    Hello everyone,
    My name is Kathie and I live in rural Nevada - yes, most of it is rural, but Gardnerville seems more so. Either way, I have been scrolling for about 5 years off and on. With school and a family, my time seems to be crunched. I have recently gotten back into it and am enjoying myself once again. I really enjoy your site and reading all of the advice. I use a DeWalt 788.
    Nice to meet you all,

                Kathie, welcome aboard. I think we are all addicts of the scrollsaw here. So jump in and show your work, ask your questions. Oh and probably teach some of us a thing or two. Steve

                  I was able to have a (relatively) peaceful weekend and had time to cut out two puzzles for a friend's children. One is completed and the other still needs the last coat of paint. I took the patterns out of the Scroll Saw Puzzles book and had a lot of fun with them. My first puzzle cut was the wizard in SSW&C, so these two added to my experience. I had a lot of fun and will post pics as soon as this last one is done. Thanks for the encouragement!!

                    I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                    I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                    They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                    The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
