      Be careful once you get to the point where you attach the saw to the stand. You CAN over tighten the bolts. The steel for the legs just isn't that strong. Mine have bent but I caught it early enough so it isn't a real problem.

          Hi, Welcome, AND Congrats on a great deal you got on your Dremel! Sounds like you purchased the Scrollstation with the disc sander?

          I have the 1680 Dremel and really like it, though I don't have any experience with which to compare, except a Ryobi 16" I tried and took back because it vibrated so much. The 1680 as out of my budget, then I saw it at a store marked for only 110 -- when I asked if that was the correct price, the cashier said "Well it is for you because that's what it was marked!" Next time I saw it the price was $179. So now is the season for good finds on Dremels, it seems!

          Mine came with a stand. Most important thing for me was to assemble all forty billion nuts barely tight, mount the saw, shift the stand till I got everything level, leave the level on the saw table, and start tightening, keeping a good eye all the time, every bolt, on the level. If it went off a little, then I loosened the previous nut, shifted it back to perfect again, and tightened it up again. The stand definitely took a bit of patience!

          Welcome and all the best,

              I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

              I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

              First off how thick is the board you cut?
              When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
              that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
              for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

              I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

              Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

              Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
