    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 checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

              Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

              He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

              We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
