  • 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.

                  Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                  Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                  Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                  Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
