    Just stay with it and keep your head high - you'll get it done .For when I started I had no idea that it would become my main hobby either . I was and have made alot of bigger items until I finally started making the small crafts and them the whole thing blew up for me ............Good luck ............MB

            Just think...if you would have started using that saw in 2006 when she REALLY wanted you to make her something with it, you wouldnt be rushing now to get this piece done!! I can say though, I am guilty too of getting a new tool and then things come up and I never get around to taking it out of the box ( my Guinivere sanding system is just one example), so I know where your coming from there.
            And heres one to mention to your wife... Dale wants a new Jet mini lathe since you mentioned "The wife loves tools. I have to be careful about my comments to her concerning tools, or the next Birthday/Christmas/etc..... There it is. " Mybe she will buy me some new tools!!!
            Welcome aboard !

My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

              I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

              IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
