    Hello scroll sawyers. I plan to cut intricate patterns in sheet brass using a newly acquired Delta Q3. It's dead and won't even growl.

    I spent most of the day removing the electronic velocity control box and while I was at the task, learned much about the mechanics of the machine. I can appreciate why the machine is quiet and smooth running.

    As said, the EVC has an issue; I'm troubled that there doesn't readily seem to be a source for a replacement EVC circuit board. The motor is OK so I may have to resort to an after-market EVC.

        Cute Pattern.
        I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

        No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
