  • Hello from an Italian permanently living in UK

    Hello you all! ^_^

    My name is Anna, in art Dru and moving in the UK has bloomed in me the passion of recycle the scrap wood, the industrial off-cuts making out of it pieces of art.
    I have started using a scroll saw that was accepting only the pin and blades, moving to a low level machine for plain end blades and ending a pair of days ago with my "Ferrari", my Excalibur Ex-30.
    The funny thing is that we (me and my love) bought the new jewel to fit the workshop that is waiting to be made out of the garage of the home that we are buying but that is still pending because of the time required for that operation.
    So my precious is waiting in the rented house to be moved soon.
    You know, the price of the machine are raising and one shop is still keeping the price unmodified from the past year (but I don't know for how long...) and for this reason I had to buy it ^_^'

    And here I am, excited and a bit frustrated for the situation...

    I am already an appreciator of the magazine related to this site and I hope to find here new friends and support.

      I feel VERY sorry for you, having to wait before you can start playing with your new toy! You have a very good idea, to recycle scrap wood! I hope you are able to move into your new house and get your workshop set up very soon! And I hope you will upload some photographs of your creations, as well.

        Hello wood-n-things,

        thank you for the link and advices.

        Hi PatteM,

        I'm very appreciating your empathy; The impatience is killing me... in the meanwhile I'm making my research about a good dust extractor and air filter. The workshop will be small and I'm finding very difficult to spot something that will not occupy an important zone of it.
        Do you have any suggestion about the dusty problem?

        Ah! Thank you to show me interest for my artworks; You'll be able to see some photos of them here:
        Art -

        And I would be happy to see yours too. Do you have a place where you have uploaded them?

          Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great.

          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
