  • New To Scrolling

    Hello, I am brand new to scrolling, I just got a Delta 20" saw and an intro pack of Flying Dutchman blades. #1,#3,#5,#7,#9 & #12. I think that should get me started.

                      I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them.

                      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                      The bags seem easier on the surface.
                      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
