  • New to scroll sawing from NY

    Hello I am very new to thjs form of sawing wood and am looking forward to learning this method. I have an oppertunity to purchase a scroll saw from a friend and know nothing about scroll sawing. I will post again once I have it at home and am ready to experiment./ If anyone has a simple project to lend me to practice I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you so much and I am looking forward to communicating with the users of this forum.

      Yes I found that also I saved a couple of them to my puter and am looking forward to making a few of my own once I learn how to work the saw. Thank you for your help and I am looking forward to conversing in our quest.

          Wolf8u2,

          There is a great scrollsawing club on Long Island. We are always looking for new addicts to a great hobby.

            I spent 14 years near Newburg, NY while I was in the service and for a while after. I have found a lot of people who think the whole state is like the City. I am quick to point out different. One of my daughters was born at West Point.

            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.

                Welcome to the forum...I have a dark secret I am a native New Yorker (Plattsburgh) as well. I never paid much attention to how many NYers were here until now. Once again welcome aboard.

                  Wow this is cool, I am from the Finger Lakes area. Beautiful country around here and very different from the city. I have never been there myself and don't know if I want to.

                          I'm trying to remember where Corning is, is that near Albany?

                          I have family scattered all across NY, mostly around the Buffalo area, Malone, Massena and on St. Regis. I sure miss the autumns back there.

                              Welcome to the message board and wonderfull world of scrolling. Don't bother with the rest, intarsia is the best.
                              I'm not in or from NY, but I still have my Port Elizabeth and Bayonne Dock Cards from trucking containers from NJ and NY...maybe that counts for something. I've also picked up alot of crushed cars from scrapyards in Corning NY. Just my contribution to cleaning up your part of the state.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
