    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.

    Welcome, Kenny!
    I hope you'll feel comfortable enough to contribute more than lurk.
    We're a pretty supportive family.

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
