  • 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.

                  Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                  by Ennobee
                  My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                  Hi Jim.
                  glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                  Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                  Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
                  by jim_mex
                  I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
