  • 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.

              My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

              Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
