  • Hello anyone

    My name is Jim Palmer. I live in the middle of Washington State. My forte is Intarsia. I do a little bit of scrolling besides that, but I love that Inatrsia which I've been doing for 9 or 10 years. Anyone else doing Intarsia??

    Hello Jim--Welcome to wonderland. You have come to a great forum with lots and lots of talent and good advice/comraderie. Many of the members do intarsia along with just about everything else a scroll saw can do. I suggest you take a gander at the "Scroller Galleries" under "Scrolling Community" just to the left side of the page. Those albums will give you some idea of what is being done. There is an "Intarsia" category to click on when you get to the galleries. Once again, glad to have you aboard.

      Hi Jim.. I'm also from Washington state, but I'm from Kalama, about 40 miles north of Portland. This is a great site with very experienced folks (not me) who will answer any and all questions. Welcome aboard

          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.

          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
