  • New scroller from Michigan

    Hi everyone, new member here.

    I am not new to scrolling though.

    I do have some experience with the scroll saw. I have a RBI that is about 18 years old and still humming along.

    I have done some scroll work and intarsia through the years. It is a kind of hit and miss with me though.

    I get all worked up about a project or 2, finish them, then kind of forget about the scroll saw for a couple of years.

    I'm guessing I'm not the only one who does this.

    I have a specific project in mind and hoping someone here has some experience with it.

    I'll post it to the regular forum in a few days.

    Anyway...glad to be hear and ready to start some more scrollin'.

          Thanks for the welcome everyone.

          I'm from the metro Detroit area Theresa. I'm familer with the Roscommon area, West Branch, Lake St.Helen, Rifle River.

          I will post some pics of the projects I have completed in the last 20 years or so as soon as I can figure out how to do it. Some Intarsia, some toys etc.

            Welcome Ben. It's nice to know that I am not the only one who gets frustrated and puts the saw away for awhile. Got back into it to keep busy while while the construction is slow. Cant wait to see your work.

              Hi Bill

              Yeah, got the bug again. I'll probably go a couple of years then get bored again.

              Real familiar with Pinckney/Brighton area. My ex ..... was born and raised on West Crooked Lake. It was just called Big Crooked lake by the locals many years ago.

                I am actually on Highland lake here in Hell. Where are you in the metro area? Maybe we can get together and share some projects.

                  Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

                  I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                  Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
