    Hi all,

    Just joined , new to scroll sawing, my new machine was ordered last week and is on its way. I'm looking forward to this and hope to find it enjoyable. Never did much with wood, I'm an old machinist so I'm trying something new.

      This should be interesting...
      I think the first thing you'll notice is that wood is softer than metal...hehehe

      Be warned, a scroll saw is only as precise as your own hands...
      ...and once you get going, it's really addictive...

      Can't wait to see what you come up with...

        Welcome... I'm sure the fudge factor is a lot higher with wood than your used to. Be sure to post pictures.

            Welcome dlandis. Was wondering what saw you ordered. Hope you can find what you want in scrolling. We did. Like Jim say's, it's addictive. We look forward to seeing some of your work, & don't worry about being new, just enjoy yourself. Good Luck

              I ordered a Shop Fox w1713. I read an article rating different scroll saws and this one came highly recommended for the beginner.
