    Hello to all the members here. I am Fretnot. I am new to scroll sawing so still have a lot of learning to do. I have a pre used DeWalt 788 and will shortly be getting an Excalibur 21. I have really got the scroll saw bug bad and just setting up a separate workshop just for scroll sawing. I also do wood turning and everything I make I sell to craft centres and also sell at craft fairs. So far it is going very well. I am keen to learn all about intarsia but will wait until I have some experience under my belt as it looks hard and complicated. I hope so show some pieces on here soon.

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
