  • Hello to all members

    I am new to scroll saw wood working and wood working message board also typing which I am not good at. I am retired for 12 years now and am starting a new hobby in scroll saw wood working. I live in the upper peninsula of Michigan and have sense my seperation from the military. My first love is motorcycle riding my wife and I have riden and camped every state in the continental USA and had some great times doing it,but were I live that is not a winter time sport so on to something inside out of the snow. I am not sure I know My way around this system so hopefully this will get out there.

    Welcome Wes... I too enjoy riding, Alaska isn't the best place for year round riding either, but I sure do take advantage of the time I get to ride, I'm over 800 miles already this season, and we still have snow! I'll tell you the best thing I've seen - this is no joke - I saw a guy on his motorcycle with a snow board strapped on the back - now that's dedication. Anyway scrolling has made the winters a bit more bearable the past few years, been here the last 27 years and the winters just keep getting longer and longer.

    Hope you enjoy the scroll saw - be sure to post pictures!

            Hi ibber - LOL!

            I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

            Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

            I did a...

            Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
            My dream was to buy a TIG so that...
