    Greetings from India
    I am recently retired person after working 32 years in the Persian gulf.
    I have simply fallen head over heals in this new found hobby of scrolling,done a lot of research and visited many websites to collect valuable information and in some cases I got tremendous encouragement from the famous artist and here I wish to mention one particular ,very good person Mr Steve Good.
    My PROXXON saw is on it's way from Germany and it looks like I have done my homework,God willing it will be a good start,seeking your help and guidance in making my hobby a success !
    Thank you for accepting me in your forum.
    God bless !

          Thanks!

          Thanks for welcoming me to this forum . The small tour which i have taken in the Q&A section did help me in some of the questions I had in my mind,I have a great feeling inside me that I am going to have a long friendship with all you gentlemen and someday become a good at this art form.
          In my part of the world this hobby is unheard of so the resources are limited as DIY trend is yet to hit our shores.
          I will succeed in this art! come what may!
          God bless

                Welcome from another beginner!

                My father is a master woodworker and taught it in schools for 32 years. I have taken the hobby up later in my life. My Dad came for a visit this past Christmas and was very polite in looking over my meager endeavors.

                He gave me one of the best pieces of advice when it comes to wood working - whether it is lathe turnings, scrolling, or making furniture. He said: "Make the project so you're happy with it. It makes no difference if someone else likes it or approves of it. If you're happy with how it turned out, then it's a masterpiece".

                I offer this advice to you from one beginner to another because I look at what others do and wonder if I can ever make something even close to their level of complexity or art quality. But then I remember what my Dad said and smile knowing my work, however meager, still looks pretty darn good to me!
                "Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday." John Wayne.

                    Thanks! SOMartin

                    Waiting very eagerly for the scroll saw to arrive and i am sure after a months of sincere practice I will be able to attempt a easy project and will always remember the advice given to you by your Dad.
                    I will surely post the photo for our well experienced artists on this forum for comments.
                    God bless!

                      The saw has arrived and was a bit surprised to notice the table looks a bit small,maybe a little modification is required with a laminated ply to slightly extend it.
                      The practice of straight lines,V cuts,wave and loops is on,there was a major confusion with the blades as it did not match the type and the numbers which I usually saw while visiting various websites. Thanks to Mike after I visited his website I learned a few tips about the blades .the blades which I ordered along with the saw have no types(reverse tooth or skip tooth and so on).
                      I have started practicing with what I have and as I progress I will order for the beginners pack then proceed further.
                      Thought I should share this with you gentlemen :-)
                      Thanks!

                        The scrollsaw has come,started practicing on straight lines,curves,loops and the other shapes all was going well,till I tried to use the pin less blade . The blade started to slip from the clamps no matter how hard I tried,called the dealers technician even he was not successful!! Now the have registered a complaint with PROXXON Germany awaiting response! A bit of a disappointment there as I was all set to do some creative work! Well just thought that I shall share this and make my sadness a bit less:-)
                        Hopefully it should be sorted out quickly!
