  • Hello all

    I am new to ssw so I will let you all know a bit about myself I am 21 (on Dec 11) I work in Alexander, Manitoba for my family owned art buisness called Dundee Designs I spend many hours everyday behind the scroll saw (30in Excaliber) I mainly work with 16Gage Aluminum and mdf from 1/8 to 1in thick. I think cutting aliminum is the most fun. So that is a bit about me and I better get back to work. Ill get some pics of my work soon. Oh ya, thank you CanadianScroller for all your help

      All new members are welcome here, of course, but it's particularly nice to welcome a scroller who uses metal . There don't seem to be many around.

      Have you any examples of your work to show us?

          Those are pretty cool. Nice work. Welcome to the board and the Canadian Posse that seems to be taking over this site. Good thing for me I'm a double citizen, so I can flip over to whatever side wins without anyone noticing.

              Welcome from me too - and if Jeff can flip between being American or Canadian I guess I can flip between being Canadian and a Brit

              Those are interesting pieces you have there - very nice. I like the mix of metal and (I assume) acrylic on that horse.

              Has Dundee Designs got a website?

                Sorry we dont have a website yet but we will get to it soon you know how how things go work work work!! actualy the horse is 2 layers the top layer is all aluminum and the second layer is a print laminated on aluminum and cut out it gives a cool effect but the pics do nothing for it but the large abstracts are painted with acrylic.

                  Hi Dundee! Those are marvellous pieces, I like the abstracts very much.

                  What blades do you use for cutting aluminium?

                          It is good to see different media and different styles.

                            Welcome aboard Dundee,

                            It seems you bring something fresh with you, I really enjoy some of your work and am also curious about the technical aspects.

                            I especially love pictures 2 to 5 (abstract to cowboy) they are truly innovative in technique and content.

                            Thank-you for joining and wanting to share with us.

                            DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                                by Ennobee
                                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                                Hi Jim.
                                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                                Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                                by jim_mex
                                I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
