  • New Kid in Town

    Hello,
    New around here. Never have used a scroll saw before but have wanted one and a couple of weeks ago I found a Craftsman Scroll Saw at a yard sale for $15 and figured I would buy it and see if I like the hobby. I googled Georgia Bulldog scroll saw patterns and thats how I found this board.
    Looks interesting so far and I hope I enjoy the hobby, y'all sure seem to. Take care. Mark

          Welcome Mark. Hope you enjoy your new hobby. Don't make any hasty decisions on whether you like scrolling or not. Just play with it & find out as you go along. If you have problems with your saw, etc. just ask questions & go from there. Make sure you use a quality blade, because it will make it more fun & easier to cut your projects. Like I said, just take it slow & easy & learn as you go. Happy to have you here. Let us see how you are doing, when you get comfortable with scrolling. Good Luck

              Thanks everyone, y'all know how to make someone feel welcome. Haven't tried to make anything yet, just been taking a few pieces of scrap and cutting curves and circles and stuff trying to get to know the saw. I look forward to giving it a try. Gonna try something VERY simple first. Take care.

                        Welcome Mark. You will love scrolling. Just have patience with it, learning can be frustrating at times. I became so upset with it a few times I was ready to give it up. However I have been doing it for over 25 years now and have 4 saws. Two RBI Hawks and two Scrollmate 14" from Bushton Mfg. Both are very good saws and have little vibration. Let us know how your practicing is going. And remember, it will come with experience and practice.

                            So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                            I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
                            In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.

                            Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                            Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
