    Hi, I began scroll sawing a few months ago. I have completed the "Scroll Saw Workbook" by John A. Nelson. What a wonderful book for beginners. I am now ready to begin more challenging projects. The "Scroll Saw Workshop" magazines are really great. I have all except 4, 9,and 15. Hopefully I will be able to find these soon.
    I have been teaching pre-k for 14 years. I have been collecting calendars with plans to make puzzles for my classroom. I am in hopes that the experienced scrollers from this message forum will be able to help. I need to know the process to take with these puzzles (from beginning to the end). The pattern/process that I have seen says nothing about using non-toxic materials. I want to make sure I do the right thing to make these puzzles last for years to come. Also,where can I buy these supplies if they are available?
    p.s. I would like to start a collection of my own puzzles, any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you,

      Scroller from KY

      Hi Sonja,I too live in Ky(Louisville). I just joined this forum today. I was educated as a math teacher,but worked in indutry until retirement. Congrats on getting into scroll sawing,its the only tool safe enough to get your fingers close to the blade and still retain them. I have a vs Hegner,piddle mostly, but do make a few desk name plates. I joined this forum mostly to hunt for an old Powermatic,delta,or atlas 24"jig saw. I saw you're from KY,just had to respond. Good scrolling,PW.

          The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)...

          I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

          Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

          Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

          I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.
