    Ok, I don't actually use a scroll saw yet, I use a dremel, and I don't use wood I use deer and elk antlers. I would like to try the scroll saw I love power tools. I am currently dremeling eagle heads to use for knife hilts, I saw quite a few of these when I went to Sturgis this year and some were really awesome,

    Welcome to the site and forum. Good luck on finding your scroll saw. Try some out if possible to see which model or make you like best, or can afford. There are differences in them and also price ranges. Good luck and welcome.

        kdolphin, I am working on a Moose Antler right now & it is time consuming. I use a Dremel rotary tool too. I tried cutting some of the larger area's around a Moose head with the scrollsaw, but, it is curved too much to lay flat on the saw table. I had to drill holes & do a sort of dot-to-dot pattern, so I could turn it over on the flatter side to cut the area's out. I have a question about what to use, to polish the finished antler when I am done with it? Do you have a procedure for that? Sounds like you are all ready to jump into scrolling. It's fun, so read all of the info you can & when you get a saw, practice on some scrap wood. Good Luck.

            I am looking to buy a new scrollsaw, I left mine in Texas with a friend that does the same stuff that I do, so it went to a good home. As far as polishing goes, I have been using the polishing cream that came with my dremel. It works pretty well, My husband does a lot of body work so we are going to try out some different polishes, will let you know which works best.

              I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

              This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

              Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
