    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.

        Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

        I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

        Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

        Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

        Hi ibber - LOL!

        I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.
