    G'day all my name is Mark I have always wanted to get into Scroll Sawing but for what ever reason hadn't got around to getting a saw, so the other while my mum was getting scrap book items from a factory in Melbourne I noticed a Hawk Saw 220vs (Ultra) was there still it was there the last two times we went to said factory.. so this time I asked if the saw was for sale and guy said make an Offer so I had $100 on me and he took it ,after he was amazed I got it into the back of my Hyundai excel (I took the legs off it). it came with 160+ Univ # 3 blades ...about 36 Univ #7 and 24 Uinv #12 blades ... so the costs of the blades alone would probably be more then the $100.. so far i have done two projects .. one is a Giraffes head (sadly I used a wrong blade and the wood broke on the right ear ) .. and today I did that Diggers pattern that John B upped.. keep in mind i've only been doing this exciting new hobby since Tuesday 10th April (14th April as I type this ).. I also turn pens and make picture frames ...

    oops the wood I used both times is Huon Pine and about 8mm thick

    So thats about it from me for now look fwd to making some great friends on these boards
