    Hi, Folks!

    Well...not THAT old, but a newbie to scrolling, per se--just got hold of a Ryobi 16" compliments of my brother-in-law.

    Not a newbie to working with wood; I carved my share of fancy scrolls on gunstocks, etc. using a Paragrave tool. Even did some carving of emu and turkey eggs--very delicate. But I'm loving this new thing and it's very relaxing to me.

    I confess that I'll probably lurk more than contribute, but if I have something to say or ask, I won't be shy.

    We're a pretty supportive family.

          by tgiro01
          With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

          +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

          It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
