  • New here, just sayin hi!

    Hello everyone!
    Although I'm new here, I've been scrolling since about 1995, mostly in the form of traditional wooden jigsaw puzzles. Been kind of out of the game for the last 6 or 7 years though, but recently started getting the scroll saw magazine which got my interest flowing once again.
    My main saw is a 26" RBI Hawk, but I also have a small 16" Craftsman I keep tucked away in the house, for use during cold (or hot) weather since my shop is neither heated nor air conditioned.
    Now, if I can only figure out what I want my first puzzle to be, so I can see if I still "have it" or if I need to practice a while.

        Hey, thanks for the warm welcome!

        StephenD - I'm in Lebanon, Missouri. As soon as I figure out the editing features here I'll add it. Just now I tried editing my location and got an error message saying I entered an "invalid birthday". I guess all forums have their own flavors and glitches.

          Hey, rb, glad to have you in the mix. We can always use added knowlege & glad to share ours with everyone too. Sounds like you have a nice saw & hope you get the enjoyment out of it, that you want. I don't do too many puzzles, but, enjoy doing fret work & portraits. Glad to have you & take care.

            ubgoofy - It looks like there is already a darn good knowledge base here, but I will be more than happy to volunteer anything I can. One of the things I am wanting to try, since subscribing to the magazine, is fretwork.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
