    Hi Everyone,

    Just want to say I just started my dream of cutting out wood. If there any tips or help on finding some free cool patterns to learn on that would be great. I would really love to do some sports cut outs. My kids are all involved in them and they would love to have some in their rooms.
    If anyone can help???

        Welcome Misty. There are heaps of free patterns online, and dont forget the ones that arent free, the few dollars spent on a pattern are worth it when you see the appreciation someone gets from seeing the art youve created, and it helps keep the designers and the companies that do so much for our hobby in business.Links to many pattern locations are all over throughout this great site. If you dont find enough by browsing the messages here, try the link to "other great sites" on the left side of the screen. Good luck, and happy scrollsawing. dale

          My favorite source of "free" patterns is the scrollsaw magazines. I figure I get to read the magazine, and the patterns are free! Scroll Saw Workshop is the best one, but look around and you will find another (unmentionable here) that is not as good, but still has a lot of patterns. I find that I try some patterns I never thought I would even like, just because they are there. And. if I like them enough, I can buy patterns/books from that pattern maker.
          Hope this helps.
          Be sure to let us know how you are doing - and be prepared to have a lot of fun (or phun). (Sorry, Carter)

            I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

            Just Wondering...

            Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

            With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

            I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

            Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

            I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

            If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
