  • Hello From Milwaukee

    I’ve been lurking for a couple of weeks and thought it was about time I introduced myself. I’ve been scrolling for about 10 years since I received an inexpensive pin-end scroll saw as a gift. I upgraded to a pin-less saw about 5 years ago and have been mainly scrolling fretwork design patterns for friends and family.

    I recently decided to expand my woodworking tools arsenal with the purchase of a decent router table and router. I’m thinking that my first router project will be a router table cabinet … now I have to figure out where to incorporate the scrolling into the cabinet

    Looking forward to following the message threads …. Tom In Wisconsin

    Tom:

    Big Welcome. Hope you enjoy your vists here.

    BTW (and OT): Does Milwaukee still have Summer Fest down by Lake Michigan? Went to a few back in the 1970's and had a great time with the music and the HUGE amount of beer being served.

      And Phil, yes Summerfest is still going strong! Come on up sometime.I actually havent been to summerfest in about 10 years, I guess Im either too old for that, or to tight to pay for parking (or both). Dale

        Thanks for the welcome guys …

        Summer Fest in the 70’s …. brings back memories of younger days when I was in a band that played there.

        I still catch it occasionally, during the day, but it gets a little too crowded for me at night (sure sign of getting old).

        I’m looking forward to learning from the experts on this forum. I doubt that I’ll be able to offer much advice, but maybe someone can learn from all the mistakes I seem to make.

        Tom

              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.

              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.

              I chose one with really big blue illuminated...
