  • Hi folks

    I am another newbie, just joined yesterday. I have been buying anything I can to read about scroll sawing for the past two years. I bought a Hitachi CW40 scroll saw 1 1/2 years ago, but I had to let it sit for awhile to take care of a family member. I have now used my saw several times and really enjoy it. I plan on learning to make toys for my grandkids and christmas ornaments to start with.

    Welcome Don - what a good way to start your New Year - join a good group of people! Toys for the grandkids is an excellent way to practice - they're not at all critical of the level of your talent so you can make actual, useful stuff right away. Same thing with Christmas ornaments. We'd love to see whatever you create along the way, so be sure to upload photos. As you have probably already seen, you'll find a WORLD of helpful information here -- and the people can't be beat!

          My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

          Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
