    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 millwab
              I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...

              Skimming through this post, I came across 1 response to Quartz and one to Bill Wilson as PMs from Kelly, a new editorial assistant, regarding our comments. Here is my 2 cents regarding the copying. To understand what we mean, please take the issue with the sword fish on the front and copy that on a...

              I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index)....

              It really isn’t that bright when you see them. I want to paint the rose and vine and leaves but he’s skeptical since I always say I hate to paint. I can actually paint just don’t like to that much. I think a dark red at the center of the rose graduating to a lighter shade on the outer edges and...
