      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,

              Sorry if this is the wrong placefor this post. I just tried to look at The Scrollsaw Artist site and I got a message that the site may be corrupted and I should not attempt to enter it. Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks for any help.

              A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

              I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

              Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...
