    Hello Everyone, Phestus Here!

    I am a 74 year old retiree and I am just getting into scrolling. I have been a woodturner for about 15 years and was looking for a change of pace. I think I have found it. I live in Colorado and since I don't ski I need something to help get me through the winter months. I look forward to reading all the posts and hopefully one of these days I'll be able to contribute to the forum.

    Many Thanks,

          Thanks for the welcome

          It is great to be a part of this forum. I plan to do some searches on past postings and I'm sure I will find enough good info to keep me busy for quite sometime. I own a Dremel 1671, Type 3 which I bought new a number of years ago, then just put it aside and got into turning in a big way. The 1671 has less than 10 hours cutting time on it. I plan to rectify that situation in the coming months. I really don't know what the difference is between the Type 1, 2, and 3, and between the 1671 and the 1672. I look forward to seeing what others are doing and I'm sure I'll draw some inspiration from that. Thanks again for letting me become a part of this group.

          Best Regards,

              by tgiro01
              With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

              I do remember that 2011 Wow, you were gutsy building that then, CNC was just coming into the home environment. Are you still using the one you built?

              I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

              I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

              But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

              +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

              It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
