  • 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.

                    Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                    I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                    These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
