  • Hello Folks

    I am 61 yrs old getting ready to retire. I am a field service engineer for a medical equipment company and use tools every day.
    I do not own a scroll saw, router, table saw nothing. I am here as a true newby and need all th help I can get. I am starting on a new hobby/career in the field of wood working, it seems thrilling to me and am set in learning this trade. Any help will be appreciated.

      Welcome to the forum gatorfan! I'm Dan from Southern California. My wife is a Gator. I guess that makes me Gator bait.
      Lots of people here willing to help with any questions you might have.

        Welcome Gatorfan. Scrolling is a very rewarding hobby or craft. For me it is similar to therapy. I relax and get my thoughts together while cutting. You seem to forget any problems or troubles while working on projects. Welcome sir, ask questions, post pictures, and enjoy.

          Hi, Gatorfan and welcome. Are you in Florida and if so, where? You're going to have a lot of fun starting with shopping for tools you'll use happily for a long time to turning out projects that will not only please you but your friends and family as well. When you run out of people to give stuff to, you, like the rest of us will probably turn to selling your products in craft shows.

          The big message, is Have Fun!

            dgman!
            At least your wife has good taste Gator bait probably but you need to ask her if this is true. I never try to over rule wives.

            Jan,
            I see you are in SW Florida that covers a lot of territory. I will guess the Naples area. Yes I am shopping as we speak. Need a Dewalt 788 scroll saw (this is my wish list) got the drill press. Looking for a sander, airbrush, table saw, place to buy wood, tools etc. I could go on and on.

            Any way thanks for the greetings.

                Welcome. Watch Craigslist. You might be able to steal a used Dewalt.

                  He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                  Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                  It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
