    Hello everyone from sunny Scotland (yes the sun does shine here sometimes )

    I've been browsing this fantastic website for a few months now and thought it was about time I registered and made a posting.

    I'm in the process of setting up my own space to spend many hours scrolling, I've been reading peoples opinions from blades to finishing all of which I've taken on board.

    Here's to more posting's and plenty of scrolling in between fishing, golf, family, DIY (not necessarily in this order of course).
    So many hobbies, so little time

    Hi Youngest Son,

    You need to put a first name in your signature

    Welcome to the group.

    I guess you know how it goes if you've been lurking for a few months, and I'll presume we aren't that bad a bunch since you decided to join anyways

    Have fun, show us some pictures of your setup, don't forget to keep the first piece you make (it's important) so that you can always refer to where you started from and see your progress; you'll be amazed in a short time period of how far you've come.

    DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

          I wont to welcome you to. Y- son. now we have more family to chat with.
          wont to here what you ahave been cutting, and learning. bet we could learn some things from you too. after all. we have all been there. and could always use a refresher on how we started. you can tell us what you did, and what you learned from it. and what you are doing next. I never get tired of begginers. becouse i guess i am still one my self.there is lots of ways to do things. and I don't think there is only one way, and sometimes the beggeners show us just that. so just jump right in there, and shar. no matter how silly you might think it is. it might be just what I needed to here. thanks for joining us.

              Welcome aboard. I actually joined this amazing group before I even owned a scroll saw. I had a lot of questions answered before I ever got into it. Actually, if it wasn't for this message board I probably would never have even bought a scroll saw. It's not too often you can find this level of support, and all for free.

              Let's see what you're made of.

                      Welcome, friend. I will enjoy learning the language of Scotland and hope you will enjoy learing the language of the new country. It will be fun to see how we all say the same thing differently.

                        Again Welcome Y- Son
                        What part of Scotland you live in? I have a brother that works for Conoco in Aberrdeen. Have fun in this new hobbie of yours. Come often and enjoy the people in here.

                          Thank you all for your kind welcome's.

                          I'm in between saw's at the minute, waiting for the right time (and money ) to invest in another, my first saw was damaged beyond repair when I moved house .

                          Hi Fretdust - I'm at the other end (south) of Scotland to your brother.

                            A modified Sue Mey pattern to fit 1" x 4" x 10" Hard Maple. Cut on the Pegas scroll saw using a Pegas #5 MGT blade. One side says "TEACH". Flip it over and the other side says "LEARN". After sanding, dipped in diluted Shellac, sanded again and another dipping. Comments...

                            I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                            I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

                            The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
