    Welcome A Board!! You will be hard pressed to find a friendlier or more knowledgeable group on the net re: woodworking. Share your knowledge and do not hesitate to ask questions. The only dumb question is the one that remains unasked.

    You may find the stickies at the top of this forum to be very helpful. Use the Link below.

    Message Board FAQ, Suggestions and Feedback - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Message Board.

    Take a few minutes to read through them. They are chock full of great information.

    Be sure and share pics of your projects. We thrive on pictures. You will find we are not a judgmental group.

    Whatever reason brought you to our forum we are pleased you found us.

    Take some time to read the bylaws of the forum. We do not allow open/direct selling on the forum.

    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.

    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.

    Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

    I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

    Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
