      Hi Kevin

      Welcome to the forum . Which part of Britain do you hail from and what saw have you got? Don't worry about all these strange foreigners - they're really friendly, knowledgable and helpful; what's more, they'll even tolerate some of the more eccentric members discussing cricket!

      I'm sure I knew a 'Pitbull' on a British general woodworking forum once upon a time who was a really great guy - you wouldn't happen to be the same person?

        Welcome aboard Kevin. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.

        Does anyone else think we should start numbering our Kevins, and our Dales.
        boy I'm glad my mom gave me an uncommon name. Not to say Kevin and Dale are commoners, there just seems to be alot of them. LOL

              Hi Kevin, welcome to the board, I've been here only a short while but it's one of the friendliest forums I ever found.

              What sort of stuff are you scrolling? Got any pix to share?

                  Hi Kevin

                  Good luck with the saw - rather you than me! Although to be fair, I've never actually tried one of their scroll saws. It's just that I've been disapponted with so many of their 'own brands' in the past. Moreover, I've got a major grievance against that company due to a kitchen they failed to fit and then failed to reimburse. I got my money back in the end but it was a struggle. I hope you've found a better source of blade suppliers than them.

                  My father is a Wearsider and I know much better than to call anyone from Sunderland a Geordie! Apparently, Jamie Bell who played 'Billy Elliot' said it wasn't the dancing that was the hardest part of the film; it was pretending to be a Newcastle United fan, because he came from Sunderland. Poor lad!

                  Anyway, have fun with your saw and remember to keep your first efforts as a benchmark against which to measure your progress. When you finally produce something you're happy with, see if you can post a piccy. We'd love to see it.

                    Gee, Gill called us not only foreigners but strange!! and just what is
                    (a & p )
                    ( & )
                    (c & r )
                    Talk about a foreign language .

                    Is that a secret code name for a saw brand or something? (At least that's what popped up on my screen). Anyway, WELCOME Kevin. Great to have you here. I know we'll learn just as much from you as you from us.

                      Well...

                      I used to think the Borg was either a Swedish tennis player or something out of Star Trek until I came here. I get the impression that the BORG sheds have some valuable resources for scrollers.

                      Instead of Wallyworld and BORG we have shops such as Asda and B&Q over on this side of the Big Water.

                      Not that I'm suggesting B&Q sell products associated with the letters C, R, P and A. Not much .

                        Don't worry, Betty - I hadn't a clue what this was about either - other than working out the anagram! - and I'm English. There must be some strange linguistic connection between Brits from Sunderland and Worcester

                        There must be a connection between B & Q in the UK and BORG (Home Depot) in N America ... apart from the similarity in the colour and tyepface used by the companies the slogans on the ads are similar too ..

                        UK "You can do it when you B&Q it"
                        N America "You can do it - we can help"

                        Oh and BTW welcome, Kevin. There seems to be an influx of Brits here recently - I think Gill must be having a recruiting drive in the cricket forums ...

                          Hmmm... a lot of people would dispute that there's a linguistic connection between the North East and anywhere else ! Although I live in Worcestershire now, I've got a dark secret in that I was born not far from Sunderland in Hartlepool, so technically I'm a 'Monkey Hanger'

                          For years it's been a struggle to find other Brits with an interest in scrolling. Now they're all popping out of the woodwork, so to speak. I'm delighted, of course, but I can't take any of the credit. What I will do, however, is compliment SSW&C on producing a magazine which has such universal appeal - there's an international market out there that's barely been tapped but Fox Chapel is going the right way about opening it up.

                          I'm sorry if our North American friends are having difficulties following this conversation - blame yourselves for being such inspirational scroll saw evangelists! Just wait until the Italians start yabbering away . The more people from all over the world who scroll, the more likely it is that new techniques will develop and that can only be a good thing.

                            Gill, why don't you scroll the monkey hanging event so all our 'murrican friends know what it's about?
