  • Dipping my foot in the water...

    Hi, my name is Chris and I live in Logan, UT. I just joined this board in the hope that it is as good as the woodcarving one I belong to. The "old timers" there are great about helping the new guys (like me). I just bought my first scroll saw to help do roughouts for my carvings. But I also hope to do a few other things with it. I bought a real cheap one from Harbor Freight as my first, just to make sure I like using it at all. I've learned my lesson from having bought too many high end tools that end up just sitting.

    Hi Chris welcome to the group. The cheaper saws are okay to start with but sometimes they can lead to people quitting the hobby too. As long as you know the limits of the saw and don't push it to hard it should do the job.

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

            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.

            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...
