                      Hi Chuck,

                      Welcome to our little corner of the net.

                      You will find plenty of people here willing to give you advice, and some will be about questions you actually ask

                      We like to digress, I mean discuss on a lot of subjects, including our common passion: scrolling and it's related activities.

                      There are a few here that make their portrait patterns and they may be able to help you along in your quest. Just ask away. Let us know what software you have, do not be ashamed to post pictures of what you are able to do already, by seeing it, we have a better understanding of your needs.

                      We are a fun group, we like to share knowledge and we like to rib each others in a respectful manner. We believe that the only dumb question is the one not asked.

                      Take a few hours to read the older posts, you will find a ton of information in them. I suggest you also take a few minutes to read the Bill of rights, it gives the very few rules we have in here.

                      And the important question: What saw do you have?

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

                      NOTE: No trees were killed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

                          Welcome to the group Chuck I've only been here a couple of months but let me tell you you have found the most wonderful group of sawdust makers on the net ! I'm still pretty new at the scrolling thing too. As others have away with your questions, there are a lot of " sharp blades" here !
                          ...enjoy !

                            First, let me say those are beautiful! Second, I can tell you that on the Facebook laser forums those people have been hunting for sources on cutting and charcuterie boards to laser engrave various personalizations onto. Some are willing to pay for quality and the finished pieces show it. Others...

                            A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

                            If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
