  • Hi From NW Montana!

    Hi from NW Montana! My name is Tim and I have been scrolling for about 1 1/2 years. I have a Makita SJ401 16" scroll saw. I have my own hardwood flooring business and done flooring for 23 years. Started using my scroll saw more since having back surgery in July (blew out L5 & S1). Found this site after ordering a few back issues to complete my set of SSW. Love the magazine! Right now I'm making some dog puzzles and working on a couple of rocking horses for nieces and nephews. Always collecting eagle patterns. I look forward to learning more through this group also. Have to go final coat a floor. Back soon!

    Welcome aboard!
    Hmmm scrolling and hardwood floors, consider the possibilities. Inlays and other ways of coping
    I have thought of using the scrollsaw to do inlayed boarders in laminate flooring before, but as usual there is never enough time to pursue these ideas.

      Welcome Tim

      Welcome to the forum.

      I look forward to seeing some of the projects you are working on in the scroller galleries and of course, 101 ways to use flooring in scroll sawing!

        Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have one source of wood perfected already - those off-cuts could keep you in puzzles and intarsia for a long time!
        Be sure to tell us what you're doing, we'll all love to hear about it (and maybe some pics, too!)

          I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

          I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
          Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

          One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

          I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

          Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

          If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
