  • Another New Scroller

    Hi all! My name is Tammy and my dad recently gave me his scroll saw--a Ryobi SC-160, as he has muscular issues and can no longer use it. I'm completely new to scrolling, but, at 48, I'm very excited and anxious to really get into using it. I'm sure I'll be looking at this forum a lot for quite awhile!

        Welcome to the family Tammy. It does not matter what age you start at. It is very addicting once you get started. Take photos of your work and please share with us. Keep a couple of your first cuttings and compare them to what you are cutting in a few months. Again Welcome. Steve

          They may be the FD puzzle blades. I have also used the Pegas 2/0 28 TPI blade. It has NO reverse teeth.

          Depending on the size of the holes, it could be a candle holder, or something to hold round stock vertical while painting/staining it, or just something to puzzle you.

          I kind of like the last one, I may use that

          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....
