  • Hi everyone

    Well I thought this would be a great place for a goof off like me to spend some time. I have been using a scroll saw for about 20 years now to make gifts for the family. Hope to learn something here. I'm kind of hard headed but what can you expect from a hillbilly.

    Hey Bob,

    Welcome aboard. Where are you from? Actually, we have another hillbilly on board. He's from Missouri. You'll here from him I'm sure. Yeah, you're bound to learn something here and most of it good. Considering your 20 years experience, we'll probably learn something from you too. Be sure to post some photos of your work. What is your specialty? What kind of saw do you use? I know, lots of questions, but that's much of what this forum is about. That and encouragement and congratulations and mild humor and .....
    Well, you get the picture.

        Welcome aboard Bob. This is a fantastic site with a lot of good people and good knowledge. After 20 years you probably know more than many of us so we will pick your brain as well as you picking ours. Show us some work if you want to. I did and the comments were all valuable to me. I have yet to have a question that was not answered by several.

          Hello Bob, glad you found us and jumped in by posting, with 20 years of making sawdust with your scroll saw I'm sure you can perhaps teach a few tricks or two, and as others have stated we love pictures, so if you can post some of your past projects we all would love to see them.
          Hillbilly huh? what neck of the woods do you holler from?

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Hey Hillbilly,

                Welcome to what I consider goof off spot number 1. I waste more time during my work day goofing off here but it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble.

                  How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                  I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                  Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                  If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                  Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
