  • Hi to everyone

    I have just joined the forum and am looking forward to learning a lot from you experienced members.

    A little about me:
    First name is Joe
    I am a rookie at this. Just recently had some heart problems and am now retiring from IBM. I am looking forward to trying my hand at screoll sawing. Have seen several projects that I like very much.

    I am located in NE Ohio have purchased a Dewalt scroll saw. Took a class on one and liked the feel of it.

    I hope I don't bug you screollers with a lot of stupid questions, but I know I will have many as I progress through the learning stage.

                  I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                  John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
