  • New to the groups

    Hi all,

    I am new to the groups here, just stumbled (google) across them the other day when I could not find the site I used to order by blades from (Flying Dutchman of course). Definitly one of the most comprehensive groups I have found on Scroll Sawing in general, I look forward to reading more as time permits.

    I have been scrolling for 4.5 to 5 years. Mostly just silhouette's some with a lot of frett work and other without much. I have started making my own patterns for some basic stuff but I still mostly work out of books or some from sites like Shadez has up (not great at his patterns yet).

    I have just started selling my work recently in an attempt to allow my wife to be a stay at home mom.

    Well back to my day job, got a product about to roll out the door and some QA work that needs to be finished.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

            It is so cute (Christmas deer)
            by alexscrollsaw
            "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.
