    Hello all
    I've recently bought a new Record variable speed 16"scroll saw after a considerable time without. I'm hoping to rekindle my enthusiasm in order to make small items for the grand children. Name plates etc. I'm wondering, does anyone have any opinions due to experience of this saw? I did cut a piece 3/4" thick on the kitchen bench (wife at work) without it being secured and found it cut quite nicely and sat smoothly. The blade in the machine also cut quite smoothly. All comment are welcome. Also are there any templates for nameplates to be recommended on any of the sites, preferably free.

    Hey Allejo, Welcome to the forum. You can go to www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com. That is Steve Good's site. He has a free program you can download to make name plates.

          Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

          Thanks Rolf,
          I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

          Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

          This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
