  • Good morning from chilliwack BC

    Just picked up a genral saw yesterday. I have never used one before but from what I have seen that you can make with these style of saws I had to get one. Spent a bit of time cutting scrap wood last night just trying to follow a line. it was a bit harder than I thought. But I plan on getting better and enjoying this tool for years to come.

      Hello and welcome
      Yes you can do a wide variety of projects with a scrollsaw. Once you have figured out how to handle the saw, cut some small, simple projects. You will improve fast. I look forward to seeing your woodwork. I think Canadian Scroller is from Chillawack. You will find many different ways of doing things and patterns, find what is right for you, and have fun scrolling.

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

            I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

            First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
