  • introducing myself to scroll sawing Forum

    I'm relatively new to scroll sawing but I have been on the Fox Chapel sister Forum for woodcarving for several years.

    Last year I started scroll sawing with a 16" Rikon , but then exchanged that toy for a Delta, which is an entirely different caliber of power tool and finally gave me access to some degree of success at scroll sawing.

    I have been making small boxes based on the Fox Chapel book by Gary Mackay and using the new Delta scroll saw for working with my wood carving.

    I like the woodcarving Forum and learn a lot from it so I thought I would get involved with the Scroll Sawing Forum.

If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
