  • Love making dust!!

    Hey all. New to the forum, been scrolling for about a year now. Loving every minute of it. If there isn't a pile of dust on my shops (if you can call an 8'x8' shed a shop) floor I'm not happy. So naturally after I clean the shop, I have to make another pile! I'm mostly doing fretwork right now, I've done a few portraits, and I'm planning to give intarsia a shot pretty soon here. As my name says, I love to tinker. Over the last many years I have tinkered with any different things, and last year I decided I wanted to give scrolling a shot. When I got a scroll saw for Christmas last year, I knew I finally found it. That thing that I love to do and can see myself doing for many years to come. I love being able to take a board and turn it into a piece of art. Anyway, that's me in a nutshell. Thanks to all for making this forum what it is!
    Here's a couple pics of my work.

        Thanks. I've used the saw almost daily since I got it and I'm surprised I haven't worn it out yet. It's a 16" skill and I really don't like it cause it's a complete piece of crap. I had to replace the tensioning rod a week after I got it, and I've managed to get it tuned in so there's very little blade wobble, and I've made a zero point clearance insert so It's doing pretty good for me. I just keep replacing the blade holder screws and cutting down the T handle allen wrench when it rounds off and trying not to let that stop me. I think I've cut at least 2 inches off it 1/8 of an inch at a time. I'm looking at upgrading to an Excalibur hopefully come tax time next year. Probably the EX 16. Maybe the 21. Not sure yet.

                    I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots. At this rate, I figure I will be doing good if I get sometime this summer. Glad hubby got his, figure he was my biggest...

                    Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
