  • Id be greatfull for any help

    Hi folks,
    Yet another newbi, I’ve just set 2 pictures on the boards I’ve been doing scroolsawing for 2 years now and making my own patterns. Please take a look at my pictures and feel free to criticise them I wont mind if they are harsh since the only way to learn is to be offered advice. I should say that the picture with the gentleman with the beard has to much varnish on it. I tried to use a new technique whereby I over sprayed the picture with varnish and left it there for a few moments the wiped the excess off then after it was dry I re varnished it, obviously it didn’t work, advice on how to create shadow using varnish would be helpful. Sorry this is a long intro. by the way I live in the UK Wales to be precise, so if there is any auk scrollers looking at this I would like to be in contact with you , so maybe we can set up a club. To my other potential friends in the scroll saw world a big hi and thanks for any help.

    Many thanks

    Steve or Taffy its up to you

    You've certainly got a lot of ability with the saw. Those pictures look very impressive, although it's difficult to pass a comment because the photographs are rather small.

    What saw do you use for your work, and what material are the portraits cut from?

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        Taffy, I am impressed with your work. I would like to know more about the one you call "Hard Work". The finish is really interesting and the portrait seems to come to life. What materials/finishes did you use? Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing more of your efforts and hearing your opinions.

            Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

            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....
