  • Hello all I am new here

    I just came upon this sight while looking for a pattern on the net.
    I had an old boat anchor of a scrollsaw years ago.. it was frustrating
    Bought one this week and wanting to get back into it
    AFter I made out my sign on name I seen there was another Dale here.

    Some time in the future I am looking for a pattern of a covered wagon
    I have a fellow in my church that makes covered wagons from the ground up and thought I would make him a wall hanging of a covered wagon.

    but that is in the future
    I am from southern Missouri.. Just a Hick.
    I do have running water.. lol

    Are there many of you that use a peddle scrollsaw?
    I have another friend that used them I believe he has 8 of them.
    I have a wooden leg so that is out of the question for me..

    Oh no, another Missouri hillbilly. Ozarkhillbilly is also from Missouri. He is a very fine portait scroller, even if he does use spiral blades exclusively.

          Hi Dale,

          Welcome to the group.

          My best advice is take some time to read the old threads, there's a lot of good info in there.

          We are here to exchange ideas, share knowledge, talk about scrolling and life in general. We are a friendly group that is respectfull and we also like to rib each other in a friendly fashion.

          Hope to see some of your work soon. (we like pictures )


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

              Yep, here's another Dale to welcome you to this scrolling family. I'm only a month old myself and would agree that you can learn a great deal from these experienced members as well as to get lots of encouragement.

                  Ozarkhillbilly I live in Norwood, MO just west of Cabool and Mountian grove, mo
                  Small town of 552 people.

                  I would like to get a covered wagon pattern sometime. I have a fellow in my church that builds them from the ground up.. full size he cuts his own trees and cures them then make a full size wagon with top and all.
                  pretty neat fellow.

                    With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it.

                    I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                    I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                    But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                    +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                    It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
