  • Hi from Chertsey

    Hi to all from Chertsey, Quebec. I am new to scrolling. Have paid for my subscription to Scrollsaw for 2 years and can't wait to see what new patterns I can find in there.
    I will have many questions because there are no scrollers that I know of in my area. Have never seen anyone operate a scroll saw even. Been using mine for a few months and I am really enjoying it so far. Took me months to finally know how to adjust it...LOL

        Bonjour Diane,
        Hi Diane,

        Bienvenue dans un endroit plein de gens qui voudront bien gentiment t'aider en partageant leurs connaissances.
        Welcome to a place full of people that will want to help you by gently sharing their knowledge with you.I sincerely believe that you will find it enjoyable. We like to laugh, laugh at ourselves a little, speak about different things, all that in a respectfull climate.Have fun, don't hesitate to ask lots of questions (the question that is stupid, is the one not asked)

        La philosophie du group c'est un peu que nous on conserve notre savoir en le partageant.
        The group's philosophy is somewhat that we keep our knowledge by sharing it

        Les nouveaux trouvent tous beaucoup d'aide ici.
        Newbies find lot's of help here

        Et finalement deux choses
        And finally two things1) preciously keep the first piece you scrolled (in French it's called a , in case you didn't know)2) we like to see pictures of your work. It lets us, not judge you, but see your evolution and to enable us to give you advice that will let you get better with time.Once again, I welcome you in our little corner of the net, I hope you will have fun with us, and we are now 3 from the Montreal region (you, Eric and me)

        Au plaisir,
        Marcel
        Regards,
        Marcel

        PS: Diane, 90 Min from Montral is still a hec of a lot closer than most people on this forum, so I consider it in my neck of the woods.

                  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.

                    Thank you for your welcome. I did take a spanish class and although it might take me a while I will take the time to find out what was said.

                        Took me a while to realize that you translated Marcel's posting into spanish.
                        It will give me practice. Thanks.

                          Welcome to the forum eh!
                          Here on the Wet Coast we don't speak much French or Spanish.
                          We do drink lots of coffee, eat smoked salmon and BBQ year round...not always due to the nice weather, sometimes due to power outages.

                          I won't try to translate anything to any other language because I don't know any other language, except scrolling.

                          So keep your blades sharp, tension high, feed slow, turn sharp and clean up the sawdust once you are done.
                          Oh and while you are out can you get me a Timmies and a dozen TimBits!

                            Translation appreciated, Marcel ..:-) It's a long time since I learned French at school though I must admit I still understand quite a lot of it - written at least - and a year here with bi-lingual labels on everything has brought a lot back ..lol

                                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                                I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
