  • Hello All

    Hi all, my name is Jim and I'm a scroller and a woodturner and have been for close to 25 years except for a a few years when I an addict. After getting clean and small prison sentence I went back to what I knew which was scrolling and turning, it's what keeps me clean and sober now. I use a Porter Cable PCB370SS which is far from the best but it does what I need it to and I also use my old trusty 16" Craftsman Direct Drive. It'll always have a place in my shop because it was my grandfather's.
    It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

    It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

    Jim

          Greetings western.flyer. Speaking of Porter Cable... a family member gave me a Porter Cable router that was model M100... when I turned it on it made a horible sound that still haunts me. =)

          Welcome and glad to have you aboard... I am just learning the scroll saw myself but I am loving it so far.

            Linda,
            Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

            There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

            Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

            In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
