    Hello everyone. I was searching for patterns and ran across this site. Have done wood working all my life and used to own a furniture repair business.
    Have always wanted to try scroll sawing. The Lowe's were moving their store and I got a Porter Cable saw for less than half price.
    I ordered 'Learning to Use Your Scroll Saw By Joanne Lockwood' Decided to start out the right way, not hit and miss.
    This looks like a great place for some wonderful information. I wish there was a scroll saw club in my area. Maybe have to start one if I fine others interested in the Reno, NV area.
    Thanks ahead of time for all the help I know I will receive from here.

    Welcome Norm to a great and helpful site.
    The book from Joanne Lockwood is a great book. You might also find some good tips on this site: New Page 4
    The 3 basic things for using a scroll saw are; good tension, good speed and do NOT push too hard into the blade or the blade will start cutting with a bevel. Most blades have a burr and this makes the blade cut to the right. To stay on the line move the wood some degree to the right.

        I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots.

        Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
