  • Hello, my name is Universal Scroller and I am ... scrolling :-)

    Hello everyone,

    Two years ago I discovered scrollsaw with patterns I found on Internet and in the Scrollsaw Woodworking & Craft Magazine and our good fellow Steve Good. I had chance to find these magazines, some good Baltic Birch plywood, an excellent scrollsaw and fine blades.


    I started with one of my favourite actors, who comes from here in Belgium : Jean-Claude Van Damme himself.

    And he gave me the idea for my username on this forum : Universal Scroller J

    I am happy to join this forum !

                  Hello everybody,

                  thanks for the welcome and for my green site; I ike green :-)
                  I visited all your websites and galleries, and I am impressed with your works.

                  I like especially the sentence on Wood-n-things site :
                  "A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman;
                  but a man who works with his hands, his brain and his heart is an artist."-Louis Nizer

                  I like the inlay of Jim Sawyer and I would like to learn this technique, one day.
                  Greatpatterns, Oily :-)
                  and Keystonecop , you have surely a lot of patience to cut all these wonderfull fretwork, especially the texts in wood. Chapeau ! (in french = congratulations).

                  Has anyone of you an idea about my problem to upload a custom avatar ?

                    The folks at Fox Chapel, (the people who host this site), are having trouble with that, and are working on it. I have the same problem.

                        Thank you Jim, I wait until the problem for uploading a custom avatar is fixed. May be I take Sylvester for a while :-)

                        I'll follow the tutorial want inlay is said to be easy :-)
                        One big problem here in Belgium is to find fine boards of wood, ready to work (planed and sanded), in 1 cm thicknes (about 1/2 inch). I can sand little pieces with my little sander not longer than 12 cm x 5 cm. So for little inlay it would be enough, I guess.

                          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

                          I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...

                          Thanx Rolf. I also found a package of Olson 3/0 blades I had. They are 33TPI x .008T x .022W
                          I’m guessing that’s their equivalent of a puzzle blade since they don’t sell one specifically labeled as such....
