    My name is Clive. I am from Taumarunui, New Zealand. I have just started scrollsawing, although I have been working with wood for a lot of years. When I saw some of the fantastic creations the rest of you have been producing I knew I just had to have a go. I have enjoyed viewing this scrollsaw websit and found it to be really helpful, answering a lot of those beginner questions and getting some really useful hints and tricks. So thankyou for being so open and helpful.

    For those of you who do not know were Taumarunui is, it is located in the centre of the north Island of New Zealand, just west of Lake Taupo (trout fishing capital of NZ) and Just north of Mt Ruapehu. It is a great area for Tramping, kayaking, fishing and skiing. It is a traditional sheep and beef farming area given it is pritty hilly. The population of the town is about 2000 with another 1-2000 people on farms in the surounding area. We tend to be a friendly bunch of people so if anyone is passing this way feel free to drop by.

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
