  • New to the message Board.

    Just wanted to introduce myself, I am new to the message board, not too new to scrolling (1 1/2 to 2 years now). My main interests are Intarsia and wood items with moving parts, such as wooden padlocks. I uploaded a bunch of my previous works that can be viewed in the member galleries under "MetalEd". The intarsia are all original, made from patterns I drew on using the computer.
    My profile is: Father of a 13yr old scroller who is also experimenting in pattern design. Living in Encino, Calif., currently using a Craftsman 21 and 16 inch scrollsaw. Wish I had won that purple monster in the pattern contest, but it was not me either
    Take care all! Ed - Aka MetalEd

        Hi Ed, welcome to the message boards!

        I'm a few days older than you on this site, but much newer than you to scrolling! I got my saw just before Christmas and dived into making some Christmas presents. It's a lot of fun but I'm still doing pretty simple things.

        Your work is truly admirable; like Toni, my favourite one is the intarsia guitar player. Your Easter Cross is lovely as well. They're all really good; the locks are fascinating!

        Welcome again, and hope to see more of your work in the galleries!

        Ann

              Wooden locks

              The locks really do work, they are from Tim Detweiler's books, one which is titled, "making working wooden locks". Since they don't use any metal, you have to use wood that will bend, keep it's shape and not wear out or break. I found a solution for this that is more than excellent! Anyone curious and going to make them, e-mail me and I will let you know my trick.
              As for the intarsia patterns, My son wanted to make some cartoonish type characters, looking around for patterns you find that most are of animals or buildings/landscapes. I think this is because it is hard to do people in wood, but then again I am doing cartoon types
              I want to do a few more, but since my shop is on my back patio and it is so cold... I have to wait.. but it gives me more time to draw patterns. I want to touch up the patterns and make the instruction more proffesional, finish with copyrights and all and then I may offer them to the public. So keep an eye out for the guitarist!!...
              Take care all, thanks for the welcome!

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
