        Welcome peterBA, would love to see your project. Not mandatory to post photos here, but sure appreciated. Did you know that the owners of this forum also publish a scrolling magazine? You can subscribe right from this site. Lots of ideas and information in the magazine. Just a suggestion for ya.

          Hi Peter - good to see another Brit in the group. We're in the minority here but we make ourselves felt!

          You've come to a great, homely forum with a very mixed bunch of scrollers at all different levels from complete newbies like yourself to superbly skilled masters in their hobby or profession. What you will find above all is plenty of help, advice, new ideas and if you join in the fun and games you'll meet a lot of really nice people worthy of being called friends.

          Spend a little time looking around the site and don't be afraid to post any questions however stupid or elementary you think they might be. Also, as has been mentioned, post photos of your work. We are not judgmental here. We really like to see all levels and kinds of scrolling work and for newbies especially this is a great way to get tips and advice on how to improve their work.

          Above everything else, have fun!

            Welcome Peter. I'm intrigued by your work and I've never come across Foamex before, can you paint it?

            A photo of your work would be great

            Also this site has a pattern vault Free Scroll Saw Pattern Vault - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Message Board which might give you some seeds for future projects.

            Good Luck
            Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

              Just Wondering...

              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

              If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

              Hi Linda, great find...I think.

              Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
