  • Santa was good to me!

    Hi, folks,
    Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself.
    I'm Tom and I'm brand-new to scrolling. I just got a DeWalt DW788 for Xmas. I've wanted to try scrolling for a while now and all the hinting finally paid off.
    I also got a copy of Scroll Saw Workbook. I'm hoping to start the first "skill building" projects from that book tonight.
    Any advice for a complete novice would be appreciated.

      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

      Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

      Hi ibber - LOL!

      I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.
      ingers crossed
