  • New Scroller

    Hello all I am Mark from Ohio. Very new to using a scroll saw. I have only had a saw for about 8 weeks. Everything I have attemped so far is very basic to what I see some of you do. I am amazed at some of the great works of art that some of you make. I will never be able to do that. I have learned alot the last few weeks reading on this site. I have attemped to make a few things for the Grandkids for Christmas but nothing like everyone here makes. Thanks alot for all the information I have learn so far and hope to lean more.

    Welcome aboard, I too am fairly new only been on here a couple of weeks. You are so right some of these projects done by the experienced scrollers are beautiful, only hope I can get that good one day. Only takes a lot of practice I am told.

      Welcome to the forum. You are going to amaze yourself with the projects you turn out. All you have to do is jump right in and try. Practice is the answer. Good thing practicing is so much fun with these saws.

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              Now,...
