    Hi all,

    I have only just found this site and WOW, what a lot of great info.

    I live in Lanzarote, Islas Canarias, wood is scarce, but who cares when it's always sunny....oops sorry to all who live in the cold.

    I have recently bought a cheap scroll/fret saw and am enjoying it a lot. I am mainly a woodturner, but class this skill as a relaxing art form, less need to watch for flying objects, so far anyway.

    I look forward to reading lots on this site and to join intoo.

      Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

      Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...
