  • 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'.

            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.

                  I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                  Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                  And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                  Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                  I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
