

    Linda

    New to scroll sawing

    Hello everyone,
    I am new to scroll sawing, been doing it for about a month now. I love fret work, it gives me the detail like cross stitching does. I posted my second piece in the galleries titled "Indian Warrior". Let me know what you think. My wife and I both love wood working. I also do photography and she makes quilts and sews for the grandkids. I am looking for instructions on doing some scroll saw portraits (how to create my own patterns). Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Howdy Folks!

    Just wanted to introduce myself as I am a complete newbie to the site and hobby. My name is Ron Wilson and I live in Olive Branch, MS. I am 31 and work as a technology consultant in software sales. My job causes me more stress than I care to discuss and I needed some nice hobby that will chill me out! I am into RC cars and a friend I met through the net kinda got me interested in pursuing scrolling. He said FUN, he said RELAXING, in other words he said the right stuff and I promptly went to Home Depot and bought a brand new Dremel Scroll Station. Well, after I accused him of lying through his teeth I realized that perhaps I just did not buy a very good saw. I took it back and started researching decent tools. I ended up buying an older RBI 220-3 from a classified ad on the net. Well, I have since apologized to my buddy and got a well deserved chewing out but we're both happier now! At any rate, I have just finished my first piece, a pretty little dove ornament out of walnut, and am very pleased with it, the saw, the hobby, everything! I still have some issues, one day at this - should I be suprised, and I am sure I will be pestering ya'll for information in the weeks to come. I am looking forward to the hobby and visiting this board in the future.

    Scroll on!

    Ron

I look forward to obtaining as much information from everyone, and also sharing anything I can add!

    Welcome aboard Cytop49. Good choice on the saw!, thats my opinion , I am sure many will offer different advice. It is a great beginners saw. I still use mine all the time after 8 years and a couple of rebuilds I don't think there is a project I would not try to make with that saw, as long as I had the wood!
    This is a great forum, don't hesitate to call on anyone here if you have a problem or need advice. Sometimes you may need to take the advice with a grain of salt But you cant go wrong with a hobby like scrolling.

    Hello,
    I joined the group last week, but thought I should stop in and say hi. Ive been scrolling off and on for several years now. I started out with a used 2 speed 16" delta but have since bought a dewalt 788. I belong to one other forum and will have to say between the two there is a ton of inspiration and knowledge.

    We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

    When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.
