      Thanks Mike, I'll be doing a lot of reading for the first while. It'll be another family of saw blades to get use to.

        Hello Glenn
        Welcome to this forum. We have found the people here helpful, and we have been inspired by the pictures posted.
        What type of scrolling are you interested in?

          Sorry for the delay in replying. My initial interest will be the scroll saw boxes, I'm currently doing band saw boxes and really want to try the scroll box phase first. But must get use to the scroll saw first with some test cutting. There's also a bunch of blades that I haven't inspected yet,

          As I mentioned, I need the mobile stand - that's done. Used an old bedside table that was headed for the dump.. Did a pretty good remodel and the scroll saw runs great with virtually no vibration.

          I'll post some pic's of my Bsaw boxes and the scroll saw mobile over the weekend. Seems my camera batteries have died (again). And I just purchased a 1" belt / 5" combo disk sander, so it'll need a home too.

              Hi Glenn - Welcome to the forum. Mike has already given you the official introduction. Just want to back up his guidelines by saying dive in, ask questions, post any tips you may feel will help other folks, and post pictures when you have those pesky batteries recharged.

              The member base on this forum ranges from raw novices to masters of scrolling in all its various forms and all help each other and share info and work. The more you participate the more you'll get out of the forum.

              Above everything else remember one important thing when scrolling. Have fun!

                Just Wondering...

                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
