    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.

      Cool...
      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...

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

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

                I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots.

                Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
