  • Hello from near Utica NY

    Hi, My name is Mike. I bought a Dremel 1680 off craigslist today for $50. I know they've been discontinued but, I wanted to get in to this as cheaply as I could. It's in pretty good shape and the guy that owned it used it right up until yesterday. He replaced it with a Hitachi that has a more powerful motor. I've never used a scroll saw and the projects that I'm interested in are wooden gear clocks. I hope I have the patience and skill to make them. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Most forums that I'm on I at least know something about what's being discussed. This is totally uncharted territory.

    I'm looking forward to an enjoyable hobby and new friends

          In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

          Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

          The outside
          of the extension is almost finished apart...
