  • Hello from Sandy in CS!

    Hi! I'm Sandy. I work in the Customer Service Dept. at Fox Chapel Publishing! I've been learning to scroll for about a year now. BobD has been very patient in answering all my newbie questions and helping me with the saw! (Thanks Bob! ) Some of my work is on the bragging page in the spring 2006 issue #22. I've posted the wolves shown on page 12 individually on the Scroller Gallery so you can see them up close and let me know how I did! I'm really enjoying using the saw. I'm looking forward to posting more soon!

    Sandy

      Welcome aboard Sandy, I was admiring your wolves before you even posted.
      That is a great idea using the wallpaper.
      I am glad you are no longer a lurker <grin>

      You are well on your way to being an accomplished scroller. Soon I am sure others will be coming to YOU for advice.

        Welcome

        Welcome to the forum Sandy. Love the wolves!!! You will like the folks here on the board. Everyone is friendly and more than willing to answer any questions you may have. Looks like about half of our active participants are also ladies so you should feel right at home. BTW I love your avatar!! I do mostly segmented portraits of animals, and I especially like the big cats, so that really appeals to me. You wouldn't have an 8x10 of that bad boy to share would you???
        If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

          Welcome Sandy, and GREAT JOB on the wolves. Bob, being an editor slipped up,he didnt catch that it was in the spring 2006 issue, not 2005, so now you get his raise when it comes due!!! We all knew which issue it was though.You done great, now I'll go check the gallery as well. Like Neal said, that white tiger avatar is pretty slick, it sure would make an awesome scrollsawing pattern!!! Good job, come in often, and dont be shy! Dale

            Thanks All!

            Thanks for the kind words on my wolves in the Scroller Gallery!
            The white tiger avatar picture is one of many white tiger images I had picked out to have airbrushed on my motocycle helmet... that was prior to selling the bike. I liked the images so I kept them.
            Dale- I fixed my blooper...haha. Yes, I did mean 2006, not 2005! Doh!

                Come on Dale...I've got enough work to do editing the magazines...I can't be expected to edit all the posts here too! I'd never get done even editing your posts <GRINNING FROM EAR TO EAR>.

                And I love the smell of double cheeseburgers, so that won't help Sandy at all <grin>

                    I'm still trying to get Shannon to show off some of her work <grin>

                    and our designer Jon is planning on making a model ship--that uses both a scroll saw and carving tools...so as soon as he gets that up and going, I'll pressure him to show off his work as well!

                      Sounds like a great place to work. Any plans on opening a Canadian branch

                        I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                        Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                        I did a...

                        Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                        My dream was to buy a TIG so that...

                        Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.
