    See you all in the forums

        Welcome "a-board" Dave, sounds like you are hooked already. Great hobby to be sure.
        Come by often, so we can pick your brain too for tips and tricks.

          Hi Dave,
          Welcome to a great forum. For tips and tricks check this: History of Scrollsawing
          Check also Selecting a Blade and Q & A you might find some help.
          Have good tension, good speed and slow feed rate. Many blades have a burr on the right side and will cut to the right. You have to move the wood some degree to the right to stay on the line.
          If you like a sample just let me know.

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
