    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,

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

              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.
