    Hello Karen and Gary
    Picking a saw that meets your needs is like getting a pair of shoes that fit. You won't regret the time spent to get the right one. If you want to do any amount of fretwork, we feel that a top-threading saw is imperative. What type of clocks are you interested in making? We have made some larger ones, and will help if you have a question.
    Welcome and good luck
    Norman and Rose

    Welcome Karen & Gary. Hope you find all that you need here on the forum. It's a fun hobby & I'm sure you will learn a great deal about scrolling here. I would suggest reading as much as you can here on the forum & books too. The Scrollsaw woodworking & Crafts magazine is very helpful too. Like I said, read all that you can & learn. Sounds like you already have a particular area to scroll in. Don't be afraid to spend all that you can on a saw, because it will make a difference on how much you like scrolling. Be sure to use quality blades too. Mikesworkshop.com has the Flying Dutchman blades. He can help you with them too. Good luck & enjoy.

    started a topic Hi All!

    Hi All!

    I'm totally new to this but I've always had a fascination for saws. My hubby and I were looking for a new hobby and it evolved from model ships to making fretwork and clocks music boxes bird feeders and boxes. I'm sure we will try lots of things lol. I'm trying to make a decision on which saw to buy. I posted under beginners stuff but it hasn't shown up on there yet. hope it does soon cuz I'm anxious to get started lol.

    We are from Northeastern MI and we are 60 and 68 yrs old so we have plenty of spare time to learn. E1 is so friendly here!
    Karen and Gary

    I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

    Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
