    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.

    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.
    Norm

    Any variations from the pattern toward the scrap side do not count as mistakes. AND, other cuts off the pattern are artistic interpretations! Seriously, once you remove the pattern, only you know where it was not on the lines (unless you're doing lettering).
    Second, take a couple of sets of needle...

    Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

    What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

    And now for the questions
    by old fa_t
    I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....
