  • Hello From Texas

    Hello,
    My name is Greg and I live in Houston, Texas.
    I have been Scroll Sawing for about four to five years now, and I'm still learning something new each time I cut a new project.
    I'm thinking about trying to do fret saw'en clocks, so I will be asking a lot of questons.
    Thanks ahead of time for any help that you all can give,

    Greg

    Welcome Greg--
    Always nice to have another Texan in the group. I think Texans and Canadians constitute a majority. I'm sure you will get plenty of good advice from this group. There is a lot of experience lurking about.

      Welcome Greg! Yes if one is not learning something with each project there would little reason to start a new one.

          Welcome Greg,
          There are at least several expert clock sawyers on this board - you will probably find that they have experienced just about every challenge there is in them, and conquered them. All you have to do to tap into that experience is to ask.
          Sandy
          PS. What sort of projects have you been doing for the last 5 years?

            Thank you all for the warm welcome,
            To answer Sandy’s question I have done Christmas Ornaments, Crosses, Name Plates, Angels, Personalized mini baseball bats, small desk clocks, welcome signs, and some Words of Faith plaques.
            I have a small 10’ X 12’ shed behind my house that I work out of. I will sometimes pull my DeWalt 788 Saw out under a tree to cut some projects when the weather gets too hot. I am waiting on a disk/belt sander that I have ordered to help me with my fret saw clock construction.
            Thanks again for the warm welcome, and I look forward to hearing from you all again.

                Welcome

                Welcome, Greg-

                This is the best forum for asking questions you will ever come across.

                I am a native Texan, I was born in Waco and lived in Ft. Worth for a long, long time. I am stuck in Florida with my job.

                If you need baldes try Flying Duchman at www.mikesworkshop.com/ . Mike will do you right.

                My saw is a DeWalt788 Measure twice; cut once; count fingers after cut

                  Thanks

                  Thanks,
                  Bill and Bill. With all of the people in Texas that Scroll Saw we should have our own Picnic.
                  I lived in Waco back in the early 70's and still have kin there.
                  Hope to talk with you guys again, and thanks for the welcome.
                  Greg

                  P.s. I been using Mick's FD baldes for some time now, and they are great.

                      Hello neighbor

                      Greg, drop me an email. I live in Sugar Land and would like to talk with you. Do you belong to WWCH? I also have a DeWalt and love it. I'd also like to chat with you about the FD blades as I have used them and always go back to my Olsons.

                          The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                          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...

                          by tgiro01
                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                          Now,...

                          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
