  • Introducing Myself

    Hi, I'm helluvawreck. I am a woodworker and a beginning woodcarver (10 months). I have been a hobby woodworker for 40 years and am in the manufacturing business. We manufacture architectural moldings and other products. I am in the engineering and maintenance end of the business and we have a machine shop. I have also been a molder setup man and a molder knife grinder. I have also been in involved in general woodworking production for 40 years.

    After taking up woodcarving as a hobby I have also become interested in other woodworking crafts such as scroll sawing. I am also in the process of learning how to do folkart painting in order to be able how to decorate my woodworking projects with paint.

    I hang out a lot at Lumberjocks and have a blog there where you can see some of my woodcarving.

    I hope that I will learn a lot from this site about scroll sawing.

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

            Now,...

            It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

            Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
