  • 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.

                  Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...
